Brackish honey color with vitamin pee aroma. Taste is watery wheat with a bit of spice. This is not good. $3/22oz

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky golden-tan with a very large white head. The aroma was citrus, musty, wheat, pepper and whiskey. The flavor was dryish, musty, spicy, lightly citrusy and peppery. There was a hint of honey on the long peppery finish. Complex and interesting I will definitely be getting this one again.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2008
22 oz bottle. Hazy light copper in color with a small off white head. Aroma: Spices- coriander, light orange, pepper, Yeast- moderate phenols and esters, light earthy hops, some light wheat and pale malt. Taste: some ltangy wheat, phenolic yeast- gets just a bit rubbery, some moderate banana esters, with a moderate pale malt sweetness. Peppercorns seem to be the dominate spice for me, with some light coriander and orange peel. A touch of vanilla in the taste also. I was expecting more of a traditional wit, this isn’t bad, but not something I’d seek out again.

Nice aroma of citrusy orange then a smell of peppercorn. I really that this was an interesting white ale, a bit on the spicy side. Alcohol was not prevalent at all. Would enjoy again!

I realize this is made with wheat, but to me this is definitely much more like a belgian golden ale rather than a witbier.... For a 6% beer, the alcohol was not nearly masked like it should have been, everyone was surprised this beer was only 6%... i think i would have liked it more had it been called labeled as a belgian golden ale made with wheat and spices rather than a witbier... I was trying to hard to classify it rather than enjoy it...

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2009 I have no Idea why this is rated so low. I really enjoyed this beer. Nice, heavier body for a witbier. Great wheat, spice, and light berry flavor. Lightly peppery finish, but nothing overpowering. Highly drinkable and refreshing. No alcohol presence.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2010 Bottle. It pours a clear orange body with yeast particles floating around. The aroma reminds me of Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat. There is a strong presence of berries - the bottle says they are juniper berries. The taste is very good, slightly dry finish.

Naka (698) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours a honey golden color with a fizzy white head. A spiced banana nose with some caramel thrown in for good measure. A little bit of pineapple and coriander as well. Taste of honey, some ginger, coriander, clove, and other exotic spices. Very Americanized version, but still pretty tasty.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Sample at PCBF 08. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma of wheat, Belgian yeast esters, coriander, lots of various peppery notes and some orange. Flavor was more of the peppery notes, interesting spiciness, orange, Belgian yeast and sweet maltiness.

Pours a golden yellow with a weak white head, aroma and flavor are hard to explain but i guess its the peppercorn and juniper. Not very good at all!
