good for a hot summer day. traditional belgian white style and very refreshing. some say mixing with OJ is good for a hangover and is called a colorado mimosa. use organic OJ and it becomes a Boulder mimosa. pour in a glass to see the nice color gregwilsonstl (2505) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 28, 2012

Great WitBeer. Perfect for a summer afternoon. This is the kid of WitBeer more people need to be exposed too so they don't judge the style based on blue moon!

Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of coriander and citrus. I first tasted this at a beer tasting at the Phinney Market, and it was my favorite of the bunch, so I bought a six pack. Nice orange in the taste and some great spices. This beer was kinda expensive but worth it, I would say.

Aroma: Funk is the very first this I get on the nose with this ale. Funky, yeasty, barnyard almost with the very slightest suggestion of coriander or fruit trying push through. A welcome change from the big candied fruit nose of so many American Wits.
Appearance: Hazy, pale yellow with a quickly fading head that returns with a slight swirl of the glass. I left the yeast in the bottom. A sturdy lacing does remain on the beer though; I bet this ale would benefit greatly from bottle conditioning.
Taste: Nailed it! The wit can be a tricky maiden to tame due to the ease with which you can make the beer sweet and over the top fruity. This ale is neither. It starts with a rich yet drying yeasty flavor that is immediately surpassed by the sweet fruit flavors of the coriander and orange peel. The orange peel feels like maybe it was bitter because it lends depth of flavor not sugar to the taste so they avoid the cloying feel and stick to refreshment and a nice slightly acidic finish that gets the juices flowing.
Palate: I like the way the beer drinks: rich yet session-ably light. The carbonation shines in the mouth and really releases the complexity of flavor the funk hides on the nose. Whatever yeast these guys are using really does a great job of making this beer feel authentically Belgian.
Overall: Although I do not seek out the Belgian Wit as an everyday drinker, I think this one has the depth of flavor and avoidance of candy sweetness that would make it worthy of being stocked in my beer fridge. Plus it’s my wife’s favorite beer!

The appearance of this beer is that of an off yellow color with a foam that is bone white. The aroma of this beer starts with a corrainder mixed with a subtle lemon zest. The taste of the beer has a orange zest with a sweet subtle malt. whiskeyrocks (90) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2012
Light, cloudy yellow color. Light refreshing taste. Notes of citrus and spice up front that last to the finish. Yeast on the bottom and needs to be mixed into the beer to get the full flavor. Poured into glass and gave almost a half inch of head. Not to strong or yeasty. Goes down really easy and flavor remains on the tongue after you finish, leaves a spicy flavor well after. Would drink again BeerBunny007 (6) - Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2012 does not count
Damn good Belgian style light wheat beer! It reminds me of Biere Blanche. Really refreshing.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 11/26/2012. Pours very hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and yeast esters with spices; and good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, orange peel, banana, coriander, clove, wheat, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with malt and spices; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and very smooth mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent witbier! All around great balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth to drink. I really enjoyed this one; far exceeded expectations for sure.
