Light Gold Coloring With White Head. Fruit, Wheat and some Yeast.. A Good Start, but Could Use Some More Oomph.

would be fine on a hot day, not very complex, no fruitiness,. Slightly cloudy yellow with a lasting fizzy white head. Lemon-pepper dashes. I like the Allagash alternative much more.

badgerben (4479) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 Original Rating November 2, 2004:Golden color with little head. Very weak wheat aroma. Mild lemon taste, but almost no wheat or corriander. A bit watery. Too plain and lacks the visual delight of witbiers. 6/2/6/3/10 <Re-rating July 5, 2008: Hazy yellow with a medium head. Coriander and lemon zest aroma. Lots and lots of coriander flavor. Almost getting up to the coriander-smoothie level. Moderate wheat.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2004
Pours very light yellow gold and hazy. Wheat grass aroma. Lemon, strawberry, flavours. Spice, tinny, minerals. Some fruit oil. Some yeast. Vanilla, and honey. Finish is watery.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 Yellow-gold and mostly clear. Fresh, spring-like nose. Light, grainy malts. Somewhat vinous -- mostly white wine. Spicy, dry and slightly sour. Notes of citrus -- mostly lemon, but also sweet orange. Mild bitterness attempts to surface, but doesn’t, really. Not bad at all, but it doesn’t have a lot of charisma, either.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2004
Pours pale, cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is light. Yeast,floral, spice. Flavor is sweet with a nice spice. Coriander and a little clove. Citrus acidity balance nicely. Finish is dry and crisp. A nice wit.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2005 Hazy Yellow. Subtle aroma of butter toffee, crisp malt, coriander, peach, orange and tangerine. Nice spicing, with notes of coriander, sweet oranges, caramel and butter toffee. I am a sucker for a good white beer but this didn’t quite do it for me.

I experienced this as being a little too thin. Nice aroma when paired with the citrus flavor, but overall a good beer.

White bubbly head. Strong sour aroma, with some sweet citrus character. Slightly cloudy yellow. Medium head. Sour wheat and citrus. Bitter on the tongue. Ok.
