BuckeyeSammy (559) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Clear golden, low head, minimal lacing. Great aroma of weed, cinnamon, and spice. Very drinkable. Flavor very tangy and citrusy, orange zest, light spice, wheat. Nicely balanced carbonation. No finish though, was disappointed at the tail end of this beer on the palate. Unique belgian wheat.

Pours pale yellow with light head. Very lemony aroma that overpowers everything else... bit of yeast. Flavor is very lemony. Different.

17thfloor (2437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2010 2.13.08 Pours light yellow, see-thru, with a medium sudsy white head. Smells very spicy, ginger, some cashews and a little bit of pepper. Very unique white ale. Lemon, orange zest, and somewhat grassy for a wit. Very tangy and citrusy. More like a soda than a beer. Very drinkable. Somewhat heavier body for the crisp carbonation, but I like that. Unique, solid, and somewhat different. Has definite mimosa like qualities and is growing on me. Extra point for the bottle. 6.4.8.5.16 . . . . . . . . . [rerate] 6.13.10. Pours a slightly orange straw color with fantastic fizzy frothy white head, near perfect for a belgian wit. Aroma is a bit appley, nutmeg, has a ginger-like smell, doesnít smell overly sweet . Flavor is fairly dry but allows the little bit of sharp apple sweetness to dominate, plenty of coriander in the flavor that becomes overwhelmed towards the finish by the nutmeg, take the nutmeg down a bit and Iíll love it more, the sweetness with the spicing leaves a very odd bitterness in the mouth. Medium bodied, fantastic fluffy fizzy carbonation, actually kind of crunchy. Solid but not near the allstar that I remember. Soapy. 7.4.7.4.13

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 29, 2008
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a long lasting bright white head. Intense aroma of pears and pineapple. Fantastic coriander-like flavors. Peppery on the sides of the tongue. Remarkable smooth with a mild lemon finish. A really delicious beer.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy dark golden color with a thick white head. Aroma of wheat and light yeast. Crisp citrus notes with a good amount of spice and clove. What makes this beer stand out is the excellent palate and mouthfeel. I think this is one of the best Witbiers Iíve sampled.

Was kind of bored so I thought I would finally rate this, it is an amazing beer. The beer pours to the nth degree of haziness without being murky, orange colored. Itís got a medium sized head that quickly fades, despite that i officially decree this the best looking wit EVER! really never get to see something this dark and thick when it comes to Wiits. Aroma starts with strong sweet orange peel, original in the sweet part of the peel. There are lightly sweet spiky fruits, wild strawberries and some tea-like aspect (I am thinking is from a lot of coriander); great aroma. Taste is spritz-y Oranginia, seriously so much like the juice with light earthy herbs (thinking coriander again). It has a very light airy mouthfeel thats finished of by an aftertaste of well... how do I say... summer! So I did not know this till just now but its actually made with orange juice, thats what must give it that Oranginia feel.
11.2 oz bottle, mix between lager flute and tulip glass.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 11, 2008
11 oz bottle from Bevmo. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The aroma is dominated by citrus scents of orange and lemons with just a hint of spices. The flavor follows the aroma with the lemon dominating. The mouthfeel is full and satisfying. The finish is short and clean. Overall: a very decent witbier. Recommended.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy corn yellow, white head. Aroma is sausage, coriander, chamomile, tangerine. Flavor is the same with nutmeg, clove, slightly funky & wheaty. Reminiscent of a Jolly Pumpkin beer.

JohnCoyne (73) - Alabama, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Smells lightly of sweet mikan, quite pleasant. Pours with a medium head that lasted a few moments. Appearance is hazy and white with quite a bit of carbonation. Taste is refreshing, sharp and sweet with slight hints of curry. Definitely tastes of orange peel and just a hint of coriander. Flavorful and refreshing, although there is a slight after tang of cleaning product.
