A - Cloudy pale yellow with a small head and flecks of lacing.

S - Faint lemon, light wheat. Not much else.

T - Coriander, some faint citrus presence. Absurdly watery. Aftertaste has a touch of detectable malt flavor, but it is as bland as the foretaste.

M - High carbonation, watery, thin, actually kind of bland and not too refreshing.

D - I certainly won't bother with this one again, almost no flavor. It is bland at best.

From my notes 6/5/2007 pours two-finger white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Light cloudy amber color. Sour citric nose. Light carbonation and light bodied. Flavor is sourish wheat, not what I was expecting. 330ml bottle for €2.50 ($3.43) from Manneken Pis souvenir shop Brussels, Belgium.

Perhaps I just got a bad or old case, but this was a no go for me.

It's a very drinkable beer, but not spectacular overall in my opinion. The bright yellow color is offputting when served in a clear glass, it looks better when served in a frosted glass. The smell and taste are pretty neutral, no great flavor, no bad flavor. It's just kind of a bland beer to me, not bad but not good.

Pours out a hazy lemonade with lots of bubbles rising to the top which maintain the foamy head. There is lots of lacing going everywhere. Smells really sweet and fruity with a hint of Evangeline Maid white bread, which is kind of nauseating. Citrus stands out more than coriander. Tastes candy sweet and reminds me of cotton candy in the flavor (or, better yet, cotton candy flavored Bubble Yum). Coriander comes out a bit more than in the aroma, but the citrus is ever present. Really, there isn't much more I get from this, and, seriously, that cotton candy bubble gum flavor is out of control. Too much of that white bread thing is making me gaggy. Mouthfeel is almost too smooth. Really watery here. There is no way I'd buy this again.

Comes in a brown 33cl bottle with an elongated neck and a white and red label featuring a naked cherub peeing. No kidding. Ingredients include sugar, coriander and curacao. Best before 9/1/04, I opened it on 2/16/04.

Pours a cloudy very pale yellow under a surprisingly short-lived one finger white head that was little more than fizz. The nose is yeasty, and fairly subdued. The mouth is painfully carbonated and lightly sweet. Tastes a lot like watered down tonic water. There's a touch of malt and a hint of yeast in the taste somewhere, but this is mainly soda. I detected no hops. The aftertaste is yeasty. Yup, quite a bit of yeast. Sure, lots of yeast. Not much other than yeast. My wife, the wheat beer fan, tried it and said "you're kidding." Maybe it was a joke...
