Oakes (14844) - 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.

bhensonb (13616) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Slightly sour, yet rich, yeast aroma. Hazy lemon color with a decent white head that tries to lace. Better than thin bodied, seems to have banana, with a bit of lemon for flavor. The carbonation is mild and spritzy. Tends to turn creamy as the spritz goes away. There is some clove like spice. The finish is a bit veg, with lemon citrus. Overall it makes me think of a light, spritzy, hefeweizen style. Very tasty.

Visually, slightly darker than a Hoegaarden. Taste and nose of a spiced Belgian witbier. Rated 8/14/02

Tmoney99 (13077) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured hazy yellow with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate yeasty sour citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium citrus sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. My expectations where met.

bu11zeye (12576) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of toasted grain, grassy hops, mustiness, and banana. Flavor of spicy yeast, buttery, and malty.

Lubiere (12401) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2007
A golden wit (?) with,as reproted earlier, ugly looking big floculation of yeast, rather disturbing, and a thin white head. Aroma is doughy, with honey, and sign of oxidation. In mouth, a bland wit with cloves, light maple, and no body. Bottle is about 2 years old. This may be a Du Bocq version.

jcwattsrugger (11902) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2010
11.2oz bottle-thanks DavidM for sharing-pours a foamy white head with yellow color. Aroma is juniper branches, light malt. Taste is juniper branches, light malt. Lots of effervescence.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Poured a medium hazy yellow with a huge, huge head. Some small floaties. Aromas of citris, lemons, yeast, bananas and light spices. Great smelling, too bad the taste was a complete let down. Tasted like water with very subtle citris. How can a beer that smells good taste sooo bad!

Dogbrick (10889) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Pale yellow/gold color with a thin fizzy white head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is lightly malty with a yeast presense. Light-bodied with a grain character along with spice and yeast flavors. Very straightforward and refreshing. The finish is short and clean with some hops and spice aftertaste. Above average summer fare.
