Bierdimpfe (575) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
Hazy pale straw color with storming activity. Slightly foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of roasted sweet grains, lemon, corn, wheat, faint coriander and floral spices. Sugary with low sharpness. Oily full body with prickly carbonation. Light finish, short lingering sweet malts and soft spices. Okay freshness, a bit flat. Faint flavors and bland. Not a good witbier, overall the quality is mediocre.

rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 9, 2016
Pours a thin layer of foam that recedes quickly. Appears hazy straw yellow. Taste is orange, coriander, lemon, wheat. No Belgian phenolics or yeast character. Palate is thin and somewhat sweet with prickly carbonation. Overall- Drinkable, but far from a world class witbier.

Lagerboy (2080) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
355 ml can as Belgium Moon. Slightly clouded orange yellow, fine white lasting foam. Faint aroma of coriander, wit spices and orange. Taste is quite thin, bland and aqueous, coriander, orange and lean wheat malt. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Limp crafty industrial swill. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

tekstr1der (451) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Despite its origin, I really enjoy this stuff. Pours a hazy golden with a finger of white foam that clings. Aroma is bread, bubble gum, and orange yeastiness. Flavor follows closely. Very balanced with just a bit rough in the finish.

Meta zlocista barwa jak przy pszenicznych. W aromacie pszenice I drozdze. W smaku troszke chmiel I drozdze .Piana slaby szybko znika. Nie warte polecenia moim zdanien.

Taboada (1048) - Compostela (Galiza), - SEP 16, 2016
Tasted from the tap several times. Cloudy, light orange colour with a medium foamy white head. Aroma of lemon, corn and wheat. Taste is light and watery with a strong presence of the wheat and a citrus finish. Next one please!

lupulist (327) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours a yellow orange colour with a white head. Aroma of fake orange and coriander. Tastes mild and sweet, with a bit of cardboard. Boring and bland.

mcberko (16021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out light coriander, some spices, and citrus. Flavour is very weak, with some skunk, light coriander, and herbal notes. Skunky and herbal. Commercial crap.

ianwelby (1245) - SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Hazy orange beer with a white head. Sweet, orange-y scent.Its quite smooth and creamy, with the orange coming through again, a tangy, spicy aftertaste and some bitter hop. The citrusy zest really lingers, albeit in quite an understated way. Very sessionable.
