Big,white head, pale yellow,hazy color. Deep wheat aroma. Super fresh! I'm wishing I had more food/spice experience to conjure more descriptors. The regular gang are in attendance:coriander, curacao,anything else? Very bright, floral, honeyish, lemony (but don't put a lemon in it, please! Let beer be beer!( Soft texture, wonderful drinkability, some graininess, but still creamy, luxurious. I could drink this by the pitcher on a hot summer day! Tastes great anytime, though.

Crockett (1071) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
I guess this is the correct beer. And that was a tiny bottle. Honey golden pour. Soapy small head. Grassy aroma. Citric honey flavours standout. Soap and some coriander. Sweet and mild. A good example but a little sleepy in the finish. Palate is average. Good overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6458) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 This was the first wit I really fell back when I was really into wits. That phase has passed now. +++ Sampled from an 11.2 oz can this brew pours a pale yellow color with a medium sized white head that left decent lacing. Very cloudy with lots of sediment. A light scent that is sweet and spicy with some citrus definitely coming through. Light lemon flavor. Very mild wheat taste. Just a hint of spice. Medium length finish. A nice and refreshing wit

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 250 ml Wittekerke bottle (best before May 2004). Usual pale hazy yellow colour, reminiscent of pineapple juice. Rather dim aroma with, unusually for a witbier, some dry malty notes and little in the way of citrus. Can’t say I picked up any coriander, or other spices, either. Much the same on the palate. Thin and bland with a dry finish, again with malt rather than acidity. The zingy citrus crispness that I expected was entirely absent. Perhaps I just got a substandard bottle but, overall, I found this drinkable, but lifeless.

The aroma is dominated by citrus. The color is an unclear yellow and it has a fine head. The flavor is complex with notes of citrus, malt, corriander, youghurt and yeast. I don't like the youghurt sourness in a beer.

Hazy yellow with solid white cloud cover. Yeasty nose. Smooth and lightly sweet and quietly mellow.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Bottle pours a cloudy whitish-yellow with a rocky white head.   Low on carbonation and lacing.   Aroma is of corriander and fruit.   Taste reveals the fruit flavor, honeysuckle perhaps, as well as a light citrusy spice.   Definately a wheaty mouthfeel.   Finish is crisp, and smooth, but a bit light.   This one could use a bit more spiciness.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2004
Wheat beer in a can,now thats new to me.Cloudy straw color,small white head that had a small amount of lasting power.The aroma was Sweet and wheaty with a cerealish side and fruity side coming on as well,mild spicing as well.The taste was wheat and lightly citrusy with a decent amount of spice and very light malt.Nothing special but still worth trying.

All in all for this being in a can and me being ready for this 4 busk sixer to be crap I was impressed. Certainly not GREAT, but refreshing and with more flavor than expected. Light, maybe even very light, but still the coriander and other pleasant elements came through - as subdued as they may have been.
