jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2007
From a 12 oz. bottle, coded freshness date in the lower right hand corner, another printed freshness date in the lower left, sampled in a pint glass. Cloudy pale yellow appearance with a tight micro bubbly, creamy foam white head, good retention, minimal amount of laced sticking. Smells of earthy, musty yeast, clove and a light coriander, spicy herbs, and fruity wheat maltiness. Good carbonation lends itself to a crisp light bodied mouthfeel, dry spicy, sweet malty taste, a sticky clove on the tongue, coriander, herbs, sour lemon and orange peel, a pinch of white pepper, fruity, bready wheat malts, a nice twang from the malts, an affable drinkability, refreshing on humid July day. So far, this is easily the best seasonal American witbier Iíve tried this summer, I have a few more to try, but I found this offering from Flying Dog to be impressive.

Pale yellow appearance, with a large head. There is a very strong coriander aroma. The coriander is also very present in the flavor, along with a very good balance of wheat and malt. The palate is a tad harsh, but not really moreso than most beers. It really is an excellent witbier!

The Dan Journal #90. Tasted 6/25/2007. 12oz bottle. Hazy golden yellow hue. Ring of white head. Aromas of honey and corriander, floral and slightly musty yeast. Light to medium bodied with a slight citrus acidity. Touch bananas. Citrus orange flavors. Wheaty zesty. Decent attempt.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 16, 2007
12 oz bottle from Country Club Liquors, Bakersfield; nose of a little funk, spices, grain, and citrus; hazy yellow with a medium white head; flavor of tangerine, corriander, yeast, and a little hop bitterness. Pretty good actually, would be a great session beer!

bhensonb (11046) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Yeasty aroma with some citrus. Hazy pale lemon color with a white head thatís respectable. Coriander shows as the glass approaches the lips. Thin bodied, but somewhat creamy, with fizzy carbonation. Got a hit of banana for start, then some lemon or orange, light wheaty malt, finishing with orange oil for balance. Very refreshing. Itís not Hoegaarden, but itís a decent competitor.

Bottle poured a cloudy yellow with a large lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, coriander and citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of wheat, light corianderand some orangey citrus notes with a crisp refreshing finish.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle shared with Blankboy, his bottle. Cloudy yellow, decent sized white head. Awful aroma - garbage smell - weird. Better taste - yeasty, lemon rind, some hops even in finish. Watery. Not recommended.

12 ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester NY (June 2007, served a bit above fridge temperature from a Duvel glass. Pours bright, pale cloudy gold with just a touch of lasting head....aroma is citrus-dominated with some evident buttery-biscuity malts, a touch of spice, orange peel/marmalade and a bit of honey, light yeasty funkiness; sweeter and softer than many wit aromas but fairly engaging....the body, thankfully, is much drier, surprisingly so -- thatís 2 American wits Iíve had in a row that were appropriately dry and herbal/earthy, what gives? -- anyway, the carbonation is a bit too strong, giving this a bit of a mineral-water character, but there is some pleasant chalky-salty character towards the finish, and the citrus peel and spices remain though quite light and barely at the threshhold of consciousness; light biscuity malts come more into prominence with some warmth....on the whole this is a solid entry into this very average breweryís portfolio, though itís nothing really special in the grand scheme of things.

tagz (337) - Alabama, USA - JUL 11, 2007
bottle. cloudy yellow with decent white head. nice banana and citrus aroma and flavor. good malt character and spices as well. carbonation isnít as refined as other witbiers and the taste isnít as dynamic as it could be but its a good example of the style. i would definitely buy this again.

Glouglouburp (6023) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2007
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 Very cloudy dark-blonde body with almost no head. Malt profile tastes like dried wheaty bread (like those we eat with soups). Somewhat yeasty beer. Strong lemony flavour with a flavourful tartness. Far from a watery witbier it is rather full bodied for the genre. This is the brand new (summer 2007) product Flying Dog. Slightly above average witbier that is refreshing but doesnít bring anything new to this limited genre. For a brewery that usually focuses on beers with a lot of oomph this is like a fashion chain coming out with a white t-shirt.
