COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Combining Canadian and American malts with a large proportion of un-malted white winter wheat, Fiat Lux starts with a Belgian witbier inspiration. A blend of Pacific Northwest hops, a little lime peel and a dash of Indian coriander brings a bright blast of citrusy aromatic sunshine, while German Perle hops supply a nice big zap of refreshing bitterness.

Dogbrick (7567) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Sample at World of Beer. This brew pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of fruity yeast, spices and toasted malt. The finish is fruity with a peppery yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Copper color. Well carbonated. Coriander and some spices, and lots of hops for the style. Belgian yeast and citrus finish.

Draft. Deep black . Nice foam surrounding the glass, some coffee beans and hops in the toasty flavor. Booze is not overly present till it warms up. Pretty good. Excited to taste the differences from the nitro can version ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Dad's: pours clear citron with creamy bright white head. Nose of lemon, wheat, mint, German hops. A reasonable wheat/Saison esque beer that's drinkable. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
On tap at the Common Table - reviewed from notes. The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma has some big coriander notes, as well as some wheat and a bit of orange. The flavor is similar. The wheat and coriander notes come through up front, with only a hint of citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft at Cincy Beerfest. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is wheat, pale malts, citrus, banana lightly spicy with a hint of bubble gum. The flavor is dry wheat grass, banana, spices, yeast and a hint of citrus.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Keg at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a clear gold, finger of rather bubbly head. Irons is pretty complex: spicy Belgian yeast, citrus, lime, coriander, a little perfume. Taste is very nice - sweet orange, bread malt and spicy Belgian yeast. Coriander and hoppy bitterness follow, with a pretty dry finish. Medium-full bodied. I’m not the biggest witbier fan in the world, but this is a nice one.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Draft... Clear light-yellow ale with a huge, pillowy white head. Great retention. The nose provides huge coriander and orange peel plus a hint of pepper. Medium-bodied and moderately creamy with tingly carbonation. Sweet, spicy, herbal flavor. Finishes bittersweet and crammed with seemingly every single spice-rack component that rubs me the wrong way. I hate wits and the Boston Red Sox.
