Landmonger (156) - USA - MAY 15, 2013
Poured from a 750 ml bottle, very cloudy straw color, no head to speak of, the aroma is some citrus and bread, it is sweet, tangy and a funky after taste, the carbonation is very smooth and warmth from alcohol on the way down.

5000 (6184) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Dark straw, dirty looking, large white foamy head.   Looks like an American example in that its not pale enough.   Wheaty nose, no real spices.   Very faint citrus aspect.   Very dull on the tongue.   Wheaty overall, but not spicy.   Well hidden 7.5% ABV.   Finish just as it started, wheaty and without much spicy excitement.   Not one of the better Witbiers to come out of Belgium.   Not bad, but very boring.

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wine and Cheese STL. Thanks to jcnielsen to sending it to me. Pours a hazy cloudy, somewhat dark orange appearance with a big tan head. Fairly spicy, floral, potpourri, freshly cleaned carpet, a bit fruity aroma. Somewhat oxidized, a bit old, a bit goopy malty, orange fruity, fairly spicy flavor. This one has been sitting for a while, so itís definitely deteriorated but Iím not sure it would that amazing fresh.
