   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
EithCubes (4701) - 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 I’ve had from this brewer.

presario (4580) - 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.

dwyerpg (4436) - 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.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 16, 2005
12 oz bottle from Woodmans in Beloit, WI. Golden body, slightly hazy, little head...light lemon-sour nose with little spice or malt evident...sour fairly full body, touch citrusy, no yeasty character apparent...bland watery finish.

badgerben (4385) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
JK (4349) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Yellow. Strong aroma of citrus. Dominant flavor is orange and there is a lot of it. Also coriander. Sweet, light, and refreshing. Different from any other wit I have had. Good.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
ChainGangGuy (4347) - 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.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
nuplastikk (4268) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2008
12oz bottle. Cloudy yellow-tan color. Minimal aroma, minimal taste. This is a pretty poor example of a Wit. Crisp mouthfeel, but very weak watery body with a sub par grain backbone. Straightforward and non-offensive at best, a disappointment.

2.3
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 7/20
hotstuff (4058) - 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.

2.8
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
reebtogi (4038) - 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.
