Tap at the brewery. A golden cloud with a small, white fluffy head. Citrus and spice in the nose. On the tongue, orange both sweet and bitter and a subtle sweetness. The wheat provides mouthfeel and haze. Get a keg for the summer

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2006 Well, since this beer is now brewed by Millstream I should rate this too. I have had this beer a few more times since the original rating and I still enjoy this beer quite a bit. I usually have it with tacos, and I think it is a good match. A great beer, the best example of a great witbier.

One of the finest examples of a belgian white I have ever experiened. Bought it with tacos, probably not the best combination, but still not bad. Great citris and coriander smell, great smoky beige in color, very well balanced. Great all-around.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2004 Tap, my house. Cornelius keg in the beer fridge. Lightly hazy golden. (FWIW I expect normal servings to be cloudier, especially the bottle.) Huge citrus aroma, some coriander as well. Nice mouthfeel. Strong citrus flavor, both bitter and sweet orange peel. Sweetish finish with more citrus. I have a feeling I’m going to be drinking alot of this this summer.

Seductive spicy aroma. Great malt presence with quality spicing. Crisp throughout with a wonderful yeasty kick at the end. An extremely tasty wit.

Nothing like a mid-winter Witbier. ;) Hazy yellow-golden with a noce creamy pure white head. Huge lemon, esther, banana, and wheat aroma. The flavor is massive citrus, orange and lemon. Some spicy flavors develop, coriander. Body is pretty nice and the finish is quite nice also. Overall a plesant surprise. Thanks MilkmanDan.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Great aroma of sweet citrus goodness; tropical fruit, fresh orange, spicey and lightly yeasty. The body is also delicious under a slightly cloudy dark yellowish color. Coriander and orange peel - chemically like Hoegaarden. Light hops and some yeast. Nice Wit.

Citrus and wheaty aroma, a bit of spice. Hazy orange/yellow color. Flavor was not as citrusy but was a little yeastier. Lighter, soft body. Better than expected. Thanks hey_kevin and jgb.

Hazy dark yellow color. Aroma of wheat and lemons. Flavors of orange and lemon a touch of spice in there as well. Not a bad wit.
