Fantastic witbier. True to style with the coriander and spice notes. Once again, Weyerbacher delivers. Considerable complexity.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The latest in a long line of Wits sampled recently, this one had a loose quickly vanishing head. The aroma was basic Wit, but the flavor is much spicier and more complex than any others I have sampled. Does not mean I particularly like it, however. Too much Weyerbacher House Character and a paper thin palate. Sometimes complex does not mean enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lightly cloudy effervescent champagne. Lots of orange spice in the aroma. Body is thin and citrusy sour with little complexity. Pretty smooth, but still an average witbier when compared to its imported counterparts.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2004 Rerate: nice aroma, heavily spiced. Cloudy body, but not hefty enough. Watery. Still, good. Original: Really good. Not super light and fluffy, but not like some that are darker, heavier. Strives for the middle of the road, albeit with relatively little lasting carbonation. A good balance on spices, wheat, alcohol. Well made.

Very light and citrusy beer. Not quite in the same category as Hoegarden, but I did not complain. Carbonation was evident, but I tasted mainly lemons and oranges. Capped off the last days of summer perfectly.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer has a sixth catagory (SOUND). Place your ear over the beer and here it talk. Sounds like a bacon splattering in grease. Very carbonated as expected. The beer immediately smelled like oranges and lemons. The appearance is very much like a Belgium white beer. It is a cloudy yellowish beer with a slight orange tint that resembles mountain dew. It is highly carbonated and very citursy. The beer has very little hop flavor. In fact it almost tastes like a sweet malt beverage. It is very similar to lemon soda. The beer is very drinkable and refreshing but don’t expect to compare to a high alcohol content Belgium beer. Not bad on a hot summer day just before a barbeque.

very nice wit. cloudy yellow color, generous white head. lots of spices in the aroma though a coriander/clove aroma dominates.
taste is spicy but with some citric notes.
another pleasant beer from this underrated brewery.

Better than Blanche de Bruxelles or Wieckse, not as good as Hoegaarden.
