This American based Belgian style beer rivals it's counterparts in Europe. Enhance the taste with an orange slice! This is one of the best summer beers available; refreshing, feisty and sexy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I didnít realized this was a macro brew. A good wit-beer with a very slight citrus aroma and sweet flavour.

Cloudy and golden in colour with a good white head. Slightly damp clothing smell with a hint of orange. Leaves quite a dry mouth but nice and wheaty.

Jabah (139) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
A little more carbonated than the typical Belgian White ale, but overall tasty. Light orange/pale yellow golden appearance with decent head. Hazy from the yeast, as I believe itís unfiltered. Good for a nice hot day, or if looking for a lighter dinner beer with some flavor....which consists of mainly orange, and some other spices. Sweet aftertaste with a slightly yeasty finish.

skortila (4712) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2015
Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has loads of coriander, some orange. Cloudy, yellow - white coloured beer with an off white head. The taste is light sweet, has coriander, grain and citrus. Refreshing but could be more if it wasnt for the coriander load.

I drunk this one first in 2012 in Mallory square Key West FLA, on a pier at the sunset. Again in Serbia 0,355 bottle purchased and consumed in Pozarevac. Pours hazy orange, white gassy foam with decent retention. Nose: pleasant spicy notes, tangerine, sweet wit feel. Mouth: a bit too thin for me but come on, it is meant for sessions. Frizzy end, a bit soapy, not much of that tangerine in the nose but decent wit if you have no other choice.

Is a refreshing beer. The flavour of the species is nice but it goes away considerably fast. Is a beer that I could drink more than once, but if Iíll look for a really good beer to enjoy I wouldnít look for this one.

Someone left a bottle of this at my house. Pours cloudy dark golden color with off white head. Aromas of wheat, oranges, yeast, and some spices. Inoffensive yet muted witbier flavors. Medium body with average carbonation. I can see why many "non-beer drinkers" like this.
