Hazy blonde in color with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is spicy with some coriander, pepper, thought I got ginger but I could be wrong, as well as some musty yeast and wheat. Taste is nice and bright, spicy with coriander, citrus, vanilla, earthy yeast, and some lightly tart wheat. This was very well done.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2009
Bottled at Monks Caf, Seavgen, Stockholm. Pours out in a opaque yellow colour with a medium-sized sticky white foam. A rather solid aroma for a Wit with notes of pomerance, neutral yeast and coriander. Light to medium-bodied with notes of coriander, ginger, orange-peels, yeast and vanilla. Long well-rounded fruity finish of tangerine, mint and yeast.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle shared by Crosling. Poured a hazy, bright yellow color with a 1/4 inch white head that faded to a layer. Aroma is mostly dominated by spice, but not what I traditionally think of in a wit. Nutmeg overpowers everything else in the aroma, although there are faint hints of coriander and fruit (orange peel and faint lemon). Crisp, lightly fruity entry with hints of orange and some lightly tart lemon leads into a moderate spiciness with hints of coriander and a bit of nutmeg. High carbonation and a full, crisp mouthfeel. The nutmeg seemed a bit out of place to me, and overpowered some of the nuances of the beer, but overall it was an enjoyable wit.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2009
Pros: Gorgeous appearance, long lasting cream. Well conditioned. Excellent mouth feel and weight on the palate. Has a lot going on. Its a fairly complex beer, with several spice elements.

Cons: Out of balance coriander and nutmeg notes in both the nose and flavor.

Overall, its kick ass. But could be improved.

bw1982 (113) - , Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours a very faint gold to light straw color, slightly hazy with a thin head. The flavors are very light, there is definitely some citrus, but Im sort of missing the coriander and nutmeg. It is so light it is almost un-beer-like, but it is pretty good. Very clean and refreshing.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2009
(bottle - 330 ml) Very hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Aroma is very spicy and grainy with a strong amount of coriander and orange peel. Flavor is grainy and spicy at the beginning with a lot of the coriander coming through in the middle. The finish is bitter and spicy with some of the orange zest and wheat providing a dry bitterness.

TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Holy cow, the little owl on the bottle cap makes it the cutest ever. Pours very cloudy yellow with white head. Aroma is of ginger, spices, and sweet malt. Flavor is wacky! Coriander, sweet malt, ginger, acidic. Mouthfeel is effervescent and very dry. Overall, a little wacky but nice.

jmm635 (997) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2010 Pours a very hazy bright yellow color with a fading white head. Citrus flavors (mainly oranges) dominate the aroma as well as the taste. Theres a little bit of coriander spices throughout. Tingly on the palate and goes down smooth. Slight sourness on the back end.
