Draft. A pleasant pour, but by no means an exceptional pour. A strange, brown - yellow color. Not orange..LOL This beer actually looks like Metamucil and I could not get over that! I am not trying to be derogatory here. A light body, lively carbonation.A cloudy body with some particulate matter.

Pint on tap at The Bridge Inn near Salisbury. Pours hazy yellow with a small bright white head. Aroma is coriander, orange peels, soap. Taste is citrus, grain, wheat. An average wit.

On tap. Pours a cloudy golden sediment filled with white head and no lacing. Smells of citrus. Taste is light and refreshing citrus. Little bitterness and light aftertaste makes this a decent hot weather, quench your thirst beer.

Art (2999) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Hard to believe I haven’t rated this yet. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a pale head. Aromas of orange, light banana, sweet yeast. Taste is sweet but bland for the style. Higher carbonation.

The appearance is that of a belgian wit, maybe a bit more orange that the classic yellow of a Hoegaarden to name one, but aroma and taste are much weaker. Nice refreshing beer, but nothing else.

dlihcsnatas (587) - Texas, USA - JUN 7, 2016
Hazy gold with big head that fades down fairly fast. Smell is wheat and coriander but the taste is mostly grains with just a mild hint at the spices. Decent and easy drinking brew but not something I will go out of my way to get.

jice (263) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 7, 2016
Ingrédients et nez d’une bière blanche, mais c’est une bière ambrée qu’on retrouve dans le verre. Aspect mis à part, la bière est agréable, mais on est loin d’un blanche

Bottle to cup. Wheat and orange blossom aroma. Cloudy burnt orange, no head. Grapefruit pith, weak orange, tap water, bitter wheat finish. An easy drinking beer yet underwhelming in flavor.

leghorn99 (205) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 4, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di colore oro opaco, con torbidità data dai lieviti in sospensione; la schiuma è piuttosto modesta, bianca e di breve durata. All’aroma in evidenza sentori agrumati, con note di lievito, alcuni esteri fruttati che portano alla memoria il melone; ma carattere di basso livello. In bocca un primo impatto di grano, seguito da sapori agrumati. Il corpo risulta molto leggero, con alta carbonazione ed una freschezza che si avvicina a quella di una Lager. Il sapore di malto è mite, con una dolcezza moderata; leggera acidità a metà bevuta, finale secco con una leggera astringenza.

Une blanche à la robe ambrée, au nez fruité et épicé et à la bouche ronde et fruitée qui évoque plus une wheat ale qu’une wit bier.
