Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange, with a huge rocky white head that is sturdy and lasting, lacing nicely. Aroma is yeasty, apple, peach, slightly spicy, and some grassiness. Flavor is apple, some sourness, lemon zest, tart, acidic, and quite dry. Medium body, fairly bubbly carbonation. bob32256 (171) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2003
light yellow color with a white head; aroma of yeast and hops; sour taste with a bit of lemon - the aftertaste isn't bad, but the initial taste isi too bitter and sour egajdzis (6502) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Poured a cloudy, lemon yellow color with a large firm white head and nice lacing. Aroma of yeast, spice, and even some hops in there as well. Slightly sour lemon taste as well as other citrus flavors. Very smooth, crisp finish. ericnixon (746) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2003
What's up with the lonely monk drinking on the bottle? Looks kinda surley on second look. anyways, there are big chunks on the bottom with tiny fine bubbles, much like a champagne. oh yeah. Huge mouth presence. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2003

Good looking label. Big caramel with light flowers in the nose lead you to believe the taste will be much sweeter than it is. Flavor is light caramel up front with flowery hops coming in and then sourness finishing it off. I love the restraint of the sweetness, but would prefer more of the great hop flavor than the sourness. I know I'm probably supposed to appreciate the latter more, but I don't. Unlike the others I do not think the sourness is very interesting--just sour. theakston (64) - arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Good hop aroma floral with sharp lemon tones. Taste is well balanced sweet and malty with earthy hop bitternes. Yeast aftertaste is quite complex, some sourness some fruit and some moderate funkiness. Quite an impressive beer for the strength. jgb9348 (6199) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Hazy grey colour with a very large dense white head. An odd colour for the beer, but it still looked pretty nice! Smells of witbier: corn, wheat and coriander seed are all evident. Light-bodied; tastes of corn, citrus, wheat and a bit of hops. Palate filled with spices (cloves), yeast and hay. A pretty good white, definately one to try. Overall a better than average beer...I find it a bit wierd to be under the Belgian Ale category, but whatever it is...it's pretty good! I got my 11.2 ounce bottle from Lee & Edwards in Roanoke, Virginia purchased by good friend and fellow ratebeerian JonR888710. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2003
A simple and straight-forward Belgian. Probably no great shakes at home, but better than average beer in the States. Cloudy, citrus and hops, with good carbonation Is this a wheat beer? Cloudy yellow appearance and citrus taste suggests that it is. SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2004 Good stuff. Nice head with a lingering sweet and refreshing flavor. kind of sharp and sour towards the end. Wonderful drink, definately worth checking out.
