AbeerWolf (27) - USA - JAN 30, 2008
A uniquely satisfying beer. Immediate hints of spice and cloves. Slight citrus flavor that is both refreshing and substantial. Crisp finish with a sweet aftertaste. A beer than needs to be tried multiple times to truly appreciate.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Hazy yellow pour. Moderate frothy head that recedes quickly leaving tight lacing. Aroma of spices and malt esp coriander. Tastes sweet with hints of coriander, nutmeg and allspice.

moseslikesbeer (183) - conestoga, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2008
bottle. smelled like a white but also smelled like rotten fruit. very cloudy yellow. little white head. lots of carbonation. the taste is kind of odd. tastes like a white but also something else i can’t figure out. very bitter after taste that i just don’t care for. solid white beer. not great but not bad.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Hazy pale golden pour with a finger thick clean white head that settles nicely. Noticeable carbonation. Spices on the nose with some malt and light fruit. Not as much spice as I expected from a witbier. The spice seems to be dulled somehow. Some stale or dried apple flavor. Malty aftertaste.

weihenweizen (1746) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Refrigerated bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours a hazy pale yellow with medium head that stays around a while. The body is fairly thin, nice lacing, and high carbonation. The taste is wet wheat, sour citus, and coriander. Not a bad beer.

gyllenbock (4718) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle. Hazy light yellow with a small white foam. Light aroma of hay, lemon, wheat, spices and yeast. Flavor was mild with wheat, yeast, citrus and coriander. Light body and lively carbonation. Refreshing but nothing spectacular.

Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didn’t care for this beer much. White beers aren’t high on my list.

On tap at Wolfgang Puck’s in the Borgata casino in Atlantic City. Surprisingly spicy. Coupled with the citrus flavors it was both thirst-quenching and -inducing. Will try it again from a bottle when the mood strikes for a light summer beer.

OTownKnight (38) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Aroma is spicy with a hint of orange. Pours a hazy, cloudy light orange/yellow color. Frothy white head. Light on the palate. Heard many great things about this beer, some said its the best they’ve ever had. The beer didn’t meet my high expectations. You can taste a slight bit of orange while spices, possibly nutmeg, were the overpowering taste. Don’t get me wrong, this is a very good beer, but it wasn’t as amazing as people told me. Enjoy it, but don’t be fooled by those who say this is the best beer they’ve had. 12/20
