Looks like a nice cloudy belgian white with a slew of red flakes throughout. No head at all. This smells really nice, flowers, pear, apple, slight hint of cinnamon. The flavor is so subtle and then really builds on itself. This is something that I really like. It begins quite normal with a dry sweet flavor and then builds through a pear, apple peal flavor to a slight tanginess of lemon. The mouthfeel is very smooth. There is no aftertaste but a slight apple peel flavor. Plain but quite enjoyable. I could see how adding a lemon or an orange might pull out some of the more subtle flavors but I'm not one for mixing fruit with my beer (besides bad mexican beer). As the beer warms the citrus flavors emerge a bit more. This is nice.

Shag (2649) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2003
This is a nice little surprise. Aroma is of vanilla, spice, and citrus fruit. Appearance is cloudy yellow. To me this is very similar to a German pilsner in many ways. Flavor is slightly sour. Tastes of oranges, lemons and pears with a creamy mouthfeel. It was only $1 a bottle, so I will be back to pick up more!

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Lite golden color with tiny white head. Appearance is very clear with few lines of bubbles rising from the depths of the glass. Aroma is spices, yeasty, with a tinge of alcohol and lemon. Mouthfeel is foamy/bubbly. Slightly dry finish with hints of spices - maybe paradise or correander? Nice easy drinking Belgian Ale.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Peachy yeast nose. Frothy white nose. Very effervescent. Hazy straw/peach hue. Very wit like. Very citric, light to medium velvety body. Seductive mouthfeel. Yeast, lemon, herbal, very drinkable. Refreshing, complex and very well balanced. A superb beer in my humble opinion.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Lightly hazed straw color with a full white foamy head. Citric peach, with only a hint of herbal spice aroma. Dry malt start with a true lambic finish. In between there are light fruits and farm yeasts. More yeast qualities in this than some other wits. Light sweetness with malt, followed by a bite of hops and yeast acidity. Really nice amlt backbone.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange, with a huge rocky white head that is sturdy and lasting, lacing nicely. Aroma is yeasty, apple, peach, slightly spicy, and some grassiness. Flavor is apple, some sourness, lemon zest, tart, acidic, and quite dry. Medium body, fairly bubbly carbonation.

bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2003
light yellow color with a white head; aroma of yeast and hops; sour taste with a bit of lemon - the aftertaste isn't bad, but the initial taste isi too bitter and sour

Poured a cloudy, lemon yellow color with a large firm white head and nice lacing. Aroma of yeast, spice, and even some hops in there as well. Slightly sour lemon taste as well as other citrus flavors. Very smooth, crisp finish.

What's up with the lonely monk drinking on the bottle? Looks kinda surley on second look. anyways, there are big chunks on the bottom with tiny fine bubbles, much like a champagne. oh yeah. Huge mouth presence.
