Pintofjoe29 (31) - 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).

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 (6231) - 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.

malrubius (2724) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Can from Julios. Hazy pale gold straw with lasting head and lace. Grassy lemony bready aroma with light spice and herb. Tropical fruit sweetness with grass and wheat tang and orangey wheaty minerally finish with some lingering sweetness. Light body soft. It takes a few sips to realize this is not a wit beer. The lingering minerally grassy herbal bitterness doesn’t fit this type of refreshing beer. This came on very high recommendation from someone I trust, but I won’t get it again.

12oz can. Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of wheat, chamomile, and orange. Taste is primarily wheat and orange peel with a malty sweetness. Light bodied, medium carbonation.

Beerdedone (3332) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of wheat, lemon, floral, citrus and grass. Flavor was crisp and bitter with lemongrass, coriander, citrus, wheat, grass and some light spices.

Bulk_Carrier (4534) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Treated as a pale lager as that’s what it looks, smells and tastes like, this was poured into a pilsner glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy well built burnt yellow color with a slight transparency about it. Carbonation could be seen rising to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely. Somewhat messy spider web lacing. The smell started off with the sweet orange peel and then lightens up into a subtle bitterness. Subtle floral chamomile components - somewhat crisp and eventful round it out. The taste was mainly the same - sweet first, subtle bitterness - floral and then grassy. Light wheat bite trying to make a presence in the aftertaste but doesn’t amount to much. Quick dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body. Seems like the wheat gives it a bit more - no worries, I like that. Subtle crisp sweet to bitter feels bumping over my tongue. Overall, hot damn, this stuff is really good. I want more cans to pound all Summer. Pass the brats and a baseball game!
