22oz bomber poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with about 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Aroma of orange citrus and some baking spices. Taste is light sweet. Orange citrus and coriander. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it’s ok, but not great. There are better witbiers out there but for 4 bucks a bottle, try it if you find it.

Tasted from 12oz bottle into nucleated pint glass. Appearance, aroma and flavor were all true-to-style Belgian Wit. Mellow wheat mouthfeel, citrus, coriander, faint clove, very fizzy, a little bready, tart, crisp and refreshing. Compared to classic examples, this one was a little less chalky and more acidic, better head retention from the oats. Not much, but a hint of Berliner Weiss sourness. Good stuff. I’ll definitely buy this again.

Seymour sent me two beers from St. Genevieve, I’m guessing he had no idea that my daughter’s name is Genevieve, sort of awesome.

Pours a hazy golden color with a very small (almost no) head even after an aggressive pour.

The aroma has a really excellent orange and floral expression. The beer smells a bit on the sweet side but it’s really pungent and nice smelling none the less.

The flavor is again very orange forward, but it’s nicely tart and not overly sweet. There is a good spicy bit with some coriander and light cinnamon.

The mouth feel of the beer is painfully watery and just too under-carbonated, I think this would be a gem of a witbier if they could figure out how to get some bubbles in there.

Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 3/28/12

Aroma: The nose has a lot of wheat malts with a good bit of spice and some yeast
Appearance: It pours a slightly unclear yellow color with a small foam of white head
Flavor: The taste has some mid-plus sweetness, with a little spice, and a later light tartness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is not watery at all, with a soft carbonation, and a cleanish mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Overall, this one isn’t a bad offering at all. Everything didn’t work perfectly, but I found it to be plenty good enough, and it had some interesting components as well.

Bif (2245) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - MAR 16, 2012
On tap at Shamrocks Pub & Grill. Served a slightly hazy light golden color with a small head that faded to some lacing. Aroma of fresh grain and some citrus with a hint of fruity sweetness. Light taste of citrus and a mild sweetness with fresh grain and a hint of spice. Very subtle bitterness and a dry finish. Light body, smooth and refreshing. has a somewhat creamy texture. Nice Witbier. Good for the summer season or even to compliment a meal. Worth a try.

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2011
bottle... medium murky golden grown, watery light tan head... the aroma is super sweet, reminds me of Fruit Loops, very sugary, a touch of wheat, and alcohol not totally bad, but weird for sure... tastes are sugary as the nose, ground up Fruit Loops with wet whole grains... this beer is unsuccessful

boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle... Poured vibrant, cloudy, pale yellow with a big, white head. NO LEMON! Nose had some strong yeast esters, berries, and earthy grass tones. Lots of carbonation, wheat malts, crackers, berries, yeast esters. Some spice, coriander and citrus. A nice drying finish that was quite quenching.

TizzleJizzle (791) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of coriander, clove, and lemons. Poured a golden color with a quickly vanishing head. Taste was average, kinda watery with hints of orange peel. Boring palate, almost no carbonation

mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2011
bottle thanks to tizzlejizzle. gold with a white head that dissipates fast. nose is heavy on the lemon, citrus, faint spices, and wheat. easy on the palate, flavor is dominated by clove/spices, watery, lemon, and a wheaty finish.

This was courtesy of Strykzone.The 22-oz bottle first was a gusher, and after a cup poured out on to the tablecloth it poured a cloudy orange to gold with a very large white head and light lacing. Nose of orange peel. Body light and mouthfeel lively. The flavor is of citrus and some coriander spice. There are better witbiers around, but this one was certainty drinkable.
