Fruity and spicy fruity. Smokey amber color. Great beer. White head, one of the better beers I have had, but I still prefer Delerium Belgian Ale.

Fine sample of a Belgian White. While not as good as an overseas witbier, the flavor is very distinct. I like the unfiltered beers, as most home brewers do. I do not add the orange, as I just enjoy it straight. Good beer!

Good aroma and taste. Nice wheaty appearance, good aroma, Pours a beautiful orange amber color. Served with a twist of orange really sets this beer off. Refreshing carbonation. Good beer!

Mass produced beer that is a welcome change from all the bitter beers Ive been drinking tonight. This beer is traditionally served with oranges which I dont particularly car for bit nonetheless gives it an exotic flare. The taste rings out with all sorts of citrus fruits from orange, lemon, lime, to passion fruit and kiwi. Also the combination of the citrus flavors combined with the wheaty nature of this beer makes it unique and a commonly asked for beer in many pubs. Nice appearance and nature so give it a go.

This beer taste and smells like fruitloops swimming in urine. seriously. I poured this out immediately and didnt even recycle the bottle. Memphis needs to stick to churning out good music and stop brewing Belgian whites.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 11, 2005
A soapy aroma that smells like soap and lemon shavings. Murky yellowish white hue with small amount of head that dies. Flavor is zesty and of lemon shavings with a dash of spice or pepper. Only picked it up because it was a 6-pack on sale and it was a new item on the shelves.

Smooth enough thought it was a micro. Nice wheaty appearance, good aroma, smeet though citrusy. Refreshing carbonation

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2006 Even though I love Belgian whites I was disappointed by this beer. It smelled pretty good looked pretty good but didnt taste like a true Belgian white should. #1 Its watered down #2 Its light fruity taste is somewhat off. #3 Astringent tasting hops. Having said that its better than most macro brews.
