12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark orange color with a tall white head. The aroma has some orange peel and light notes of baking spices. The flavor is the same. The body is a bit flabby for this style with a bit too much sweetness. The spices are well balanced though. Not a favorite, but a decent brew.

JK (5665) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottled. Terrible beer. Nothing like a wit at all, some light haze, but none of the customary flavors or aromas. Some adjunct malt sweetness. Just awful.

ben4321 (5646) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/6/14

Aroma: The aroma of this one is full of wheat, lemon, and lots of spice
Appearance: The pour is a murky gold-orange, with a fizzy off-white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of spice and lemon over wheat malt flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively-to-fizzy carbonation, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: Somehow I waited until May to pull this from the fridge. I wasnít overly impressed by this beer. Thereís too much carbonation and too much spice for it to be particularly drinkable, and the flavors are only alright.

thedm (5615) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty mild malt and mild wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow herbal aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild lager mild wheat mild hops herbal and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.

EithCubes (5557) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Nose of wheat with cinnamon and tons of nutmeg, light citrus and grain. Hazy pour has the whole spectrum from yellow to orange and a creamy, dense eggshell head that laces. Oily, malty medium body with only light carbonation, a crackery resolves, and nice fruity and phenolic highlights to complement the orange and spices. Sweet with a little tang and less bitterness. The subtle cherry splashes here help nudge my impression to that of a holiday beer, but regardless this oneís just way too gaudy.

dwyerpg (5550) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Get a faint orange in the aroma but mostly itís wheat, from the first aroma to the last drop. A nice loft to it, but one is enough due to the heavy wheat body.

thornecb (5456) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours hazy pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface leaving no lacing. Cinnamon and sweet citrus aromas. Dry with sweet yeast and caramel upfront turning to cinnamon and nutmeg in the lasting earthy bitter finish.

beerguy101 (5357) - Newark, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Sampled on 4/16/2103. This Witbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy with orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. A medium to light bodied wit bier. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and sweet. Decent carbonation. The spices compliment and help offset the fruitiness and sweetness. Crisp and clean. Very drinkable. A somewhat different winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
