Compared to the other dozen witbiers I've tried this one is my favorite. The price is good, it is unfiltered and has more flavor out of the can than any other of this style. I was compelled to review this one because it was obvious that many of the reviewers obviously did not like this style so they gave it a low rating. Witbiers are not supposed to blow your socks off, they are supposed to be refreshing with a light citrusy, spicy flavor that is easy drinking. This one has a pleasant aromatic aroma of coriander and lemons and tastes perfect with a pronounced coriander and lemon zest aftertaste that makes you want to take another drink. Perfect for the style. and comes in a 16 ounce can.

Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a whiteish color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some hints of citrus. Taste is good, citrus, spice, some wheat, lots of flavor and very easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overallis a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

If Hoegaarden is the "standard" by which other commercial witbiers are judged, then this is quite different. I'm not big on canned beers but found this one to be OK from the can. It has a nice yeasty, wheat beer smell but very mild. I was somewhat surprised at the above average amount of head it produces. Appearance is pale yellow with cloudiness. The taste is mild without the over spicing of others, with a hint of citrus and coriander. The surprising sweetness in the finish I like, not dry as expected. Overall, a nice beer for a hot day but a little expensive for a canned beer in my opinion. I would certainly recommend trying it.

A - Very hazy with just a 1/4 inch of head that settles. Color is a nice yellow.
S - Smells of spicy coriander, orange and lemon peel, with classic wheat.
T - Not as strong yet as spicy as I expected the wheat takes a back seat while the coriander is mild. I like the orange peel aspect its bitter but strong. Tasty.
M - Light as crisp as expected.

Overall after being disappointed by the pilser this beer is quite tasty but still far from the best in style. I would drink it again since it was around 2 bucks for the pounder.

Martens Witte is a spicy, citrussy wheat beer. Usually I like beer with big flavour, but I didn't love this one.

A: Cloudy straw colour and a 5 mm head that lasts pretty well. 4

S: Weak aroma of yeast and some spices. 3.5

T: Nice wheaty base and a very strong flavour of spices. Some citrus tang too that I didn't particularly like. This would be a nice summer beer, though. 3.75

M: Low carbonation. 3.5

O: 3.5

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Hazy, cloudy faded yellow color with sediment floating about. A fluffy white head that recedes to a soapy film. Light lacing.

Aroma: Sweetness, fruity notes, spiciness, mint.

Taste: A very minty beginning, sweet malts, butter, faint earthy fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly dry.

Overall: The minty and spicy touch made this good.
