3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Properly cloudy/milky yellow color. Spicy lemon cake and coriander spiced nose with a very light, silky smooth flavor of bready wheat, fluffy yeast and some lemon twang. A heavily spiced hefeweizen/witbier that sits very delicately on the palate.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2005
On tap at brewery - Pours a hazy light orange with a thin frothy off-white head. Aroma is mildly malty and decently spiced with some citrus notes. Starts semi-sweet and fizzy, but that could just be a result of the cold temperature it was served at. The wheat flavor seems to remind me more of American wheat beers versus their European counterparts. The spices are pretty well done here as is the hop bill, which kinda surprised me by not being through the roof. Could use a little more Belgian malt and wheat, but otherwise enjoyable and quite drinkable as it warms.

BBB63 (6155) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Thanks to all those at 3FFF for bringing this by Joes’ Party! Cloudy orangy hue with a small head but great lace. The aroma has notes of caramom, clove, floral and grassy hops, lemon, and yeast. The taste starts wheaty and yeasty with a mild and interesting fruity undertone. Sublime spice and a touch of pale malt on the finish. The feel is lively and agressive, refreshing and clean. A good witbier with the expected Three Floyds twist.

Cornfield (5552) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 I’ve had mixed reactions whilst imbibing this brew. Not much to look at for a wit, but alive with grassy, spicy, lemony aromas. Quite lively in the mouth, this is a muchly hopped up wit. The bitter spiciness was welcome and enjoyable, but not really close to style. Still... I’d drink more in a flash.

heemer77 (5109) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Sampled at the brewery. My first rating in a plastic cup. Having had Hoegaarden the night before, I felt that this was fair to compare. A medium white head and light gold cloudy color. The aroma is oranges, hay, fresh bread and a hint of the corriander. The mouthfeel is full and this is highly carbonated. The beer tastes strongly of hops for the style. There are also oranges and a very light spicing. Too light on the corriander for me.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 28, 2008
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy uncarbonated yellow-white colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was hoppy floral malty and spicy. The semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops and floral. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

jsquire (3562) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2004
On tap at the brewery. Murky yellow with a thin, cream colored foamy head. Traditional wit spicey nose. This beer tingled on my tongue. Spicey flavors with clove, all-spice, licorice and almost a mint flavor in there. Some doughy yeast and lots of pine hops in the finish. Odd wit, but tastey.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 6, 2005
tap at brewery-dec 30,2004. pours a cloudy yellow hue with a slightly off-white head. big corriander aroma with a variety of spices. very aromatic and true to the style. AWESOME lacing, even in the stupid plastic cup they serve in. NIce noble hop bite in the finish. I expected a three floyds twist with some citric hop notes, but that was not the case. As it warmed, the lemongrass notes came through much better. I really like the fact that Three floyds kept this beer to style but i was also kinda wanting a "its not normal" twist on it. I would LOVE to have a keg of this in my apartment.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Awesome! Brought to marinaro500’s post-Thanksgiving gathering by the folks from Three Floyds. I believe this was kegged that very day. Had a cloudy, pithy peach juice body with a thin cream head, reminding me of those Goya natural fruit juices. Spicy, very flowery aroma. The same spicy esters carried over into the body with plenty of coriander, biscuit, and orange peel. On the earthier side of witbiers, lacking that sharp citrus bite I’ve come to expect from the style. It was tasty, though!

Frank (3026) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Sampled in plastic at the brewery. Mild nose but definitely hoppy in the 3F style but with a real spicy witbier character. I must mention it was served too cold for my taste. Shame on you Floydicus!
