bigda83 (487) - Jamestown, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Sample from bottle. Poured a slight hazed yellow with small foamy white head. Aromas of coriander, lemon, and hay. Flavor followed the nose. Light body, thin texture, pretty lively carbonation. Easy finish. Nothing great.

cheap (4566) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 On tap at bowsers. Very good from the start, I was impressed by its civility. Nice white beer. Some fruit like orange candy aroma. First taste is a beer with lots of orange in there, surprised its not mentioned in the description. Good cutting co2. Goes down really easy. Quite pleasant. I always get well behaved beers from shiner and this is no exception.

drsordr (1533) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle in San Antonio. Nose some banana, light Belgian ester, but a hint of underlying vegetal funk. Taste light spice, clove, not much fruit flavor. Don’t get much of the funk from the nose in the taste. Hint of orange in the finish.

Oakes (13536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2015
Sweetish coriander soup. Light spicy finish and a hit of sugary malt. Not bad, actually, for a macro wit, but nothing to make it stand out either.

superspak (3394) - Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, light banana, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a very nice witbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

drjay44 (2962) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium, mousy, well retained white head, with minimal lacing, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body......nose is light lemon, orange from the additives, light wheat, very slight herbal hop notes, balanced......taste is slightly sweet, with lemon, coriander, orange, light wheat cereal notes, becoming dry, with light hops bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, carbonation makes a creamy mouthful. This is a quite good rendition of this style. It is quite light, refreshing, and easy to drink. As is true of Witbier, it is not particularly complex beyond the base additives. I would like a slightly bigger body. BJCP 9/3/15/5/7

BVery (7952) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle. Slightly hazy light gold / yellow pour with a white head. Huge coriander bomb on the aroma. Thinner, syrupy sweet on the tongue. This isn’t bad, but it’s not too good, either.
