Pours all white at first then resolves to pale hazy straw color with a huge creamy white head, which, when it recedes, leaves really nice lacing. Aroma is bread and yeast, citrus, and herbs. Taste is quite good, with citrus, faint malt, pepper, herbs and hops that are just right. Good mouthfeel, moderate carbonation, leaves an aftertaste of melon. Very refreshing summer beer.

Pours white to hazy pale amber color with a creamy white head, good aroma of citrus and sweet maltiness. Wonderful taste, very easy to drink. Has good lacing. I would recommend and drink again.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2005 As I am a witbier and German wiess fan, I knew I wouild like it. I did and though it wasnít Hogarrden it is really great. I just finished it and have a great taste in my mouth. Fruity and tasty it is a little less unique then some but man its good. Mine was in a bottle which is probably the reason it was better than some of you thought. ! In my area this is sold as as wittekirke

Love it. One of my favorites.Very lively head. Taste the caramel and citrus. With a little banana finishing. Tap is much better then the can. Only my thought.

Wittekerke: Sensationally drinkable! Iíve found my favorite witbier! Though this is milder than Hoegaarden and looks scarier than a sprinterís urine sample right before the 100-meter dash, itís so easy to drink and yet still retains the characters of a wit that I like: cloudiness, some spice notes (coriander, pepper) and plenty of wheat. Way underrated, IMHO.

11.2 oz bottle Pours cloudy golden yellow with a nice cream tinge to the color. fruity slightly lemon flavor. (goes very nice extra cold in a glass with smashed lemon slice at bottom) Nice, smooth, slightly sweet finish. Very nice Belgian White

A- This was poured into a frosted Wittekerke glass and served. The body is a hazy straw yellow but I could not tell how hazy due to the glassware used. Big fluffy white head that slowly settled to 1/2 finger. Lots of lacing left behind in the glass. S- Big citrus nose upfront. Lemons hit the nose immediately. Coriander also has a strong presence. Yeast is there but hidden in the background. T- Very similar to the smell. The main character to this beer is citrus. A good balance of coriander, sweet bready yeast, and minimal hops make up the backbone. The taste is consistent all the way through with citrus and yeast lingering. Great-but could use more yeast. P- Medium to high carbonation and full yeasty body. Goes down easy with no thin water-like qualities. O- This a delicious, drinkable, and sessionable witbier. Low on alcohol and big on flavor. Probably best as a summer beer but can be enjoyed year-round. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 08-21-2007 16:23:41

Tested from a bottle. Very yellow color, almost like a Hoegaarden. Lots of spice, peel and wheats. Rated 11/4/03

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Appearance is suitable - as is the aroma. the taste and palate are very clean and refreshing. This is an unadultered witte: but not to be misunderstood as lackluster.! I buy a few each time they are in the fridge.
