Pours light gold with a slight head. Not a lot of smell to this one, but has a nice slight citrusy taste to it.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle... Poured somewhat orange with an easy forming eggy, off-white head. Loads of yeast spices and coriander in the both aroma and flavor. Wheated malt sweetness and vanilla along with bitter orange rind peels, citrus, grassy hops, and yeast spices as it dried out towards the finish. This was well done but if I were to nitpick Id say a little too much on the spicing here.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Hazy yellow with small amount of whitish head. Very floral aroma and coriander. Flavor is very heavy on the spiciness which I think comes from the grains of paradise. Somewhat bitter orange pith twinge on the finish. Very effervescent. Reminds me of a a bier de garde more than a traditional wit. Pretty good and refreshing, but not exactly what I want when Im having a wit.

BelgianBeerGal (4023) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Release #10 bottle from the brewery. 5.1% alc/vol. Wow, thats a good and oddly powerful witbier. Tons of wheat, citrus and yeast. This is not a bland interpretation of the style. Tasty.

22oz bottle 7/31/14 (Woodmans-Waukesha)-Pours a hazy yellow with a small white covering. Aroma of wheat, coriander, and spices. Taste of the same with some yeast. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and easy drinking.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2014
On tap at the Denver brewery. Pour is hazy golden with a small white head and good lacing. White pepper, basil, lavender, light vanilla, biscuit, herbal, grass, and straw in the aroma. Taste is heavy spice - lavender, basil, white pepper - lemons, grass, biscuit, vanilla, and phenols with a spicy finish. Light body with high carboantion. Decent beer but a bit too heavy on the lavender to be a great wit for me.

Bomber from Highland Wine & Liquor. Ive had some trouble finding the information for the batch numbers for the Epic Denver brewery. I need to dig around their site some more. I wasnt expecting a whole lot out of this one, as Epics Belgian beers seem to be hit or miss for me with a few more misses than hits. This, however turned out to be one of the best witbiers I have had. The pour is very light in color, very textbook for the style, with significant cloudiness in the body. The aroma is wheaty and grainy with just hints at orange peel and savory spice. The palate is pretty full, but not sticky. The grains come through nicely here, imparting raw wheaty flavor in a good way. There are suggestions of clove, light fruits, gentle citrus and a nice, drying finish. There arent any overbearing yeasty notes and no extra stickiness or sweetness, despite the somewhat higher alcohol content for the style. Honestly, this is quite a nice Belgian wit.
