GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Pours hazed lemon yellow w/ a full spritzy froth that slowly reduce to a few small white clumps. Aroma of candied flowers. Light nectar w/ ample reidual effers. Flavors are medium dry, lightly tart and crisp with margarita salt and a spicey tropshire. A lemony citrus rind acidity cleans the palate for the next sip. This brew is delicate w/ comlex citrus and spice flavors. Lil asprin tingle on the finish. Well balanced. Overall: It’s an Imperial Witbier. All flavors are intensified. A connoisseurs lemonaide. I highly recommend this classic.

LOVED THIS. Bottle. Pours a big full creamy head that bubbles away quickly. The color is a lovely hazy gold. Eathy cereal and citrus (orange and grapefruit) aromas. Taste was a exercise in balance that came close to perfection. Nice bready sweetness, some spice, a little citrus, a little bitter, finishing with a touch of floral perfuminess. Very crisp on the palate with lots of lively carbonation.

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Medium hazy gold, good sized persistent head. Aroma was a pleasant intermingling of wheat and very fresh orange marmalade, the kind with chunks of orange peel mixed in. Flavor was absolutely fantastic, layers of citric notes, including pineapple, light lemon, and more orange. This all moves into a lighlty spicy finish of coriander and white pepper. Zingy. I really liked this, a top notch wit that is worth seeking out for fans of the style.

obguthr (3923) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle 2008? Spicy wheat malt, clover, and sage aroma. Cloudy amber. Caraway, with wheat malt at midpalate. Finishes with sage and lemon. Very very neat. Good longevity

CapFlu (4549) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
(75cl bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquor for ~$12. Pours a huge, highly carbonated white foamy head atop a cloudy, sediment-filled yellow body. Nose is great with yeast, wheat and vanilla. Good alcohol front, crisp hoppiness. Sweet lemon and oh so smooth. Reminds me of Saxo. --- reviewed on RateBeer.com

pintocb (645) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Great beer. Cloudy and murky looking. Smells like all the citrus in the world is in my glass. Taste backs up that smell. Very carbonated. Lots of lemon and peach in the flavor. Clean finish, but not too dry.

turbothy (1102) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2012
Pours opaque light golden with huge white head. Hoppy, spicy aroma. Lots of spice in the flavour, which is very nice and well balanced. Good with spicy food or by itself :)

Ottima! Aroma incredibilmente speziato con qualcosa di prosecco, grano saraceno e agrume. Al gusto, la frizzantezza eccessiva rinnova la mia impressione ad avvicinarla a un prosecco (nota che si conferma quando si scalda). Si percepiscono anche il coriandolo, Curaçao e l’agrumato. E’ una birra che rafforza la mia affezione a questo birrificio.

75 cl. bottle divided by 3 @ Bier Central. Bottled on 14/01/2012 – BBF at least one year after bottling. Slightly above 1 year old now. Pours a pale golden with a big fluffy white head. Nose is very sharp, citrus, lots of sharp white pepper, hay, peel, sharp wheat & coriander / sharp. Taste is sharp upfront, sharp, iron, lightly mineral, hay, sharp wheat, sharp coriander pellets, soft wheat, very clean sharp leaning into what I think are actually pleasant side-effects of aging, not a beer I would wager to get better with age but there is some soft sweetness in the back, soft white Italian grapes, even may touch mango, dash sharp white pepper in the back. Very clean, very sharp, neat wheat backbone. One fine witbeer.
