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.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s. Turbid dull yellow toward chardonnay colored with minimal fizzy white head. Nose is a great medley of limey orange zesty citrus, clovey and coriander spice, malt. Tastes citric, limey, orange zesty up front, with a mid-palate hit of malt and clove and coriander spices. It all works together extremely well, and makes this one a beer I had to stop myself from downing in one big swig, and wishing I had a six pack. A wonderful wit..

DrSilverworm (6934) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by Jay. ABV labeled 6%, Best by 7/2013. Hazy white / yellow color. Thin white head, dots of lace. Big orange peel and spice in the nose. Medium body, light smooth carbonation. Good spicy aftertaste. Sweet taste, kind of zesty. Some kind of savory taste (probably from that mystery spice) that I don’t usually get from a wit in here. Respectable wit, with a bit of a creative twist.

Pint at Up in Pittsburgh. Pours a hazy pale yellow-gold with a small white head. Light aroma of citrus, coriander, bread, and wheat. Flavor of lemon and orange citrus, coriander, wheat, and very faint pepper. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Good witbier.
