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 itís like summertime in a glass. Bitter orange peel and fresh coriander add zest and depth to this light, refreshing beer.

Bottle from Samís Quik Stop on 09/14/2010. Rather clear golden body with a medium creamy white head. Sweet citrus and light spice aroma. Sweet orange, citrus and lemon flavor, with some light spice and a faint wheat background. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

Bottle shared by maniac. Pours a near clear pale straw with small white head. Aroma is interesting and bubblegum and a little fake, but very pleasing. Flavor is also weird spices, and orange zest, and more fake bubblegum. I rather enjoyed this. Very different than what I would have expected.

Poured from the bottle, itís a bit murky, but largely similar in appearance to the golden straw color of an American lager. Thereís no confusing this for a Bud once you take a sniff, though, with the aroma being a bit musty but lightly citrusy. The flavor is light and mild, but it really showcases the added spices and, as is common in the style, a banana-like character. Although not exactly light-bodied, goes down smooth and almost creamy.

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2010
A pretty big nose with a lot of esters - lemony sourness and pastry yeastiness. The mouthfeel was right on - rich, meaty, nicely carbonated. Citrusy sourness dominates the flavor profile. Generally a crisp finish, but with the minor flaw of going a bit pasty. Thanks to LuckyDog for bringing this back from his NC trip.

Pours bright yellow with a thin wispy white head. Visible yeast but no haze or cloudiness. Notes of orange peel, yeast, pear, white grape and wheat. Medium bodied, yeasty with lush carbonation.

12oz bottle from Chipís in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Hazy golden in color with a one-finger white head, decent lacing, and some sediment floating in the beer. Floral and wheaty aroma, with rather subdued Belgian yeast and a good citrus and spice note to it. The flavor is rather perfumy and floral, with subtle wheat malt, orange peel, and coriander. Nicely balanced. Fairly smooth on the mouthfeel with average carbonation. A solid if not inspirational witbier overall.

Surprisingly good. Medium bodied with a nice wheat malt backing. Light cinnamon spiciness. Didnít taste the orange. Well balanced. Some yeast in the finish.

Golden, lots of tiny floaties, off white ring. Floral, lavender, light spicing and lemon aroma. Taste is more light spicing, some citrus, lemon.

Bottle from Chip the Beer Guy and a pretty solid wit which nicely balances coriander, orange peel and spices. Mouthfeel had medium texture and good amount of carbonation to boot. Good summer wit.
