malrubius (2134) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 12, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle in pint glass. Very cloudy and pale orange with lasting flat head and some lace. Strong coriander and mild citrus aroma. Very citrusy tart fruit flavor with strong coriander spice and unpleasant bitterness, maybe from the nutmeg. Medum-light body and medium-high carbo. I dunno. I like a sweet and mildly spiced white beer. This is tart and bitter.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle. aroma of Ivory soap, pine, perfume, cut flowers. Quite fragrant. Pours a bright, cloudy yellow with a very thin white head. Lots of soap notes on the tongue. Creamy wheat, orange peel and coriander. A touch of ginger and white pepper. Body is on the bigger side for a Wit. Lively carbonation. finishes with a lasting spiciness. Nice stuff!

Bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Poured a hazy yellow with a medium sized fizzy head. Nose was fruity with hints of orange peel, coriander, and a hint of lime?? A very clean refreshing Witbier.

[bottle] Pours a hazy golden yellow. Juicy orange aroma; peppery. Flavors are very fruity, strong ripe orange and citrus peel combined with tart wheat and spice. Finishes dry, with strong carbonation. Very good stuff.

This beer caught me off guard at first, but sure enough I fell for it soon thereafter. It is a soft pale straw color, slightly cloudy. Its not crisp, but not too creamy either. There is a unique flavor in this beer, which I think might be attributed to the yeast strain, but it is enjoyable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2008
It’s a style I usually do not usually appreciate, but this is a kick ass witbier. Pours hazy pale gold. Smells like smoked bacon and lemon vinagrette. Palate is light, fizzy and refreshing. The flavors are incredibly complex for this style. Spicy, bitter, and smoky. White pepper, zest, salt, smoke. Finishes dry and clean with a bitter zing. This beer has depth and complexity.

posikyle (165) - Alabama, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Pours pale yellow, quickly dissipating head. Citrucy aroma. Flavor is malts up fronts, orange peels at the back. Not much else to say...pretty good, but not outstanding.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - FEB 28, 2008
this pours a milky pale yellow color with a soft white head that leaves behind a small trail of lacing. enticing aroma... it’s fun trying to figure out what everything is!... cardamon, canned OJ, bread and nutmeg burns the nostrils. very mimosa-esque flavor... tart lemon, OJ concentrate, nutmeg, coriander, peppery/spice, grassy hoppiness, ginger-like burn and dryness. dry crisp finish. spices linger in the aftertaste. full bodied. the carbonation takes it to a creamy level. this works quite well...
