Hazy golden yellow with a white head. Crisp with a bit of citrus tartness. Smooth, woody, yeasty. Fairly dry in the end.

tectactoe (1725) - Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Tap: Hazed, unfiltered golden-yellow body with a chunky, soapy, foamy white cap that recedes hesitantly down the glass. Aroma is more witbier than IPA. Clove, coriander, orange peel, gummy Belgian yeast, citrus zest, mild peppery spice, perhaps even a touch of mint? Taste is even spicier, with more clove & white pepper. Coriander steps it up a notch, too, giving off a big herbal orange tea vibe. Gummy, hints of citrus spritz, wheat, & spicy, bready Belgian yeast leading into the aftertaste. Decent brew.

Frank (2832) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Well, this was not quite what I expected. It is a murky orange color w/ a head of fine white bubbles and great sheets of lace. Its nose is fairly mild. I am getting a touch of lavender and some citrus, perhaps from coriander. Once tasted, a surprising spicy character comes out, something along the line of apples and cinnamon. I am not sure the origin of these flavors--or if they are even intentional--but it is actually quite pleasant and works quite well w/ the light, creamy texture. It finishes dry w/ a lingering spiciness. Honestly, this is pretty much a beer w/o style as I drank it, I guess just a "Belgian ale" which doesn’t really mean anything. I was expecting a typical white IPA and this is way more spicy. Still, the surprise is pleasant and that is always a good thing.

PorterPounder (5485) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a light but persistent white head. Aroma has some clove and bubble gum accents. Flavor is closer to hefe than a wit. Pick up some banana accents, a brief hint of cloves, some saffron-like spiciness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. let’s just call this one decent.

drpimento (2221) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Interesting white style ale. Has a very good appearance long-lasting head, lots of lace. Hazy light amber color. Aroma is yeast lemon malt. Flavors like aroma with some spice but the yeast dominates. Power of the yeast is a little too strong here for this beer.

Draft at Hopcat in Grand Rapids. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma and taste are spices, citrus, and some sweet malts to balance the hops.

stevendoel (31) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2014
An aroma of Hops and Citrus. The body is on the dark side for a white. The taste starts out with a slight bit of malt followed by hops yet finishes with notes of citrus and yeast. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Pours golden in color with little head from tap. Fruit essence on first sip finishing pretty bitter and tart. Less hoppy than many pale ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz from total wine. Heavy on the spice and a bit of orange coming through later in the sip. Finish is a little sweet but not overly so. A bigger body that would make this work more in the fall but still a nice fruity refreshing drink.
