12oz bottle in a wine glass. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts, a little spiciness, some wheat, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent witbier.

Medium-bodied brew with a minuscule white head. A lovely combination of orange & coriander & hay in the nose. Bitter citrus flavor with a peppery finish. Hazy orange-juicy appearance. Not your mother’s oj, though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of white pepper and coriander with dried orange. Hazy orange appearance. Flavor is sweet citrus and sweet spicing. Secret ingredient? No idea. A bit flat, needs more zest. Pretty good offering though.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Bottle… Hazy golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is a nice blend of fruitiness and Belgian spiciness – apple, pear, bitter orange peel and coriander. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is both crisp and lightly fruity with a mild bready component. Finishes clean and refreshing. Thanks go out to growler for setting me up with this one!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden coloured body with a hint of a copper glow and a thin, fast-dying off-white head. Aroma of oranges, light malt, caramel, yeast, strong coriander seed, citrus and much more curacao! Medium-bodied; Effervescent up front with a lot of yeast and curacao showing and a good malt backbone, some light lemons and a dash of wheat to keep it light. Aftertaste shows a ton of spices, curacao and coriander seed to make it very true to the style with a lingering, yet nice aftertaste. Overall, a very nice beer that shows well, is complex and is very light and refreshing in hot weather! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Colonial Spirits in Acton, Massachusetts on 23-September-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 19-July-2011.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 12 oz. bottle. The pour is a very cloudy pale yellow with a small soapy white head. Head left small spotty lacing in my Weizen glass on the way down. Pleasing aroma of wheat, yeast, and many different spices: The taste is much the same, (mostly orange peel and coriander) with a light bitter after taste, plus a hint of pepper at the end as well. The mouthfeel is light. It is fairly true to the style. Thanks AirForceHops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy light orange with a white head. Aroma of spices (clove, citrus, pepper, anise) and orange. Flavor of light citrus, orange upfront with spices in the finish. This witbier was more fruity versus spice overload. It actually is one of the better American-made witbiers I have had in awhile.

The mouthfeel is light. It is fairly true to the style. It’s like drinking and remembering a small piece of summer on a cold November night. Well done by Haverhill Brewery, they have inspired me to make a trip to the brew pub!
