Strykzone (7018) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2005
As wheat beers go this is not a memorable one. However, I love that style of beer and probably score it a little higher than it deserves. It had all the characterics of a wheat, slightly orange color, light white foam, hints of orange in the flavor and aroma, etc. There was nothing to not like about this beer but it could have used a few more posistives. Some zing might have helped. It was bought on the close-out table so price was hard to beat. At 75 cents it was a bargain.

Wow, I get to be first to rate a bottled beer! Anyway, it has a clear goledn hue with a fading head and little lace. The aroma hints of perfume and floral hops, corriander, cardamom, and lemon. The taste is better than the smell. Hints of lemon, orange, honeydew, spice and wheat. The finish is short and clean. The mouthfeel is fizzy, lively, and watery. Okay brew, nothing outstanding.

Braudog (6509) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Medium haziness in this yellow beer with a thin head. Strong corn-starchy aroma, like Coors light. Vaguely yeasty character carries this, rescuing it from its poor draw on the nose. But its still flat and boring.

vyvvy (6121) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma has spice, husky malt and light citrus. Medium mouthfeel with somewhat sharp carbonation. Taste is spicy and husky. Finish is sour and grainy with some lemon citrus. Not a bad Wit - I went in expecting the worst considering some of their other offerings and was pleasantly surprised.

reebtogi (6012) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
355ml bottle pours a slightly cloudy pale golden orange color with a finger of white head that settled quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild orange zest with hints of banana and coriander spice. Taste is big malty sweetness with the orange zest and coriander and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body with light carbonation. A little below average for the style.

JPDIPSO (5990) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2004
OK, Im No. 2. Any beer that puts "Malt Beverage with natural flavors" scares me. Who are they marketing to? Dark golden color with a dissipating white head. Orange blossoms, cardamom and light vanilla clog the nasal passages. Has a odd flavored alcohol nose. Light malt, melon and orange peel flavors. Very synthetic flavors. We have an american wheat category, perhaps we now will need and american wit category. Egad!

thedm (5976) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2005
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized of unnoted length white colored bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was slightly hazy and light orange brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild astringent malt . Its mouth feel is initially tingly bubbly with a lingering bubbly palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained mild malt hop wheat bread and dough notes.

JK (5966) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Yellow. Strong aroma of citrus. Dominant flavor is orange and there is a lot of it. Also coriander. Sweet, light, and refreshing. Different from any other wit I have had. Good.

nuplastikk (5955) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2008
12oz bottle. Cloudy yellow-tan color. Minimal aroma, minimal taste. This is a pretty poor example of a Wit. Crisp mouthfeel, but very weak watery body with a sub par grain backbone. Straightforward and non-offensive at best, a disappointment.

dwyerpg (5883) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 7, 2005
Light in appearnace and aroma. Surprisingly, not very wheaty in taste, and barely reminiscent of any other Belgian wit Ive had. Really seems like an above-average lager.
