Appearance: Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with nice white head and some lace.
Aroma: Spicy aroma with some belgian yeast aroma. Scents of orange and banana
Taste: Spice flavors with some citrus hops.
Overall: This is a nice beer. I am not a fan of wheat beers, but this is well balanced and not overpowering with wheat aroma/flavors.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemon colored pour with 2 finger white head. Aroma = bit citrusy, Im guessing its the grains of paradise im smelling that is giving this a sort of straw aroma, its different, but it smells good, It almost has a weak saison aroma about it. Taste = get a slight does of what you would expect, a bit of lemon, touch of orange, but the grains of paradise really comes through, and gives this wit a more mellow smoothed out flavor. mouthfeel is medium.
Overall this is a really great wit, probably the best i have had. Even though I would have expected an anniversary wit to be bigger all over, its still a great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours brackish water with gold hue and white head. The aroma is sweet with sugary malts and then wobbling slowly into wheat with a touch of citrus, spice and yeast. The taste begins grainy with a back drop of coriander spice and a bit of yeastiness. It heads to the finish with the addition of wheat notes mingling with the rest of the flavor profile.
