An unclear light orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of wheat, but also notes of coriander and banana. The flavor is also very wheaty with notes of oranges, banana, and hints of coriander, leading to a dry wheaty end.

Drinking this, I interpreted it as a fusion between a German Hefeweizen, with the malted wheat and banana flavors, and a Wit, with the spices especially coriander - which the description also states, though it is listed as a Wit. I never found a fusion wheat that I really liked.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Tap. Hazy golden in colour with a think white head, some lace. The aroma was of light spice, bananas, cloves, lemons and some soft perfume. The flavour was of bananas, spices, white pepper and light spices. Dry mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes soft and light, clrean and very refreshing. Quite nice.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy yellow, light head, light lacing. Nose of fresh coriander, honey and lemon, light husky wheat. The flavor is yeast, lightly acidic, some lotion. Finishes tangy, a bit too sharp, not enough body.

jsquire (4397) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap at the pub during the 2005 RBSG. Very hazy yellow with a white head like beaten egg whites. Spicey nose. It seems a little thin with flavors of weak orange juice and some corriander and pepper spiciness.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2005
I reallly liked this one. ANother refreshing brew to help get over my hangover in montreal. Also made very well to style. Pours a hazy very light yellow and a nice thick white head and good lace. Aroma is citrusy with lemmon and orange peel and possibly some coriander. Lots of wheat and herbal hops in the flavor. Slightly sweet, crisp and dry finish.

07.09.05 Tap at brewpub. Total haze, fluffy white head lasts, sheets. Light banana. Some mineral, kind of salty for a wit. Light body but finishes unctuous.

Oakes (17172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Light yellow, opaque. Marshmallowy aroma with light citrus. Spicy flavour, sweet and marshmalllowy. Finish has a slight tartness and sharp sweetness.

3fourths (9322) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Marshmallow fluffy nose, full of semi-sweet lemongrass, orange peel sweet hays and more. Palate is chalky, sticky, dry, sandy, that sort of thing, which is odd for a witbier. There’s a mellow lemon and cream yeast flavor, with some wheat husk and bread notes. Murky yellow body turning to lemon colored and bright in natural light. Some funk in the nose at times, like sweat, I guess a little musky, that would be the only downside.
