Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Light coriander and cracker flavors dominate; that is to say not very flavorful. Some citrus (I suppose it would be orange but it didnít taste particularly orangey) and yeast in the aftertaste. Nice crispness. Body is light.

Bierdimpfe (338) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2016
Cloudy dark straw color with storming activity. Slightly foamy white 1 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with average legs. Flavors of sweet grains, citrus, lime, noble hops, faint floral feel and corn. A little sweet yet astringent bitter. Thick full body with extra prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish from a highly bitter grassy spicy feel that is unusual for a witbier. Weird chalky citrus mouthfeel. Low freshness and highly acidic. Overall poor quality stuff. The lemon flavor is not pleasant and too harsh. Overly dry and too bold. Feels adjunct. Itís almost disgusting and undrinkable.

Bought a sampler so the wife could try some pumpkin and apple beer. Drinkable, cracker, bready, and plain. An orange or lemon would make it pop.

superspak (4672) - Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2016
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/20/2015. Pours hazy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with balanced fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and moderate pale malt notes; with poor strength. Taste of lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, clove, light banana, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, clove, wheat, cracker, white bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good; a bit thin for the style. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a decent witbier. All around solid complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is orange and wheat. Itís a little sweet. Itís refreshing enough on a hot day.

This is a great summertime beer. It does have that citrus taste especially with the orange slice which does seem to enhance the beer. I think that we all agree that it is not a great beer but a very drinkable light, refreshing beer on a hot day during the summer.

Redelijk geurloos. De kleur blond (Niet zoals de meeste witbieren). De smaak valt ook goed mee.

At Ricks 50th bday party... A rockin hood time... Would like to have an orange slice on the side. Not as good as a German Weiss... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I just donít like the witbier style. This one didnít have as yeasty a taste as the German ones I had so I didnít find it offensive.
