Aroma is orange zest and wheat bread. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a sour/tart finish. The appearance was definitely off for a witbier; it was drinkable just didnít all around seem like a witbier.

Chudwick (1972) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JUL 25, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clear golden orange with quickly diminishing white head and decent lacing. Nose is that of a pilsener and orange. Flavor adds caramel, spiciness, cardboard and wheat. taste is sweet with a tad bit of bitterness. Aftertaste is metallic. Medium body. Met expectations. Iím glad to see that Rivertown is being more consistent by providing less "gone bad" beers.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours rich orange that fades to deep golden top and bottom with small white head. Good lacing, well carbonated, and citrus aroma. Taste is orange, lemon, and some coriander. Good rich flavor.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange with quite a lot of sediment, darker beer than i expected, thick but quickly fading white head. Aroma is estery, sweet banana and doughy notes, definitely wheaty and a bit of citrus. Flavor starts sweet and bready, quickly picking up banana esters, hints of spice and citrus before a bit of a grainy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Its refreshing though for the style its not dry enough, too heavy on banana sweetness

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle from a sixer purchased at Earth Fare Polaris. Hazy and chunky orange in color with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet malt, coriander, orange, banana and creamy wheat. Banana and creamy wheat flavor with some herbs and citrus, but not enough for my liking. I like the orange and coriander to drown out a lot of the banana, but this one is definitely banana forward.

Onslow (1131) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cloudy orange brew with a fizzy head that settles down to a persistent small head. Aroma of corriander, orange, spice, wheat, - light an aromatic, very reshing and clean. Taste is a little sweet at the start, then orange, spice, corriander, lemon zest, tart fruit, a bit of wild yeasitness and bitter wheat.. Very complex a well crafted. Maybe a bit restrained, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Pours a hazy dark yellow. Aroma is mild citrus. Taste is slightly citrus; orange and a little lemon. Taste did get a little stronger as I drank it. Not bad if you like light-colored/tasting beer.

Bottle. Sour lemon/orange and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy amber color with nice big head. Sweet-tart lemon and light wheat malt flavor. Very light body. Okay but not much to it.
