mansquito (3550) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2012
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($2): Pour is lightly golden with small white head. Aroma wheat, candy, and citrus. Taste is rather insubstantial. It ainít really watery, but it is pretty light and sweet. There are some nice wheaty notes, but they are few and far in between. "Tis a forgettable witbier.

Dfonorow (1600) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2011
Pours very cloudy yellow with a normal sized white head. Complex nose with notes of orange peel, banana, lemons, and sweet bread. Taste is of light citrus with hints of spice in the finish. Pretty thin and light bodied.

Cybercat (3489) - Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Pours a pale straw yellow with a thin white head that disappears rather quickly. Fortunately, the appearance is this beerís only weak spot. The aroma is strong, crisp and malty with fruity and spicy hints. Flavor is malty and crisp with hints of fruit, citrus and cloves. Texture is tingly and a little rough.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Location: Draft at d.b.a, 5/21/10

Aroma: Fairly simple, typical orange, spice, and wheat beer
Appearance: Hazy orangish color beer with a decent white head
Flavor: Taste is medium sweet, some spice, and citrus flavors
Palate: The body is fizzy, fairly light, nothing too exciting
Overall Impression: I didnít really enjoy this one all that much. A fairly typical example of the style, but also on the boring side. I wouldnít rush out for this one again.

pilgrimoutlaw (796) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
I was pretty underwhelmed by this one. Tastes like Coors lite. Not that thereís anything wrong with that. Itís just that Coors lite costs about 80% less. Light pale blond, very subtle flavors of coriander and citrus.

This one was a gem. Very hard to come by in the states because it isnít being bottled. Tried it at the Atlantic City Beer Festival this year and also got it in a growler from Bierkraft in Brooklyn. Pours a super cloudy yellow / white and has the softest / creamiest taste of any white beer Iíve sampled. One of my favorite beers of all time for pure pleasurable drinkability.
