Very strong orange flavor, the sourness does not overpower the beer. Great witbeer, not overdone.

This is a truly beautiful beer. It pours a hazy glowing gold-blonde with a one finger, aromatic head. It smells like fresh wheat, lemons, and a little malt. The taste is one of the most refreshing tastes I have ever experienced. Fresh lemons, sticky rice, malts, all in perfect balance. This may be the best summertime brew I have ever had.

lcwakshul (244) - Chester, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2011 11.2 oz bottle in a Hefe glass. Light orange pour with moderate frothy white head which dissipates quickly. Not very appealing aroma. Nice flavors of orange and a little spice. Nothing special. Very drinkable. Decent body.

BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2011
Pale golden colour, with fluffy white head. Lots of spice with coriander, orange peel & nutmeg which is a little more unusual. A very nice Belgian Wit style that’s very good on a hot day.

Foxbush (2119) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2011
This is one of the last 2010 Christmas beers. The aroma of fruit and spices was present as soon as I opened the bottle. The Beligan White ales have a great following. The lack of hops and also malt flavors does not endear me to this ale. Coriander and orange peel are evident from the first sip to the last.

bmeup (681) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - JAN 5, 2011
Strong coriander and spice in this pale full bodied Wit. Very pleasant to drink but a little spicy.

3.2
Niko100 (2998) - Chicago, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Hazy pale straw color; Light to medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of yeast, lemon, coriander, & some nutmeg; Flavor of wheat, coriander, citrus (notably lemon & orange), and some spice; Finish is slightly sour; Overall, could not really get into this one - decent.

3.7
AwYeh (102) - Canton, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Pours a hazy golden yellow with small white head. Smell is very unique; predominantly floral and spicy (most notably coriander) with a bit of citrus (presumably from the orange). As it warms, a bit of honey comes out. Taste follows smell with an additional peppery flavor. Light body with medium carbonation.

3.4
JaBier (8307) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with a huge white head. Aroma is coriander, malt and light hops with a bit of a citrus note. Orange and coriander flavor with some malty sweetness and a crisp finish.

3.5
Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2010
This hazy gold pour has a very fruity aroma. Notes of wheat, sugar, and sweet fruit with a tangy finish.
