While the body is a tad thin this is an almost perfect beer. I like how crisp and refreshing it is with not bite to it. I really taste the undertone of orange and coriander as advertised. This is almost as good as Cellis White and Hoegarrden. A terrfic beer for a humid muggy day

I love this beer. It is perfect on a summer day or in the winter when it cold and you need a warmup. I love the wheat flavor and its not too filling either!

Not bad for a summer beer. Tame by most standards. Pretty light with a crisp finish.

Pours a pale yellow with white head.Strong banana and clove aroma.That heavy banana and clove translates though in its flavor as well.Nice clove finish.

Amber/golden and hazy bodied under a small & creamy white head. Aromas were sourly-fruited & a tad milky with clove, cinnamon, banana and a touch of pepper. (Medicinally yeasty notes, if that makes any sense.) Flavor was sweet and sour whilst holding the dry essence of its wheat character along with banana, clove and band-aid. Slightly chalky finish. A pleasantly surprising Berghoff... one that I may actually purchase, as I feel its price and availability in my area will be accommodating.

Pretty good. Awfully clear for a Witbier, with some citrusy aroma and flavor. More like a rendition of a Wit than an actual Wit, but a good choice for a hot day.

Wow! This is some translucent stuff. Super light golden. Very thin head. Almost clear. Aroma is mild malt, citrus, and spice. Flavor is wheat, bananna, light spice. This is actually really good tasting and very refreshing and crisp.

Typical light wheaty Belgian. Supposedly it is a new batch, and I drank it at Baumgartner’s in Monroe, so I know it was fresh. Enjoyable.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 Moderate head, golden color-appearance was more that of a pils than a wit, with a mild but fresh aroma of wheat, banana and cilantro. Tingly mouthfeel with delicate orange-lemon flavors and a hint of sweet malt. Short finish. This one seems to have strayed a bit from the corral stylewise, but still it was an exceptionally clean and well proportioned brew. Retaste 2005-lighter in color and much closer to style this year, appeared unfiltered and with a good dollop of yeast in the bottom. Seemed spicier in the coriander dept. and all in all was a pretty good Wit.

12oz bottle. No best by or bottled on dates, but I just got it from the liquor store. Served at 45.5° in my NB worthy glass. Pours hazy gold with orange highlights and a smallish, off-white head. Nose is hops?, oranges, and spice. The taste is citrusy at first with a yeasty, spicy corriander, orange peel mid-taste, and a spicy corriander and mildly bitter finish. This is a pretty good wit representation with the added bonus of some mild hops aroma, flavor, and bitterness. Per the website, the hops used are Tettnang and Galena.
