COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Slightly higher in alcohol content than traditional Wits, ours is brewed using wheat, oats, authentic Belgian yeast, malts and just a sprinkle of hops. Spices include coriander, sweet and bitter orange peel and grains of paradise.

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.

Gription79 (2293) - 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 (3811) - 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.

Sampled on 3/23/2011. This Witbier pours a light yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy and yeasty. A light to medium bodied Witbier. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. Spicy, notes of coriander and orange peel, and some pepper. Very drinkable. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp, and a touch dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Steve_0 (2822) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2014
On tap at the Denver brewery. Pour is hazy golden with a small white head and good lacing. White pepper, basil, lavender, light vanilla, biscuit, herbal, grass, and straw in the aroma. Taste is heavy spice - lavender, basil, white pepper - lemons, grass, biscuit, vanilla, and phenols with a spicy finish. Light body with high carboantion. Decent beer but a bit too heavy on the lavender to be a great wit for me.

Bottle pour. Hazy golden color with large foamy white head and nice lacing. Orange and bread aroma. Smooth medium body. Strong bread taste that taste a little like bananas. Also orange followed by a strong hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ekoerper (589) - Iowa, USA - MAY 11, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Douglas88. Aroma: wheat malt and lots of spices, orange, lemon, coriander and grains of paradise come in pretty strong. Slight vegetable note, maybe from the coriander. Pours cloudy golden-straw color with a vanishing white head, minimal lacing. Flavor is lemon, light orange, wheat malt, coriander, again a bit of a vegetable note. Light body, high carbonation.
