This bottled brew poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and yellow orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of wheat. Its mouth feel is initially tingly soft and dry. Its flavor contained wheat notes.

Bottle. Small white head, fair lacing, carbonated, Malty, sweet, citrusy, banana, orange, and some spicy notes. Flavor was sweet, tart, spicy, malty, and somewhat dry. Smooth and somewhat dry mouthfeel. Very drinkable IMO. Worth a try!

Props to TAR for this one!!!! Short lived white head w/ a ghostly light golden body. Big time coriander nose w/ some wheat malt and peppery yeast. hints of orange citrus. Very appealing! Well balanced, spicy coriander & orangy citrus up front, but finishes a little dry & bitter in the aftertaste. Cream of wheat flavored malt in between. No tartness or crispness in a true Belg. Wit. Medium carb., dryer m/f, lighter body but not watery. Not a bad Wit, but not a classic either. Very quaffable & has lots of flavor, but missing a few key elements to be a true classic.

Pours a cloudy hazy golden with thin white head. A touch of wheat, citrus and coriander in the aroma, but with the strange presence of chicken broth. Starts full (for a witbier at least) and semi-sweet with a touch of dry orange peel. Finishes crisp and semi-dry. Thanks atpayne.

Thanks to “atpayne” for sending me this brew. I think that the blond chick on the bottle is kind of cute.
Pours a hazy blond body and a massive ivory head. The aroma and flavor bring some floral citric notes of orange peels, lemon and grapefruit. There are big spicy black pepper, musty clove and coriander… even some pinesap. Some earthy flavors and aromas of Cyprus mulch, and compost. I really dig this beer. It’s not over done in any one area and everything seems to bend nicely. Big yeasty body and fat doughy bread notes. Dig It?

Clear golden body with a huge, fluffy white head. Sweet, slighlty spicy aroma. Banana and orange, coriander, vanilla, grains of paradise, coconut, peaches and a touch of lightly tart wheat husk. The body is moderate and refreshing. The flavors are great and have a nice balance with elegant fruity sweetness at the start moving to spice in the middle and finishing with a mild tart kick. The finish is lasting and refreshing as heck. I’m really liking this style right now, at least in the heat of the summer.

Enjoyable. A bit cloudy and yellow with some white around the edges with a large foamy head. It has the aroma of a typical belgian wit, it’s yeasty and spiced. The flavor is crisp, biting, and citrusy. There is a full wheat malt flavor and feel and several spices are noticable. Barley Island continues to impress me with their beers.

Honey golden. Tall and thick white foam collar sticks to the glass. Very bright aroma loaded with chamomile, mandarin orange, coconut oil, rose petals, and pulverized coriander. Some phenolic esters and wet straw, as well. Soft, very fluffy carbonation paired with a slick body. Gorgeous interplay between buttery chamomile and leathery yeast flavors. Swaths of sweet honeyed malts and, almost nutty, malt husks slice their way through the bold yeastiness. Coriander overexerts itself, lending more sweetness to the rich honeyed malt elements and masking much of the leafy hops aspects, rather than highlighting them. Tongue-coating oaty smoothness adds more body. Deliciously juicy, throughout, due to the fresh mandarin orange flavors. Finishes minimally spicy yet resoundingly floral and sweetly malty with a smattering of buttery chamomile and honey underneath. Phenolic belches complement the lingering honey flavors and lessen the sweetness, somewhat. Quite the fanciful witbier.
