Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is of orange and lemon. Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a white head that dies to almost nothing within the first minute. Almost no lacing. Good carbonation. Flavor reminds me of Hoegaarden but a little less orange and a little more lemon. Very fizzy mouthfeel. Almost no aftertaste but what is there is very slightly bitter.

A litte weak as I like to drink one big bottle, like the pic to the left. The Flavor is great, better then commercial beer. I’ll drink anytime. skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 30, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Scents of hay and lemon filling dominate, as this pours a misty straw yellow, with moderate carbonation. Flavor is of sourdough (moderate)and citrus (mild). The mouthfeel is dry and fizzy on the tongue, and flavor evaporates quickly on the tongue, like a cristal weissbier. Very nice and drinkable witbier, but not exceptional. PhillyBeer2112 (2850) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2004
Lively aroma, with plenty of citrus (orange zest, lemon) and delicate clearly minty wheat, and a hint of spice. Flavor is well presented with a light wheat presence. The citrus and spice of the yeast is muted on the palate though, leaving a refreshing if somewhat less complex version of a witbier. The finish features a modicum of hop bittering. Cloudy yellow, extra large whipped meringue of a head.

On tap at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario. Pours a pale yellow body that is somewhat cloudy. Nice medium sized frothy white head accompanies. Aroma is cirtusy (mostly orange) with some floral notes to it. Smells like it is going to be refreshing. Initial taste is orange, but gives way to more of a light lemony taste, followed by some spicy notes. Nice! Goes down without a hint of alcohol. Unibrous seems to make all of their beers taste almost non-alcoholic. Good stuff.

Pours golden with a large white head and lots of carbonation. Flavor is low for a Unibroue ale. Lots of yeast. badgerben (5177) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2008 Original Rating April 22, 2004: Pours a golden color, slightly hazy, large head. Aroma is slightly fruity. Taste has some mild wheat flavor, more fruit, and a little citrus. Hints of yeast as well. Not too bad, but nothing terribly special either. 6/3/6/3/12 Re-rating June 26, 2008: Hazy yellow color with a large head. The aroma and taste are about the same: plenty of wheat, orange, coriander and yeast. Very quintessential witbier. DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2004
Pale golden color, hazy, fairly large white head with much lacing. Aroma is peppery, vanilla, spice. Way too much carbonation here, at times thought I was drinking soda or seltzer water, which says something about the lack of flavor here. Maybe there is flavor, but the carbonation masks it well. At times there are hints of spice, vegetable matter, wheat, yeast, banana, all those typical witbier flavors, but overall too thin, sometimes with an artificial sweetness. A rare Unibroue (excuse me, sleeeeeman) let down. irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 20, 2004
pours an extremely pale, hazy yellow, with unibroue's typical energetic CO2. aroma is a good combo of yeast spiciness and coriander. the beer is very light-bodied, with a dry finish with just a little toast, and a mild citric twang. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Slightly turbid yellow color. Aromas or citrus, coriander, yeast, and slight bananas. Tastes very fruity, with citrus and slight dry yeastiness at the finish.
