Went with proper glassware on this and am feeling better about the Weizen than I know I would have if Iíd gone with the Issaquah-branded tumbler in my glassware cabinet. Cracking the cap and pouring the beer, I find the liquid a molasses-pineapple hue under a thin, soapy, white foam. The aroma is nutmeg, coriander and sweet dough, although I find something akin to green apple wood underneath it all. I sip at the glass and discover the flavors are a clone of the aroma excepting the presence of that orange peel laying itself out across the inside of my cheeks and landing on the back of my tongue. It wasnít there for me in the aroma, but blammm! Right there now. The beer is a bit flat in the glass, and thatís to be expected, but itís still quite lively on each sip. Iím actually enjoying it more than I thought I would, considering the rating. The deeply cloudy brew has a lightweight body, a bit oily on my tongue, and very pleasant and demure in its finish. This is a summer beer...something that I would find amazing after a long day working in the garden, but itís not an everyday go-to. I do know one home brewer that killed a recipe very similar to this. I wonder what he would think of it?

On tap and poured into a sampler glass. Bright coriander and orange zest come through on this effervescent, light pale, hazy beer. Itís topped by a medium, white, fluffy-creamy ring and it leaves behind a dense, medium sheet lace. The taste is a medium sweetness and v ery light spice bitterness. Itís light bodied and somewhat oily thin with a fizzy, light body. Citrus notes of lemon and orange come through on the palate with a spice finish that lingers lightly on the palate.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow to orange color with a one finger soft white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing speckling the sides of the glass. The smell had a decent coriander to cardamom to clove up front. A light refreshing sweet banana and orange with a light lemon enlivens my nose. The taste was mainly sweet with a nice spice from the previously noted spices. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style and for me. Sharp enough but refreshing as well. Orange - like and appealingly slightly spicy aftertaste and dry finish. Overall, good witbier I would have again.

Light honey colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing, but there is some. Big yeasty aroma with hints of spice and lemon, citrus. Taste is a pleasant mix of coriander, orange, malt and yeast. A little sweet. Finishing on the dry side. Not bad.

Bought this on a whim because the Issaquah Brewery is down the street. Surprisingly good. Belgian style white ale in flavor, with nice almost Christmas ale-type spices complimenting the malt perfectly. Quite light, and clocks in as a session in the low 5% range. Recommended; solid B+. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Mckayís Taphouse, Bellingham
Cloudy blond color, small head. There is a light what aroma and flavor, some malt flavor too, light malt crispness, light cookies, light spiciness (elegant one); correct bitterness.
Among white beers, a quite good one.

lusikka (7594) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2012
Draught @ Rogue Ales Public House, San Francisco. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a cloudy, murky, dirty yellow colour. Actually looks like Koduolu or peach juice. No head at all. Aroma is really intense with Christmassy spices and pumpkin pie. Flavour of sweet malts, strong cinnamon and nutmeg, grass and some light bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a spicy sweet finish. A really spicy witbier which makes this rather interesting.

Pours hazy blond with a small white head. Smell is light fluffy coriander, clove, and a faint hint of citrus. Taste is somewhat spicy, leathery mouthfeel, sticky. Not my favorite Wit.
