An artisan white ale brewed in the classic biere blanche tradition. Spiced with orange peel and coriander, you'll find it refreshingly tart, with a wonderful dry finish.

guzzler67 (1597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 18, 2006
Slightly hazy, pale gold appearance. Small white, fast fading head left little lacing. Yeasty aroma; lemon much more apparent as it warmed to cellar temperatures. Can’t dismiss the orange peel. Medium-to-light body with lots of carbonation. Tart, dry, citrusy, spicy taste. Dry, peppery, short lived finish.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Hazy and bright yellow with a big loose white head. Zesty, yeasty citrus and corriander aroma. Light and carbonated with a pronounced bitterness that lingers on the tongue. I swear this is from the orange peel though others tell me that bitter orange adds no perceptable bitterness. It has a delicate lemon/orange and corriander flavor. Drier, sharper and more effervescent than many Witbiers. Better than most.

DJMonarch (9166) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 29/09/2005 Golden coloured with a hazy appearance. Some alcohol present. Crisp on the palate. Slightly fruity banana flavour. Hint of dryness in the finish.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2006
Pours a clear golden, with an extremely frothy head the entire time. I was holding on to this for a while thinking it may have been the best beligian white my favorite style beer I have ever had with all the hype on the brewer, but it definitely wasn’t even close. Dominant flavors are coriander and orange peel the whole time, along with a slight lemony aftertaste and maybe a ever so slight hint of banana, other than that it leaves a very poor taste in your mouth that does not taste good at all, I don’t hate it but know I will never buy this again at $7, very dissapointing.

pivo (2646) - GERMANY - MAR 12, 2006
Perfumy, lavender nose. Hazy pale orange color, fluffy head. Real citrusy, lemon and orange. Sweet in the middle. Puckering, lactic yeasty end. Light spice. Leaves sweet dollop on the lips like a fruit juice. Medium body, creamy texture. Unusual and interesting.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 Bottle: Cloudy deep yellow with a large small-bubbled white head, orange peel and spices in the aroma with a touch of lemon, starts and ends lightly sweet with some sourness, light mouthfeel with prickly carbonation.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Cloudy, golden body with a medium sized white head that fades to a cover. Big juicy orange aroma with notes of spice, pineapple and musty notes. Refreshingly tart, orange, pineapple, corriander and cobwebs. Mouthfeel is light and lively. Dry finish. Not really true to style, but JP brews to their own style. The use of Brett, in my opinion, is much more interesting than the usual banana and clove of the Hoegaarden yeast. Also the spicing of this beer is just right, too many brewers over spicing their Wits. This was nice and refreshing. Another winner from JP.

Cobra (1100) - - MAR 8, 2006
750 ml champagne style bottle. Crowned, but not corked. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a pale golden yellow color, with an effervescent meringue head. The head settled back to a thin lacing on top of the beer. Aromas are of coriander, citrus peel, mostly lemon. Includes a tart Granny Smith apple character as well. Flavors are of Granny Smith apples right off the bat. Some Brettanomyces is also present, probably from the barrel aging. Lively on the tongue, spritely. Thin body & mouthfeel. Crisp flavors fade quickly off the tongue. A decent Witbier from JP.

Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 6, 2006
An unclear yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with ginger being quite strong. The flavor is very carbonated with notes of spices - again strong notes of ginger, but also lesser notes of coriander, leading to a dry end. Less carbonation would do this beer good.

Goblincat (398) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Pours a cloudy light dirty yellow, with white head. Citrus, grape, and light spice nose. The taste is a spicy light citrus. Grapefruit comes through as does the coriander. Very light, bubbly mouthfeel.
