Creamy beige color with thick white frothy head that leaves behind good lacing. Delicate aroma of yeast and fruit. Well balanced spice and citrus flavor complements aroma to a tee and yield to an even, dry finish. What I like here is that these flavors aren’t exagerrated and are easy to enjoy. Palate falls short of expectations. With a creamy appearance, one would be inclined to expect a creamy palate... It’s actually pretty watery but well carbonated. Refreshing beverage!

Cloudy yellow in appearance with no head. I’m no expert on white beers, but to me this was just like any other pretty much. Bland, gassy and full of cereal malts.

First white beer that I ever tried. Had it again recently and enjoyed the light, but simaltaneously complex taste. I really did not like it the first time, but the beer proved to taste very good the next times I tried it after I had already tried a wider variety of white beers.

[069-20061021] Tap @ Clocktower (Ottawa,ON). Wheat, lemony hints, some exotic spices in the aroma. Lightly cloudy, wheatfield-coloured body with a medium-lasting white head. Flavour is wheaty yeast with astringent citrus notes, all of which are in the aftertaste. Lightly complex with an acidic mouth. Nice beer for a patio (in the Summer, I’d say, though everyone was watching the snowboarder competition outside at the time -- grumbling over CT’s lack of their own beer to offer).

Standard white look and smell, this is nice. Much better than the wittekerke, smooth and uncomplicated. Still, it is a little too wheaty for me.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 Light, refreshing, goes well with several foods, from a great steak to a pizza. Excellent choice after a round of golf in the hot sun.

On tap in Pittsburgh, PA. Very fruity taste. Nice golden color with little head. A little sting on the tongue. Goes down very smoothly. Try it; you won’t be disappointed.

3.8
Dezzilu (226) - Whitmore Lake, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Extremely light flavor with little to no head. This is the quintessential light summer beer, that actually has a kick with 4.9% alcohol. This beer does what most white’s and lights sold in American don’t do, delivery flavor while beening non-filling and easy drinking. (I do however love Blue Moon). You could never go wrong with this beer in a crowd, unless you are in a crowd of ho-bo’s or old Irishman.

TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2006
330 mL bottle. Translucent white-gold with little to no head. Strong cloves in the aroma, with a bit of burnt toast. Tastes like. . . well . . . coriander and orange peel. Who knew? A little metallic/bitter on the finish. Somehow, it works; it’s tasty, crisp, and original.
