Bottle via trade thanks to KnightRider on BA. Pours a slightly hazy yellowish-golden color with a one-finger off-white head that lasts and leaves some good lacing. Aroma is nice with wheat, Belgian yeast, orange peel, coriander, lemon, and spice. Right on style. Flavor is a bit of a letdown but still pretty good. Mildly sweet with wheat, pilsner malt, yeast, orange peel, coriander, lemon, and floral hops. Just lacks a bit of balance. Medium body with average carbonation and a fairly smooth mouthfeel. Decent overall but not a standout.

Bottle: Poured a straw color with a white head. The aroma was sweet, lemon, and spice. The flavor was yeast, malt, lemon, coriander, and clove. Overall, not a bad Wit.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 5, 2009
(12oz bottle, thanks ryan) Small white head atop hazy straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon, some cream, light clove. Taste is medium sweet, lemon, light yeast. Watery light body, light creaminess.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle shared by ryan: Pours a transparent pale golden with a thin, wispy froth of white head. Aroma of grassy hops and pale biscuity Belgian malt with a touch of coriander spice. Starts with average fullness and a fresh grassy hop character with some mild orange zest and coriander spice before a drier smooth finish. Pretty drinkable, but dull.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 4, 2009
A bit overly sweet, overly spiced belgian whit. Body is a bit thin and watery. Meh.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Thanks to machfive55. Cloudy gold pour with a compact white head, nice sticky lacing. Yeast dominates the aroma, quite musty, with a floral background. Flavor has a pronouncedly whole wheat base, yeast and spices meld the musty and spicy elements together, hint of orange. Medium body, zesty palate.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours hazy pale golden, topped with a moderate sized white head. Somewhat spicy aroma, with coriander, orange, clove, wheat and vanilla. Flavor begins with a hefty amount of wheat, belgian yeast, and citrus. Spice, notably coriander builds towards the finish. Wheat, bubblegum, and spice hang out for a lengthy finish. Very drinkable and quite refreshing.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with a large sized white head. Aromas of lots of spices (corriander), citrus, and sweaty wheatiness. Tastes of of the same spice, citrus (lots of oranges), and I was getting a fruty/banana.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Pours a cloudy golden with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of corriander, lemon peel and those classic Wit spices. Flavor of the same. Dry and crisp and loaded with Wit character. Find Wits boring to explain but love drinking them.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange body with a white head. Coriander, wheat, light citrus and bubblegum notes. Spicy dry and sweet. Decent.
