buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2007
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.

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.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Pours light golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of orange peel, sweet citrus and yeast. Taste is lightly sweet and citric. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not bad, but by no means amazing.

Guerde (1168) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2007
(bottle, thanks Brewfiend) Pours light gold with a white head. Aroma is very spicy with coriander dominating, and smells very peppery as well. The aroma was quite similar to CynicAle. The flavor was disappointing with some spice and a yeasty finish, and the beer was also rather watery.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2007
light wheat nose on this pale yellow beer faint white head. Watery body. Light spice on the nose but pretty much dominant wheat.

SHANER4 (480) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2007
12oz bottle - Poured a golden color with small head that quickly faded to nothing. Aroma is hard to distinguish. Had a spicy orange flavor with a mild wheat after taste. An ok summer beer but nothing to impressive.

[Bottle, thanks Brewfiend] Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is coriander with a little bit of grain too. Taste is quite sweet. Dry finish. Fairly thin mouthfeel.

ChainGangGuy (4376) - Marietta, 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.
