Very slightly hazy amber beer. Smooth dry palate. Rich dry spicy malt with a strong finish of bubblegum and aniseedy alcohol. Warming afterglow. A bit different for a Witbier. Brandyish.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/20/10. Part of the Winter mix pack. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold. A thin white head rest atop. Fair retention; left some good lace behind. The nose is pretty basic. Some light spices, wet hay, citrus zest. Smooth feel, with a crisp bite on the finish. Some faint citrus like lemon and orange in the flavor. More bready than anticipated. This isn’t one of the more spicy Wits out there, but it hits the spot. Also, I’m not sure this is the season for this style, but no matter. A good beer, just not necessarily a good Witbier.

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2012
Tasted 12 oz bottle into nucleated pint glass. Slightly hazy golden color with fluffy, aromatic off-white foam. Soft, round spiced wheat ale flavors and aromas. Some spices were added, nicely blending with the Belgian-style yeast to suggest citrus, clove, banana, pepper. A bit watery and muted compared to classic examples, but pretty good. Crisp, dry finish.

Bricktop86 (553) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle; Pour is cloudy light golden with a modest white head; spotty lacing. Bready, fruity, and spicy on the nose; A creaminess from the head; the beer devolves a bit

tia (860) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Hazy light caramel creamy white head. Smells like bread and spice and tin. But of a buttery flavor. Light and round.

Bottle. Some dried fruits and spices on the nose. Flavor isn’t bold but good balance of wheat, citrus and spice.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - FEB 29, 2012
A winter ale is meant to have some grit to it with all the extra spices and sugars. This one does not have that, but the flavors are still pretty good.

12oz bottle -

Blue Moon tends to get all the glory with the uninformed, but this beer runs rings around Blue Moon and just showcases how great an American made wibier can be. Just oozing with a juicy orange aroma, lots of black pepper, light bread and some fruity esters. Flavor echoes the aroma with tons of fruity notes, orange juice/peel, coriander, black bepper. It’s a beautiful poor, cloudy orange body with a rich, thick 1/2" head. My wish would be to see this beer at the lips of Blue Moon drinkers and they’d see how much better this really is.
