Draft. Hazy yellow color, white head, solid lacing. Aroma of lightli spiced lemon and banana. The coriander comes out much more in the taste, a bit too heavy. Moderate bubble gum notes. Not bad.

På fat. Doftar citron, koriander och toner av mynta. Med tanke på att citronen i smaken är mer åt dismedelscitron så är det märkligt att det ändå smakar rätt gott. Örtighet fyller på. Något tunn. Lättdrucken.

MadRobin (2070) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 16, 2013
On tap 4 oz. taste at DC Beer Fest at Nationals Park in SE Washington, DC, where it was listed "Brevity Belgian Wit" at 5.1%. (The brewmaster previously worked at Vintage 50, which had a beer under that name.) Hazy, bright golden-orange with a large off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of yeast, cloves, coriander, wheat, sweet malt and light citrus (orange and lemon). Taste of cloves, banana, coriander, yeast, spice, wheat, orange and sweet malt. Light/medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the DC location. Poured a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was notes of yeast, cloves, wheat grains. Flavor was light yeast, spices, some coriander, and a touch of orange zest.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 3, 2009
On tap @ Capitol City downtown. Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, spicy Belgian yeast and very mellow hops. Pretty good balance of sweet, sour and bitter flavors. Light to medium body with average carbonation and a crisp refreshing finish. Pretty standard Wit.

nimbleprop (5212) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Brought a growler of this to a local DC gathering. Translucent, straw yellow with a whispy, cloudy head. Wait, is there something floating in my glass? Aroma is not the best, grassy, yeasty, cloves, bananas and... sweat? Flavor is very nice though, grassy and yeasty, spices, orange. Chalky finish. Nicely balanced and easy session beer.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2009
DC Gathering, growler courtesy of Nimbleprop. Big spiced coriander aroma, a little overly intense. Odd lacy head. Smooth and creamy, with a lemony edge, which I’d guess was orangepeel. Too spiced for me, I wasnt really feeling this one.
