3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy soft gold body with a fine white head and active effervescence. Strong coriander and wheat expression in the nose with a quieter orange peel note. Dandelion, bread and honey malt. The grains of paradise seem more like a generic spice or maybe like anise or some kind of aquavit herb mixture. Herbal and perfumy and soft and creamy and a little sweet and a little acidic and a little soapy.

prawlie (1095) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle into a pint glass. Yellow and slightly cloudy, bubbly head that doens’t hang around long. Lovely citrus and spice wit aroma. Nice, smooth, wheat, light citrus, coriander. Very Hoegaarden, but perhaps a little more refined, and more spiced.

DiarmaidBHK (3370) - 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!

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 19, 2013
On tap @ Congregation Long Beach. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Nose is spicy coriander and sweet malt. Lemon zest, orange peel, and some banana. A touch grassy. Flavor is pleasantly sweet. Good doughy malt. Yeast, banana, and orange. Light coriander, some white pepper, and a hint of lemon and grass. Not bad.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Sample at the tap room in Denver. Slightly cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spice and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal wheat, citrus and subtle hops. The finish is fruity up front with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Gription79 (2232) - 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.

Butters (3733) - 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.

BMan1113VR (7832) - 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.
