BillKismet (3418) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Cloudy, diluted tang color, no head. In-your-face grapefruit pop to the nose. Flavor is more subdued, but still sings of grapefruit. Juicy and citrusy body. A one note wonder.

Nice citrusy nose, I get lots of grapefruit and a good deal of juniper like spice. Pours hazy light golden, really light, nice light color. Grapefruit, juniper, oranges, light corriander, wheaty finish. Super awesome, light refreshing. Probably best with I’ve had.

CanIHave4Beers (3535) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Sampled at RBSG 2010 grand tasting. The beer pours a very pale yellow with a small head. The aroma is peppery as can be with some lemon and earthy notes. The flavor is peppery and mildly sour with some citrus and lemon drop candy. There is a nice yeasty spiciness to this as well.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle at RBSG. Pours clody yellow, thin white head, no lacing. Nose is cold cream, privet hedge, lemon, wheat. Flavours of candied lemons, spice wheat. A nice wit, but nothing terribly special.

egajdzis (5515) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemongrass, herb, light skunk, citrus, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus, lemon, pine, and light spices, with a crisp finish.

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Sampled at the RBSG Summer Grand Tasting (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a murky golden straw, small whitish head to a ring. Aromas are decent coriander, light tartness moves into big lemon. Light lactic acidity, funky brett, light wheaty malts and bread. Initial is different, light and Belgian yeast slanted with a touch of spice, touch of estery pear, dry zest, light bitterness and a nice big dose of grapefruit juice, touch of lemony tartness grows on me at the backend. Coriander lighter than anticipated, with that telltale and lovely Fantome sourness that grows on the palate. Different, and probably my favorite Witbier for what it’s worth. Sourness is nice, with a touch of coriander and what seems like white pepper.

Nickls (1938) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 20, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle shared by Maxxdaddy) Looks like freshly squeezed light orange juice; didn’t really have much of any head really. Pure fresh grapefruit; sour; and a bit musty aroma. Grapefruity; white pepper; bit of a twang. Thinner overall; very subtle carbonation. Nice drinking; intriguing and at a very low abv which made for easy down. Overall, perhaps one of the strangest in the style that I’ve tried, but certainly enjoyable.

Big thanks to Dany!
Color is clear pale yellow.
Aroma is strong with "I can’t pinpoint what but its an herb/veg and its strong." I am going to guess sage and its awesome. Plenty of citric earthy coriander. In general its strong, green, and natural.
Flavor is spicy of course, not intense on the palate as expected. Has a nice lemony finish from the coriander. Finishes with a good tartness. Its strong and dry coriander. Mouthfeel has a dry finish with a lemon kick at the end. I really liked this beer.
