Gription79 (2830) - 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.

TAR (2677) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Batch 16: Whitened blonde. Tightly-packed frothy white foam exhibits superb retention. Clean and elegant aromas of cardamom, lemongrass, white pepper, sugar cookie/ginger bread. Faint whiff of airy phenols and flowers. Fine and creamy carbonation. Initially well rounded and slippery with grassy wheat and lemongrass accompanying a pronounced saliva-inducing lactic tartness. Subdued, predominantly floral hops take a backseat to the artful spice medley. Despite their intensity, the tastefully incorporated spices never overwhelm and perfectly compensate for what would otherwise seem like a hollow center. As the tartness gives way to the continuously unfolding spicy richness, a phenolic burst cleanses the palate with a stiff dryness. Highly quaffable due to the sparkling clean attenuation and plethora of elegant subtleties. Wheat-derived twang prevails throughout, though a dainty pils malt toastiness breaks the monotony as it scratches at the tongue and beautifully contrasts with the slicker textures. Some starchiness creeps in as well to augment the body. Finishes potently spicy yet dry and clean as a whistle, with a hint of sugar cookie and lemongrass swirled with a flowery hop signature. It’s always difficult to find a witbier that excites. Most breweries attempting this style tend to cover up the uninspired base beer with excessive spices and foul yeastiness. But this has the huge spice component AND the base beer is rich with detail, nuances, and is cleanly attenuated. And at a very reasonable price of $4 a bomber (not a smashing deal by any means, but much fairer than the vast majority of bombers out there these days), I’ll be quaffing this by the boatload. A positively memorable rendition.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow body with a frothy white head. Heavy aroma of clove, coriander, orange peel. Notes of lemon, pepper and citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture turning velvety, lively carbonation. Overly spiced with strong taste of coriander, grains of paradise, lavender, but not so much to taste bath soapy. This beer grows on you the more your drink.

Excellent wit. Fresh tasting. A hint of tangerine. Smooth and very wheaty. Back palate is light and refreshing. World class for the style.

It sounds great it just isn't. Not much flavor to thin on the tongue. Not a prominent yeast. Not what I would want from a wit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle release #4. Sheen pale yellow pour with a foamy white head that dissipates to a film. Aroma is musk pepper and malt. Taste is pepper musky and meaty with signs of yeast and spice. Palate comes off medium feel with a slick yet chaulky dry finish. I really like this one tasty throughout!

Bomber shared. Poured a lightly hazy yellow with nice white head. Nice aroma of wheat, orange zest, sweet malts. The flavor was mild and full of flavors. Bready malts, orange and coriander. One of the best wits I have had.
