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.

Beer is more or less ok. It’s not a typical and proper witbier, but still it’s quite drinkable and even refreshing.

Teran (100) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAR 31, 2015
Cloudy pale amber colour, almost fluorescent, Nice white belgian type top, good on nose. Superb aroma, even better in aftertaste than european pattern. Orange and noble herbs, floral almost and some light coriander and cake. Something interesting and original is in this beer, very fruity. Great Belgian light body type beer, but with good american touch. Very well balanced, but I repeat: indescribably wonderful taste! Made in Molson Brewery in Montreal, Canada, with UK title North American Craft Beer.

sinte (384) - Udine, ITALY - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle 0.335L. Hazy yellow body with large, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with some lacing; high density of medium-sized bubbles. Heavy hoppy (citrus, orange) and light-to-moderate malty (grains) aroma with notes of spices (coriander). Moderate sweet flavour with an overall watery feeling. Light-to-medium body with watery texture; lively carbonation.

kjc51478 (440) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2015
12 oz bottle. Appearance is hazy, golden color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is weak with orange, some spice, and alcohol. Taste is similar with mild tart bitterness flavored with some orange and light spicyness. Palate is light-bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a semi-dry finish. About what you’d expect from a mass imitation Witbier.

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

McSherman (226) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2015
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.

VeinAle (100) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2015
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.
