COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer style is over 400 years old, and continues to enjoy overwhelming popularity. Offering low hop bitterness, it is easy to enjoy. It pours very hazy, with a light gold color... we say it’s like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this light, refreshing beer.

Yellow pour with a fizzy white head. I get some herbal tea aroma with some spices and a bit of fruit. Flavor is a bit watery and lightly fruity with some spice. Meh.

Thanks to durhambeer for hooking me up with this bottle. I admit to being biased against the style for the most part, but this is yet another very solid offering from an NC up and comer. Very modest aroma, crisp and a bit spicey. The appearance is quite handsome, though, gold with a billowy head. Taste is understated and to style. Not bad.

How come some wits have a whiff of blueberry, even when there is no blueberry in them? Does anybody know? Anyone? Anyway, this was very tasty - a little bit of coriander, some orange, and the aforementioned blueberry. Enjoyable.

Pours a light straw color with nice carbonation and little to no head. The nose is orange zest, honey and a nice earthy wheat backdrop. Easy drinking with citrus and grain flavors. Maybe a little light but a nice summer beer. Finishes clean.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 24, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a very light hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is lemon zest, lightly spicy coriander is moderate-some orange peel, and doughy wheat. Flavor is clean at first, gets a tad bit soapy with lemon and orange, coriander is light, phenolic spice, some clove and clean wheat- mostly clean and crisp finish.

Courtesy of durhambeer. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a sustained white head. Nose reveals coriander, cloves, wheat, oranges and ginger. Tastes of wheat and some tarte lactic hints with a mild spicy element on the finish.

12 oz. bottle from Fresh Market in Greenville, NC. Light golden yellow pour with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma of tart orange and lemon, green apples, bready yeast, and coriander. Flavor of orange peel, a hint of bubblegum, and spices. Very light. A good witbier.

"Pours very hazy, with a light gold color..." Purchased at The Fresh Market, Greenville, NC Look was true to description. Tasted very light, fruity ("zest" according to bottle). Satisfying flavor.
