Hazy light yellow colour. Phenolic, slightly spicy (coriander) aroma with hints of fresh mandarin oranges (not that canned crap). Light body. Spritzy, with lots of orange flavour. Slightly tart, with hints of spice.

A true authentic witbier that fooled me into thinking I was drinking an import. Very belgian. Lots of yeast and coriander flavor. Well done.

This is a nice witbeir brew that has a fruity yet malty odor. It pours a yellow with a slight white head. This brew has a rather odd flavor but is not bad to sip on. Over all a decent brew.

Apricot, citrus, Belgian wit aroma, tea. Cloudy apricot amber with small head. Medium body with light carb. OK wit taste, fruity, light spices. Not bad for American take on Belgian wit but a little sweet.

Pretty, cloudy sunshine; moderate head and sustained; citrus oil nose. Very nice mouthfeel. Slight sting in the back of the mouth is nice in sn S&M sorta way. Dry finish. No overbearing citrus notes like the nose might suggest.

12oz bottle Spritzy lemon haze w/lotsa lace. Orangey corriander fruity soft phenols in the nose. Light, tart quencher. Better than a pale lager for gulping after building a campfire and a natural cooler in the St. Vrain, IMO...a bit of malt does show up.

Thick white head and moderate lacing follow a proper pour. Light yeast and some citrus in the aroma -- they hit you in that order on the palate, too. The orange finish gives it some unexpected kick, which is nice. A witbier is not the same as a hefe, at all, and the differences can easily confuse the palate, but for a white, this is a full, spicy American take on the original. Good for Avery!

bottle the pour looks like a cloudy coors. i’m not sure if thats a good thing. expected hefe, banana aroma. taste is disappointing. not very balanced. wheaty spoiled fruit taste. better than some but damn this could have been better. finish is not much to speak of watered down version of the first tatse to hit my tongue. avery has better beers and there are better hefes out there.
