Fairly yeasty aroma. However, the sweetness I've come to expect from other witbiers, I didn't find so much here. I probably would have been well served in letting this warm a little before I drank it, oh well, live and learn.

Usualy wit appearance, murky light yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is spicey, definitly coriander and orange and lemon peel, quite nice, but the flavor is not that enjoyable. Bland, stale, and unpleasently sour, there really is a lot missing from this one.

haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Pale golden color. Somewhat cloudy. Nice white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has citrus, lemon, banana, some spice too? Flavor could use a little bit more. Peppery, some citrus. Overall pretty good, but could use a little more to be a really good beer.

Its been awhile... the color was golden, and slightly cloudy. THe aroma was fruity but the flavor was too thin.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2004
Pale yellow with a medium, bubbly, white head. Aroma yeasty with cloves and banana. Flavor is similar: Mostly cloves and banana; a small hop hit through the finish, as the banana/clove lingers. I would tend to call this a hefeweizen rather than a witbier, but that’s just me... Mouthfeel is smooth and light but just barely sticky enough that it bugs me. Nothing great here, but solid all the same.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Lemony aroma with light spice. Thin mouthfeel. Orange peel, lemon, bread, and light spice on the tongue. Good beer for the summer.

3.1
SpringsLicker (3677) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Pours a frothy white head over a clear light yellow body. Lemon spice aroma. Lightly sweet but very subdued flavor. Light palate, thin and lacking in depth. Very disappointed in this one, I have had some other witbiers that were not bad and this is way below Avery’s usual high level of standards.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours a pale lemon yellow with a big white head. Aroma is quite odd; some lemon and coriander, but also distinct notes of bacon. Flavor is quite wheaty, with some orange peel and banana, and some other indiscernible spices. Interesting beer.

Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Spicy aroma to this one. Body looked like I squeezed pear juice in my glass. Decent white head with some lacing. Sweet fruity flavor but the acididy as it was going down the hatch wasn’t the best. But overall decent beer, worth a try, if nothing else just to check out that body color on this one.

shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2006 Bottle. Clove and bubblegum aroma - fairly subtle. Pale yellow color - slightly cloudy with little head. Light clove, banana, and apricot with moderate acidity and mild carbonation and bitterness. Nice smooth drinking witbier on the light side.
