fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2004
Cloudy light amber color. Light aroma, white sugar. Dry, and rather poor mouthfeel. Doesn't seem to be a great idea…

Tessic (836) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2004
First pour showed a golden orange colour with a thick off white head. The beer has a nice malty scent with some citrus notes...orange and/or apple. First sip was very good with moderate carbonation and a light acidic taste. Citrus still present. Very light body with a dry finish. Almost a watery, non existent palate but still very refreshing.

ChazyRPh (582) - Chazy, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Pours a not quite clear amber color with a generous white head. I smell milk. Definately smell yeast and some light citrus, but I also smell milk. I agree that the start is tart, I also taste the citrus. The tartness lingers throughout. A decent brew.

DYCSoccer17 (3288) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Pours slightly couldy apple juice color with a robust white head thats reminiscent of champagne. Odor is of yeast and bananas. Some citrus in there as well? Start is doughy and tangy, leading into a tart and malty finish. An interesting beer.

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2004
Yellow-orange, hazy, reasonably carbonated for its age (almost 4yrs old), but the off-white head swiftly dissipates. Aroma is full of fruit esters, dry apples/pears. Pretty spicy (pepper, clove and another I couldn't quite grasp, but after reading other reviews. Josh's pointed nutmeg out. I rushed to the kitchen, definitely nutmeg. Taste is notably tart, more than it used to be to my knowledge and not necessarily for the best, but still fitting the season appartenance. Quite yeasty. Body is creamy thin to medium like a ginger ale. Finish is yeasty. Perhaps not as good as it used to be, but it won't necessarily be missed much.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2003
Amber beer with a small white head, very little lacing. The aroma is of citrus fruits, a hint of gruyere cheese. The flavour is dry: fruity, some wheat. Missing something (fruit?). Highly carbonated. Refreshing beer. Bottle.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
I like this as an easy drinking everyday beer. Pours coppery - amber with a slightly off-white, significant head. Not a lot of lacing but at least head doesn't completely disappear. Sweet, fruity aroma followed by a dry less fruity taste which lingers slightly.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2003
Pourred a light reddish brew with a beige head with good retention. Smell of sweet fruit and light spice. Very refreshing taste with hard to describe fruity taste (maybe orange, lemon...) Good body. Overall, another great fruit beer from Unibroue.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2003
A medium reddish oak color with a small white head. A light spicy wheat aroma and taste. A nice beer, just lacking a little something in every catagory.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2003
Fruity and yeasty aroma. Weird since this is plain version. Nice head, cloud light amber colour. A refreshing lite wheat. Hard not to look for the fruit. Fits the definition well.
