Definitely tastes like a white, though no Belgian. However, one of the yellowest white beers i’ve ever seen. Worth a try.

Another terribly cheesy label with cheap graphics in annoyingly weak pastel colors!! Sort of a gray/yellow, slightly hazy color. Massive carbonation. Sugary nose has hints of coriander. Thick and slightly syrupy. Almost tasteless through the middle, some orange peel and coriander at the finish. Not much going on here... nowhere near the deScriptions that I’ve read about this one.

Very macro-looking with suspended particles but some decent head. Light coriander aroma, and mixed citrus underpent by some sweet, corny malts. This wit is a bit too sweet and lacks any real complexity in the flavor and mainly comes off as perfumey. I’d like to know what the herbs they used were-maybe they should use more of them. Thin palate. A night after revisiting Hoegaarden, this seemed really weak.

Pale yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is subtle. Herbs. Coriander. Faint citrus. Mouthfeel is thin. Flavor is dull and boring. May as well be a Bud.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2005 Good american wit. Wheaty, yeasty aroma, well spiced and herbal in flavour. Refresing and mildly acidic finish. Great label.

pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aromas of mandarin oranges and green tea. Flavors are very light and. No overpowering bad flavors, yet nothing special..

Very light, but great flavor citrus with a hint of spice. If you are on the porch on a 90 degree day(like I am ) this beer is very good and refreshing.

Looks like an occluded wheat. Very nice. Excellent combination of spice, wheat, citrus and doesn’t overpower your senses in any of the three flavors. Best Witbier to date. Lost Coast beers haven’t disappointed so far. I don’t imagine that they ever do. Great beer.

On tap at 99 Bottle Santa Cruz, got to taste next to Hoegaarden on tap. Darker and cloudier than Hoegaarden, more like cloudy orange than H’s hazy yellow. Aromas of orange, lemon, and artificially flavored cereal (i.e., Trix). Moderate body with citrusy, wheaty flavors. Not a bad beer, but I’ll keep my Hoegaarden thank you very much.
