Murky straw colored beer with a smallish white head. The aroma is the most interesting thing about this beer. Citrus dominates the nose with compliments of yeast and spice. Light bodied and easy going down. Initially hit with a mild sweetness and carbonation. Yeast takes over the flavors and is then replaced in the finish by a mild hop bitterness. There are some interesting characteristics to this beer.

BBB63 (5964) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2004
750ml bottle: Pours to a hazed straw hue with a fizzy but long lasting white head and above average lace. The aroma has notes of wheat, lemon, orange zest, corriander, banana yeast esters. The taste starts with a crisp dose of citric and wheaty undertones. This is backed by a smooth yeast presence and a kick of white pepper like spice on the finish. The feel is crisp and lively, refreshing as expected within the style. Overall an well made witbier and very quaffable. Get ya some.

Notes taken from mid-August tasted, so the climate was perfect for this brew... Hazy, pale straw-yellow color, getting close to peach, with a big, though brief, white head.. Aroma, all citrus and spice, even from armís length away...as for a deeper inspection: the perfect fit for a wit,delicate spices, light but lively fruit... Now to sip, ..beautiful interaction with the tastebuds, a magical, lilting ballet on the palate...thrilling texture... A luxuriant ale, a brew to slowly savor and enjoy with reflection on a summerís day, a perfect companion for the picnic basket...light bodied, but brimming over with flavor. I love a good witbier, and this rankis among the best Iíve ever had.

09.03.04 750ml bottle. Pours a pale straw color with massive white head, looks like a wit. NIce aromas of corriander, banana, lemon. Tart and light, the body is crisp, the palate lively. Citrus and spice are pleasant and refreshing and not overdone. The yeastiness give a nice Belgian stamp to the beer. Not really the complexity of the best wits Iíve had, but at least as quaffable and plenty likeable as a wit should be. In all, fresh wheat, citrus, spice, yummy.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2004 Bottle pours a cloudy pale yellow, slight peach tint, large rocky head, with attractive lacing. Aroma of corriander and lemon zest. Forwardly wheaty, slight spice and citrus flavor, but very subtle. Finishes crisp, and quick, without much spicing to be savored. Good mouthfeel and body, but its not as spiced as I like my Witbiers. † Thanks goes out to Jeffc666 for the trade!

Fiannly a Witbier that can be in the same league as Hoegaarden. Had a 750 ml bottle of this stuff and it was divine. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Harsh near the end, but a good time overall.

A bit disappointed by this Belgian White. Had it off the tap at Monkís in Philly. Hazy yellow color with a good head. Banana aroma throughout. It was good but just didnít set itself aprt from anyother BW Iíve had.

Hazy, cloudy, and fizzy - but all in a good way. Itís kinda cool having a Belgian brewery in New York state.

Hazy light pineapple yellow color - light fizzy white head. The nose is light citrus with a hint of banana. A light yeastiness and lightly spiced. The body is spritzy with a light yeastiness and a bittersweet yeasty middle. Finishes with a light citrus note.
