Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2009
Pros: Gorgeous appearance, long lasting cream. Well conditioned. Excellent mouth feel and weight on the palate. Has a lot going on. It’s a fairly complex beer, with several spice elements.

Cons: Out of balance coriander and nutmeg notes in both the nose and flavor.

Overall, it’s kick ass. But could be improved.

RafeAU (293) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2015
bottle in osaka. pale yellow white cloudy. no head. spice and orange is subtle. unusual in the use of nutmeg but it is very subtle. flavours and aromas are overall very muted. A decent but unexceptional belgian white ale.

Enfin une bière blanche de référence. Un gout de grain, une longueur inouïe en bouche qui finit par des touches de fruits rouges. Ça faisait longtemps que je ne m’étais pas régalé sur une blanche.

Tognetta (182) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 9, 2015
Amarelo leitoso, espuma branca que se desfaz bem rapidamente. Aroma delicado adocicado, maltado, bem ao fundo citrico (nesse quesito faltou intensidade). Paladar traz um pouco de amargor, adocicado também leve, corpo leve/médio bastante adequado ao estilo. Aftertaste refrescante, porém breve, paladar de cereais. Uma boa wit, mas faltou um diferencial, algum destaque.

ContemplateBeer (1653) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 7, 2015
Aroma: Fresh, lemon intense nose with tart, but dry wheat; slight coriander. Appearance: Mostly hazy pale yellow with a foamy white head that settled into a sticky, bubbly skin. Flavor: Dried out wheat and lemon peel; doesn’t have the yeasty sweetness of so many other Witbiers; perfumed coriander finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: For me, what a Witbier should be. Would definitely give this a shot if you see it on tap (as I did, at Gralehaus).

rjplumer (588) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 3, 2015
Light orange lemon aroma. Bright yellow body with floating sediment. Soap bubbly head that does hang around. Soft but crisp lemon orange. Clean and refreshingly tart finish.

Bottle - cloudy straw with a fizzy bright white head. Aroma of cloves and yeast. Taste of cloves, yeast and hay. Light body, high carbonation.

Hazy orange with small white head. Citrus, lemon, coriander, earth, green apples and some funk. Fruity, wheat and sweet finish. Overall: pretty good!

Grassy and floral hop aromas, very lemony. Hazy straw color with a decently lasting white head. Dry, very aromatic. Light-medium bodied, prevalent yeasty mouthfeel.

stravale (2388) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 9, 2015
Bottle @ Marlborough Arms, Chester [280115]
Light orange, no head
Aroma - Soft herbal
Taste - Strange herbal, soft citrus, odd spicy vegetal, just weird, peppery
Palate - Medium carb, light body. Finish as main flavour.
Overall - Not sure about this one...was the last beer at the end of the night though
