papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Cloudy pale lemon yellow color with a small white head. Aroma is spicy with hints of leather. Flavor is weak apple, grape and a little clove. Aftertaste is dry with hints of correander and leather.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2004 A good beer but it tastes like a watered down Don de. Now Don de is great so this is still very nice but unless you don't drink often the Don de is the beer

BroueNeault (158) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2003
Hazy pale yellow beer with a thick head. Very pleasant fruity aroma of citrus and yeast. The taste (yeast and citrus) is a bit deceptive, though. A good refreshing beer, but I agree with the others that this is not the best one Unibroue is brewing.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 12, 2003
This beer pours a cloudy yellow with a strong foamy head and lots of carbonation. Smells a little of citrus and some other fruits. The taste is very smooth and drinkable - very sweet and enjoyable.

SilkTork (5372) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2003
I poured it into the glass and drank some. Distinct lack of character.

I poured some back into the bottle, shook it hard and poured it back into my glass. Distinct lack of character.

I stirred the glass of beer vigorously for several minutes then drank it again. Distinct lack of character.

There is an awareness of a witbier aroma - slight pepper, slight clove, and slight moist air along with a hint of orange. But the taste is way too subtle to be interesting. There's a witbier lurking around here somewhere, but it's too timid to come out and play. I got some bubblegum, some spice and some wheat, but in a murky and laid back manner. Not sure what Unibroue are after here - a gentle witbier that doesn't offend anyone? I think there's a big difference between playing safe and not playing at all.

bierkoning (10911) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2003
Frothy head. Golden orange color. Milky, slightly hoppy aroma. Fairly thick, especially for a white beer. Grapes, yeast, milk and chalk. Good lacing. Not bad, but nothing special.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Champagne-like head and carbonation. Crystal clear body with a color that is similar to a full-bodied white wine. Yeast and lemon aromas. Grape and citrus flavor and tartness. Some sourness and light sweetness in the aftertaste. Light body, but pleasing to the palate. This is a refreshing and delicate beer with many white wine qualities. I used half of this bottle in a delicious trout marinade.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Light spicy aroma, hint of coriander. A little thin bodied, with some crisp wheatiness, moderate spice level. I'm craving a tarter yeast profile, more body and better balance.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Hah! I was surprised to pour this and smell wheat! A witbier, eh? I had no clue Unibroue brewed one of these tasty concoctions. But, I digress. Has that typical wheaty, spicy witbier aroma that diffuses from the cloudy yellow body. Tastes like Celis White, with less sour citrus and a slightly heavier reliance on spices. Thin-bodied per style, but the carbonation is lively, which hinders the smoothness a bit. I would end my review with a witty remark, but that would be over-the-hop.

Not being a fan of whites this is good. It's good because it tastes like water. I can't beleive this is from Unibroue. This is a white I would expect from Coors. Actually, it's not that bad, and is very drinkable on this hot day. It's just kind of watery and boring
