reebtogi (5399) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
355ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy pale golden orange color with a finger of white head that settled quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild orange zest with hints of banana and coriander spice. Taste is big malty sweetness with the orange zest and coriander and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body with light carbonation. A little below average for the style.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
OK, I’m No. 2. Any beer that puts "Malt Beverage with natural flavors" scares me. Who are they marketing to? Dark golden color with a dissipating white head. Orange blossoms, cardamom and light vanilla clog the nasal passages. Has a odd flavored alcohol nose. Light malt, melon and orange peel flavors. Very synthetic flavors. We have an american wheat category, perhaps we now will need and american wit category. Egad!

vyvvy (5373) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma has spice, husky malt and light citrus. Medium mouthfeel with somewhat sharp carbonation. Taste is spicy and husky. Finish is sour and grainy with some lemon citrus. Not a bad Wit - I went in expecting the worst considering some of their other offerings and was pleasantly surprised.

beerguy101 (5351) - Newark, California, USA - DEC 10, 2006
This wit pours a light orange gold color from a 120z bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is lightly malty, citrusy (orange and lemons) and a touch grassy. A light to medium bodied wit. Malts are grassy and citrusy. Hops are slightly spicy. Spices are mild; coriander and orange peel predominating. Light and refreshing. Crisp and clean but a little watery. Nice lawnmower beer. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly citrusy.

dwyerpg (5327) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Light in appearnace and aroma. Surprisingly, not very wheaty in taste, and barely reminiscent of any other Belgian wit I’ve had. Really seems like an above-average lager.

heemer77 (5239) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Cloudy, light gold colored body. The aroma is over ripe oranges and some light clove. There is also a hint of banana and perfume. The taste has some light oranges and a tiny bit of corriander spice. A little to much citrus, even for the style. Otherwise, an alright beer.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2004
Light fruit and yeast aroma. Head is gone before you know it. Slight chill haze orange-yellow. Crisp, lightly tart. Watery.

badgerben (4777) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2005
Clear gold color with no head. The aroma and taste are pretty much the same: slight hint of lemon with a bit of pine at the end.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Bottle. Very small white head that quickly dissipated, sparse lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, carbonated, transparent, and a straw yellow hue. Malty and fruity aroma. Flavor was sweet and malty and rather boring and bland. Tingly and somewhat dry mouthfeel. Light body. Unimpressive and not recommended.

ChainGangGuy (4708) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Appearance: Pours a slight hazy, pale yellow body with a thin white head. Smell: Mild aroma of pale malts, coriander, and orange peel. Taste: Thin, sweet wheat flavor with the citrus peel providing some fruitiness. Distant note of coriander. Very, very light bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Refreshing, sure, but not too terribly complex or unique.
