I had it on tap. Interesting beer, and even when it wasn’t bad, it tasted a bit too pumpkinish to me

rosenbergh (6582) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
12 oz bottle. A. From Iowa. A big thank you goes to John M!
Hazy pale yellow colour with a small white head. Wheat, yeast and mild bitterness in the aroma. Good. The flavour is yeast, wheat, bread, mild bitterness and some spices. Quite good. Very round but also a bit bland.

Prufrockstar (831) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw-colored with white head, good retention, but no lacing. Aroma: yeast, sulfur, pepper and clove. Light, wheaty sweetness, some mineral, and then a crisp, dry finish. Lively carbonation, light body. Refreshing - a nice wit.

triplehopped (37) - - AUG 17, 2013
Tap, foggy pale yellow (honestly, looked like urine) with a minuscule white head that left a surprisingly large lace. Malty aroma, tasted medium sweet. Light bodied with average carbonation, finished clean. Overall, a tasty and beautiful ale.

magsinva (873) - Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle from John’s Grocery - tried this one last night and its solid, aroma is lemony (I seem to be on a lemon kick lately) with some nice wheat tones. It pours a cloudy pale orange with a white head. Still surprised that I liked this one too much.

DiarmaidBHK (3380) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle from Johns Grocery. Pours yellow and cloudy with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Bright orange peel and coriander on the nose. Solid orange on the tongue. Dries the mouth out on the finish. Pretty solid example of the style.

malrubius (1651) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle from Johns. Very pale cloudy yellow orange with lasting dense head and lace. Fresh aromas of tangy wheat orange and coriander. Very refreshing light orange lemon sweetness with mildly bitter herbal dry tangy clean finish. Refreshing light body with nice carbo. An excellent wit. I could easily drink the whole thing in one quaff.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a thin head. Plain wheaty base, light lemony citric and spicy notes, and a hint of sweetness. Not bad.

jcnielsen (2005) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange color with white head. Spicy, coriander, belgian yeast aromas. Wheat, cracker, spicy flavors. Pretty tasty witbier.
