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 (1166) - 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.

Lots of citrus and carbonation in this minor wheat colored ale. Starts watery, blooms into a big sour citrus, falls back to water. Bloating, - I feel a need to burp.

My bottle says wit ale but there is very little, if any, rude ale in this brew. From the twist off cap start to the finsh a very good experience. Nice tubby bottle pours without an issue, very nice. Smell is a little tart. Taste is unique and nice, lovely actually. Sour wild beer ecfects that are just so pleasant. Really nice CO2 and a certainty that this is wit beer, though not really its color. Very nice tartness that comes across almost like a sour soda, yeah! Glad I got to try this one! Would not hesitate to purchase again.

Purchased from Remke/Biggs at Glenway Crossing in Cincinnati, Ohio - Alright, this one pours an decidedly hazey golden brew with a thin, fast fasing white head of foam and a very light yeasty aroma. Tastewise, this one has the raisany taste of a lesser Belgian wit beer, but its still a fine stab at the style.

Bottle at the Andersons. Pours a very light clear yellow. It leaves a lot of lacing. Not much on the nose. A bit of orange peel on the tongue but its very faint. Boring.

Bottle and served in my Hoegaarden shaker: Very cloudy near amber hue (a tad dark for the genre IMO) with a small fizzy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of orange and lemon zest, coriander, flowery and doughy malts, wheat husks, light pepper and even some white wine. Very acidic on the nose and follows through to the palate. This is one twangy fruity and acidic brew. Perhaps too much for the wheat and pale malts sort of get pushed to the side and even the spices are a bit hard to find. The mouth feel is refreshing and sprite and a mouth watering texture. Overall it is not bad but seems to have just a bit too much influence from the orange and lemon additions.
