Bottled. A very cloudy orange beer with a persistent foam. Flowery and lemony aroma. A touch of hop in the flavour. Light body. I don’t like very much this kind of beer but Panil can do better than this. HogTownHarry (7012) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Via trade with Boutip. Hazy pale gold with a huge fizzy/foamy white head. Pleasant light dry champagne-like sweet and yeasty aroma, with apple, banana and sweet grassy hops - a touch of citrus as it opens up. The taste is mostly watery citrus with some pineapple and banana, incredibly watery. Still, thin mouthfeel, a little sweet but no linger or finish at all, although some herbal hops kick in and leave your palate wondering "WTF" and then disappear again - quite disappointing on the tongue. hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle. Not bad but not extraordinary beer. Hazy golden colror with a thin white head. yeast, wheat aroma. taste of wheat and coriander and citrus.
Bière ce couleur doré trouble avec un mince collet blanc. Odeur de levure et de blé. Goût de blé, corriandre et agrumes. Bonne bière sans être exceptionnel, j’ai apprécié. CapFlu (5128) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
(Bottle) Shared at the PNW Christmas 2006 party at Oakes on December 9th. Huge white exploding head with a cloudy ocre body. Nice wheaty lemon nose. Flavour is very fresh and somewhat lemon peel. I really liked this one! BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2006
Golden body with an ultra lemon citrus nose. Slighty sour in flavour and not maly enough. Some yeast on the finish.

Huge golden color. One dimensional lemon dental flouride nose. Lemon, estry mouth. Bad estry finish. JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2006
Slightly hazy yellow-orange; small head. Coriander, rubber/sulphur (too outspoken), citrus. Citric taste, with perfumey lemon and orange flavours, and, of course, coriander. Medium bodied, refreshing qualities. Not too bad, citrussy is the good sign, even perfumed. If just that nose hadn’t... Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Straw colored with a white head and spotty lacing. Rather spicy nose; coriander or peper. Yeasty and a wet wheaty smell. Flavor is a bit sour with citrus and bread notes. Finishes out with citrus and yeast. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006
Quite white in colour. Floral, estery nose with a bit of wheatiness. Light fruity hop accent. Wheaty body. Quite phenolic. Not bad, but nothing special. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 Very cloudy blonde body with lots of particles and some chunks. The medium size dirty white head quickly fades away to a thin layer. The aroma was cloves, coriander and apricots and reminds very much me of the Blanche des Honnelles aroma that I’m drinking a lot these days. Very yeasty beer with all the flavours of the aroma with the addition of some lemony notes and hairy apricots skin. The yeast and malt combines for a muffin/bread type of mouthfeel and flavour. Sure does not feel light or watery despite being only 4.6%. Rather tasty, not the refreshing type of witbier. Unfortunately if I’m looking for that spectrum of flavour I’ll stick to the better, cheaper and easier to find Blanche des Honnelles. Italy imitating Belgium? Mussolini would say, if you cannot conquer them join them.
