Bottle. An interesting beer. Very cloudy with a bubbly white head. Tastes kind of fruity. It is very light and easy to drink.

Very pale gold with a high sticky white head. Fairly subtle aroma, some orange, spice, herb. Malty, slightly spicy, light flavors. Effervescent but lush mouthfeel. Great! Underrated!

11.2 oz bottle and sampled in my smaller Great Lakes snifter: Pours a cloudy light golden hue with a small fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of wheatbread, orange peel, coriander, floral and herbal esters about. The taste starts twangy and citric with just a touch of spice and flowery notes upon the finish. Strangely, a bit of grapefruit surprises me in the end. The feel is quite lively and refreshing, a bit chalky upon the finish. This is more like a Upland Wheat Ale with the lemon notes of the Upland replaced by orange overtones in this beer. I would drink it again, but not at $4 a pop.

Pale yellow but not very yeasty. Not a whole lot of aroma. Little head. Tart and somewhat bitter. Thin in body and gassy. This is a hard style to get right as this beer attests to.

Expensive brand, and not really worth it. This is a nice beer I guess, but I would never recognise anything resembling a wit. It taste like a cloudy fizzy ale and is not light or easy to drink. I didn’t hate it but NOT worth the $4 price.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 Pours hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Scent is fruity and very floral. The taste is almost like someone took a tulip and spun it around in the beer. A great summertime beer.

Try it again Cornfield...your bottle must have been skunked. I get fresh orange peel and coriander (a Japanese Belgian???) fresh fruit, spices, and spritzy citrus notes... really interesting and refreshing...but I could pick this as a Japanese beer in one sip in a blind taste test, no problem...

Orange blossoms and almond blossoms predominate the nose with a very nice citrus and spice finish wonderfully drinkable.
