A slightly opaque golden body with a fast fading head. Aroma had hints of mild citrus, mostly lemon. A nice hint of toasted malts and some mild spices. Flavor was similar although not much flavors from the spice. Some mild bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink.

Refrigerated 12 oz. aluminum can, canned June 24, 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Slightly hazy with very small white head. Aroma is nice orange aroma, medium body, medium/light carbonation, and little small bubble lacing. Taste is orange and some coriander. Easy to drink, pretty good flavor, not a bad wit.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean blonde pour with a soft feel to it and one finger of white head. Nose is fruity and eatery with some banana notes and a bready quality. Definitely estery in the flavor, banana big time. Little to no hop character to be found. Mostly round, banana, bready, with some hay.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on June 28, 2013. Crisp sweet/spicy aroma, quite cloudy yellow/orange color, very small white head, heavier body than usual for this style, citrus/spicy flavor compromised by unpleasant bitterness and astringency. A shame the taste didn’t live up to the aroma’s promise.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from a monthly beer club. Pours a real cloudy yellowish, easily identifiable as a witbier by appearance alone. The aroma is very citrusy with definitely orange and hints at lemon. There’s a bit of woody hoppiness as well. The flavor is a bit stickier than I like from the style. It makes the sweet fruity notes seem like hard candy. There’s token grainy flavor and a semi-spiced finish.

Bottle - from Ale in the Mail. Light golden - very cloudy. Mostly clean aroma with a hint of cheese. Pretty bland wheat flavor with a bit of spice. Disappointing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 5/6/10. A new offering from Boone Brewing Co. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a very thick cloudy gold with a small white head capping it off. Left no lace or webbing. Scents of pineapple, hay, spices, and a little yeast.
The body is crisp at the onset but creamy smooth on the finish. Carbonation level is moderate. This is a bready, doughy beer for sure. Rather than a tart spicy fruitiness as the main player, the wheat really mellows this out and is king. Finish is mild. Bitterness is low. There’s a bit of an acidic orange juice-like flavor noted, but it is fleeting.
This is a good beer. Might not be the best representation of the style, but it was refreshing as all get out. I could down several of these on a hot summer afternoon if I had to. Recommend.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Paula. Pours hazy orange tinged gold with a transient white head. It smells rather orange. With something like a musty spice character. Flavor is rather orange - but coriander seems there. It’s rather soft and pleasant in the mouth. Finishes rather bland. Still, it seems more drinkable in quantity than many a wit. Would go well at the beach.
