nuplastikk (5033) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2011
750 graciously shared by Anndiesel. Unfiltered, deep orange color. Big, foamy, off white head. Wheaty orange aroma. Itís a decent beer, more of a one and a half than a double. Decent beer, some orange-lemon-lime citrus tones. Almost like a Belgian version of a Bruery beer, if that makes any sense. Sugary. An OK beer, but at 9.99 a 750ml, itís way overpriced.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
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.

wlajwl (4538) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Appearance is gold-orange and very cloudy. The aroma is heavy spices, almost similar to fruit cereal. The flavor is fruit, malts and some alcohol. It was decent, although Double Wits are not a favorite of mine.

ChainGangGuy (4505) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 2, 2011
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.
