nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2001
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!?

imdownthepub (14228) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2003
Draught at Vlissinghe, Brugge. Plenty of flavour still from the trendsetting Whitbeer. The corianer, citrus is a little overwhelming for m taste but nevertheless a decent afternoon sampler

A good Belgian white, and it went down well with Thanksgiving dinner.

GreatDane (101) - Skvinge, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2003
Wheaty with a taste of pineapple. Very good witbier, but 1 or 2 does it. Otherwise it gets to boring.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 Billowing white cream; hazy, pale lemon hue. Fried bananas served with vanilla ice cream and cinnamon; oatmeal with stone fruits. Brief malts give to tangy acids; coating wheat lingers into a bright lemon zest finish. Well attenuated yet creamy; drying with fluffy carbonation.

Smooth and safe with tangy acids and intriguing spice.

33 cl bottle, best before 20/07/2009.

Pours very cloudy, pale yellow with an average frothy head. Smells very spicy to the point of exclusion of other smells. So its not much to see or smell. Tastes like yummy-refreshing wheaty-bananas. Very light feeling; watery, with very active carbonation. Finish is short and clean, a little more bitter than the start.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2003
Pale yellow and hazy with white creamy head. Yeasty aroma with citrus and some pepper. Taste is yeasty and sweet with some acidity. Some drieness in the finish. Could have more character but it's still a good summer beer.

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2006 Draft. This consistently underwhelms me. Pale yellow, cloudy body. Usually a good sized head on it, this one was less than average. Slightly more watery than usual, but still a very nice mouthfeel. Aroma is of orange and spice (coriander?) I prefer Blanche de Chambly from Unibroue personally. An excellent macro product for sure though, that I tend to order more often than I realise at lesser bars!

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2004 Pleasant floral aromas on the nose,cloudy pale colour with a nice and full white head, the taste was mild spice,clove,coriander and banana. Not a full bodied beer but a very pleasant one.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2004
This is still something of a classic, although seems to have lost a little character since becoming part of the giant Interbrew empire. Perhaps less spices in the mix? Or it it just psychological. Whatever, it is still a zingy refreshing beer and was to become a great standby in days to come in Belgium when palates were becoming a little jaded with powerful sweeter brews and needed some cleansing (water, of course, being out of the question). Draught, Eurostar Rail Terminal, Waterloo, London, September 2003.

Christian (13341) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2008 Light, cloudy yellow beer with a very white head. Fruity, slightly smoked aroma, some spice, some lemon. Sweet and easy-to-drink with a hint of tartness.
