WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Tap at West Chester location. Pours cloudy yellow with a bright white ring. Nose is touch of spice. Taste has a big punch of coriander and was quite tasty.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
Tap at the brewery. Body-usual unfiltered hazy body with a loose foamy half inch head. Nose-light white spices, soap. Taste-thin, very mild coriander, very very light white spice, lemon, crisp light acid, good dose of wheat, almost no orange, citrus is low. All in all a mildly acidic, low citrus, medium wit. Enjoyable only because it isn’t full of the usual awful suntan lotion tasting flavors that Belgian Wit yeasts usually impart.

(Draught, labeled Blanche de Hill) Pours a cloudy yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, banana, clove, orange peel, and wheat. Flavor of coriander, wheat, and lemon.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Tap@WestChester. Nicely spiced, drinkable - but apparently not memorable, because I don’t remember anything else.

Goodgrief (1770) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at Wilmington location: Cloudy orange pour with a minimal large bubble head. Aroma was spicy and the flavor was pepper overload, with very little sweetness at all. Lots of coriander and pepper. Lots. Was ok...the pepper edge blunted a little as it warmed and some noticeable lemon/citrus emerged and something perfumy. A review previous mentioned jasmine...yeah, that might be it. Still, not awesome.

beerbill (3333) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2008
On tap at Newark. This is my last beer stop of the vacation. Arrived at the table a cloudy yellow gold with a dense, thin white head that lasted through the first third of the glass. Pleasant but mild aroma of lemons and coriander. The flavor is a bit more complex with wheat, orange, lemon and coriander all present. A bit light bodied, but definitely refreshing.

auerbrau (3157) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 4, 2008
10oz Pour at the Wilmington location. Light lemon-orange citrus spritz aroma. Light bandaid belgian yeast. Pours a clouded orange (pale) with a silky white head. Flavor is largely non-offensive, but a carries some light wheatiness. Yeast is a bit too rubbery and hexanous for me. Some dirty witbier. Dry. Crisp. A bit of leafy hop. Meaty yeast finish.

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2008
pours hazy gold with virtually no head. very incense-like aroma, like Jasmine...(maybe a little nag champa?) ...very interesting. taste is floral, lots of incense. light wheat backing, starfruit, pear, a little bitter citrus. a little thinner than most belgian whites. aftertaste is orange, tangerine, pear. pretty cool.

bubbleflubber (1784) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2008
On tap at the Lancaster brewer, under the "Belgian Wit" moniker. Clear golden pour with a suds cap and similar lace. The nose is spicy, with integration of plantains and citrus. Spiced, light bready flavors with wheat pulling through banana and orange to a slight pie-spiced finish. Well done for the style, and better than some, (cough) macro (cough, MolsonCoors, cough, Blue Moon) offerings. The mouthfeel is right for summer, nice and light, though showing some complexity through the pull without compromising for a heavier substance in the palate.

GMCC2181 (1500) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 17, 2008
On tap at Newark; Like a blue moon but better. Nice muddy yellow color. Aroma was sweet orange. Taste was wheaty, fruity and some spice thrown in. Also Banana and orange. Over a good summer time brew that I would get again.
