UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 It appeared a very corn-colored cloudy, like a lemon jellybean, and didn’t look very appetizing at all. The white head looked like spa foam. It was sweet and fruity on the nose, with some citrus sours like weak lemonade. Clean, crisp, and way too carbonated, the beer had the consistency and some of the flavor of champagne (thin, foamy, watery). It also appeared to have some melon-y notes. Overall, it seemed to me like the Belgian version of Miller Genuine Draft. Edit: This beer has a way of growing on you. Although it has too much carbonation for a proper ale, it is nicely spiced and appropriately sweet for a wit.

Lowe1983 (1483) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Pours a cloudy, light golden color with a white head. Aroma is of lemon, coriander, yeast, and some bubblegum. Flavor is pretty much the same, a pretty standard witbier.

House of Brews: aaaahhhh Witbier! Love this during the summer! And while this beer is a good representation of the style, it’s certainly not the best... The color and head is everythng you’d come to expect from this style: light yellow, white head, lingering, decent lacing. Aroma is of bitter citrus, taste reveals the same... a bit watery, a bit more on the bitter side as well. Bad hangover!!!

(Back log) On tap @ Shawnee Mountain. Pours a hazy straw yellow color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of wheat, lemon, and some breadyness. Taste is tart lemon, wheat, clove, black pepper, and coriander.

Ujdzie jak na "wita". Trochę tu brakuje aromatu. W smaku jest ok. Kormorana Witbier duuużo lepszy.

It has got in its aroma and flavour hints of orange and grapefruit. The beer is almost clear with a slight haze, and a good sized head. For my first wheat beer it was OK but I was expecting something more special than what I got.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2003 On tap in the Cellar, St. Andrews. It's like drinking a freakin bail of hay. That in itself was too overpowering for me to pick up on anything else. ReRate: I was far too hasty with this. It takes some time to get used to the straw flavor, but once that sets in a very nice citrus flavor slides in. Still not my favorite, but far better than I originally found it to be.
