CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2006
On tap at the brewpub on 4/28/06: Pours a hazy golden with a thin-lacing ring of white head. Good, fresh aroma abounds with coriander citrus character authenticity balanced with lightly sweet biscuity malt. Body starts with a light malty sweetness, good coriander and citrus flavor balanced toward a crisp, semi-dry finish. A nice witbier.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2006
I really liked the nose on this one. One of the best wits I have ever smelled if not the best. The body was very cloudy yellow with a persistent scum of a white head. The aroma was lots of clove with a little corriander and some orange peel. The taste was spicy with bananas and some tropical mango chcaracter. There was a light spice of both corriander and clove.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Cloudy yellow in color. A lot of spiciness and clove in this one with a refreshing citric flavor (not sweet). This seems more to style than a typical American Micro would do. Not a big fan of the style, but this one is done well.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2006
(Draught) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a moderate white head. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, lemon, and cloves. Flavor of wheat and lemon.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Draft @ Flossmoor Station: Murky yellow-orange color. The sweet yeasty aroma was pretty spiced. Mostly cloves. The flavor was sweet with a light lemon tartness. Spicey and yeasty. Medium bodied.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Served with a foamy, white head, this beer had an opaque, golden/sandy body. Aromas are an onslaught of spices: clove oil, pepper, big corriander and a lick of licorice. All of these carry through to the flavor with a dash of cinnamon and a pleasant, dry floral quality that Iíve seen in Hoegaarden and other fine Wits. Consistency of thin milk with a grapeskin finish. If youíre a spice fan, this is for you... a dominating presence in an otherwise delicate category (maybe a bit over-the-top, but Iím not complaining!).

hopscotch (9065) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Draft... Pre-DLD06... Murky, yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Smells of damp straw and funk. The flavor is balanced and very spicy. Medium-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. Finishes crisp, spicy and dry. Refreshing!... but one of my least favorite styles.

ElGaucho (2201) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Draught at brewpub. Good, fresh, strong banana aroma with hints of plumeria. Orangish, yellow, thick, hazy body with nice lace. A little thin in the body. Allspice notes. An average wit.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2006
A lightly sour wheat with a hint of Belgian spicing that refreshes nicely and does not demand too much of the taster. Kind of a Blue Moon clone to my way of thinking.
