Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2013
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a cloudy light yellow-orange color with a thick white head. The nose has bits of yeast, pine, and grass. The flavor has a ton of grassy hops with a nice bit of yeast on the back end followed by a dry finish. I would say this one leans more towards the IPA side than the Belgian Wit side.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a large off white head. The aroma has a great mix of the funky belgian yeast, orange peel, and a bit of floral notes. The taste is medium butter, dry, finishing with zesty citrus and some cardamon.

Taste follows aroma with more citrus, caramel sweetness, spice and a lingering light bitterness through the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma has orange and light spice. Flavor follows suit...a bit like orange tea with light clovey and wheaty notes...reminiscent of a wheat beer...earthy bitterness creeps in. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is earthy/bitter and dry.

NikkTwist (2708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Draft at Moriartys. Cloudy orange amber pour. Big fluffy white head. Slight lace. Very dry light golden ale. Mild toasted cereals and amber fruits. Grassy hops. Notes of orange peels, sage, white pepper, coriander, and lemongrass. Appears unfiltered and that helps fill up the body. Bit of a mix between a toastier German Witbier and a mild dry Belgium Strong Ale. Worth a try.

HeadyDE (751) - Delaware, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Draft offering at 2sp...billed as a Belgian pale ale at 5.6 %..light orange hue with a refreshingly dry spicy hop profile and clean finish..aroma of Belgian candi sugars..mouthfeel is overly spicy..bit too spicy...not up there with my usual EVO special draft offerings..
