COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American version of the Belgian style. This unfiltered beer has a striking translucent, golden color with white clouds. Seemingly a contradiction in terms, it has a full body mouth-feel but is surprisingly light to drink. Topped with a hint of citrus, provided by Coriander and a secret blend of Humbolt herbs, this beer is slightly sweet and a delight to drink in any season.

Fucking Fantastic. It’s refreshing as hell. You can drink 430 of these in a night. They serve it with an orange slice at a lot of bars, which is kind of a bummer, it tastes better with more sour citrus fruits, or without fruit at all. totally recommended.

12 oz. bottle from TheHOFF43- thanks again, Hoff! Pours a pale, clear gold with a small white head. Looks too clear for the style. Smells like malt liquor. All sugar and corn, with no witbier character. Notes of paper, pepper, lemon and straw in the background. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, dry, flat mouthfeel. This is so far off style it’s unforgivable. Gross.

From notes. Pours hazy yellow with nice white head. Smell of wheat. Taste of wheat with a slight spice note

Translucent gold, quick fading white head. Aroma is yeasty banana and citrus. Taste is bread and candied banana, slight lemon. Basic

Bottle. Watery white with candied banana. Not a lot going on here unfortunately. Probably a little old.

Bottle cheers to Mike. This isn’t doing it for me at all. It’s like a watery wheat beer with candied banana. No good

popephred (261) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Poured this beer into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a clear yellow body topped by a head of white foam which diminished fully. The aroma was light and wheaty in character. The body was watery, and the palate was slightly sweet with moderate carbonation. This was a fair light-bodied beer, great for a hot summer’s day, though not for the the current temperature of -4F.

On tap at Jimmy Buffet’s At BeachComber Waikiki 271214. Not the greatest witbier I have had. Okay with hazy appearance, thin body and fruit flavour.

355 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Clear golden honey colour with thin trace of yeast sediments; One finger head and white foam which lasts for 1 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Fragrant aroma of malt, with fresh citrus zest, orange peels, coriander, light floral, strong yeast, bread, lemon and strong grass; Close to medium sweet taste of light malt, with light wheaty tartness, light floral, coriander, light orange peels, light molasses notes, light yeast, light bread, lemon, and fairly light bitter grassy hops; Mid to light body. Dry and slick palate; Mouth Feel is solid malty base, wheat elements and tartness is relatively low. Good light floral hoppyness throughout with coriander, good light citrus zest and moderate yeastiness. Pretty good and easy… Hoppiness is strong citrus zest, light floral, lemon and strong grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is very light, typical for the style, for a wheaty, very low-fi finish; Quite dry after taste. Refreshing and zesty to mouth.

Commenst: More than a on-standard Belgian White, this one has fragrant lemony zest and citrus peels for nose and taste all the way, while keeping a good light taste malty without being too wheaty. It seems to kept a low profile, but the hops and fruitness shine when its matters. Nice!

A good smooth drinking beer. Lots of citrus overtones with just a touch of bitterness. Nice beer.

"i’d take this one before some of the much more expensive wits...it stacks up well enough in all 5 catergories. A refreshing summer ale, nothing less, nothing more."
