Weak, in my opinion. I love the style and I love this brewery, but this has to be the worst Weyerbacher I have had so far. The first one was painful to drink. The second was a little bit easier, but not the hoegaarden experience that I was looking for. The color is light lager yellow. Not too hazy for its type. Flavor is borderline tasteless and the palate is slightly harsh. I do like the bottle’s pic tho. Overall, I’d expect better from them. DYCSoccer17 (3703) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 19, 2004
Sour orange/lemon citrus notes with peppery spices in the nose. Authentic to style. Moderatelyt hazy pale straw color with tiny quickly dissipating white head. Malty, creamy, and boring. A little zing at the end, other than that not much different than a lager. Dissapointing. Does not live up to the aroma. ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - JUL 19, 2004
pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small head. Aroma of orange, yeast, pineapple and peaches. Explosion of flavor to start, mostly citrus and yeast. the middle mellows and is kinda grassy. the finish is clean with a hint of spiciness. This is a nice beer.

Bottle: Cloudy pale straw yellow body with a white head that quickly fades. Aroma: wheat, lemon, straw, banana, spice(orange, yeast). Flavor: First is slightly sour & yeasty, followed by lemon, vanilla, corriander, lots of wheat, and finishes slightly tart. I’ve had better Witbiers.

(Bottle) Pour a quick-dissipating, white head and a fizzy, clouded lemony body. Nose of straw, corn, wheat and lemons. Flavours of mild vanilla, lemons and wheat. Uneventful... I expect more from this brewery.

Thin, white head that does not last long. Light carbonation. Color is a light gold. Spicey straw aroma with a bit of wheat and roastyness. Flavor is spicy with a dry mouthfeel. More wheat and spices. Finish is slightly dry with a bit of bitterness. A decent witbier. aracauna (3616) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Very pale yellow and cloudy body is topped by a smallish, chunky white head. The aroma has a nice bit of floral orange above the slightest hint of banana. Not a lot of clove involved in this thing. The wheat is surprisingly big in the flavor, giving off the essence of the tought crust of a hunk of french bread. Esters support the bready malt with tartness just teasing around the corner. Very light and easy-drinking and very refreshing. A very good summer beer. dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Bottled: Poured a cloudy, pale yellow with a moderate white head that faded into odd looking patches of sea foam. (At this point I begin to think something isnt right) Aroma of citrus and not a whole hell of a lot else. First sip, taste of lemons, mouthfeel is quite watery, aftertaste is uggh, nasty. What the hell is wrong with this? Waited and took a second sip, lemony, watery, nasty aftertaste. Pooor representation of the style from an otherwise good brewery. Needs more spice and a cure for that unpleasant aftertaste. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle. This is a verly bad witbier, in fact i wouldn’t call it a witbier. Extremely pale yellow, not cloudy at all. There was no flavour aside from lemon, and slight hints of wheat and coriander. No depth of flavour, not such a good effort from these guys. FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 One of my least favorite Weyerbacher beers. +++12 oz brown bottle. Very nice picture on the bottle - a shallow thing to notice, but I like the effort. I had looked forward to trying this beer for some time. The description on their website promised some liquid glory. It poured a very cloudy pale yellow. There was a small white head that quickly faded as did my hopes. But the aroma brought me back with strong notes of citrus, black pepper and spice. Then came the flavor. Tart. Sour. Dry to the point of crying out where is the sweetness, any sweetness?! There was a hint of lemon that grew as the beer warmed up, but even this could not save the brew. There was even a vaguely skunky nature to the aftertaste. As it warmed a dry spicy flavor began to creep in, but sadly is was a bad spicy flavor that only heightened my disappointment.
