50 cl Draft in original giant glass. Pours a hazy golden white color with a very thin white head. Great WitBier.

Very hazy citron yellow with small white head and some carbonation. Aroma is yeast and wheat and some crisp citron fruit. Very fresh aroma indeed. Taste is something similar to German weizen but not so sweet, extremely freshing beer. I have to try this tapped, which I haven't found for a long time.

I’ve been drinking this beer a long time now and it tastes a lot different to me now than it did eight to ten years ago. It was about the same time that they changed the label from a square yellow to the newer metallic circle that I noticed the change. I’m not sure if that’s psychological or if there was a real recipe change, but I like the older beer significantly more. I’d probably rate it closer to a 3.8 today. This rating is the older beer. Pours light yellow with a nice fully aromatic citrus head. Taste is lemon citrus, light wheats, coriander lemon and orange zest and light spices. Rated 2/2/2000

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2006 Bottle. Hazy, pale yellow with with dense white head. Orange, coriander, banana and yeast in aroma. Light in flavour with a fizzy mouthfeel. Dry, but unhoppy aftertaste. Works well as a thirst-quencher, but tends to be a little too much after some bottles. (050927)

FatPhil (17075) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 4, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2010 330ml bottle (Mallaskukko, Turku)
Cloudy wheaty yellow. Characteristic blanche aroma - wheat, citrus, coriander. Ditto taste. First taste is delicious, but the lack of details makes it become bland over time. Was much better a few decades back, I’m sure.
Rerate: Bottle. 2010 - took off 1 taste and 2 overall, as it was bland right from the start.

Overall still one of the best whitebeers I’ve tasted so far, though it’s quite an average taste. Very nice smell and good color for a white.

A: The pour is an extremely pale yellow color with an intense haze to it. The head is medium in size and white in color. S: Big time coriander aroma to this beer. The wheat and other malts provide a moderate amount of sweetness to the nose, and there is a minimal citrus note. T: Again, a heavy hand on the spice component. Lots of coriander and wheat with a distinct lemony tartness. Where am I, BJ’s? M: The body is quite light and the carbonation is quite high and lively. D: Another one of those really well known beers that everybody sort of has to try somewhere along the way. I haven’t had this beer for a long time, but I did not find it did much for me on this occasion.

It pretty much look like lemonade. Hazy yellow with white head. smells a bit spicy but easy drinkable. Of course has a lot of wheat! Live carbonation and easy alrround finish. (Great for starters/beginners)!

3.3
MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2007
Draught at KØ07. Pale milky yellow colour. Chalky white head. The flavour is not overpowering, but nice and very refreshing. Coriander and citrus.
