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.

Sampled draught at the brewpub.
Hazy pale yellow. Generous coriander aroma, Sweet and firm with rounded mouthfeel. Light flavoured but solid, perhaps on the sweet side.

Slighlty cloudy, smallish head but it left nice lacing. Lots of coriander notes, and a bit of orangey citrus in the back. Body is pretty thin.

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.

Medium clean wit, rather sweet nose. Cloudy light gold , small crown . Quiet light , smooth with clean body . Some malt like aftertaste. Due to thin body alcohol is visible. Hard to believe that this is 12 P. It feels more like 10.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2005 On draught at the brewpub, 6/3/2005 with tiggmtl, muzzlehatch and Bret Kuhnhenn. Pale-white-gold, with some light lime green and slight yellow tints to it. Thoroughly cloudy with a small white head that dissipates very quickly, leaving some lacing behind. Aroma of fresh coriander, bold and spicy. Sharp citrus notes foretell the flavor and there is a good amount of hops apparency, relative to style. Flavor starts out with coriander and citrus and then BAM, near the end and climaxing on the finish is a huge acidity. Almost like lemon sorbet, it really opens your eyes and is quite unexpected. Wheat-like body is smooth and carbonation is light and tingly. But either the hops or spices or both really create a spectacular sharpness on the finish. Quite yeasty on the end as well, with some very light doughy pale malt notes. Medium-body, little to no thinning.
