bottle shared at RBSG - cloudy yellow pour, light citrus, spice and funky. Coriander, cloves with nice hint of tart that rounds it out. Very tasty, Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Hazed gold pour with a thin white head. Lots of grapefruit and citrus in the aroma, a little spice and herbal character. Tastes lightly tart with a lot of creaminess, a little spice, plenty more citrus. A standout wit. BillKismet (4103) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Cloudy, diluted tang color, no head. In-your-face grapefruit pop to the nose. Flavor is more subdued, but still sings of grapefruit. Juicy and citrusy body. A one note wonder. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Lemon aroma comes hits me like dish soap, not my thing. hazy yellow gold sticky white head. dry lemon, little tart, clean finish, great wit. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Nice citrusy nose, I get lots of grapefruit and a good deal of juniper like spice. Pours hazy light golden, really light, nice light color. Grapefruit, juniper, oranges, light corriander, wheaty finish. Super awesome, light refreshing. Probably best with I’ve had.

750. Corked and capped. Thanks michael! Pours a hazy pale gold. Huge grapefruit nose. Fizzy lightish body. Tangy grapefruit mid palate. Beautiful cleansing refreshing beer. Long citric finish. CanIHave4Beers (4205) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Sampled at RBSG 2010 grand tasting. The beer pours a very pale yellow with a small head. The aroma is peppery as can be with some lemon and earthy notes. The flavor is peppery and mildly sour with some citrus and lemon drop candy. There is a nice yeasty spiciness to this as well. Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle at RBSG. Pours clody yellow, thin white head, no lacing. Nose is cold cream, privet hedge, lemon, wheat. Flavours of candied lemons, spice wheat. A nice wit, but nothing terribly special. egajdzis (6692) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of lemongrass, herb, light skunk, citrus, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus, lemon, pine, and light spices, with a crisp finish. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Sampled at the RBSG Summer Grand Tasting (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a murky golden straw, small whitish head to a ring. Aromas are decent coriander, light tartness moves into big lemon. Light lactic acidity, funky brett, light wheaty malts and bread. Initial is different, light and Belgian yeast slanted with a touch of spice, touch of estery pear, dry zest, light bitterness and a nice big dose of grapefruit juice, touch of lemony tartness grows on me at the backend. Coriander lighter than anticipated, with that telltale and lovely Fantome sourness that grows on the palate. Different, and probably my favorite Witbier for what it’s worth. Sourness is nice, with a touch of coriander and what seems like white pepper.
