tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAY 16, 2012
330ml brown twist-off bottle with production date stamp 2 days prior. Pours a dense straw color with a white frothy head. Slight coriander hint in aroma. Light body with soft mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Mellow light wheaty flavor, clean, slight grainy note. Pleasant combination of flavors at room temperature. A mellow Wit that "grows on you" over time.

JPDIPSO (6042) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Light straw color, with a quickly diminishing white head. Aromas of wheat and light citrus. Light sweet wheat and bits of spice and lemon peel. Not bad, just light and wimpy. Wit light. 4/13

superspak (5220) - Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2016
330 ml bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, light pepper/clove, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange peel, pear, apple, coriander, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light body; with a watery and lightly grainy/bready mouthfeel that is okay. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a decent witbier. All around solid robustness and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, pale malt, spices, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

It pours golden with some orange and with a white head. The head vanished abruptly. It has aromas of grass, musk, hints of orange, hints of spice, and a sweetness. It has a musky flavor to it it has some sweetness, grass, hints of orange, and spices. The flavor also tastes a bit watered down.. This is light bodied and has a sweet finish. The carbonation is moderate.

Tognetta (849) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - NOV 12, 2015
Dourada levemente turva, sem espuma. Aroma muito discreto citrico, coentro e cravo s com muito esforo. Paladar de dulor com baixa intensidade. Corpo leve, ainda menos carbonatao. Decepcionante.

Had it mainly because it is a Lebanese beer, but there is nothing special to it. Normal taste and appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BillWyce (1057) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Pours lightly hazy golden color with a small, thin head that was gone quickly. Aroma of lemon with some grass mixed in. Maybe some corn too. Light body, a bit flat. Lightly dry finish. Flavor of lemon with a touch of earthy yeast at the back. A grassy note and a touch of honey sweetness too. This is close to being quite good, but there are some issues to address.
