On tap at the Grumpy Troll. Cloudy yellow pour. Orange and spice scents. Tastes of fruit and coriander with not much hops. Nice easy drinking beer.

nuplastikk (4399) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
On tap at Grumpy Troll. Hazy, cloudy orange-yellow-tan. Thin white head. Mild toasty aroma. Very citrus forward, but still a quality Wit. Orange coriander all the way. Yeasty and smooth, a pretty decent representation of the style. Nice toasty golden malt balance, almost a touch oily and wheaty. Not perfect, but decent.

Not sure what the purpose of the name of this beer is but it is a standard APWA, not a witbier really.

Narnad (1462) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Arrived a hazy yellow with a low white head. Aroma had a light banana, light lemon citrus fruitiness to it with a modest coriander spiciness and a solid wheat presence. Flavor started off with a lemon wheat combination first and a light coriander middle with just a touch of banana in the ending (very light). Body was crisp, kinda bubbly but very finely carbonated and a light body as a whole. Overall a very good wit (usually not my favorite style). Coriander isn’t overpowering as is commonly seen and the lemon is perfect to add that crisp feeling finish at the end.

cbfobes (2293) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, pours a murky golden with a thin head, appearance really didn’t blow me away at all, kind of reminded me of very dirty water, the aroma has a decent amount of spice with clove and some sweetness, the flavor has touches of both clove with banana and coriander in the finish, meh.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2009
On tap at the brewpub 7/31/09: Pours a hazy pale golden with a thin, clingy-lacing white head. Big orange and lemon citrus nose with a hint of coriander and light sweetness. Starts fairly full with a tart citric bite and a touch of coriander and sweet pale malt finishing drier and sweet tart. A pretty good citrusy witbier.

shigadeyo (3010) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2009

11/16/2007: Norwegian Wit is another hazy, gold-colored offering from Grumpty Troll. It has the typical orange and corriander flavors and soft palate.

Sample (draught) at the Grumpy Troll Brewery, Restaurant and Pizzeria in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin. Rating #11 for this beer.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2009
Murky gold with essentially no head. Bright but fading orange-juice aroma. Flavor is an absolute fruit basket, orange, pineapple, mango. Really a tropical juice cocktail balanced by coriander spice and a touch of hops bitterness. Noticeably still, but the palate is made interesting by a some clove and alcohol fire. Really a nice wit.
