COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wonderful wheat is slightly sweet and spicy from the coriander and candied orange peels that are part of this traditional Belgium recipe. Simply delicious served with a slice of lemon.

Bottle... Poured vibrant, cloudy, pale yellow with a big, white head. NO LEMON! Nose had some strong yeast esters, berries, and earthy grass tones. Lots of carbonation, wheat malts, crackers, berries, yeast esters. Some spice, coriander and citrus. A nice drying finish that was quite quenching.

hayduke (3377) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 20, 2011
This was courtesy of Strykzone.The 22-oz bottle first was a gusher, and after a cup poured out on to the tablecloth it poured a cloudy orange to gold with a very large white head and light lacing. Nose of orange peel. Body light and mouthfeel lively. The flavor is of citrus and some coriander spice. There are better witbiers around, but this one was certainty drinkable.

It poured an orange color with a off-white head. The aroma was wheat, fruit and some coriander. The flavor was coriander, and the aromas above. It was an ok beer.

dmac (4016) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2011
I really liked this one. Thinner pour with a clear gold body and a bubbly smalle white head. Aroma of orange citrus, spicey, grassy wheat, yeast and juice. Flavor of honey, orange, slight earth, vanilla and dry grains. Solid but judging how off my rating is I may possibly have had to much.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2011
22oz bottle from birchstick. Pours very hazy, bright yellow with a fizzy white head that evaporates immediately and leaves no lacing to speak of. The aroma is heavy on the coriander and orange peel, really heavy, with very little of the underlying wheat beer that I could tell. Maybe a touch of sweetness in the back but the coriander really stands out. The taste is much sweeter than the aroma with the wheat and orange peel sitting heavily on the palate up front. The spices hit in the finish and leave a dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lower carbonation than I was expecting. A little watery in the finish. This is probably just an average witbier and not one that I would revisit.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 13, 2011
02-Dec-09 (22-oz bottle: Purchased 08-Sep-09 for $3.99 at www.wineandcheeseplace.com) This is a fairly lemony and tart witbier, rather heavy on the citrus peel and coriander compared to the light wheat base. Orange peel, dried apricot and coriander are prominent in the nose, with some light wheat aroma lagging in the background. For this style, the weight shouldn’t be too heavy, so the refreshing, light-bodied entry is reasonably on-target, but the beer finishes very watery. It’s quite dry on the palate, but also light-medium in carbonation and on the acidic side too, though the increased acidity helps to offset the lighter than expected carbonation. Hazy yellow body with a quarter-inch of fizzy, white head that fully dissipates within a minute. Overall, it’s simple and direct, not one of the better examples of the style and not all that enjoyable to drink.
