riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2010

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange body with a white head. Wheat y notes, coriander, lemon grass notes, some candied sweet esters with a banana pear finish. Decent enough.

egajdzis (5409) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Poured a hazy golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coriander, lavender, citrus fruits, toast, and earthy yeast. Taste of citrus fruits, orange peel, coriander, vanilla, honey, and dry alcohol at the finish.

nimbleprop (5212) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2010
22oz bottle pours a hazy, but mostly translucent orange gold with a little, cloudy white head. Aroma is all spices, coriander, sage, sugary, perfume, flowers, a little paint thinner. The flavor is overly sugary, flowers, sage leaves, lavender, perfume, oranges. Finish is thick, a little too sweet. A big miss.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2010
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy yellow-orange with a huge yellow-white head that lingered. The aroma was very strong and distinct coriander and lemon. The best coriander note I have ever found in a wit. The flavor was strong orange and coriander with undertones of must, lemon, pepper and yeastiness. Medium length finish. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.

EithCubes (5090) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Bomber from a trip to NY in the summer. Glorious wit nose, sweet and spicy with loads of lemon essence. Clear golden-orange body ringing through with a beautiful lacing rocky white head. Taste is juicy and rounded, not one-dimensional as most wits are, with nicely integrated and relaxed alcohol. Aftertaste is short and hints at lemon cleaning fluid, but long-term resolution brings about notes of residual fresh-baked bread. Medium-full body, very flavorful, soft and oily with an occasional angular tang. Truly synergistic while displaying deft, almost casual balance. Time may have helped to mellow this beast, which may be drinking at its peak right now - nothing about this is overbearing, not the coriander or orange and lemon base. I’m not rating according to style, but it’s hard not to remark how textbook this is, among the best I’ve ever had, and proof that this style can be ’imperialized’ without losing its soul.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2009
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of lime, light lemon, fruit, light wheat, and lemongrass. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, white head that diminished quickly but lasted around the edges. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of lemon, lime, citrus, lemongrass, light orange zest, and light wheat. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Lime, lemon, and light wheat finish is dry.

thornecb (4545) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention. Lemon and wheat aromas. Lemon joy upfront turning to marshmallow and wheat in the alcohol soaked summer fruit finish.

jkwood04 (4175) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 23, 2010
22oz bottle in a Weizen glass. Pours opaque orangish amber with a thin white head. Aroma of spice and doughy yeast. Very spicy flavor, and a sweet finish that reminds me a little of Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat. Light on the palate. Not bad, but for a wit, I’d rather have Hoegaarden any day.

emacgee (4147) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Thanks hophead75 for bonusing this a while back. Pours a bright lemon yellow with a mild haze and a thin fizzy white head. Nose is very interesting, lemon zest, sweet spice, very mild isoamyl acetate and wheat, very pungent citrus character with a mid floral aspect. Flavor is very unique as well, floral and lemony, mild wheat and banana, mild sweetness. Palate is very light in body and most of the mouthfeel comes from the lively carbonation. I really enjoyed this one but understand how it could be aversive.
