Bottle from douglas88. Seems a heck of a nice fella, but his taste in beer can be judged by his high rating for Romulan Ale. Pours gold with an ok white head. Nice aromas of citrus sorts of things with hot spice bits. Medium body with soft carbonation. Starts a bit peppery, but the citrus and spice and everything nice are there. Finishes clean and mildly spicey. It’s over a hundred today, and this is appreciated. Good.

dchmela (2560) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle courtesy Douglas88. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Citrus zest and coriander spice aroma and a little pepper. Taste is light and malty with a little orange and coriander, maybe some lemon. Light and refreshing, this works very well on a hot humid Florida day.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 16, 2009
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, yellow body with a smallish, frothy, white head. Smell: Slightly tangy scent of wheat marked by citrusy notes of lemon zest and orange peel. All the while there’s a strong scent of coriander spice. Taste: Altogether tangy taste of wheat with a subtle sweetness before the big kick of coriander hits. Again, some tastes of lemon and orange. Minimal hop character with only a mild bitterness present. Finishes appropriately dry with lingering tastes of citrus zest and peppery coriander. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus, lightly effervescent carbonation. Drinkability: Pretty good! An enjoyable witbier with a particularly bold spice character to it suitable for all kinds of outdoor, summertime activities - hiking, water skiing, and even badminton.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Courtesy of douglas88, thanks. Pours modestly hazy deep gold with nice off white head. The aroma is fruity with apples and pears to go along with yeast and cloves. The taste is sweet with apples, a sweetness like candi sugar, a sense of wheat and spices such as cloves and coriander. Nice brew with tasty balanced flavor notes.

Oranges, lemons, clove, some yeasty bread nose. Light lemon flavor. Refreshing. Floral notes. Dry Bready finish.

unclemattie (4034) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Thanks to Douglas88. 12oz twist-off bottle. 6% ABV. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Nice belgian yeast aroma. Sweet pale malt aroma. Some banana bread, some distant lemon. Flavor is bready, nice wheat malt character. Some lemon, lime zest, coriander, and a crisp hop. A "lighter" clone of Chimay White? maybe.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2009
2009 Bottle - Thanks douglas88! - Pours yellow with a small white head...aroma is spicy, yeasty and bright...flavour is similar, with a overlying malty sweetness that I haven’t noticed in other wits...high carbonation, good alcohol presence...not your traditional wit, but very enjoyable!

Pours clear light yellow with white head. Smell is subtle wheat and very faint spice if at all. Taste is sweet and wheaty with a light belgian yeastiness. Mostly just sweet wheat though. Thin body and soft carbonation. Didn’t do it for me, and this is a bit overrated, I think.
