Ernest (7319) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (mold, cobwebs), with light notes of plastic, lemon zest, pepper, and coriander. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Kinda sad. The aroma is passable but has some plastic problems and just isn’t that interesting. Bland in the mouth experience, and not much to look at. A depressing beer.

valpoaj (729) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2008
From bottle. Pours a very clear, highly carbonated golden color with a thin white head (appears from other reviews that the carbonation varies greatly) Aroma is, well, odd...decent level of wheat, a hint of honey, a hint of skunk, very light on the spice, and almost want to say corn...very pale lagerish and disappointing considering the source. Flavor is very similar...decent level of wheat, some corn like flavors, and a fairly heavy dose of bubblegum. I understand the desire to make a variation on the traditional Wit style, but this just isn’t working. Highly carbonated, yet thin and watery at the same time, and a very low level of drinkability when compared to other Witbiers. I’m a big fan of Lost Abbey as a brewery...but this was a huge disappointment. I can’t help but think this is getting a few ticks higher due to the brewery name, so go ahead and bash my rating, but this was simply not a good beer.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Bottle, from Capone’s (Norristown, PA). Pours golden yellow, topped with a small white head. Aroma of wheat esters, lemon, honey, and some mild spice. Flavor is primarily wheat, with citrus and spice, honey, malt, and mild hops. Good white.

GMCC2181 (1591) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle shared by swolf3. I knew soon as I popped the top off it would be a weak beer..No carbonation build up at all. Typical cloudy yellow color, not much head. Aroma of spices. Taste was a weak witbier. Wheat, spices, sweet malt and a banana. Thin/watery for a witbier, just wasnt a fan of it to be honest. Not bad just not good. Thanks wolf for sharing!

steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 17, 2008
smooth and lightly creamy; fair carbonation; hazy gold-yellow body with foamy white head; buttery wheat bread, honey, and somewhat fruity with subtle spices (might be nutmeg in there); this is really put together to me; i really liked this.

ABUSEDGOAT (2584) - California, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Hazy golden color, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is wheaty, lightly tart, some bread and sweet pale malts, lightly spiced. Lighter bodied, fairly sweet with a little bit of banana. Decent but unexciting.

TAR (2671) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Yellow gold. Vigorous pour yields a quickly diminishing white head. Subdued aroma of bubblegum, white pepper, lemon glaze, coriander, unripe banana, lime peels, and lightly toasted grains. Distant scent of glue/paint. Softly carbonated and somewhat fuzzy on the palate. Initially dryly malty with a dusting of hay, crackers, and a light tang reminiscent of fermented wheat. Tight lime peel bitterness underscores the dainty grain-derived sweetness as well as the denser underlying peach- and melon-like fruitiness and glimpse of unsweetened lemon cake. Herbal bitterness and crisp malts try to cleanse the palate, though the beer takes on a medicinal character due to the fusion of faint yet perceptible slippery fruitiness and alcohol. Faint hint of plastic is detectable. Hops reveal some late flowery qualities, though the finish is primarily dominated by spicy warmth, banana, and lesser notes of lightly toasted grain. Pretty flabby, overly spicy and, as with many Lost Abbey beers, nothing interesting imparted by the yeast. Very ordinary and far from a standout rendition.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle. Somewhat grainy aroma with some coriander spices. Hazy yellow body with white head. Soapy fruity zesty flavor along with dry bittering grains. Easy on the palate. Mild dryness on the palate. For witbeirs they are either good or bad. This one alright in the middle.

thornecb (5497) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Pours gold into a tumbler. White head recedes to nothing. Clove aromas. Sweet malts, wheat and marshmallows upfront with a dry, clovey corriander and grapefruit finish.
