Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Flanaganís Liquors in Appleton, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin white ring. Aroma of light bready malt, a touch of banana, oranges and some dry yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, well carbonated with flavors of multi-grain malt, some orange zest and earthy spices. Finish is slightly sweet with a light orange zest aftertaste that quickly disappears.

EithCubes (5461) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2007
Bottle. Aroma is a bit grainy and has an overdone amount of coriander. Sickly pale yellow body with a short white head. Crisp and lemony taste, smooth and yeasty with a grainy, biscuity aftertaste. A good deal of malt and a creamy, medium body. One-dimensional but still enjoyable - the surviving favorable wit character does win out over the stale Berghoff mainstays. Easily the best of the eight brands Iíve had from this brewer.

JPDIPSO (5450) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
OK, Iím 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!

dwyerpg (5433) - 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 Iíve had. Really seems like an above-average lager.

beerguy101 (5354) - 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.

heemer77 (5283) - 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.

hotstuff (4811) - 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.

badgerben (4809) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4721) - 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.
