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.

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.

Fruity and aromatic with citrus flavors. I had this beer at a tasting and kept coming back to it. Definitley drink it again

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like most witbiers with spiciness prevailing. Appearance is almost like a Budweiser or something; super yellow and minimal cloudiness compared to other whites. The head disappears quickly. Initial taste is good but the aftertaste is slighty funky. Too watery. Actually, the taste of lees is predominant and takes the place of the spicier coriander. A very enjoyable brew, but can't hold its own compared to the better Belgian Witbiers.
