Looked great in the large weizen glass, hazy yellow with a large sticky head. Aroma is very pleasing, coriander, orange peel, and some spicy yeasty notes as well. Starts with citric sweetness, bitter and sweet orange peel, coriander, then turns lightly wheaty and spicy in the finish. Very nice beer, definitely quaffable.

Has a hazy yellow color with a lot of carbonation and a spice/orange smell. Taste is of the spice/orange and finishes slightly dry. Overall another great beer and my favorite from this brewery so far.

A very nice beer with an appearance typical of witbiers. This was my first one on draft at the pub and the malty-orange-wheat base was somewhat rich for a basic witbier (not quite like a tripel, but better than a wit). Finished with a nice spicey (coriander?) hoppiness. Would enjoy trying this one again.

Nice fruit and cream aroma. Only very slightly hazy. Lots of pear and vanilla over yer basic wit framework. Not much curacao. Substantial mouthfeel. Fades fast and doesn't cling.

Tap at the source - Lightly hazed gold, creamy white head. Nose held soft notes of orarnge zest and corriander, with underlying notes of banana and yeast as it hit room temp. Very well balanced flavors of citrus and spice that tangle with light yeasty notes late. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, spiced finish. Well done summer thirst quencher...

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Pours gold with a white head. Hazy, but closer to a hefeweizen in aroma with lemons more prevelant than the coriander and banana notes usually associated with this type of beer. Tastes citrussy with some floral and peppery elements working their way in. Very drinkable.

On tap @ City Steam. Pours hazy straw yellow with a small, white head. Nose is candied citrus, orange peel, very slight spice. Very syrupy sweet. Flavor is similar: sugar explosion: sugary sweetness in citrus, orange peel, and banana. Not much spice in the flavor, but cloyingly sweet. Soft carbonation and a medium body combine in this nice summer beer. I like sweetness, but this was almost too much for me.

3oz sample. By far the "highlight" of my sampler platter. Why this is on tap in the dead of winter, I do not know...Citrus orange coriander nose that is expected with a touch of mustiness. TRANSPARENT blonde with a small white head. Needs some cloudiness and and carbo, baby. Sweet, gumbally banana and candy flavors dominate throughout. This is very tasty. It’s too bad it looks like crap.
