Not a huge fan of the lighter styles, but as Wit beers go this is top shelf. Very yellowish-white and hazy. Spicy nose with lots of coriander. Refreshing carbonation with a citrus spice flavor. Goes down way too easy for $9.99/six pack!!

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2003 OLD RATING: Top beer, delivering the concept of wheat beer to the masses. Great taste and easier to drink than most wheat beers. RE-RATE: Pale cloudy appearance with a decent head. Weak orange and malt nose. A reasonable white beer but no where near the standard of the finest examples of this type of beer. Has become quite a trendy beer relying on word of mouth to sell. What is this I hear, interbrew os about to start a TV advertisments for it, surely not!?

This Belgian White tastes a little bit like a wine cooler to me. You can definitely smell and taste the wonderful orange flavor this beer has to offer, but Id rather stick to my German Wheats.

Very nice and thirst quenchingbut Im yet to find the full corriander & orange complexities others speak of. Will give it a few more tries. Maybe I just prefer German Hefes.

Had it on draft (with a free glass to boot!). Was served very cold, but could still taste the spicy citrus notes. no head. was really nice in the summer heat.

A bottle of this after work was my introduction to Belgian White. This brew pours a hazy pale gold with a healthy helping of tiny body particles. The average sized white fizzy head doesnt stay around long before it becomes a thin strip of bubbles floating on top of the brew. Lacing is virtually non-existent. The heavy earthy nose is mostly of malt and suggests cereal and caramel, with hints of flowers, perfume, citrus, and date. The flavor though not overwhelming is balanced with moderate levels of sweetness and acidity with a hint of bitterness. The finish is quick, and the body is light to medium with a creamy soft texture and an astringent feel to the finish. Not very exciting, but good nonetheless.

On tap at chessy-ass mass-marketed brewpub #2, this time in Sarasota. Nice and light and fluffy, the finest touches of spice, good Its been a long day type of beer. Mellow. A great introduction to Belgian Wit...but certainly not overly challenging.
