Solid wit. Aroma is of hay, a bit of horseblanket, and a bit of citrus and wheat. Flavor is of hay, clean barnyard, citrus, and a slightly sharp spice near the finish. Nice wit that focuses more on the belgian funky yeast signiture then the lemon and spice.

Cloudy yellow with a billowing head that fades pretty quickly. Flavor is bananna, wheat, yeast, some lemon and a spicy finish (Anis?) Sweet yeasty aroma w. citrus and a little grassy hops.

Cloudy, pale yellow color with a nice white head. Aroma of coriander and citrus. Tastes of coriander and lemon with a touch of sweetness. Very thirst quenching.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004
Tasted in NYC. Tasted at Brewtopia 04. Aroma is of lemon and is citrus. Taste seems like a standard witte - slight corriander and spice hints.

Great, sweet head. Great, sweet-tasting beer. Became, perhaps, my favorite witbier on initial tasting. Tastes salty, lemony, citrus-tinged. Smooth. Not too carbonated. An excellent, refreshing summer drink. Near perfect!

sloth (2625) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Large white head good retention and lace. Hazy light straw/white hued color, great looking brew. Lightly malty, doughy nose with light citrus, spice notes. Light body. Delicate citrus and spice notes, light breadyness. Not a bad wit just a little thin. Dry finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2004
Tap. Looked great, just like i’d want a wit to look like (looks like it does in the picture to the left). Taste is failry OK, the standard lemony/orange peel and corinader flavours are there, nicely tart, softly acidic, refreshing, but it does lack the depth in flavour of a good wit. A bit short, but OK.

blatantdream (78) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2004
Citrusy aroma, nice cloudy yellow color with a big fluffy head characteristic of a good white beer. Pretty good example of a white beer with nice complex flavor incorporating the coriander and fruits. Kind of dry but a nice smooth mouth feel.

Kinz (3507) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2004
I’ve been looking forward to this one. Medium hazy yellow gold, fizzy head faded rather quickly. Aroma of sweaty gym socks, definite locker room notes. Slight grain flavor, with subdued lemon and spice notes. A bit thin in the mouth. Not bad, but I wanted a bit of a stronger showing. Blown away by Allagash in a side by side.
