An interesting wit. Orange is in the nose. But there is also a strange baby aspiring smell as well. The appearance was a touch dark for a wit. More like a heffe. The taste is very good though. Mouthfeel is very lively. Overall, I like it more than most wits. The orange notes sweeten the taste a little and give it a tiny bit of fruityiness that makes the beer distinctive.

Cloudy, lemon color, moderate lace. Citrusy, yeasty, quite definite nose. Medium body, moderate flavor, smooth texture, low heat and carbonation, almost flat mouthfeel, good balance, avg length. Moderately bitter, touch of sweetness, low acidity. Complex flavor, yeasty, citrusy, Quite nice example of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (2499) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2015
This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving a glazing of lace roaming around the glass. The smell had a nice sweet sticky orange and blended citrus rind. A light spice around the coriander helps to balance. The taste took the orange and citrus to combine with the spice to develop a nice refreshing lead into the aftertaste and leave a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent crisp sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but seemed to smooth out a light citrus rind bitterness over my tongue delicately. Overall, this one was good. It’s a nice take on a witbier to have a nice orange flavor in it.

Draft at South Beach Bar and Grille. Pours hazy orange with a fizzy white head. Tastes like musky orange, some wheat, and a little watery. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like light orange, light wheat.

jonas (5996) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2015
Tap at irreale. Light hazy golden, white lace. Low clayish aromatics, lightbodied, minuscule straw malt body, lacking volume, fruit and spice of the style. Disappointing

Theydon_Bois (11420) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
Keg at the taproom on the island, 13/11/14. Hazed golden orange with a moderate off white covering. Nose is orange squash, light spice, lemon peel, floral effect. Taste comprises straw, light orange, yeast esters, hint of bread, lemon rind, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok-ish for style but pretty so so overall.

GranvilleTim (1759) - Granville, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Golden yellow pour with an off-white head. Aroma is earthy hops and malt. Taste is slight citrus, earthy hops, mellow wheat body. Refreshing. Easy to drink. Citrus on the tongue, but not bitter.

martinrumsam (562) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle bright hazy orange. Very thin white head. Some orangey aroma. Sweet taste with some orange coming through. Lightly spiced not as much as a true Belgian wit beer. Crisp palate. Refreshing.

tmoreau (2765) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a hazed, orangey gold hue, with a modest layer of soft white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was light yeast, soft wheat, subtle spice, and subdued orange & pith. Light bodied, the taste offered a touch of sweetness, low hop bitterness, and finished a bit watery, but was elevated some by decent carbonation. Pleasant, but unassuming.
