radagast83 (5657) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2012
22oz bottle. Poured a hazy straw yellow color with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma was a bit repulsive for me at first - I donít know, something seemed a bit off about it - donít know if it was the yeast character or the grains but meh. Yeah. Surprisingly I enjoyed the flavor a lot more. This was okay - if the aroma was better Iíd probably have enjoyed it a lot more.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle (release #6). Pours with a hazed, light golden hued body with a large fluffy white head (looks like the moon). Good retention and lace. Strong spice and phenolic nose with notes of pepper, coriander, sage and lavender. Some floral almost honey like notes, grains of paradise, medium malt character: crackery, wheat. Quite spicy. Flavors show a touch of salinity, bready, grainy wheat, floral, sage, coriander, lavender. Low pepper. Strong phenols overall. Very soft mineral character. Very low bitterness. Fuller carbonation, dry, medium to low bodied. Easy to drink.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Hazy yellow with small amount of whitish head. Very floral aroma and coriander. Flavor is very heavy on the spiciness which I think comes from the grains of paradise. Somewhat bitter orange pith twinge on the finish. Very effervescent. Reminds me of a a bier de garde more than a traditional wit. Pretty good and refreshing, but not exactly what I want when Iím having a wit.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Pours light gold with a slight head. Not a lot of smell to this one, but has a nice slight citrusy taste to it.

adnielsen (10070) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Bottle @ home, tasted next to Funkwerks White 2012 and Bristol Wit. Cloudy yellow appearance with a white head. Quite spicy (yeasty and herbal), coriander, orange citrusy aroma. Rich bready and cracker malty, wheat malty, pepper/coriander spicy, fairly quenching/easy drinking flavor. Pretty good one but I preferred Bristol Wit.

Gription79 (2612) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 1, 2012
22 ounce bottle. The aroma and flavor are overloaded with coriander. Malt notes are mild. A thin body with mild carbonation. Not much going on with this beer.

obguthr (4589) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Surprisingly floral bouquet of lillies, rosehips, clover honey, and the obligatory coriander. Clear yellow, headless. Drinks like it smells, somewhat perfumey but the hops and spices compliment each other quite well. Iím told that "white IPAs" may be the new trend as several high profile breweries have one under development. This beer certainly be considered one. Avant garde.

Drake (10507) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2011
22 ounce release #4 bottle from Total Wine, Norfolk, VA. Rated 7/20/11. Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a medium sized creamy head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of tart citrus and big spice notes. The taste is pretty similar along with some apple and grape notes. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Bottle at BCTC Saturday night over at Chrisís amazing truck. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Lemony and crisp, wheat. Crisp lemon and lemongrass notes. Sweet wheat and citrus on the finish. Nice and clean.
