Dark yellow with a fluffy white head, long-lasting with decen lacing. Aroma of bubblegum and banana. Taste has citrus, apple and coriander. Interesting wheat, could be more complex.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours a hazy, yellow-golden body under a dense, creamy, white head. There’s a touch of tobacco on the nose, some pine, citrus, a little banana and spices. Quite complex. Banana and citrusy, along with coriander and other spices in the mouth, with a fine bitterness, showing all of itselves in the finish. Dry, medium-bodied, smooth and well-carbonated. A really pleasant witbier. (081229)

Leighton (14040) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle shared at BCTC 2010. Pours a murky yellow with a modest, fading white head. Plenty of wheat in the aroma, along with tart citrus and coriander. Flavor is quite sweet, with more lemon and spice notes. Light to medium in body with high carbonation. Finishes sweet and lightly crisp. Not bad.

Oakes (13539) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2001
I’m really not enthused with this one. I find it too thin and spritzy, with not nearly enough spice, malt, or hop character.

Aroma is from grapefruit and lemon with notes of malt and sweet fruit. Flavor is fruity. Quite mild and pleasant.

brokensail (13270) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: The beer pours a surprisingly translucent golden straw color with a white head. S: Certainly starts off with a nice witbier smell. Lots of coriander notes, banana, and orange peel. There’s some nice bready, wheat notes and a bit of sugar. Unfortunately, I pick up a cardboard aroma... T: The cardboard translates to the flavor, too. Sweet bread, banana, spicy coriander, earthy and floral hops, and slightly bitter orange peel. Pretty meh, I must say. M: The body is medium and so is the carbonation. D: I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but this wasn’t a terribly good witbier (or beer in general).

bhensonb (12467) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Aroma of wheat and citrus, backed by a bit of coriander? Hazy gold color, but virtually no head. Starts with a bit of stone fruit, quickly becoming citrus, and the coriander seems there. Medium bodied, a bit fizzy, but not in a bad way. The finish is very lightly bitter, and overall this is quite pleasant.
