Indra (2608) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 17, 2010
22oz. bottle, contract brewed at Weston Brewing Co. Spicy, sweet aroma, full of coriander and citrus, with lighter notes of orange, clove, wheat malt, doughy yeast, honey and faint must. Thoroughly solid medium golden orange in color with a lasting, fine head and sparse lacing. Flavor is likewise citric and spicy, only lightly malty, with a certain tartness detected early and light-moderate bitterness, finishing sharply and fairly clean with a gentle yeast bite. A faint herbal flavor appears late. Thin and lightly acidic on the palate with a low-moderate amount of carbonation and a light body. Nice and refreshing on a warm day such as today.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Pour is a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is a little thin but notes of lemon, light malt, faint spice, and a light chamomile note. Flavor is also a touch thin, but notes of lemon, orange, light spice, and faint yeast are most notable.

sethdude (697) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Pours hazy gold with a thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is very spicy, clove and coriander and a bit of black pepper. Flavor reflects the aroma, only with the addition of mild banana and lemon zest notes. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and there is a slight metallic note 3/4 through.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Bright gold orange colored beer with a large off white head. The nose has lots of lemons and a little bit of clove. There is also a little bit of sweet almonds. The taste is slightly bitter with a little bit of lemon peel. There is also some clove in the finish. Hints of raw dough are a little yeasty, especially in the aftertaste.

adnielsen (9025) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Bottle @ home, picked up in KC. Pours a cloudy, orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Mildly citrusy, mildly spicy, bready wheat malty nose. Fairly tart, mildly spicy, citrusy, wheat malty flavor. Tart, wheat aftertaste. Iím not too impressed.

Scrapersnbeer (1467) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2013
Usual wheat aroma, not getting much spice. Looks orange and not cloudy, much more like a standard blond ale than a wit. Tangy citrus flavor, mild sweet spice. Body is zesty while flush and not dry. Tends more towards what is sometimes called BPA, so not the best example of a wit.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2011
22oz. Bottle: Got in trade from phaleslu; THANKS Peter! Aroma of malt, slight Belgian yeast, light spice, orange, light wheat, and slight coriander. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, off-white/tan head that greatly diminished but lasted around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of wheat, grain, slight Belgian yeast, light spice, and some coriander. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, malt, Belgian yeast, slight spice finish.

5000 (6257) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle:   Straw, hazy, and not pale in color, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Could stand to be lighter/whiter.   Wheaty nose, slightly mealy, not getting much if any in terms of spices.   Smells like a standard American Wheat.   Mealy on the tongue, also a bit wheaty, but void of any tunnel that guides you to something spicy.   Even as a plain ol American Wheat its lacking a bit of fortitude.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Boring finish, a bit mealy and wheaty.   This one was simply void of anything Wit like.   Very very very pedestrian and boring.   Not bad, but lacking for what it should be for the style. <p.
