Bottle at Carrboro Beverage, Thanks Israel. Hazy straw yellow with small white head. Nose is heavy coriander, oregano, light orange peel. Similar, flavor dominated by the coriander and oregano.

Butters (3684) - 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 I’m having a wit.

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2012
On hand at Wynkoop’s United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Slightly cloudy straw/gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma was pretty different for a wit, loads of coriander and a tone not unlike pepperoni meat on the nose. Taste is smooth and balanced with some citrus and wheaty coriander, some peppery spiciness, and a balancing light bitterness.

obguthr (3437) - Lynchburg, 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. I’m 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.

Heavily spiced coriander nose with light citrus. Light to moderate sweetness, very lightly bitter, some honey, light cotton candy, fruity yeast. Decent.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle at taproom. Pours golden with a thin white head. Nice orange peel and grains of paradise on the nose. Lots of perfume from the grains on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid!

hayduke (3159) - 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.

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.

Pours light gold with a slight head. Not a lot of smell to this one, but has a nice slight citrusy taste to it.

Release #10 bottle from the brewery. 5.1% alc/vol. Wow, that’s a good and oddly powerful witbier. Tons of wheat, citrus and yeast. This is not a bland interpretation of the style. Tasty.
