on tap at Haven Gastropub in Orange, CA opaque yellow pour with a white head, this beer was lemony, grassy, herbal/medicinal, and underwhelming.

Lemony and yeasty - pretty sour - tasty. When I drink a wit, I want it to either be really easy to drink or somewhat sweet and with a depth of flavor. This beer isnt quite either of those things.

Beer tasting at The Stable. Appearance and aroma are akin to a hefe. That aroma is delightful. Flavor was quite sour. Orange notes and some yeast. Still, too sour for me.

Bottle at Yamamori, Dublin. Pretty cute cool bottle. Light citrus aroma, Hoegarden-esque wheat beer taste. Nicely balanced and finishes very well. Accompanied the sushi nicely!

330 mL bottle, picked it up since it was on sale. Pours completely hazed golden with a white head. Aroma has lots of spice, heavy on nutmeg, ginger, and clove with lemon coming in afterward. Ginger and nutmeg also lead the flavor as well, so much as to give me a distinct egg nog impression. Some citrusy lemon and orange zest come into play as well, with vague hints of coriander and cloves. Certainly a very interesting witbier.

Golden hazy with a white head. Citrus, spicy, light yeast in the aroma. Smooth and easy drinking. Light spice, citrus, bright fruits, some yeast in the flavor. Crisp and clean and wholly refreshing. Very nice.

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.
