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 it’s definitely deteriorated but I’m not sure it would that amazing fresh.

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 12/16/2011. This brew is a cloudy orange-amber color with a medium white head that burns away steadily to a wispy film. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of coriander, yeast and fruit. Medium body with a moderately tart fruit character and notes of bready malt, grass and sweet spices. The finish is fruity with a lingering yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle (odd looking). Pours with a hazy golden hue and a somewhat quick to fade white head. Aromas are extremely floral, rose water, potpourri, estery, phenol, alcohol, grainy. Flavors are of clove, phenol, ester, alcohol, bready. A bit sweet. Floral. Finishes with an odd, nearly cedar like note. Strange beer. Medium carbonation. Alcohol makes it a touch flabby.

Meilby (7610) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle 750ml @ fonefan
Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, wheat, caramel and hint of coriander. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle (750 ml). Orange, vanilla, and wheat malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet vanilla-orange. and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. Really don’t get any of the typical spices but still a nice beer.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2012
750mL bottle. Poured cloudy, medium orangey-golden with a dense white head. The aroma picked up sweeter oranges and wheaty notes with orange zest, white pepper, and cloves around.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor found sweet oranges, bready malts, and a touch of honey at the core.. cloves, coriander, and tart wheat around.. fairly sugary on the back-end and finish. Light-medium bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. nice brew, but a bit too sweet.

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2012
Draft @ Delirum, Brussels. Dorée trouble allant plus vers un aspect blé, col épais et crémeux blanc. Arôme reste assez discret mais laisse un léger bouquet de pelure d’agrumes et de citron et d’épice. En bouche, cette version hivernale est nettement au dessus de la version régulière de Wittekerke. Un profile épais rempli de bonnes saveurs fruitées allant du pamplemousse, à la mandarine et orange, le tout sur un côté de coriandre très agréable. Le tout comme mentionné avant, est épais, retient un bon profile de froment et de levure conférant un côté presque de bubblegum. Je note un malt pale/cara pour un fini poussiéreux mais aussi une pointe de pomme rappelant le cidre.

DrSilverworm (6372) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Big blue 750ml bottle, shared by Katie and Katie. Totally hazy orange color. Thin white head. Wheat, mostly. Little Belgian yeast. Coriander, just a bit of orange zest. Light carbonation. Little sweet zestiness. Not bad, but not great. Sugary sweet, and kind of malty.

5000 (6300) - 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.
