24.3 oz bottle, different bottle than pictured here. Poured a hazy gold with next to no head with tons of suspended floaties. Nose of lemony zest and coriander. Very tart and acidic flavor with orange, coriander, and lemon present. A bit yeasty. Thin. Above average wit.

This is a very good witbier. Pours a Dark cloudy, chunky gold, with creamy white head. Aroma is fabulous, Sweet malt, wheat, creamy candy, coriander, nutmeg, and orange. Similar in flavor, but the spices are not as pronounced and nice citrusy notes. Very drinkable and tasty. May be my favorite wit.

12 oz. bottle; slightly hazing light gold with trace white head fading to the edges; much sharper nose than the St. Bern with ginger, some sourness, pepper, salt and coriander; creamy mouthfeel with slight sharpness from the coriander; herbal, yeasty spice, lemons and wheat; some obvious salty notes in the nose and flavors; not a boring wit, but not together for my palate b/c of the sharpness; dry, salty finish that ends up fuzzy and flat as it goes down; PS - I have no taste :)

12 oz. bottle from Macs on West Peachtree. Wait...sorry...this is only an 11.2 oz. bottle. Nice fluffy head that holds. Yellow and slight orange translucent beer. Looks like a great wit to me. Quite an aromatic beer. Is that bit of funk I smell? I can only imagine that this beer has been sitting on the shelf for quite some time. Spice, banana, and yeast dominate this pungent aroma. I dont know if the funk was intentional, but I like it! Wow, starts off funky, and then turns into a nappy banana, crusty malt, and weird yeast aroma. Some nice subtle spices complimenting the flavor. Banana and yeast are present and add a nice flavor to the funky flavor that I am tasting. If this is a bad bottle...good! Not an extremely creamy brew, but it has a decent texture. Nice Witbier, with some fruity and funky flavors.

Pours pale golden yellow color with a slight haze and white head. Aromas of corriander and orange peel. Slighly sour orange flavor with corriander and some wheat. Flavors are nicely balanced without the spices being too overpowering. Thin to medium body with fizzy carbonation. A really nice Belgian style wit.

CanIHave4Beers (4138) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head and a bit of lace. Aroma is some ginger with some raw wheat, some orange and some lavender. The flavor has some nice tart orange with some ginger cookie spices and some lemon zest. The palate is fairly full. Sorry MJ, I fell just 0.1 points sort of having any legitimate taste.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy yellowm with a medium white head that quickly reduces to a ring, no lacing to speak of. Nose is soft candied lemon, (think sherbet lemons), plus yeast, very mild spiciness, not much really going on here. Flavors of Lemon and orange, starts lemon, becomes navel orange towards the finish, very juicy, almost like a Rickards White, yeast persists into the finish. Good, but not exceptional.
