tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Bomber at Zeno’s. Pours gold with bunches of floaties, thin white head. The aroma is tangerine, lemon, coriander, some light toast. The flavor is spritzy lemon and orange, with a whole lot of coriander and pepper, and some yeasty sourdough bread. Not bad, but the spices are way overdone.

22 oz bottle given to me as a Christmas gift from my brother-in-law and sis. Pours a clear golden color with tons of visible floaties swimming around inside tons of carbonation despite the fact that this was the first 6 ounces of the bottle. I wonder how much more sediment is actaully at the bottom of this one? Aroma of tons of pepper and spice, oranges, coriander, slight wheat. Body on this one is rather dry with a light to medium mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma and very forced...very peppery and spicey, grainy and yeasty. Hmmm....it’s only 6% ABV so do I force the rest down?? Hell it’s my Friday night so why the hell not, just hope all the pepper and spices don’t give me heart burn.

Bottle. Typical citric, coriander, wheat nose with peppery notes. Peppery, dry, spicy, nicely done.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2008
bottle- aroma was real peppery, some phenols, but mostly an unpleasant spice. Thankfully, the flavor was quite nice- dry, coriander, a well done wit that was extremely satisfying.

Tmoney99 (11470) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Bottle from Champane Wine. Poured hazy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium spicy yeast aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium to heavy pepper spice flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration. Interesting brew that would go well with spicy food.

Godard (3) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2008 does not count
Smells like a wit that’s been hanging around a bit too long. Pours with a huge soapy head which settles fairly quickly. Only slightly hazy, mostly clear, perhaps what an unfiltered miller lite would resemble. Sharp carbonation on the tongue with light spicing. Light flavor as well, though the juniper is quite present. Also tasting some spice, though the carbonation makes it hard to tell. Stirring up the yeast adds a bit of a sour funk unlike the pleasant complexity of better wits. Still drinkable but not worth its premium price.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber/orange, no real head to speak of. Aroma is orange, juniper, light spices, a little soapy. Flavor is juniper, pepper, very slight touch of citrus. Strange Wit, very odd and unique.

3fourths (8394) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Barf. This stuff is gross. Looks like it’s been lightly filtered, a sin for witbier if it’s true. Smells and tastes like soapy juniper and gin with some fabric softener and ethanol. Slimy, silky body, where’s the fruit and where’s the clove? Blah. Is that a good enough review? I realize it’s only about 1/5th of what I should write, but I could only drink 1/5th of the bottle.

lilannie (384) - Adamstown, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Aroma: orange peel, coriander, some light hops, and yeast
Appearance: slightly hazy, goldish
Flavor: this is nice. orange peel, coriander, some light hops, peppery
Palate: smooth, filling
Overall: had with moderately spiced Indian food. Complemented well, not as well as say a hoppy IPA, but it was hoppy enough to work well.

22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy honey gold with a medium white head. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, yeast and berries. Taste of light coriander, orange peel and a hint of berry.
