guzzler67 (1532) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Hazy, pale gold appearance with a small head and good lacing. Grapefruit-like nose. Nice balance of spice and fruit in the taste. Smooth finish.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Cloudy yellow but tons of lemon aroma. The taste was as expected (lemony and refreshing). Perhaps a bit more citrus than a Hoegaarden but very similar.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Cloudy yellow with citrus -- particularly lemon -- aroma and flavor (like a lemon, kind of scorches the tongue). Nice summer beer to take the place of lemonade. Overall, an Okay beer, just not very impressed with the style.

caesar (5403) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2003
Typical white appearance. Aroma of lemon and coriander. Also quite typical white taste, though a bit more watery. Refreshing palate. Average white.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Citrus flavors with a yeasty finish. It had a carbonated/metallic mouthfeel that was attributed by the can but wasn't that aweful. Excellent beer from a can!

omhper (20174) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy pale yellow. Lemony aroma. Sweet, clean and mild, obvious wheat flavour, and notes of orange liqueur.

jerohen (2044) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2003
Light yellow coloured, thick lasting head. Aroma of coriander, quite watery flavour. Average witbier.

stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Not bad, but kinda one dimensional and not really an amazing wit. But really refreshing and definatley a session beer.

JorisPPattyn (8095) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2003
(draught) Very pale, hazy, yellow. Fumed glass impaires real assessment). Very thick, white head, very stable. Nose gives lots of coriandre, not much citrus, and wheat. Taste: coriandre, a bit of vanilla, wheat, but no acidity from the wheat. Quite dry mouthfeel. Typical characterless Belgian wit.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Sold in Ohio (USA?) as Wittekerke. I'm a big fan of wheat brews, especially those from Germany. I figured that this one might be a welcome change. Upon pouring, I was greeted with a highly skunky aroma, which was *very* surprising. Literally no head. Cloudy yellow colored brew... I like that in a wheat brew. Ok... Time to taste. Hmm... Kinda plain. Weak and citrus tasting. Pretty boring, actually. Even Blue Moon (Coors) Belgian white is better than this, and it's an American brew that *emulates* this style. Definately not worth the $7.99 for a 6-pack, especially because the bottles aren't even 12 ounces. Boring. Bland. Not very wheat tasting. It'll quench your thirst, but it seems like a cash-in on the Belgian fanaticism. I can see a big "Belgian white" trend coming on here. Watch. In two years, this stuff will be on tap in ever major beer and wings chain.
