COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A scrumptious beer that will beguile even the most tentative of micro drinkers. Flaked red wheat, flaked oats, acidulated malt and pilsen malt combine to create its traditional white gold color. Coriander and sweet orange peel give it a little Belgian wang and an extremely refreshing palate.

Bomber. Malty aroma with a lot of coriander and some citrus. Pours pale straw color with a decent white head and some lacing. Belgian malt flavor with a hint of banana finishes dry with a strong coriander flavors and some citrus flavors. Good, but the coriander almost overpowers the other flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at brewpub. Pours yellow and cloudy with a thin white head garnished with some sort of fruit slice which I removed from the glass and hurled as though it were a boomerang through the bar area. Sadly the slice did not return to me. Lots of orange peel and coriander on the nose which bursts and insists itself on the taste buds. Finishes clean but when I belch I’m reminded of Florida. Nice!

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy yellow with white head, lacing well. Aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, hints of grain, vanilla, slight fruit notes, some pear and peach. Taste is milky yeast, some fruit, lemon, touch of grass, earth, some vanilla, biscuit, bread, finishing fairly sweet, slightly thick.

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Pale straw color with a white head. Extremely heavy on the coriander aromas. A bit of sweet apple, some orange peel, and lots of bread and wheat. Strong lemon zest aroma and tartness. Intense coriander flavor with a bit of a lemon zest tartness. Some bread, wheat, and straw notes. Just a light orange peel flavor. Kind of watery, too.

Sampled on 9/29/2012. This witbier pours a very light straw gold color from a 220z bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, yeast, and spices. A light to medium bodied wit. The malts are wheaty and sweet. The hops are herbal and spicy. Touch of lemon and some additional orange citrus. Some coriander and pepper as well. Nice flavors. Nice carbonation. A touch grassy. Very easy drinking wit. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Beaver (1264) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 12, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a smallish white head that quickly goes to a thin film and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet wheaty malts, lemon and perfumey spices.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malts with some citric lemon and musty yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, an OK wit.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle @ home. Bottle named Bristol Wit. Same abv as this release, so it appears it is a re-release. Cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. A bit spicy, somewhat citrusy, wheat malty aroma. Quite easy drinking, sweet wheat malty, a little peppery spicy, somewhat orange citrusy, light coriander, delicious flavor. Really a nice, easy drinking witbier. Tasted next to Funkwerks White 2012 and Epic Wit and this was the best.

drjay44 (2565) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draft at a local. Pours a thin short lived off white head, over a cloudy yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is light apple, pear, light banana/bubblegum....taste is light banana/bubblegum, slight citrus, minimal spice (nutmeg, clove) towards the end...mouth feel light, carbonation high. This is a lightly aromatic and flavored Wit. It is pleasant enough, but does not really have the aromas and flavors more often found in this light style. BJCP 6/3/11/4/6

Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
This wit had a light straw color with a nice head. The aroma was infused with oranges and coriander. The flavor had a nice citrus bouquet of oranges and spices. Overall, this was a very nice wit, and I would have it again

notalush (4752) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Tap at the brewery - I quite liked this one - a nice, crisp tartness - medium dry, with a lemony tang - quite a bit of soft herbal character and some wildflower/lavender notes - suitably light, with a relatively clean finish (just lingering wheat) - refreshing and tasty.
