COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This untamed, unfiltered, unbridled mix of wheat, oat and barley malts has made its way home. Now, with its blend of Curacao orange peel, coriander and Belgian yeast, this legendary Belgian White is ready to bite again with bone-chilling refreshment.

Meh. American attempts at this style always fall short and this is no different. Aroma was decent. Lots of big witbier spices. Orange peel and coriander were big and full. Pour was way too dark gold for this style. Taste was a mess. The spices and orange peel were overpowering and the light malt way too sweet. This beer tastes like it was 7% ABV. Mild carbonation.

HighlanderOne (1063) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt and spice. Looks like blue moon. Tasting all kinds of spice here (coriander, pepper, nutmeg). Floral notes. Sweet malt base complements. Lemon and other citrus notes. Well done.

JDBaker11058 (1518) - Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Appearance: surprisingly dark gold out of the bottle, little yeast sediment, short white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: strong aroma of coriander, with some citrus and spice. Taste: toasted coriander seed very prominent, general belgian yeasty spice, light citrus, then a big toasty cracker finish. Finish: ended just slightly sour. Notes: Bottle at Full On. Seemed rather unbalanced, and not as zesty or refreshing as I like my witbiers to be. Average.

EithCubes (5216) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Nose is coriander soup with heavy orange peel, more spice, touch of wheat (and perhaps faint vanilla/chalk?). Pours hazy yellow-orange with a short white head. Taste again mainly coriander but seems backed off somewhat, more wheat and orange light malt. Silky smooth medium body, a little oily, juicy. Very low bitterness, moderately dry overall. Fresh, clean, refreshing.

weihenweizen (2157) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen. Pour slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is grainy, medium/light body, medium/lower carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is grainy, coriander, and some orange peel. Not a better wit.

Citrus aroma and flavor is evident. Very lively carbonation with a thick white head. Very crisp and refreshing. Though it is s winter seasonal, I would actually drink this all summer if available.

TheHopster (910) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2014
(Bottle). Slightly hazy golden complexion with thin white head. Aroma of clove and wheat. The flavor is a summery balance of wheat, Belgian spices, lemon and some malt backbone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

keepersj12 (2923) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2014
Pours a cloudy light amber with a big head. An earthy aroma with a hint of Belgian spice. The flavor has a nice sweetness to it with a bit of corn and some sugar. The finish is a bit sweet but very refreshing. A very good lawn mower beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
