RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Tap. Aroma: Light citrus (mostly lemon), coriander spice, and yeast. Appearance: Very pale yellow and hazy. Head was full, bright white and fluffy. Decent lacing. Flavor: Citrus flavor presents first, with notes of Lemon and orange. Spiciness follows soon after. Mostly coriander, but some decent pepperiness as well. Yeast is also prevalent, but masked a little by the citrus/coriander. Palate: Light bodied, and a little watery. Carboantion was lively but appropriate. Finish was dry and clean. Overall: A good starting point for the style, but far from the best witbier there is.

Bottle. Hazy gold with white head. Aroma is citrus and spicy. Flavor is malt, citrus, and spices. Very well balanced. I consider this beer to be a classic Belgian White, however, I feel that there are other Belgian Whites out there that are comparable, but less expensive.

Hazy pour with a fairly long lasting head. Mild spices and decent citrus nose and taste. Very refreshing. Great summer beer.

12 oz bottle. Very cloudy yellow beer, with a huge frothy yet tight pure white head. Gorgeous lace. Very zesty ,spicy aroma but also a sort of lush creamy aroma also. Coriander like spice comes to the fore after a minute of nostril stretching!! Nice smooth spicyness..i know that seems like a contradiction but its what I get, yeasty, apricots, some hints of papaya..and a nice mellow bitterness at the end. Very nice mouthfeel, quite thick and smooth yet far from boring. A very easy going belgian, goes down very well in hot weather. An all round good beer.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Poured to a hazy golden color, with snow-white head, that lingered awhile, then dissipated to a thin white lace Aroma was spicy hops, with a hint of fruit. Flavor was very strongly spiced, mostly clove, and the finish was most refreshing. A very god beer for a hot summer night.

one of the best white beers Belgum has to offer. Strong coriander taste,smell is very crisp. This beer compliments almost any food. Color is very pale and cloudy,with a nice foam top. The coriander leaves somewhat of a nice after taste.

One of the best Belgian beers i have ever tasted. Honestly think it taste better from a bottle than the tap. An orange is a must. One of the best beers you can buy from your local grocer.

Bottle. Pours light hazy yellow with a white head. Sweet, citrusy, yeasty aroma. Flavour is pretty much the same. Notes of coriander in the finish. Smooth palate. 11-07-06.
