Good Witbier! A cloudy yellow. A little yeasty and citrus-like. A touch of lemon meringue pie. Unibroues Blanche De Chambly is very similar. I like it a little more than Hoegaarden. It has more character. Check it out.

It has got in its aroma and flavour hints of orange and grapefruit. The beer is almost clear with a slight haze, and a good sized head. For my first wheat beer it was OK but I was expecting something more special than what I got.

The most standard and available wheat beer, but by no means the best. Slightly lacking in flavour. Not bad though.

Nice head and a crisp palate. Good summer beer and widely available. But many better alternatives exist if you can get them.

While I suspect my palate is unrefined, I simply couldnt get much beyond a simple wit here. Try as I might, I cant taste more than a tiny hint of spice/orange. Otherwise good.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2008 Re-rate: Very cloudy, pale gold colour with a frothy white head. Lots of lemon and coriander aroma. Dry and refreshing palate, but somewhat empty. Flavour is a slight bitterness surrounded by a dull touch of citrus (mostly lemon) and spiciness (coriander, maybe clove).

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2008 I really wanted to like this beer as I had heard so many people rave about it. However, I wont be so ignorant to say its crap, but it sure tastes like it. I suffered through two bottles poured into a glass. The head was awesome and the beer looked great, but I couldnt stomach the taste. I actually liked the Blue Moon Belgian White better. Re:rate - I must have gotten a bad batch a few years back, this beer is not that bad. In fact, its rather tasty and refreshing. I dont love Witbiers but this is one of the better ones.

On tap at the Beer Sellar in Nashville. Great golden color with white head. Floral aroma. Citrus flavor with some clove. Not my favorite, but ok. Fairly palatable. Like most Belgians, deserves a second try.
