On draft at Falls City Pub, Ohiopyle. Poured hazy gold with white head. Lemony zest, yeast, floral flavor. Crisp but thin, thirst quenching. Solid offering from Full Pint, may check back in this summer.

From a 12oz bottle purchased at The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Pale on the pour and ghastly white first impressions. Could use more of the orange peel to balance the insipid lack of flavor. Sits rather heavy on the gut despite the overall lightness of everything else.

Hazy buttery yellow with pillow white head medium bodied Wit Beer. Strong citrus flavors, and some coriander spice blend very well together. My first beer brewed by Full Pint and I’d say they have a very drinkable Wit.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of LIVEFAST. Thanks Alan! Cloudy light yellow appearance with a huge, off white head. Coriander, fairly yeasty, very citrusy, somewhat spicy, tropical, lemongrass (?) aroma. Light bodied, wheat malty, spicy yeasty, coriander, lemon/orange citrusy flavor. Very easy drinking, tasty witbier. Reminds me a lot like Dogfish Head Namaste.

Capa (1943) - Manama, BAHRAIN - NOV 26, 2011
Clear yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is begin yeast, citrus, coriander, spicy aroma. Medium to thin body. Flavor has some sweet fruits, yeast, spice notes. Fairly muted from what I was expecting. Decent.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear and light gold pour with a thick frothy white head. Mild aroma, surprising for a wit, but has that distinct coriander and yeast smell. Spicy coriander at the start of the flavor with a nice and slightly bitter wheat backbone. Very mild orange and a pleasant spice sweetness at the end coupled with a very subtle bitter note.

Yum! This was my roommate’s... I took it out of the fridge ’cause she won’t be back until Tuesday. I’m gonna replace it, I promise! Good to know that this tasty, fruity, sort of apricot-y wheat bear is being brewed right here in the Pittsburgh area!

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of wheat, orange, coriander, yeast, and spices. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, creamy, dense, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of wheat, coriander, yeast, and grain. Light to medium body. Slightly thick, then slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Wheat, coriander, yeast finish is lightly sweet and lightly bitter.

This one is decent. Spicy, with coriander and oranges in the nose. Hazy, pale, mediocre lacing. Some body to this, with some yeasty notes, a bit of banana, more spices and citrus. Nice, from pic 6 state college.
