Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Head dissipates fast. Hazy golden color. Orange honey nose. Unispiring flavor, no zest or character. Fairly balanced with a clean finish. Pales in comparision to other Belgium Wits.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 24, 2003
Golden with just a touch of cloudiness. A sweet nearly melon like scent with hints of spice. A bit thin but fair. An average wit, I expected more from Unibroue

I call this Fin du Monde's pansy brother. Crisp, fruity, but a bit weak. I tried it cold, and I tried it a bit warmer, but neither caught me and gave that oomph that I've come to expect from this brewery. Overall, quite mediocre.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2003
Sweet orange honey aroma. Hazy straw colour with big pillowy long-lasting head. Orangey citrus flavour with some tartness and a light malt base. Mouthfeel is crisp and effervescent like sparkling cider or champagne. It's a nice beer if a bit on the timid side. The falvours are all there - just wish they were stronger. Bottle.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2003
Fruity and aromatic with citrus flavors. I had this beer at a tasting and kept coming back to it. Definitley drink it again

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Nice Belgian white. Great aroma, probably my favorite thing about this one. I like to stir the yeast and pour it in, too. Nice slightly malty body with all that complexity that comes with this style, and a refreshing finish too. Good stuff but not my favorite style.

Boutip (5181) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2003
Light golden brew with a nice foamy white head. Sweet refreshing taste with a fruity aftertaste. Good Unibroue yeast taste. This is one of the very good witbier, better then Hoegarden but not to the level of Blanche de Bruges.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Light, whispy, white head. Light golden color, not very much haziness for a witbier. Lots of carbonation. Sweet, floral aroma with hints of honey. Some yeast as well. Yeast carries over onto the palate from the nose. Feels hazy on the tongue. I'd agree with thehoff, not Hoegarden but better than Blue Moon.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2003 Beautiful cloudy white golden hues. Smells of slight lemon scent, with a citrus flavor evident in the first taste. Definitely a white beer, very nice not coming out of Belgium. Not quite a Hoegarden, but better than Blue Moon.

JoeM500 (1907) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Slightly hazy, golden beer has a huge frothy head and interesting yeasty, biscuity aroma that offered little hints of citrus and vanilla. Long, lingering biscuit flavor was quite enjoyable, although I expected more spice. Middle was very toasty and rich with tangy citrus notes mixed in. Finish was rather bland, but overall it is a fresh wheat that I thought leaned toward the American Wheat style.
