fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Draught at Elysian Brewing Company on Pike St.
Muddy yellow color. Mild aroma of sage and rosemary, some ginger. Smooth mouthfeel; there is some wheat flavor and a dynamic adjunct from some citrus fruit, with lemongrass feeling.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Draft at the brewpub in Seattle. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a 1.5 finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of lace left behind.     Very dark for the style.  Looks like a berlinerweisse. Like most of their beers, there’s a strong yeast presence with lots of bread in the nose along with spicy coriander, pepper and lemon zest.  Herbal with lemongrass standing out and subtle banana character from the yeast. Smells prey complex. Fuller bodied than expected with a complex flavor profile. Slightly tart with a nice balance of bready yeast, banana, sweet citrus and zesty spice.  Lots of ginger, coriander and clove up front followed by bread and banana with a strong citrus presence mid palate that lingers into a slightly dry, tart finish. Complex, well balanced and refreshing.  Really good.

theisti (3905) - Kansas, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Shaker pint draft at the brewpub (Qwest field location). Pour is very hazed and unfiltered, cheddar cheese orange with not much of a white head. Aroma is orange citrus, coriander and wheat. Taste is wheat, orange citrus, Saaz hops, earthiness and minerals. The finish has some orange peel sour bitterness. Taste, like the pour is very much unfiltered. Nice satisfying palate without being heavy. Nice refreshing wit.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2008
On draught at the Elysian brewery in Seattle, Washington. Pours a hazy golden straw brew with a thick and lumpy white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of light multi-grain and some golden grain malt, some banana esters, cloves and a touch of orange zest. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of light malt with wheat, coriander, orange zest, a touch of banana and cloves. Finish is creamy and smooth with a nice coriander and wheat aftertaste flavor. Quite a decent Witbier.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2008
Cloudy golden with fluffy white head. Citrus, light lemon grass and spice aroma. Taste has more of the same but considerable bready malts nad a kick of ginger. All of the additions come together nicely, but the malt still does most of the work. Great example of a light session beer(4.76%) that packs plenty of taste. Could cut down on the bitterness, actually.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On tap at Elysian Fields in Seattle--Poured a soapy white-straw body with a small white head. Phenolic nose with a mildly sweet banana and clove essence. Tantalizing tannin creaminess with a zestful and floral follow through. Awesome!
