DrSilverworm (6579) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
22oz bottle, shared with caterwaul. Release #9, 5.1%. Mostly hazy yellow orange color. Little white head. Couple bits of lace. Really zesty orange peel, ginger aroma, very nice. Itís zesty and orange peely in natural way, which I donít mind. Medium body. Crisp, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Lightly chewy. Dry, zesty sweet flavor to this. Lightly tart. OK, slightly above average, more flavorful, assertive, and dry wit. Would like a tid bit more full body with the yeast, though the citrus and spice is satisfying. A witbier worth paying lower-end bomber prices for.

Ernest (6264) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle (Batch 16, 5.5%). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime zest, peppercorn / grains of paradise, sage, ginger, coriander, lavender. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Remarkably good for this brewery, and one of the best wits Iíve had in quite a while (keep in mind I donít like this style, so itís very rare to find one that I would even drink, much less enjoy)...while the adjuncts certainly dominate the nose (especially the citrus and pepper), which is honestly my only gripe, they are very herbal and spicy without coming off too much like scented soap or urinal cake or bubble bath...itís a good blend of spices, just a little too dominant. Seems very clean to me, too...no grainy aftertaste or off notes. Very pleasantly tart and well balanced...neither too sour nor too sweet, nor overly bitter from the spices...a difficult combo to find in this style. Good mouthfeel as well...substantial and fluffy but still very quaffable. Difficult to stop drinking. Iím pretty shocked, but yeah, for me this is damned solid and very close to a 4+ rendition.

nealblind (874) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUL 7, 2013
On tap at seattle brew fest. Straw yellow cloudy some head. Aroma of rosemary sage lemons peaches. Tastes of herbal coriander, spicy yeast. Palate is dry, too dry. Yeasty feel helps a bit, but the herbs are too strong on this one- not my thing.

This 5.9% brew is a bold representation of the Belgian Wit style. The coriandar pops out in the arome followed by a beautiful citrus wheat nose. The flavors assault your tongue in the most wonderfully exciting fashion, finishing dry with a lingering citrus and coriander note.

hayduke (3385) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Batch number 11. Pour was hazy yellow-gold with a big foamy white head. Light lacing. Nose of coriander and orange zest. Medium plus in body. Flavor is coriander, orange, citrus, and peppery. Lively finish. Lots of flavor for the style. Very refreshing.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. I rolled my bottle and plenty of dark sediment mixed making the pour cloudy. It was kind of white gold and sported a nice white head. This had an aroma of wheat, and coriander. The flavor was very nice and it was a generally sweet beer. Pepper grew throughout and oranges were pleasant. Belgian yeast was very light as were the spices in general. This was a perfect beer on a hot summer day after a hot day at work and then golf. But it was a quality offering regardless of what i did today. Nicely done.

madvike (2759) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2013
Another old-ass (June 2012) beer from Huntington Beach Total Wine...shame on me for not checking the batch number first! - Pours lightly hazy gold with a huge creamy off-white head. Nose is fruity and lightly spicy, with cardamom, coriander and lemon in the forefront. Dry malt with mineral notes. Taste drops off considerably from the surprisingly zesty nose. Itís soapy and a bit sharp and astringent, with alcohol notes and bitter citrus peel. The spiciness is there but not overbearing, and the citrus is prominent throughout. The same dry/mineral malt is in the backbone, but itís overpowered by the sharpness. Body is fairly thin with biting carbonation. Seems like this would have been a pretty nice beer that was likely ruined by sitting on a warm shelf for 8-9 months.

Patrickctenchi (3814) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is floral, lemony. Taste is wheat, spice, lemon, coriander. Ok....just a little less than smooth.

EdInSaltLake (658) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Citrus and earthy yeast aroma. Citrus and peppery flavor; some "earthy" yeast flavor--not as prominent as in the aroma. Banana/bubble gum flavor, and some light bready malt.
