Bottle from the brewery (Sprecher). Pours hazy and golden. Pleasant wheat aromas,. Medium mouthfeel, tingling carbonation. some cloves, perhaps some cinammon though the wheat base is so-so. Not super drinkable CanIHave4Beers (4194) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours a golden color, very clear, with a large white head. HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2011
The aroma is very faint but has some nice qualities, particularly a distinct fruity orange character and some mild spiciness. The beer is slightly floral but not overly sweet smelling. It’s a real pity this isn’t more pungent than it is.
The flavor is nicely fruity, but again not particularly sweet. The beer is spicy and the orange peel character is sharp and bitter. The beer is slightly astringent in the finish & fairly "light" all around.
Amazingly good in comparison to some of the other business I’ve had from these folk
Tap at Lake Geneva brewpub. Light golden pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is caramel chew with coriander and orange essence. Taste is fruity and yeasty. I like the bubblegum flavor over the coriander. Nice and full in the mouth. A good wit. BVery (10711) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Tap at the Sprecher tour/reserve tasting. Light semi-hazy yellow pour with a large frothy white head. Lemon and orange peel on the nose. Medium palate. Orange and coriander on taste. Paired with a lemon cookie on the tour. nearbeer (5516) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2011
12 oz. Orange-blond with a lasting ring of foam. Nose is strong with peppery citrus peel, orange and coriander. This one tasted bold, spicy and tart from the get-go. Halfway through the spices and tartness became a bit much though. Light-medium body is lively and refreshing.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Pours hazy honey with a thin white head. Aroma is pretty fruity with lemon, orange, and wheat. Medium sweetness with mild bitterness. Average carbonation with a good body for the style. The orange is refreshing. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2011
I’m not sure why this is getting dogged so badly but this is a pretty good beer. Pours a deeper golden. Aroma is quite spicy, reminds me of several heavily spiced Belgian examples and also Victory’s example. Some honey and sweet wort sweetness, love the grains of paradise and coriander combo in the aroma. Flavor follows, the grains of paradise adds a beautiful kick, the wheat isn’t super prominent as there’s a good amount of barley backing it up, so not super light, bit of honey, plenty of coriander and orange peel but not annoying or over the top, nice finish with just a bit of sweetness, off-dry. Average body, slicker and fuller for a wit. I enjoy this. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a strangely clear golden orange color with a small white froth. Aroma is heavily spiced with coriander and some citrus, with a slighty wheat character but very heavy on the sweet malts, a bit bready and caramel. Flavor is also odd, lots of the same spices, very heavily spiced in fact, almost to a Christmas beer level, really overwhelming the soft citrus and wheat that is well in the background. Very muddled and strange. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Not sure what they intended for heemer77 (5358) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2011
This is the strangest looking wit I have ever seen. It is a deep amber gold with a bright eggshell white head. This appears more like an APA with barely any haze. The nose has lots of the expected lemon peel and coriander. There is also some banana peel. The taste is really spicy, no balance at all. I can barely detect the light malt behind the tons of banana peels, coriander and green wood. The finish is astringent and harsh. I am not a wit fan, but this is more soapy and tough to drink than most.
