Hazy yellow pour. Watery mouthfeel, some coriander, and wet grains, not great at all.

MadRobin (2070) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap 5 oz. sampler at Sweetwater Tavern in Centreville, VA. Lightly hazy, very light pastel yellow with a small off-white head and fair lacing. Mild Aroma of coriander, wheat, orange, lemonade and light sweet malt. Weak taste of light fruit, coriander, wheat, orange and sweet malt. Light body medium/low carbonization. This beer is completely lacking in intensity. It is like a diluted witbier. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great color! Nice aroma and the flavor is a one of a kind. A banana flavor with a bite of spice and a hint of wheat. Looks thick but very refreshing. My favorite out of the 5 I sampled. I actually walked out with a growler of the Wits End over the others.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Draft at Sweetwater. Hazy straw yellow with almost no head after a few seconds. Only a faint nose of yeast is evident. Nice clean, well incorporated flavors of cloves, banana, lemon, and sourdough lead to a short, refreshing finish.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
On tap in Falls Church. Great aroma to this wit. Spicy and fruity with teaberry, coriander, orange peel and sweet malty notes. Cardammon? Sweet and musky. Cloudy golden with thick white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet, wheaty with orange and teaberry. Light rind and coriander bitterness at finish. Yeasty and rich. Big flavor on this one. Great spicy-sweet finish. Tons of cardammon.

jefcon (1420) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Really cloudy in the glass, even for a wit. Looks like overly pulpy grapefruit juice. The nose has nice fruit and spice notes, but there is also a grainy yeastiness that smells fresh. Full, thick mouthfeel, slightly dry finish.
