5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Coppery golden, large fizzy white head, very little lacing.   This seems a little off color and too dark to be a Witbier.   Dull floral nose, very faint spices, otherwise grass, straw, and hay.   Slightly barnish.   Mealy on the tongue, I suppose wheaty, but the spices just aren’t there.   If they are, its very faint.   More in common with an American Wheat than a Belgian one.   Because of the wheatiness it has a decent body and mouthfeel.   Dull on the exit, finish is boring.   Just plain ol wheaty... Color and spices are all off target.   Call it something else, cuz this is no Belgian Witbier.

Nice spice smell on this one. Possibly a little too dark for a wit. The taste is spot on. Light with many different notes.

Muted European characteristics, bastard of light beers. Decent enough, light and crisp.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2008
On tap at GVB--Ultra pale straw body with a tiny wispy white top. Nutty, clove-banana nose. Candy and bubblegum flavor that finished smooth, creamy, and sharp. Yum!

On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Green-yellow. Grape peach aroma with a light oak-clove flavour. Minor hop presence, thin and fizzy.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 15, 2006
A light and refreshing wit from GV. Cloudy golden and hazy, with a small white head, served way too cold and in a pint glass of all things. Sharp dijon, mustard seed bite, with some tangy spicy hops and a rich and smooth malt character, with your ever present, yeasty clove flavor to round it out. Very crisp in the finish.

[Tap – Blooms & Brews, Silverton Oregon]
(Oregon Craft Brewfest at The Oregon Garden) Golden blonde color. Nice head. Aroma was fruity and sweet, little banana and clove. A good easy drinking Belgian this was a very nice beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Nitro: Blonde hazy yellow, lots of thick white head, average lacing. The aroma is citrusy with wheat & yeast. The flavor is well balanced with a little tang & a good dose of hops, finishes mellow, refreshing, and not bad.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2004
On tap at the Sasquatch brew fest in Eugene, OR. Pours a pale yellow color, with a cloudy look that realy made this beer stand apart. Aroma was wheaty with a finish almost like grass or straw. Very clean and refreshing taste, fairly thin, but great for a hot day brew.
