the taste is vastly disappointing after the very enticing nose and the gorgeous pour; cloudy and opaque with a nice frothy head. the flavor and palate - not much to say as there is really nothing to it. i might give this beer another chance, but not on my nickel.

Cloudy, pasty white colour. Crisp, clean and refreshing. Sweet, then spicy, then sweet with an overall doughy flavour. A great summertime thirst quencher.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Nice Belgian wheat aroma - mild on the banana, but it a neat tinge of cedar, like you find in cigar tubes. The flavor isn't very deep, and it generally tastes like the aroma, though the cedar is more pronounced. The color of fresh pear meat, good label and bottle. Spritzy finish, a little watery mouthfeel. Overall, I was hoping for more -- it wasn't as fruity or spicy as I like a wit to be, but this is very drinkable.

PorterPounder (6523) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Very distinctive to say the least. Not much to the aroma - detect a slight bubblegum tint to it. Appearance is quite nice - cloudy and hazy with a thin white head - no lacing. Flavor - sort of sprucey - very tangy. Initially Aurelius agreed it was like the wood inside of a cigar box - toned down after settling though. Finishes a bit bitterly - but still a decent wit.

Great colour for a white ale, I always like a nice clear glass of witbier! Not too much in the nose, some normal white tastes-cloves, bananas, etc. Not the best white during the taste, but not the worst. A decent flavour, but I definately expected more from a belgian!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Re-Rate 12/29/02: The beer pours from the glass a somewhat hazy golden amber color, the head impressive in size, bright white and the consistency creamy with fine sheets of lace to coat the glass. The aroma of orange peels, malt, citrus fresh and pleasing to the senses. Front is lightly sweet, the top skimpy in feel, the finish biting in its acidity, the hops personable and the aftertaste dry and long lasting. A nice change of pace, a real thirst quencher and a decent beer, not great, maybe “Average” is a better term.

ewww. what a disappointing six pack i just purchased. sour/skunky musty aroma. nice cloudy pale golden color. very thin watery mouthfeel. but ewww. it tastes metallic. i can honestly say i’ve never experienced a tinny tasting belgian white until now. and it’s gross! yuck.

Light cloudy yellow/pineapple juice appearance. There were huge chunks of yeast floating around in the bottle but somehow dissappeared when the beer was poured, I asked Oakes about this and he simply said "don’t complain". Hmm. Anyway, the nose suggests notes of light citrus and yeast. The body is incredibly bland and thin, if you like the taste of blood in your mouth, this is your beer. Blood/iron notes prevail ending in a semi-sweet and dry finish. There were also notes of lemon throughout the beer, but this did not lend to any tartness. Not what a belgian wit is supposed to be. Both beers that I had from this brewery were a large dissappointment.

Oakes (13879) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2002
Opaque yellow. Plastic on the nose, with a hint of spice. Malt accented. Light, bland, lacking in notable hop or yeast.

Belgium can produce a good beer in any category. They happen to start the Belgian white style. This is more than likely better than any white beer outside of Belgium.
