Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Herbal lemon aroma, watery body and bland taste. I can hardly believe this could be a Wit - if it is, itís been seriously dumbed down for mass consumption. I hope I remember to stay away from it in the future. At least the label is a little different from the other Berghoff brews to help me remember it!

bottle - Pours clear yellow with a thin head and smells of oranges. The light, sweet flavor has a fair amount of citrus. Itís a little too watery, even for what is typically a light style. Overall itís alright but quite unimpressive.

drpimento (2151) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2007
Poured with a light head and a little lace. Color is a hazy yellow gold. Aroma is a spicy weizen. A bit more spice and citrus in the flavor, but countered by being somewhat thin. So so finish. You could do worse but also a helluva lot better. Had this on draft at Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wis.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2007
I found this beer to be a not-bad-yet-fairly-unimpressive wit bier with a bit of a bad odor and a lot of lemon&coriander flavor. This beer pours a pale cloudy yellow with virtually no head. It is Bud Light colored, but cloudy. Aroma is a bit corny and a bit unpleasant. Flavor is lemon and coriander with some wheat flavor at the finish. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Not bad, but not a favorite. I think there have been many other better wit introductions recently (Hoegaarden, Leinieís Sunset Wheat, etc).

PhillyBeer2112 (2514) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2007
I smell lemon-lime first and foremost. An herbal hop, a touch of coriander, and doughy yeast/malts. Lightly hazed, golden, thin head. More lemon-lime flavor, tart, short. Hint of lemon rind finish. Very wheaty.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Bottle: Hazy, straw color with orange tint. Lots of white head. Lots of carbonation. Citrus and banana aroma. Very boring so far... Lots of banana, citrus in flavor that ends up just being too crisp, tart, and sour for my tastes. Spicy hops donít quite compensate... For the amount of flavor, there is almost no finish, just a small amount of lingering citrus snap. Too much of the same old flavors do not make up for a lack of quality...

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 2, 2007
12 oz bottle. Clear yellow gold color. A wit needs to be a little hazy in my estimation to be attractive. I like blue eyes better than brown and when it comes to wits, I like hazy better than clear. Just a preference. The head dissipated quick snap and didnít leave any lace. If I were a driving instructor that would be two red check marks out of two. Lets move on to aroma. Where to begin...letís see...it smells nothing like a wit. I detected whiffs of grape candy, apple, and light malty caramel. Itís remarkably similar to the Berghoff hefeweizen I tried side by side with it. No citrus zest, no coriander. Flavor wassimilar and equally disappointing. Mouth feel was thin and watery. the red check marks are really adding up.

DJC (238) - USA - DEC 13, 2006
Hazy, light orange color, with a quickly-disappearing head. Extremely mild aroma; what I was able to capture, though, smelled somewhat like Graham crackers. Light, wheat and orange flavors. Iím not a big fan of this style, but I did find it to be rather refreshing.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle: Pours a hazy yellow blond color, thick white head with stick lacing. Nose of very light orange and coriander, some really pale malts and needs some wheat. A bit too much like mandarin extract with the coriander notes. The flavor isnít bad, a bit lacking in body. I like the sticky starches from some wheat to be sticking to my lips. Finishes average. Surprising for Huber.

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.
