rcubed (35) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Appearance - Hazy pale yellow, 1.5 finger head, low carbonation. Head fades quickly. Aroma - Big on the coriander and nutmeg. Light citrus character along with the tangy wheat malt and adjuncts. Taste - Sour citrus notes, like a mix of sour lemonade and orange juice up front. Although they dont use any Im getting some ginger notes as well. Definitely get a mix of nutmeg and coriander in the end with some tartness. Medium body. Almost a completely dry finish though. Tangy and refreshing, great for a hot day.

A decent offering, well worth the money and id possibly get it again. Just didnt knock my socks off. but a tasty offering for the style. just too costly to make it worth gettign again.

Ron (3889) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin to medium white head. Spicy lemongrass and big coriander notes. On the thinner side of medium, spicy and a little minty flavor. Finishes with some nice wheat notes, and a light hint of ginger.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JUL 5, 2010
12 oz bottle - Aroma - Very floral with a heavy emphasis on the orange peel. Light spices with enough sweetness to notice.

Appearance - clody orange/yellow body with a fluffy, soapy white head. Clingy lacing left behind.

Taste - heavy lemony body, with a light tartness on the finish. Really a fine example of a wit. Lots of bitter orange, nutmeg help round things out nicely.

Palate - refreshingly light and clean with a medium softness to it, carbonation light massaging the tongue

Overall - absolutely loved it and it was quite simple to knock 2 bottles of this back while hanging around the pool

bleeng (1681) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - JUL 1, 2010
On tap at Tops Tempe. Pale yellow hazy. No head, medium carbonation. Nose is very tart and lemony. Taste has very little flavor-where is wheat, spices anything? Very light body. Boring and not really very good. Poor interpretation of a Belgian wit.

jpieper (15) - Broomfied, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Sweet with bubbly carbonation. Flower taste and citrus aroma. The after taste is a bit tart and brings out almost a bitter citrus flavor.

wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Tasted from bottle at Lush Roscoe. Pours pale orange with a thin white head that recedes quickly leaving minimal lace around the glass. Nose of yeast, orange, and spices, including coriander, cinnamon, and a hint of nutmeg. The orange flavors come through nicely with the spices mostly subdued until the back where nutmeg, coriander, and a hint of cardamom come through. The body is light with average carbonation, an oily texture, and a medium spiced finish.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2010
Bottle from 16th Liquor. Hazy, straw-coloured ale with a large, frothy, white head. The nose is soapy and floral with big notes of lemon. Citrusy, tart flavour. Good spice. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Short, tart finish.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Had from 12oz. bottle from Hi Time Wines. Pours hazy yellow with very slight head that dissipates to nothingness. Carbonation is slight, but lasts throughout. Aroma is citrus, flowers, lemon, and grapefruit. Taste is a very nice white with orange, lemon, spices, and floral tastes. Finishes sweet with citrus lingering. A nice white that could maybe use a bit more carbonation, but overall easily drinkable and refreshing.
