Draft at Scholars. Pours yellow with a white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Has lemongrass, orange peel, and coriander notes on the nose and tongue which makes this a drier version of a Belgian Wit. Not bad. jgb9348 (6399) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Crisp, very hazy golden yellow coloured body with a thinnish, just a single centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of canned corn, some pale wheat, grass, yeast, hay, citrus, light coriander seed and some noticeable sweetness from cardamom, caster sugar and a dose of fennel seed. Light-bodied; Nice herbal flavours at first with a big coriander seed freshness, tons of pale wheat, a little grassy character, bunches of residual wheat and yeasts and ending with the same spiciness that shows through in the nose - very very nice! Aftertaste shows sweetness, a lot of coriander seed freshness, even more grassy and dry flavours and ending with the fennel seed complexity and airy flavour that makes this a nice option, showing some mild tea at the end and some sweet citrus flavours as well, but only on the very end. Overall, a very nice beer overall and an amazing beer for the style, especially as a Lager! I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Columbus Circle), New York on 11-June-2017 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 09-September-2017, and I believe this should be categorized as some sort of Lager instead of the 'overall' 'herbs/spice/veg' category which usually talks about an Ale - this is shoulders above that generalisation and should be lumped in with other lagers to make it clear how superior this one is!

Tap at boston hotel. Pour is yellow amber and clear with fairly white head that lasts about 1/3 beer. Nowe is citrusy and light and body follows. A bit sweet and a bit of wheat carrying the load. Great for warm weather and would do again.

Bottle at home. Dullish gold colored. Nose is light citrus and bready. Tastes of bread, orange, slight herbal tones, minerals , banana peel. Semi sweet. Palate is weaker end of spectrum. Pintofjoe29 (61) - Dingman Ferry, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2017 Pours cloudy yellow with a small head. Smells of lemon and spices. Taste is refreshing. Lemony. Reminds me of tea actually. Clean finish. A smoother witbier due to lagering. Not that bad!

Well cut my knees off and call me shorty. What an interesting idea, a lagered witbier. Pour is hazy yellow in my willibecker glass. Aroma is lightly sweet, thicker blanket of wheat malt and maybe, what I guess, is chamomile. A general mix of stuff but definitely lager-y, cleaner aroma. Flavor is a clean coriander wheat flavor. Basically, a lagered wit, as designed. Cool idea. If I find this for a decent price I will buy again (PA prices are wack). theviolet (186) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2016
Semi cloudy golden color with a short lived white head. Very light on the palate, easy to drink. Slight citrus flavor, but the orange isn’t overwhelming. Feels a bit heavier as the flavor settles. Interesting pick up - glad I tried it. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a disappearing white head. Fizzy. The aroma is bready with some cinnamon, coriander and hints of lemon. The flavor is stronger with chamomile, coriander and background notes of cinnamon and lemon. Maybe some light touches of honey. Pale maltiness. Light and pretty dry on the palate, but the spices are a bit much for me. Decent mouthfeel though. Just OK overall.
