"looks like your average wit, cloudy off-white/yellow. thin head. the aroma is pleasantly fresh - spice, coriander, citrus and wheat. after that the feel and flavor fall a bit short, but are ok."

Reviewed from notes. Consumed during my AZ trip. The appearance was mostly a clear somewhat hazy golden orange color. light one finger head dies to basically notying over top of the beer. There is a light carbonation that is seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell had a sweet sticky orange yeastiness with light Belgian spices backing it up. The taste was a spicy sweet all the way through, light yeasty yet somewhat spicy aftertaste with a quick dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light on the body, somewhat sessionable with a carbonation that is somewhat sharp but ends up maintaining a decent yeasty coating of the mouth and tongue. Overall, this is not a bad take on a witbier by an American brewer. I would have this again and could see some grilled halibut steaks with this.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014
Location: 12 oz can by the pool, Marriott Tempe at the Buttes, 3/9/14

Aroma: Aroma of orange/spice, pretty fruity, coriander, and some wheat notes
Appearance: It pours a murky orange color, a little sediment, almost no head, and minimal lace
Flavor: The flavor is sweet and fruity, lots of orange up-front, some later yeast and spice
Palate: Pretty darn drinkable, wouldnít have guessed this at 8.5%, soft! smooth! and clean feel
Overall Impression: This one kind of grew on me. At first I thought it was too sweet, but thereís enough spice to balance it out, and it works nicely as an outdoor drinking beer. Also, that alcohol is super well hidden. Drinks like a 4-5% beer. If you want some sweet and fruity and cold by a pool you could do a lot worse.

Bottle from BevMo, Phoenix. Malty aroma with hints of citrus, pepper and coriander. Pours opaque golden colored with very little head and no lacing. Very malty up front, but not quite as good as a Belgian. Nice finish with a lot of pepper and some coriander. Good beer, but I'm not sure I can call it a Belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patricks110 (1676) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
An easy to drink wit with a load of orange peel and hits of coriander and black pepper. The flavour is subdued a bit with smoothened esters and light toasted wheat malts. Overall, a good but bland wit.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 18, 2013
12floz/355ml bottle into a weizen glass; served cold. Aroma: Quite orange-y. Not a whole lot of spice, but itís pleasant. Appearance: Near opaque, hazy, orange-yellow body. Clean, white, foamy head that dissipates pretty slowly. I had some visible sediment in my beer, which Iím not sure how I feel about, but it mostly dissolved, I think. Nice lacing, though! Taste: Incredibly mild. Orange, yes, a little. Spices, barely. Exceptionally mild, though. Itís cool that you donít taste the relatively high alcohol content, but itís a weakly flavored beer. If I just got an off-bottle, Iíll re-do this review. Palate: Exceptionally soft, almost non-existent carbonation. Finish is short and ends on subtle fresh orange flavor. Overall: I was expecting more, sadly. Itís a very quiet beer, and I was expecting a loud, head-on collision with coriander and oranges. Regardless of what I expected, itís a subtle, gentle beer that really masks the ABV well. I like it, but itís nowhere near my favorite wit.

Livendadream (123) - New Mexico, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pours hazy yellow color with small head that fades fast. Faint orange smell a little grassy. Tastes citrus and sweet with a spiciness i canít describe( not coriander) maybe pepper?Body is a little thin with a twang on the tongue. Sticky on the back of the throat. No noticeable hop flavor. Nothing impressive here.

I am an avid belgian white ale drinker. I have tried a good amount of different belgian whites and this one is by far my favorite. The kicker to this beer is that it is 8.5% alcohol which is higher than most beers out there. This beer is comparable to Shocktop and Blue Moon, but I like Mudsharkís Fullmoon better. I am unsure why many people rated this low, possibly because they are not familiar with belgian white ales and the combination of wheat, orange peel, and coriander.
