Bottle. Pale yellow color with a big foamy, fizzy white head. Nose is lots of peppery spicyness with some lemon. taste is peppery and spicy, bites the tongue a bit, lemon mixes in and brings some light sour fun sour notes. Finished with a nice refreshing bitterness and leaves your mouth lemony.

Somewhat of a tough category for me to rate, since I find Wits the be very one sided and boring. Still, this wasnt a bad brew. A hazy gold color, with copious white fluffy head. Notes of oak and yeast are prominent. Taste is rather nice, yeasty and citrusy, that finishes with a perppery sweetness and good bubbling on the tongue.

Tmoney99 (10958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2005
Bottle. Hazy straw color with a large rocky white head that was lasting. Good complex citrus and spice. Medium body with complex texture. Light sweet malt and complex spice flavor and a long finish. Very interesting brew.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Pale straw yellow, slightly cloudy and with a decent white head fed by active carbonation. Aroma is yeasty and spiced. Clove and bananna are present. Sweet malts also make an apperance. The flavor is nice and fairly complex. Malt sweetness and a light tangyness. Bananna and clove spice is a noticable characteristic. Itís fruity and quite active on the palate with a wonderful tangy finish.

Cornfield (5512) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Very nice pour, a pale apricot body filled with vivacious bubbles that continually reinforce a dense, fizzy, cream colored head. The aroma is all orange, both the juice and the peel. Itís quite alive in the mouth, the lively carbonationation seeking to build a new head all the way through the gullet and into the stomach. The flavor is more complex, a light Wheaties taste with orange zest, caramel, coriander, and soft spices. It finishes on a mildly tart note. This is good for a warm Summer day, or a warm October day like today.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Fresh orange peel and coriander aroma. Slightly hazy yellow color, bubbly white head that dissipated quickly. Light crisp flavor, classic citrus/coriander, plus a unique vanilla-oak note. Mdium light body, crisp and refreshing, perfect summer beer. A classic witbier with an added complexity from some time on the oak. Very good stuff.

Contented smiles around the table, our favorite beer of the evening. Long lasting white head on top of a hazy yellow core surrounded by sparkling golden brew. Corriander, pepper, lemon, summer fruits and spice aromas, thereís a bit of hop in there too! Body is soft and smooth, light but not prickly carbonation. Taste is surprisingly floral with plenty of citrus, followed by a light hop and then the dry oaky finish - then the sweet summer fruits, citrus and sweets come back for an encore. Fantastic.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 re-rate 8-14-07 i always said this is my least favorite JP, but i think it was because i didnít appreciate the Brett the 1st time round! so here goes! Sweet citrus on the nose, cinamon and nutmeg, lemon zest. Pours very light blonde with a thin white head. Sour orange, lemon zest, corriander, fades away into butter-like flavors. I still preger Bam Bier, but it is better than i remembered! Pours golden blonde, with a huge fluffy white head. Heavily carbonated like Champagne. Sweet and spicy aroma, the orange peel and corriander, some vanilla, cinamon. Delicate sweet citrus at first, crisp dry finish. Feels carnonated in mouth. Not bad but not great..

Pours a dark yellow with a huge white head. Nice aroma of coriander, white pepper, and banana. Flavor of pepper, cloves, coriander and has a bunch (no pun intended) of banana flavor. As the brew warms yeast and honey flavors emerge, with some earthy woodsiness. Fizzy mouth feel, a bit heavier bodied than many whites, but it works well. A very solid white.

Beautiful label art is in no way wasted on this terrific beer. She starts with a big, fizzy head over a golden/ciderish body, infused with constant champagne-effervescence. Aroma was slightly vinegared and overall yeasty with banana, clove, green grapes and bread dough. Crisply tart with a lively presence in the mouth. Creamy & dry mouthfeel makes it almost "fluffy". Slightly sour to finish with clove. Delicate yet multi-layered and terribly intriguing.
