Very blond, cloudy, with a huge head. Citrus aroma. The taste is citrus with a hint of yeast. There is also a hint of white vine in the taste. The taste is rather short though. It has an almost neutral finish. It is refreshing witbier. I have had better but also worse.

For such an outstanding brewery this beer seems far too typical: standard Belgian White. I wish I had all of the Unibroue Whites to taste against this, but if I had that much money I'd just fly to the damn brewery where it must taste much better anyway. Sparkling white, gigantic head, and chock full of Belgian yeast - all standard issue. Tasty, but I'll take the Trois Pistoles thank you.

another cloudy witbier, makes you thing they are designed like that of something :) otherwise, an average witbier, too much yeast overpowers the lemon flavors

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2003
Cloudy pale yellow appearance. Rich lemon and yeast aroma. Taste is the same with just a hint of banana.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Cloudy with dirty pale lemon appearance. Huge frothy white head. Aroma is mildly yeasty with light citrus and very light spice. Tastes like a sweet lemonade with touches of malt and apple. Light carbonation and very little aftertaste. Not quite what I expected. This is very easy to drink. It may be my first belgian white, so I must try more.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2003 Very pale golden beer, not as hazy as you'd expect from a white. The flute glass rapidly fills with a big white head that lets citrus smell get through. Very easy to drink, it's spiced, but could show more flavor

Lovely stuff. One of Unibroue's more "drinkable" brews. Very flavorful but not overpowering.

NectarFarm (128) - Calgary, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
So much potential! It has all the ingredients for an amazing witbier but just come up short in the flavour department. If only the cloves and spices were a bit stronger it would be a real masterpiece. Pours a perfect wirbier hazy white/yellow with a pure white head. Starts a bit bland but makes you believe theres potential. It unfortunately finishes the same way. Still a nice witbier, doesn't even touch the hoegaarden.

jercraigs (8220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 July 2007. Draft at beerbistro. Hazy light pastel yellow body with a good sized creamy white head and decent lacing on the glass. Moderate aroma is sweetly yeast, pleasant light sweet lemon and lemon rind. (7+) Flavour issimilar, sweet yeasty pale malt is contrasted by a tart wheaty note to the finish. More light lemon that varies from sweet to less sweet. (7+) Medium palate is effervescent a la Unibroue with lots of tiny bubbles. Very nice. Not super complex but consistently a nice quaff. 7+/3+/7+/3+/17 - 3.7<P> July 2003. Hint of spice... last sample I had on tap was a bit thin, almost watery. Might have been a bad pour. Refreshing hints of fruit and spice. 6/4/6/3/14 - 3.3

Frank (3205) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2003 Light hazy yellow. A fruity banana nose with a citrus note. It could deal with a little more cloves and spice but as it is it's a very nice wit.
