Very nice witbier. Solid Belgian yeast notes. I enjoy this style, and this is a good representative thereof. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draft at uber. Gold pour, white head, some lacing. Aroma - lemon citrus; floral; some bananas and cream. Reminds me of furniture polish (I mean that in the best possible way). Taste: lemon meringue pie; light pepper finish; wheat in the middle. Palate: light body, average carbonation; texture is a little thin/flabby. Overall: okay wit - don’t see enough local brewers doing a wit. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2012
22. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a loose white head. Big fragrant pleasant sweet nose, showing banana, cream, and a bit of dust. Creamy medium body with decent carb; goes a little flabby in spots. Caramel, banana, and cream on the mid palate, giving way to a pleasant white pepper quality that carries the finish as well. nice, but the promise of the nose doesn’t carry to the mid palate or the finish. Body could use a little more sparkle. bhensonb (15191) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dishwater gold with white bubbles. Aroma is quite fruity, but more spicy. Near full bodied! Flavor is wheat, banana ester, mixed citrus things. It’s more dry than not. The nose is very pleasant. It’s a pretty good drink - for a wit. killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2012
22 oz from Chuck’s @ $7.99. This completes my flight of Lantern Brewing beers. Kind of wish I didn’t finish on the wit. Smells like a bunch of overripe bananas and tastes pleasant enough. Slightly peppery, but also slightly bland. I suppose that is what a wit is supposed to taste like? I should really bone up on my BJCP style guidelines.

Sprightly ginger ale carbonated appearance. Wonderful wheaty and coriander aroma. Refreshing, and redolent of the seashore as warm night cools. Refreshing on the palate. Balanced, sprightly, medium-bodied, and oh so quaffable. Nice balance of white wheat and breezy coriander. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle: Straw, small and large sediment floats about, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing. Soft wheaty nose, a bit spicy too. Remains wheaty on the tongue, spices are there but a bit more subdued than on the nose. Falls off quickly, but it is clean. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes with faint lingering spices. Decent example, less mealy than other American examples. Not quite Belgian, but a decent summer quaffer. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2012

Golden in color, hazy thin white head. Nice witbier flavor and aroma. Wheat forward this was a very tasty Wit.
