Cream, small white head atop a murky golden body. Aroma is medium sweet, coriander, some orange, clove. Taste is mild sweet, coriander, wheat. Crisp, light-medium body with light acidity.

Not much to look at - looks like Budweiser in the glass. Luckily it tastes a bit better. Not great, but not in a class with Bud either. Slightly fruity in both aroma and flavor.

Bottle pours a very cloudy pale yellow, medium sized fizzly white head, fairly attractive lacing, with lively carbonation.   Aroma is full of corriander and curacao.   Wheaty on the tongue, slightly dry at first, with subtle spices that linger for quite a while.   Not as sweet as you’d think from the aroma, but still quite nice.   Good body, full (wheaty) mouthfeel.   This would be a great summer refresher, one that I’d like to enjoy more often!   Thanks goes out to heemer77 for the trade!

First off I would like to say that I am a houge fan of wheat beer and I like this beer, been drinking it in the US, but I must say it’s not my favourite.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Murky orange gold color with moderate head and zippy carbonation, some sediment. Lovely aroma-smelled of wheat, orange and enough grapefruit to remind me of an APA. Light bodied, brisk mouthfeel, with flavors of lemon, pear, orange and an underlying bitterness that tasted hoppy in the finish. I didn’t think it tasted "Belgian" at all but it was quite good anyway, even though showing some signs of aging. Would love to sample this fresh on tap, and I've been meaning to get up that way.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Golden appearance with a little white head. The smell was a combination of flowers and candy. Fruity taste but, the aftertaste was a bit strange. I didn’t kill the beer for me but, it was weird.

aracauna (3604) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Pours with a bit of excessive carbonation, making it hard to get the entire bottle into the glass. After the head has time to settle, it ends up a rounded white cloud of foam over a cloudy yellow-tan body. The aroma is strong on a floral orange smell with the coriander providing just enough support. The orange turns fleshy in the flavor followed by a slightly grassy bit of hops. Excellent witbier and quite refreshing. One of the better wits I’ve had.

4.2
igel (196) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2004
Pours a light amber color with a slight haze. The head is large and rocky and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity (bubblegum and citrus) and spicy with an earthy background. Mouthfeel is light; crisp, and effervescent with a light hop finish. Flavor is light and sweet with fruit overtones and a well paced light hop finish. Damn good. A pleasant surprise.

3.1
JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Cloudy dark golden color with a smallish off white head. Manderin orange, fresh bread and yeast aromas. Lightly syrupy feel. Orange zest flavors overwhelm the flavor components. Dry spice is bitter and distracting. While drinkable does not have the finesse of a classic wit.
Earlier Rating: 2/18/2003 Total Score: 3.2
Hazy golden color with a white head that quickly dissipates. Light bananas, nutmeg and orange soda aromas; that come together and smell like a freshy painted room. Spicy flavors of cinnamon, white pepper and ornge zest. Don't know the strengh of this but the alcohol does come out in the finish and distract. Heavy, yet enough carbonation to make it feel lighter. I like it, but there are to many distractions to give this a higher rating.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2004
12oz bottle Bottled in July/04 Murky pour w/ yeast shaken in. Nice aroma...banana, orange, spicy corriander musk. Lemon zesty flavor, slightly tart with a dry finish. Not quite the corriander cocktail that some wits are, but i’m still just not into it head over heels. No noticeable off-flavors though. For a wit, I suppose its decent. I’m no lover of the style.
