KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a medium golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fluffy head that quickly diminished, down to a very thin film and not so good runny lacing. The aroma was of a light straw malt and a doughy horse blanket yeast with notes of citrus (orange), coriander, nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste was lightly sweet and rather yeasty with a pronounced citrus note throughout, with the finish having a slight spiciness at the very end. The flavor lingered for an average time following the swallow, with a mild spicy yeast taste fading slowly from the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just above light in body with a mildly dry texture and a medium carbonation. Overall a decent enough brew that did posses a good drinkability, but was really nothing overly special as Witbierís go...

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.0 A: Lightly hazed yellow orange color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a touch below average and just a wisp or two of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Quite a pleasant aroma. Big coriander with peppery and slightly bready yeast. Just enough sweetness from a neutral maltiness. Simple, but nice. 3.75 T: It tastes even better than it smells. Coriander and peppery spiciness. Sweet neutral malts. Hints of cinnamon and wintry spices. 4.0 M: Medium body. Pleasantly creamy with good moderate carbonation. Supremely smooth. 5.0 D: Supremely drinkable. I could put this down all night. ★ 638 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 11, 2014

Cybercat (5047) - Georgia, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Pours clear, bubbly golden with a thick but not long-lasting snow-white head. Aroma presents yeasty and fruity notes, not strong but welcoming. Flavor is stronger and more complex, wheaty with hints of spice, citrus and - salt? Mouthfeel features typical body and fizz. Drink it at a party or while watching one of those timeless holiday specials for the umpteenth time.

High carbonation with overwhelming spices. The spice to hop ratio is off leaving this a weird brew.

rondphoto (3966) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 1, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jims / Eastgate OH --- Hazy medium orange amber color, white head cover, swirls of lace. Aroma of malt and light nutmeg. Taste is nothing more than a lighter colored version of a pumpkin ale. Spice is there, along with more sense of pumpkin than malt. A little watery; not satisfying.
