2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer clearly has its fans -- just take a look at some of the reviews here -- but I don't get it. Pours a dark golden yellow which isn't unappealing by itself, but doesn't seem to suit the style (which is presumably a Belgian Wit, which is presumably lighter.) The head vanishes very quickly. Nose of cooked grain, a little citrus, a little corn/fritos, maybe a touch of spice but that's stretching it -- really not much more than say a Yuengling with some lemon juice in it.
Mouthfeel is odd, rather thick and gummy to my taste. Not much by way of flavor, does have a sharp finish that isn't unpleasant but I can't taste much of anything in the beer itself, certainly nothing I'd normally associate with a Belgian White.
Best described as a Belgian Wit made by a company that never actually tried one -- just read a little bit about them in other books. Like if the Cold War was going on and Romania tried to brew one, based soley on reputation and what they could discover in libraries. It's kiinndda in the style, but it's a really bad stab at it.

Not really my style of beer. Herbal flavour of nettled cat wee. Little hop. Too sweet and then bitter finish that is too tanin.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ein Witbier aus den USA. Im Glas etwas dunkler als die bekannten belgischen Vertreter: leuchtend orange, trüb mit weißem Schaum. In der Nase dominiert die Orange, die sich dann auch geschmacklich durchsetzt ohne aufdringlich zu werden. Hinzu kommt etwas Koriander. Ein leicht schmeckendes erfrischendes Bier, welches ohne übertriebene Süße auskommt.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of the most widely circulated wits out there. Pours cloudy yellow. The orange and coriander dominate to nearly the point of excess. I can’t drink many of these and wouldn’t order them.

Cerveja wit que representa muito bem o estilo. Adocicada com leves toques de canela, baunilha, e mais intenso de laranja.

I picked this up as a last resort on my way home. The aroma is not very distinguished. It is a sweeter beer. Which must be why others call it a refreshing beer. I do like that it has a full herb taste from the white wheat and various other oats.

12 oz bottle. Poured into a shaker pint. Hazy orange with modest creamy white head. Light smells of corriander and orange zest. Tastes the same but not as strong as real witbier. This is drinkable for corporate swill, but if there are other options pass.

Not a bad beer, but not particularly tasty either. Pretty average in my opinion. Probably good for hot weather.

Good beer at any time. Easy to drink and tasty, especially with an orange in it. Yummy with wings, pizza, and other finger foods

Bottle@Bistro Niko, Atlanta. Blonde beer with a light head. The aroma is citric and dry, and the flavour is dry with some citrusy and yeastiness. Overall a nice witbier style beer.
