Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2014
Hazy golden pour with white head and good lacing. Aroma is typical wit; noticeable coriander. Very good flavor; tart and refreshing. Good mouthfeel and clean finish. Very good. The 7.5% alcohol is NOT evident.

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a hazy bright gold color with white head and plenty of it. Coriander, wheat, and a little funk on the nose; follows onto the palate. More earthy than the regular wit.

PorterPounder (5697) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Light orange murky pour - soft snow white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is lemony and yeasty, a hint of coriander. Flavor is full bodied and fresh. Pick up some lemony accents, a bit of sweet cookie dough, some coriander spiciness, slightly salty in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick and velvety. Pretty solid.

sebletitje (6895) - 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.

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.

Dogbrick (8658) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Sampled on draft at D’s 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.
