Bottle. Sour, musty wheat aroma. Light yellow with giant head and high effervescence. Light dry orange and musty flavor with spice tones in the finish - coriander and vanilla. Probably the driest witbier available - tastewise closer to a saison or lambic. A very nice tasting beer but if you’re expecting a taste like Hoegaarden, you’re going to be disappointed.

12oz. Bottle. Multiple aromas of spice, banana, vanilla and mustard. Cloudy yellow body with creamy head. Vanilla and banana flavor with spices in the background. Smooth on the palate and leves some light spice and vanilla aftertaste. Good brew suprised to see Jolly Pumkin in 12 oz. bottles in AZ.

Ok, this one didn’t impress me. Poured a bit too clear of a golden yellow color with a very thin head and near to none lacing. The aroma was tart and lemon-like. The flavor was all funky lemon tart, coriander/spices underplayed. Tasted like a Berliner Weisse (but with more tart than lactic acids) crossed with Martens Madonna. The mouthfeel was thin, lightly carbonated.

Shag (3001) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 11, 2006
A spicy lemon aroma. The flavor is rather sour and dusty with a mix of some mouth pukering citrus fruit. The mouthfeel is rather dry. Pretty good wit beer.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded-one. Pours hazy golden with a huge fluffly white lasting head. Aroma of citrus, fermented fruit, champange like nose. Flavor is carbonated, sour, citrusy, not my thing, i wasn’t into this as much as I originally thought I would be. Reminded me of an unblended lambic (Cantillon Iris)

Champagne bottle. Fantastic label. Pours a comically enormous white head with a beautiful bright yellow/straw body. The attack, mid-palate, and finish are all viciously tart, overwhelmingly cherried. This is a beautifully done statement that is simply too far down the path for me. The tartness renders everything else secondary, and that’s imbalance.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Sampled at Broudy’s Beerfest, Jacksonville FL, 3 June 2006. One of the more interesting and enjoyable beers sampled. Complex wit flavor with coriander, yeasty and spicy. Slightly dry and tart. Well balanced. Excellent wit.

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Poured pale yellow with a light frothy head. Nose of tart citrus and mild belgian esthers, some vanilla as well. Mouth was tart but balanced for this style. Quite good.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Thanks to chilehead for sharing this bottle. Snowy froth over pale yellow, light fruity spicy aroma. Crisp and slightly tart, a very drinkable balanced Wit, well done.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Pours with a big, fizzy white head that doesn’t lace. Lots of dark brown yeast chunks floating around. Flavor is interestingly orangy, slightly spicy, dry, and very lactic. It is acidic underneath the strong fruit tones of orange and banana, lime. The nose has a lot more spice. There is a fair amount of oak and husky wheat.
