UPDATED: JUN 13, 2008 Have never recovered from the electric shock of first tasting this in Holland as a young novice. Was it manly to be seen drinking this?? Was it beer?? Was it right?? Did it really look like lemon meringue and taste like Savlon and spiced banana milkshake??Yes it did, and you all know you love it. (Re-rate, 29/04/08) 2 years and 1376+ beers later, my love of this beer remains undimmed. Still has a certain peppery-milky something about it....

Pint, off tap. Thick, hazy yellow in colour, with a fair white head which disappeared. Aroma of citrus fruits, wheat and straw. Fruity, rich soft taste with definte hints of citrus fruits and wheat. Similar in the finish. Tasty refreshing witbier, though not the best.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Pours milky golden with lasting white foamy head. Aroma of lemon, citrus zest, bananas (faint) and wheat. Flavor is mild and slightly sour with a predominant elements of citrus wheat and yeast.

On tap at Pickles Steakhouse. Pours a hazy/milky golden yellow with an average white head. Aroma of lemon, wheat, banana, coriander and some other citrus. Flavors of the same with a light sourness. Unfortunetly this was served with a lemon which was immediately taken out when it got to our table...but that may have contributed to more of the lemon and less of the orange that I was picking up. Very solid Witbier that more and more bars have these days.

I foud the wheat flavor a bit too overwhelming. Not my favorite wheat, but I wiil gladly drink again.

Still one of my favorite Belgian whites. Spicy and citrusy aroma, lasting head, and looks exactly like a witbier should. Although its somewhat of a macrobrew now its still the standard wit against which others are judged.

Yum in a cup. I can drink this all day long. Strong banana nose that tastes like bubble gum. If you put a lemon in this, you deserve to be slapped. Unless you’re a gal. In that case, do whatever you want. You’re driving anyway.

Bottle. Pours cloudy with fluffy head. Aroma and taste of citrus. I’ve been waiting for a pale beer that is just right for the summer time. I may have found it.

Not crazy about aroma or appearance, but wonderful spicy, orange flavor, slightly sweet.

An early favorite. Perfect beer for a hot day. Sweet citrus and smooth inviting texture.
