VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - AUG 31, 2013
Presentation: 330mL brown bottle, served in an oversized wine glass. Appearance: Two finger, fluffy white head, with a cloudy, deep gold color. Smell: The stronger aromas are of malt, banana, coriander and a faint anise scent in the background. Taste: Very balanced sweet and sour taste. The more prominent notes are of malt, yeast, anise and clove. Mouthfeel: It’s very smooth and creamy. It goes down easily and has medium carbonation. Overall: Very well balanced, a great beer all around. It’s a very filling and satisfying. so not something you want to have two or three of. It’s a beer to sit down with for a while, enjoy the nuances in it and have a good time.

Spicy aroma with notes of orange. Hazy gold colour. Bready flavour with notes of coriander, ginger, and citrus. Body is somewhere between light and medium with mild carbonation. Quite an enjoyable beer.

DomD (112) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Poured from bottle. Aroma of citrus zest. Pours a cloudy pale with white head. Has a light sour taste. Medium to full bodied, creamy texture, with a slightly tart finish. A rather complex beer, a lot less sour than I expected with much more body than any other witbier I have tasted.

Joel (111) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Pours pale and hazy. Dry, bready and finishes with a slight bitterness. Citrus notes. Very clean. Overall this is good, but probably not something I’ll reach for very often.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Best by date of 07.08.15. Poured into a tulip on 05.23.14. A: 2 1/2 finger head. Very cloudy yellow/orange with yeast. S: Wheat. Also citrus (orange) and cloves. T: Egg, wheat, orange are dominant. Cloves are subtle. M: Very creamy with some carbonation at the end. Chewy. O: This was interesting to try after trying American wits. It was not crisp and had a much heavier mouthfeel in general. It was good, but not a favorite.

MatthijsE (885) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours a cloudy golden-straw colour with a fluffy, lasting, white head. Nose of coriander, muted orange, cloves and lemony citrus. Slightly spicy medium-sweet flavour, and nice and smooth on the palate.

rondphoto (2366) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 11, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Hazy pale amber with a thin white head cover, strips of lace. Taste is wheat and malt with light yeast that moves toward light bittering before adding citrus and coriander in a short finish. A light, cleansing, delectable brew.

shdougan (48) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 10, 2015
Pours a very light, pale, hazy yellow with a large foamy white head. Strong aromas of Belgian yeast, coriander, orange peel, lavender, some hay, and a bit of white wine. Has a fairly light body with a soft carbonation, very light and refreshing. Taste has a medium sweetness with a nice citrusy bitterness along with that familiar Belgian flavor.
