Not sure what this is supposed to be a double of but certainly not flavour. Pours blonde with ok head. Initial smell of coriander and citrus peel. Average carbonation. Light palate, but aroma has some sweetened malt. Finishes with light sweetness. Bottle from Finger Lakes Beverage Center.

RABinCO (1157) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy yellow, slight white head. Big white bread and spice aroma with a bit of citrus. Taste is spice and citrus, a bit yeasty, though a tab on the watery and buttery side.

Taster on tap at HopCat in East Lansing. Almost entirely hazy pale yellow color. Thin white head, leaves good lace. Nice spicy zesty orange peel aroma, with great belgian yeast character. Medium-plus body. Smooth, more crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate spicy taste, light bitter. Good zest. Good witbier, nice full flavor to it. I enjoyed this one.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy and cloudy bright golden amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big lemon zest, pear, orange zest, coriander, banana, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of yeast and spicing notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, pear, apple, orange zest, coriander, clove, banana, pepper, wheat, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus zest, coriander, banana, clove, wheat, pepper, bread, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome balance, robustness, and complexity of yeast ester and spice flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with nearly zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic witbier style! All around awesome complexity, balance, and robustness of yeast and spice flavors; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

From a bottle. Sweet aroma with notes of grain, stinging vanilla and citrus and some cookie aroma too. Pale color, golden and straw. Medium head retention. Honey like sweetness with more citrus flavor, minimal bitterness and perfect sourness. Body is medium with medium carbonation. A little alcohol flavor. Overall a good beer, I’d like it a with a bit abv for balance.

NordicV (1095) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2013
Gyllengul, lätt beslöjad öl med lätt vitt skum. Doft av vete, jäst, kryddig örtighet. Detta och lätta toner av citrus i smaken. Något tunn i arom och smak.

Tonkun (774) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Hazy white orange pour with minimal head. Spice, herb, grass, orange. Strong carbonation. Lighter than expected body. Good on a hot day but more body would be better given the carbonation. But good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yeasty esters, some wheat malt notes, a tart, citrus note. very effervescent, with a big foamy white head. pours out a slightly hazy lemon straw color. refreshing tangy quality. medium mouthfeel. a little spicy, but definitely not over done. the orange peel and coriander definitely compliment the malt, and don’t overwhelm the beer. great summer beer.

small hops flavor moves into slight creamy lemon flavor. Decent beer, which it was a bit more creamy, and a bit less hoppy.
