piscator34 (2673) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 19, 2006
Bottled sample. Cloudy yellow in colour with lots of carbonation. Floral hop aromas, along with some very strong banana and tangerine notes. There are some citrus flavor notes, but the banana element continued to be far too dominant. Thin bodied and too bitter for the style. Mediocre at best.

3.1
vyvvy (6858) - St. Louis, 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.

iowaherkeye (2804) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUN 5, 2006
12oz bottle, no date. Pours a cloudy light golden with a small white head. Aroma of some weird artificial orange (illinismitty put it best with the perfume smell), some yeast, and a little wheat in there. Flavor is some ripe fake oranges and a lot of wheat. Also a tad bit of bitterness before the wheatiness. Sharper carbonation, light bodied. An all right beer.

illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Pours pale golden with fizzy white head. Perfumy Aroma of orange, almost like orange air freshener. Somewhat thin bodied. Bottle says malt beverage with natural flavors, which pretty much says it all. This lacks the yeastiness and body of a true wit, and has a cheapness to it. But I was expecting to be much worse than it was. This would be an OK pool beer.

locarboy (129) - USA - MAY 20, 2006
From a bottle chilled in the ’fridge poured into a pint glass. Marshmallow fluff-like head that took a bit of time to dissipate. Aroma of hair perm solution (no, I never had one) which belies the flavor. I was surprised that Berghoff actually got one right. This ale actually uses the correct yeast and appears to strike a correct balance of barley/wheat/natural flavors. It even got cloudy when chilled. Nice wit flavor and good for the price of $10 for 12 bottles.

3.1
Dogbrick (14344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2006
On draught at Bodega in La Crosse. Pours light golden color with a thin white head that dissipates steadily. Very little lacing is apparent. Citrusy aroma with a touch of spices. Light-bodied and very crisp with zesty citrus flavor, as well as some spices and wheat. The finish is very fizzy on the tongue and not overly flavorful aside from some mild spice. Decent but not memorable.

3.2
keoki182 (305) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Available in bottle in West Bend, WI. Pours the color of what can only be described as concentrated urine, but smells like bubblegum, bananas, and coriander. There is also a hint of a honey-based wine, perhaps a mead? The mouthfeel is solid but unspectacular, quite fizzy and not too heavy. The taste is the best part: bubblegum and bananas again. It’s really just a good summer beer. Nothing earth-shattering, but a nice smooth and clean experience. 11/20

2.8
hopdog (13267) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a light to medium, and lightly hazy, golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of lemons, coriander, light wheat, and light yeast. Tastes of wheat, citrus and very light spices. Thin and watery.

3.2
sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2006
i think this beer is probably unfairly lowballed as a berghoff. objectively, this was a decent to good representation of the wit style. there’s nothing very challenging going on, but it still wasn’t as bad as this website would have you think.

2.4
ninobrown (16) - USA - APR 18, 2006
Reviewed as: Witbier Hazy medium yellow. Sudsy head that lingers awhile. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with prominant orange. Yeasty sweetness with a strong orange character, but not much else. Kinda one-noted, lacking spiciness. Seems a little bit on the watery side. All in all, a barely average beer in a good style.
