Thanks to tastybeer for the Christmas present. This was a very fine sessionable beer with the bonus that it comes in a can. If something like this were available locally it would be perfect for camping, mowing the lawn, or picnics. Drink it fresh and you will have a great time.
Aroma / Appearance - Pouring with a huge pillowy head this collapses into a golden carbonated base. The stark white head that reminds is like a dusting of snow. White pepper, bubblegum, and fruity esters sparkle with a light feel.
Flavor / Palate - Light hints of bubblegum brighten the mood before bananas and white pepper tickle the throat. A doughy finish tastes like liquid bread shots. The mildly bitter finish fades quickly. This is an ideal session beer that would not last long in the fridge.
Sixer of cans from Canal's, where CC products have finally started to show up in numbers. Nose and mouth very strong wheat character without too much slime, strong orange peel, coriander, really a textbook wit that doesn't get too oily, also stays fresh and bright without drowning in floor cleaner or grainy coriander soup. Pour hazy pale golden with orange highlights here and there, a very soapy, very bright white head that struggles to leave any lace behind. Faint/low bitterness, semi-sweet but mostly drier than that, hint of black pepper, cracker and bread in the finish, some nice maltiness for bonus points. But really, textbook, enjoyable.

Can. Cloudy honey yellow. Nice white well-lacing head. Aroma: very fruity & yeasty. Crisp & fresh. Light to medium body. Spicy taste dominated by coriander (somewhat out of balance). Fruit & yeast in the background. Light bitterness. Well-made. Yet not my kind of Witbier. LazyPyro (1464) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2017
355ml can. Cloudy golden colour with a thin head. Aroma: coriander, orange peel, banana. Taste: huge hit of orange peel/zest, spices, coriander, smooth malt, vanilla, fairly sweet, light bitter dry finish. Medium body, smooth but carbonation feels quite spritzy at first. Decent wit. obguthr (6585) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Coriander nose, somewhat fecal. Cloudy gold, thin head. Lemon and coriander, meringue hints. Medium body, moderate carbonation.
Rumbero (87) - Miami, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2017
Aroma: bready cereal. very citrusy, like OJ almost. sustained honey sweetness from the wheat malt. peppery-like spices.
Appearance: pours a very hazy straw color with an inch thick frothy white head that unfortunately (and longevity is expected in this style) dissipates rather quickly leaving a thin 1/8" head.
Taste: very citrusy orange juice with plenty of malt sweetness and just enough bitterness for balance only. coriander creates a peppery sensation.
Palate: the body is medium, the texture creamy, carbonation is crisp and astringency subtle. right on. Finish is long and sweet with all its citrusy glory lingering.
Overall: I like this beer a lot although the citrusy levels and spicy character are a bit more in your face than expected for the Belgian Wit category. But it works. Refreshing and delicious. Only fault is the weak head retention which is characteristic of Wits.

Pours orange with a thick, foamy head. Aroma is a little lacking, some orange and a little coriander. Flavour is lacking too. A little coriander but thats it. axl (1030) - Lund, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2017

Pours hazy straw color with a 1-finger white head. Aroma of orange mixed with an earthy note. Body is light, with a brief finish. Sweet, citrusy flavor with a mild spice note from the coriander underneath. Some earthiness as it warms. hershiser2 (3583) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2017
Can from Total Wine, Fredericksburg. Pours hazy golden with a large, soft white head. Aroma is white bread, coriander, little else. Flavor is banana (missing from the nose), coriander, yeast, dough (or more like flour, I suppose). Flavor is good.
