Bottle. The pour was a pale straw yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that was mostly diminishing, leaving behind a thin film with a small collar thus producing fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt and a moldy Belgian yeast with notes of banana, citrus (lemon), wheat and coriander. The taste was very lightly sweet with a strong wheat presence and a touch of banana from the start and possessed a slight citrus note and a bit of spice towards the end. The flavor was short lived with a mild citrusy wheat finish. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a mellow carbonation. Overall this is a pretty basic Witbier. Tasty, refreshing and very drinkable, which along with the somewhat low ABV makes it the perfect brew for a hot summer’s day...

12 oz can poured, labeled as sunshine in a can. Sold! For some reason. A cloudy, darker yellow pour with a half inch of consistent foam head. Straw and wheat centered aroma. Minimal flavor of wheat, pale with a heavily watered down citrus. Flavor isn't absent, but Not is light, which actually leads this to be pretty refreshing as an overall. No lingering offensive flavors, but no flavors really linger at all. A straight to the point wheat ale, that barely suggests a Belgian style in my opinion. A fun try, definitely.

From Jul 2007 Purchased at Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Colins for US$8.99 a 6 Pack. This pours from 11.2oz can(best by 21-09-08) a very pale straw-yellow with a nice large head of foam that shrinks to a solid layer and it has lots of lacing. The smell has a lemon nose that I noticed as soon as I popped the tab on the can. I also get whiffs of wheat and for the hot weather we've been having in Casper, it's pretty darned inviting. The taste on first sip and I get plenty of lemon zest that smacks me in the face and then there's a yeasty kick and some banana and some spice and I'm starting to enjoy it quite a bit but then(yet again), the flavours seem to drop off. Just before and through the finish, it becomes very bland and watery and and that ruins it for me. Too bad; Initially, I thought I'd really like this Wit.

I remember the first time I tried this beer on a bike ride from Utrecht to Antwerp with Bo in 2007. After a day of biking, arriving in Breda, this light, citrusy wit was pleasant. Its wateriness was wonderful. Have tried it since, often in cans. I nice beer to canoe with.

Good Witbier. Nice yellow-golden opaque color, wheaty and tender citrus flavors blend well. Thumps up.

Typical cloudy yellow, no head. Taste has that lemony taste associated with wheat beer, with some vanilla and coriander. Sweeter than most wheat beers with a really thin watered down palate. Quite nice. Price Paid: £1.99 - 330ml can.

Can from Glug, Newcastle. Hazy, pale straw coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a sweet gentle fruity lemon and vanilla flavour followed by a herbal and fruity finish. Not bad.
