Pours turbid dull gold with 1-finger white head. Nose is dry florals, lime, white pepper, coriander. Tastes citric, limey, white peppery, with clean, dry floral notes, and a very smooth finish, with solid complexity for this style.

Pretty weak. Tasted like a wheat ale instead of a witbier. No spice at all. The taste was dominated by fruit and wheat. Very sweet. Light bodied and a little watery. Sweet finish as well. Refreshing.

The aroma is orange, apple cider, and wheat. Cloudy orange pour. This is a hoppy wheat ale with light spices and a Belgian influence. Mostly mellow and dry. I tried this on tap in the Ithaca area and in a bottle. Nice.

I was very unimpressed with this beer. It poured an anemic yellow then took on a more natural hue in the glass. Flavor was bland. Finish was forgettable. I’ll pass on this one next time.

Did not think this was a Belgian white when I had it - much more like a summer premium lager. Appearance is clear gold with fizzy white head. Aroma a bit of lemon and wheat but weak. Flavor is plain malt, slightly sweet with a bit of lemon. Overall, mediocre but refreshing.

12oz bottle: Sunny yellow pour with a nice, creamy head. The pour certainly fits the part. The aroma seems a bit hard to pull out. Slightly wheaty, the nose also offers a hint of sweet orange and citrusy hops. The body is almost tart from the start, opening up the flavors. I detected a lot of candied orange, sugary vanilla and coriander. This was very refreshing, but the body seemed muddled as I drank more and more of the glass. Just OK.

On tap at the Bocktown, nice place! Slightly hazy pale yellow. Tea froth head. Smells like mild wheat . Hits of grass an hay on the tongue, also a bit tart. Friendly and easy to get along with. Many of the attributes of a good lager. Some bitterness barely detectable. Well behaved finish with some mild hints of vanilla. Nice session brew. Very enjoyable.

A so so wit. Doesnít have the normal witbier qualities but it is drinkable. Aroma was so so. Light malt and wheat with just a hint of citrus. Pour was a light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was more like a golden ale than a wit. Light malt and a just a hint of tart wheat in the aftertaste. A good wit this is not, but a good beer it is.

Bottle. Many of the characteristics I like about witbiers just donít show up in this beer, especially the spiciness. That aside, there arenít any off flavors to put you off. Hazy, yellow-straw body with a white head. Aroma has some very light coriander and some citrus. The vlaor is lightly sweet and lightly tart. The finish is very dry. Medium body and watery texture.

Pours a clouded straw gold that has a nice white head that falls quickly. Nose is citrus and a bit of lemongrass as well. The scents are there, but not powerful or overly strong. Gives a rather smooth and calm fragrance. Flavor is thick with wheat and has a few good dashes of light citrus flavors. Not overly strong or complex though. Feel is nice and smooth on the liquid with small bubbles of carbonation hitting the tongue. Overall very drinkable. A smooth and calm witbier that is definitely worth trying. Nice job Ithaca!
