Good white ale. Overall you taste the citrus and the spice. Good feel and look.

Pours a very cloudy, pale golden orange color with banana yellow edges and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Looks really nice. Sweet citrus aroma with peppery spice, earthy hops and bready yeast. The tropical/citrus presence is much more noticeable in this version with hints of blood orange, grapefruit and mango countered by grassy, floral hop notes as well as some pepper, coriander and bread. Medium bodied with a strong peppery spice and earthy hop presence that lingers over the sweet citrus fruit notes and bready yeast into a slightly tart, dry finish. The citrus presence is stronger here than in the regular version with hints of orange, tangerine and mango, but it’s still overpowered a bit too much by dry, peppery coriander and earthy hops. Subtle bready yeast and a pale malt backbone for balance but just a touch to heavy on the spices and hops for my liking. The high ABV is very well hidden making it decently drinkable but I wish it was just a bit better balanced.

Bottle from Antioch Fine Wine. Was excited to see this as was hoping to find for a long time .... however now I see other ratings are at least a year old. Oops. Lemon, coriander, tangy yeast, sweet malts. Some alcohol. If it is indeed a year plus old, not bad. The alcohol is actually a bit of an additional component with the tang, lemon and sweetness of the malt. Shrug? No way to really rate this properly, I’d say. 13.4

"Usually an imperial of a style known for subtlety is a big red flag for me. Think Sam Adams imperial white, or a couple imperial Berliners I’ve had. This one works though. In part because it’s not just overly sweet. The extra warmth and booziness make it interesting. The usual floral aroma is there along with big orange and spice. The beer is more reminiscent of some boozy Belgian ales, not wits. Even reminds me of White Oak a little. Good beer, way more enjoyable than Clementine."

lesifflebiere (1692) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
Boisson dorée orangée translucide, avec une bonne couche de mousse blanche. La bière semble mi-mince. Au nez, beaucoup de fruits et de sucré ; les clémentines dominent sans surprise, mais on détecte aussi des bananes. En bouche, l’histoire est assez différente : oui le petit fruit orange est là, mais les céréales, et surtout la levure prennent le dessus. Les houblons sont aussi assez actifs, ajoutant un tranchant déjà bien puissant. Elle demeure une bière aux fruits, une bière de soif, mais on lui reconnaît une certaine originalité et une belle prestance.

Golden colored pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing left behind. Spicy, fruity aroma with notes of pepper and roasted grain. Malty taste with a bit of citrus fruit mixed in. Not too bad.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’orange en arrière goût. (Rating #5090)

Big citrus nose and also kind of boozy. Lots of coriander along with orange peel, alcohol burn may hide some of its nuances though

Pours a gorgeous peach colour. Drinks more like a triple than a wit. Aromas of Belgian yeast and citrus very similar flavours. Quite tasty.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Picked up at Hokus Pokus in Gonzales, LA. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of tart clementine notes with some white pepper and wheat. The flavor has a lot of orange and coriander notes as well as some wheat and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle from Premiere, not the freshest thing on the shelf. Decent wit, though I would liked real orange peel, not flavour added. Good drinkability.Smooth mouthfeel.
