ganache (5903) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottled (75 cL - woo!). Pale yellow pour, like lemonade, hazy and crisp. Foamy, frothy white head. Aroma fills the room: dusty, yeasty, fruity, and yes, there’s some coriander there, too. Controlled sweetness, short-to-no aftertaste, creamy mouthfeel. Tastes as it smells, it is a wheat beer, after all. Very very mild sourness. Slight citrus. Alcohol perfectly hidden. Bonus point for subtlety, but I’m not getting worked up over this one - far less challenging than, say, a Leipziger Gose. Then again, mildness is probably this one’s virtue.

Beer5000 (6489) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2006
750ml bottle. Perfect, typical light white cloudy wit beer. Gentle, fresh aroma, some fruitiness, citrus and yeast. Very refreshing flavor, not to sweet and not to much citrus, moderate on the typical banana flavor. Mild, smooth, well balanced wit beer. Not exactly a challenge for the adventure seeking beer drinker, this is just a very pleasant commercial version of a wit. Could have one of these anytime.

Mental (7) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 25, 2006 does not count
Bottle. A light white hazy beer with a medium head which dissapeared quickly. Very little bubbles. The nose was of flowers, vanilla and wheat. The palate was very light, almost no taste, and the flavor was mostly of wheat, and a little of sth i couldn’t put my finger on, but it was sweet. Overall, although i don’t like this style very much, not too good, but not too bad at all.

kingfiogojr (78) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Above average amber belgian white. Not destroyed by spices in the way that many belgian whites have been. Sampled at Room Temperature, pours pale yellow with murky appearance, strong carbonation and a thick white head. Has a very yeasty taste, mixed with wheat. Slight fruit hints.

3.7
buu (10) - USA - MAR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Uniquely-flavored witbier, however commercial. Pale golden, and hazy. Nose of subtle urine (not off-putting) and yeast. A distinctive "mild lemonade" flavor.

4.1
swiseman (505) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 24, 2006
pours a perfect head which results in plenty of heavy lacing as you drink. nice flavours - especially on the finish which is extremely fruity - banana and orange tastes which turn into a mildly hoppy aftertaste. The only problem I have with this beer is it is a little thin and initial tastes are minimal.

3.6
patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 bottle - Pours pale yellow and cloudy with a moderate head. The aroma is of citrus and yeast. The taste has hints of citrus, moderate sweetness, and is very well balanced. The finish is mild and smooth. This is a quality brew.

3.9
dj (620) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: APR 1, 2006 Bottle, 750ml, 4.9% ABV. Average mostly diminishing head. Aromas of cirtus and corriander. Cloudy yellow appearance. Finely balanced flavour of cirtus, corriander and wheat with a hint of yeast in the finish. One of my favourite beers.

3.3
saxo (18302) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Nice big head with medium duration. Pale pale yellow. High carbonation. Taste is fruity with just the right amount of citrus and acidity - which means not too much like many others.
