MattH (737) - California, USA - APR 17, 2016
Can. Pale straw colored pour with a white head that recedes quickly. Aroma of bubble gum, banana,clove, coriander. Typical witbier aroma. Flavor is slightly vegetal, but also contains the typical witbier banana, coriander flavor. Slightly watery. I hold Hoegaarden as the standard for the style, and though this beer is good, I feel that it is not as good as Hoegaarden.

On tap, pours cear pale gold with small head. Nose and palate have spice, light yeast, grain, lemon, hay, citrus, low bitter, pepper, a bit watery, light bready. Not bad but drinks like watered down Allagash White. Fair.

ryanhunter_4 (196) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2016
12 oz bottle poured at the San Diego zoo. Pours cloudy yellow with no head. Smells like grass and citrus. Tastes like grapefruit lemon and hops. Tastes like a typical white or hefe. Decent but nothing special.

DuffMan (8822) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2016
Can. Hazy orangish-gold, average white head. Lots of coriander and orange peel here, wheaty body. Nice enough, nails the style.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Silver can at The New Penguin courtesy of Cousin Matt. Pale and opaque with a fast-dying head. Slightly meaty big bag of perfumed coriander aroma. Inoffensive slightly peppery Hoegaarden clone all coriander and pot pourri orange plus a trace of bitterness to finish. Swedish spiced biscuits and clove in the blender. Simplistic but slipping down just fine.

tightslice (752) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 31, 2016
On tap at Gott’s in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma is light fruit, citrus, mild floral, some spicy yeasts. Taste is the same...a mild and refreshing witbier (which is what I personally want from a witbier).

ciocanelu (847) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 15, 2016
Hazy bright yellow color with a small white head that fizzes away quickly. Aroma has the traditional wheat, banana and curacao notes. Taste follows with orange, wheat and a bit of lemony tartness. Light, fizzy mouthfeel. Overall it’s a well made, traditional witbier.

mR_fr0g (7846) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2015
On rap at Bartlett Hall. Clear pale yellow coloured pour with a fading white head. Aroma is zesty citrus lemon and kaffir lime, slight floral and coriander seed, light grains. Flavour is composed of pale grains, citrus, lime zest, slight hint of tart. A little sweetness. Palate is light bodied, frothy highish carbonation, slightly thin, drying finish. Bog standard wit.

rosenbergh (9685) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2015
12 oz bottle. Thanks to Timo A! Cloudy golden color with a tiny white head. Mild yeast, mild orange, some spices and mild wheat in the aroma. The flavor is mild bitterness, mild yeast, mild spices and citrus. Rather fresh and drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
