Very dark amber/orange. No head. Smell the hops. Citrus & spice. Nice and bitter but maybe a little too much for a summer ale. Wouldn't necesarily count this as a Belgian White but quite tasty. Also a little too much carbonation

Pours out with a large, exploding head to a cloudy, dark, golden color in the glass. Aroma is that of clove. Taste is a typical, but tasty wheat with clove, light citrus and a slight, spicy twang present. Nicely done. A good summer beer from a very good (and not appreciated enough) Michigan brewery.

Bit 'o the alcohol. Dark color. Subtle wheat flavors. A bit o' the pepper. Good.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2003
A cloudy honey color with a medium creamy, non-lasting beige head. Spicey aroma, unusual in a wheat since it is not cloves, more like Allspice and pepper. A peppery taste that finishes dry. A tasty wheat that I think you hav to be in the mood for.

Nice spicy aroma from it's cloudy depths. Lemony pepper first sip. Wheatie and clean, with some light spices jumping forth at the dry finish. Yum!

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Pours fairly dark for a witbier (light amber) with a white head. Spicy aroma gives way to wheat, coriander, cloves, and lemon-pepper flavors. The body is semi-sour with a bitter aftertaste. A different interpretation of a witbier, lurking close to being an American wheat.

Lemon and wheat on the nose, but also skunk, alas! Let's hope its just the nose. Lovely cloudy medium amber, largeish frosty head. Mmmm luckily the flavor isn't skunked, this is quite good. Creamy and refreshing at first, but peppery and spicy at the end. Shame about the nose; maybe it's just me in this case?
