brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle @ Every Bruery Beer Tasting. Massively overcarbonated beer, even five or six years later. A clear golden pour with a ton of white foam. Not surprisingly, it’s quite oxidized. Super sweet apple juice and honey on the nose. Some lemon zest and a bit of a soapy lavender thing going on. Kinda grassy. Flavor is also just sweet and sugary. Some tart flowers and lemon rind. A bit of spices, I guess. But kind of dusty and old tasting.

Clear golden. Pear, peach fruitiness but not bad. Light body for the size of beer. Pineapple, peach...kind of sweet, fruity accent.

Tmoney99 (12407) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear yellow gold color with an average to fizzy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty spicy and herbs aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice sweet flavor with a medium herbal sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

(750ml bottle, courtesy of BMan1113VR) Pours a hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of mustiness, lemon, wheat, and yeast. Flavor of yeast, citrus, doughy, coriander, and florals.

KimJohansen (10404) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2008
Cloudy golden with tiny white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with wheat and orange notes. Sweet flavour with notes of yeast, fruits, wheat and malty notes. Malty and full bodied for a wheat.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 13, 2009
Bottle shared by JW77. Hazy gold pour. Big white head. Very spicy aroma with lots of yeast and honey notes. Flavor is heavy on the coriander, yeast, honey, orange and some apple notes as well. Pretty good.

hopdog (10255) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2009
750ml bottle acquired in trade with WeeHeavySD (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy golden color with an averaged to larger sized white head. Aromas of a bunch of different spices (coriander, ginger, and more), citrus, and wheat. Tastes of the same spices, citrus, wheat, and honey. Lively and fizzy body that left with a dry finish.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle shared by goldtwins at a Bruery tasting. Pale golden, cloudy beer. Aroma is absolutely loaded with bright floral lavender, coriander, peach and soft wheaty spiciness. There is also a lot of character from the yeast in here... a very complex mix of phenolics and floral spiciness. Light sage and a zesty citrusy flavour. Soft lingering fruitiness as well. Rich wheaty texture with a nice spritzy texture. Very floral and complex... man, this is killer stuff.

On Tap. Pours with a small white head and a hazy yellow-gold body. Aroma of coriander candi sugar, clove and some pear. Taste is alcohol, yeast, corriander, clove and yet very nice to drink! Full mouthfeel with lively carbonation.

my main complaint about original Orchard White was the overuse of lavender, which is better here. herbal and fragrant, but not so overpowering. i rarely like imperial witbiers but this is good.
