Beermogul (28) - USA - JAN 9, 2012
750ml cork and cage. Cloudy old gold color. Mild aromas of orange pudding, apple bread, praline and pine cone with a supple medium body and spicy, lemon pepper, mint blossom and radish sprout finish. A tasty food beer.

Citrus and light spice notes in the flavor. The wheat & extra yeast really help to round out the body without sacrificing drinkability or making it any less refreshing. Probably the best Belgian Witbier I’ve had yet - not sure how much that really says though. Great with or without an orange slice on a hot day.

Bottle. Cloudy, golden color with a nice head that disappears quickly. Aroma is a spicy, fruity smell. Taste is heavy on the clove but not unpleasant.

Marcius (207) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Appearance with pale golden color, cloudy liquid and medium head. Aroma very interesting: citrus and fruity. On the palate, it is acidic and refreshing. It is a classic Witbeer, well enjoyed!

Pretty watery and boring compared to my expectations. Nothing really wrong or bad flavors per say. Would drink anyday just there are nicer more flavor versions.

bellco33 (339) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Poured from bottle into a tulip: Pours hazy straw colored with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of citrus peal, coriander, funk, and banana. Taste is very wheaty, citrus peal, coriander, funk and a tiny bit tart at the very back end. Light body, medium carbonation, slightly stick feeling. This is a decent white ale.

Transfer from BA review on 12-24-12- Poured from 750 ml corked bottle into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a hazy straw-yellow color with a huge white head. The head fades relatively quickly giving a very light level of lacing. Smell- The aroma has a strong wheat and sweet orange citrus aroma. Mixed with these are aromas of pepper, yeast, banana, and some coriander. Mixing with these more classic wit aromas are some peach aroma as well, giving it overall a rather sweet smell. Taste- The taste begins with a nice wheat bread and orange citrus flavor. As the taste advances some peach fruit flavors come to the tongue and sweeten the taste slightly. A yeast flavor comes to the tongue and brings with it other flavors associated, with them of banana and pepper nature, which come to the tongue more toward the middle of the taste. Along with these flavors also comes a light clove spice taste. This mix of flavors takes the taste to its end where a somewhat sweet fruit and wheat flavor to be left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is quite light and crisp with a carbonation level that is slightly on the higher side. The carbonation and light body are fantastic for the citrus and wheat flavors of the brew as well as for making for one very easy drinking beer. Overall- A nice example of a wit. It is smooth with good flavor and a quite nice feel.

HuskerTornado (31) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into flute glass. Pours a bright golden color with a good sized white head that dissipates quickly. Lots of cascading bubbles coming to the top throughout the experience. Smell is citrusy, other light fruits, maybe apricot, coriander, and some additional spices. Taste is clean with a good balance of hops and wheat along with a strong citrus/orange peel flavor. Finishes with a combination of the fruity yeast and some fresh black peppercorns. Overall, a great witbier, very refreshing, a great beer in the warmer weather months, but also enjoyable year-round.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Classic witbier as far as North America is concerned, creamy, fluffy off-white head, colour a cloudy ochre; malty aroma, wheaty, classically perfumed with coriander and citrus peel. Taste soft and citrussy at first, wheaty sourishness as expected, mellow, spicy tones of the coriander, elegant, refreshing finish. Very Belgian in style and stylistically stereotypical.
