This is the beer I used to drink before discovering the world of RateBeer. I had it yesterday because it was a $2 draft and it still has some good sweetness with its coriander, orange and spice tones. It still has a decent body but it seems to go flat easily and it really isnt interesting enough for me to call it a Belgian White. Drinkibility is there but the taste is above average at best.

Murky, golden/tan, white head fading fast. Ive always liked the packaging, so an extra point for appearance. Aromas starts dry and floral with lemon, but turns rather harsh and nutty as it warms, with an inkling of burnt toast. Spicy flavor, mildly sweet/sour on a wheat base. Dry palate, but leaves a phlegmy throat and roof-of-mouth. Too unrefined to be a good Wit.

Very citrusy and very smooth. Aroma has a distinct fruity, tangerine almost smell to it. Taste is unlike many beers ive tasted probably due to the distinct citrus flavor. The aftertaste, however, is one of the best ive ever experienced as it is very subtle yet hangs around for a while. I drank this out of the bottle poured into a pint glass.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 Bottle. Cloudy white head. Very citrus...seems like oranges and coriander to me. Not bad but everything is average. Refreshing, however and so it has to be considered successful.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - SEP 10, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Bottle. Drank this straight out of the bottle after consuming more than a few drinks. It was quite tasty - I was surprised, kind of spicy, light, and fruity. Almost tasted like blueberries and/or citrus to me, though I must admit that I was (still am) intoxicated. Seemed very light on the palate, crisp, and refreshing. Id like to try it again when Im sober. Edit: Tried it again sober and I still likeit. Im surprised.

First one was returned because of the fruit slice in my glass. Decent wheat grass- like flavors along with a distinct lemon brightness. An attempt at unusual "Belgian-style" spicing, mainly coriander. Not that bad.

Thin, white head. Slight citrusy aroma. Citrus taste-definitely can taste the orange. Smooth, refreshing beer. Very slight carbonation. Sweet aftertaste.
