BMan1113VR (7897) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to daveA330. Pours with a hazy white-yellow hued body with a white head that slowly fades. Aromas of lemongrass, pepper, pine, windex, tropical fruit, perfume, florals, esters and orange blossom. Flavors of vanilla, a bready malt profile, floral, rose water, orange. Very flowery. Medium bubbles, somewhat creamy mouthfeel, finishes decently dry. A tasty and somewhat different wit.

motelpogo (7173) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 4, 2014
on tap at the local taphouse in sydney. pale golden with a light haze and slim white head; curious aroma of citrus and passionfruit; not much sign of spice but a pleasant menthol finish. an unusual but tasty wit

mkel07 (3998) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2012
On tap at The Scratch. Light amber to pastel yellow in colour with a strong steady head of white foam. Aromas of lemon, spice and fruit which filled the nose. The flavour, like the aroma, is quite fruity and there is a bit of zestiness and spice going on. This is a great beer for a hot summer’s afternoon.

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle from Mane Liquor. This is an odd one. Definitely works but not quite sure it’s a beer for me. It comes across like a banana milkshake. Very banana driven with some coriander focus and candied sugar. Gets a little cloying after a while. Not bad

hawthorne00 (2705) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2011
Growler, this year’s version is 7.5%ABV. Cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of banana, vanilla, coriander, lemony herbs (presumably lemon myrtle). Taste is quite sweet with _lots_ of coriander and a lemon myrtle pepperiness in a drying finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Spices linger for ages. A little lemony sourness would have made it even better. Very dangerous beer on a warm evening.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle at the beermentv Hair of the Dog Breakfast at Beer DeLuxe. A little sweet for my liking, though I am very picky when it comes to Witbiers. Not a beer to be drunk with others I think.

Davros (2197) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours hazy gold with a large head. Nose shows heavy coriander and a fair bit of citrus peel too. Underneath is doughy wheat. Almost floral. Very similar flavours, more of the same except with a bit of booze and an assertive bitterness. Too much carbonation, but that’s a small fault.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 On tap at GABS St Kilda and also at Biero. Very nice beer. Aromas of vanilla, dairy, and citrus. Taste is sweet, with only a hint of sourness, and light bitterness. Palate is creamy, and medium bodied. Pale yellow, cloudy, with a frothy head.

Sweet malt hop aroma. Murky yellow colour great head and lacing. Sweet refreashing fruit flavour. Fizzy palate.
