750ml Bottle: Faint aroma of wheat and orange. Poured orange in color with a loose, white head that disappeared quickly, but was later reconstituted by the carbonation. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, orange, grain, corn, and citrus. Medium body. Oily, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Wheat, corn, husk finish is medium sweet and lightly dry. 7.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at Dís in Monroeville this beer poured a murky orange-amber color with a medium sized foamy off white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was yeasty and bready with light notes of orange and pepper. The flavor was tart orange zest, lemon and tangy bread with hints of nut and pepper. The finish was long orange, bread and a touch of honey. Fairly full bodied. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at an esbls tasting. I brought this one. Very hazy orange gold with a decent even layer of white foam. The nose is apples and yeast with light fruit. Not a lot of flavor. Wheat, and apples are prominent. Alcohil is tasted but is not over bearing and bitterness is mild. Carbonation is significant. This needs more going on.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
11 ounce goblet - $8.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Clouded to the point of opaque murkiness with a dull, dark orange hue. 3/4 inch of pillow, white foam.
Smell: An aroma of fruity jelly supporting an odd herbal, flowery note mix, some underlying barley, and a drop of booze. Itís not exactly alluring, but, then again, neither is the soiled appearance.
Taste: Sugary breadiness with a bit of menthol herbaceousness. A bit of basic lemon and some noted florals, though the latter could be a lingering effect of the menthol quality upfront. A hint of stale orange peel slowly peeks out. Sweetish, fruity finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: I didnít like the standard Wittekerke, I didnít enjoy the Rosť variation, and now the Winter rendition.
