citrus, bread, hazy, medium sweetness, full body, long finish, Maybe itís just me, but for my taste itís a great beer with a very pleasant orange aroma. Easy drinking and great quality (at least for me)

TET (1542) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
A dark yellow beer with a medium and blond head. The nose has wheat, spices, coriander, some lemon and sweetness. Taste has spices, wheat, some sweetness but would be better without that, hint of lemon and orange peel. Almost medium bodied, medium carbonation. Not so refreshning as the most of witbiers, also some spices would be nice. Anyway, no faults there.

CPH2200 (264) - DENMARK - JUL 4, 2014
Draft served with orange slice. Probably a hoegaarden wit copy but a decent one. A hint of honey and a thick mouthfeel. Not bad for a US witbier.

Pours a hazy golden color. No head really. Aroma is lemon, some mild banana and cloves and sugary sweetness with honey. Taste is some light Belgian yeast with that almost adjunct lager finish. Shame because it isnít bad on the front. Spices are in there too. Overall, this could have been a better beer. I guess if this can get people into craft beer then that would be nice. I suppose in that regard, this beer has its place.

WillemsUrenkel (410) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2014
On draft in a restaurant, served with an orange slice. Unclear pale orange in the glass. No head. Yeasty on the nose. Starts yeasty, wheat and a little bit dusty. Citrus in the background. Refreshing but very thin aftertaste.

jrodooo5 (910) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Not a terrible beer by any means. Pours murky gold w/ no head or lacing. The taste & aroma is pretty subtle w/out a whole lot going on. Itís easy to drink & good on this 95 degree day but thereís nothing special going on here!

This was in a bottle aboard the Carnvial Liberty. It pours a hazy yellow. It has orange with other hops and citrus in the aroma. The taste was okay, with hints of orange and other citrus.

Marcius (190) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Appearance with golden / amber color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Smooth citrus aroma, with wheat and oats. Citric flavor with honey and oats and little bitterness. A good witbier, I really liked it!

Moebbels (269) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a hazy light yellow body with almos no head to speak of. Nose has aromas of citrus fruits, spicy black pepper, yeast and hay. Taste is mild with smooth peppery flavors and a mildly dry, smooth finish. Carbonation is fairly lively and the mouthfeel is smooth and silky. Overall a decent drink although a little bland.

Bottle to a pint glass. Orange brown pour with some off white head and lacing. Nice aroma of malt spice and orange peel. Surprisingly good flavor a good summer brew.
