Very pale, slightly clouded yellowy appearance. Fruity, herbal aroma. Very herbal, spicy palate, low on carbonation which takes away a little, coriander. Pretty complex version of a wit. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Bottle from LP, thanks!lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2005
Pours an expected white hazed golden hue with a small fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of saffon, corriander, hint of clove, orange peel, lemon zest, bready malt, and a touch of belgian sugar candi. The taste starts quite twangy with a rush of lemon and orange that linger towards an acidic sour finish. The spices are a bit too subdued for my liking in a wit but you can taste them as the bier opens up and warms. A faint amount of sweetness is there as well with a cross of malt and candi, additionally some rose hips and minor bitters are noticed. The feel is lively, a bit crisp and refreshing. Don’t drink it too fast or you will miss something. Still I would like a touch more spice.
Hazy orange-yellow color with bubbly airy head. Touch of sweet wheat in the nose with hint acide-tartrique, corriander and some spices aswell. Smooth taste but a little too sweet for the style. at best whin served very very cold. Thanks Bello for sending me this beer. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 13, 2005
Pours an "electric" yellow color, with small white head. Aroma of lemons, oranges and a little zest/rind of the previous two. Flavor is refreshing, with lemon corriander and wheat, a "sugary" sweet mouthful. Very easy drinking brew. Thanks to PDee for sharing this one.

Hazy orange tea. Lovely aroma of bitter curacao orange peel and coriander with other hints of pulp, lemon peel, and butter toffee. Characterful spice flavor but not much malt flavor. I really like this style of beer and this is a very unique example, but I still feel that the best example of the style has yet to be brewed.

Funky, sour lemon aroma. Thin head, good traditional pale yellow color, a little cloudy. Medium bodied. Taste is very citrus, but also quite bitter and sour, especially towards the finish.More lemons. Leaves a long sour aftertaste. A very funky beer.

Draught, at the brewpuboldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Hazy straw colour, a bit darker than the pilsner. Fruity, apple juicy aroma with a hint of coriander. Sweet flavour, with an almost gruity herbal note - very orangey, too. Sweet pale malts like sugar. Body is light. An odd example of the style.
Pours golden with a thin white head. Has aroma of yeast and tastes of yeast and honey. Not bad. Worth trying. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Pale gold/yellow with a small filmy head and big spots of lace. Aromas of sourdough and yeast. Bitter hops and bitter orange peels. Almost an acrid smell. The flavor mimics the nose almost to a "T". Very watery, seems dirty in a way. Finishes sour.
