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 it’s very faint. Boring.

BBB63 (6447) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2011
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.

Drake (10510) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2011
12 ounce bottle from a sampler from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a murky orange color with a thin fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of citrus, floral notes, nutty notes and a spicy finish. The taste is VERY tart citrus, some apples. Overly tart. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Wasn’t expecting that.

JStax (3774) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Poured from a bottle. Appearance is a hazy copper with a white head of foam that diminishes quickly. Aroma is bubblegum with hints of orange and lemon. Taste is lemon on the front of the tongue leaving a pleasant tartness in the finish that fades to a bready yeast. Medium to light body and a quick and juicy finish. Easily quaffable beverage.

Nephilium (1497) - Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Strong aroma of orange, with a the lemon hiding underneath. Pours a hazy orange, with a big fluffy white head. A sweet and spicy flavor start this beer off, with the citrus coming out in the finish. A light beer that’s good on a hot day, but there are better witbiers out there.

steelhead3686 (254) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Note: I got this beer on tap during Brew Week in Athens, Ohio.

Pours hazy orange. Hits the nose with the aroma of roadkill cleaned up with a citrus cleaning agent. It has a medium to high sweet taste, and it feels like drinking lemonade. There are a lot of beers out there like this one but without the odor.

Bottle, Pours hazy gold w/ quickly-dissipating head, aroma of wheat and light spices, style-specific yeast characteristics are noticeably absent, sweet wheat throughout with overcarbonate bite on finish, passable at best

BelgianBeerGal (3385) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Draft at Dewey’s in Dayton. Um, okay but missed high marks. The appearance and flavor were muddled and heavy on the orange citrus. A little spice and yeast but mostly the orange dominates. Ehh.

muddy orangish yellow, cloudy with a lime though, a little fizzy, but a nice mellow citrus summer drink.
