COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American version of the Belgian style. This unfiltered beer has a striking translucent, golden color with white clouds. Seemingly a contradiction in terms, it has a full body mouth-feel but is surprisingly light to drink. Topped with a hint of citrus, provided by Coriander and a secret blend of Humbolt herbs, this beer is slightly sweet and a delight to drink in any season.

Golden color crossed with milky white, white head. Aroma of coriander orange peel, some malt and wheat definitely on the spicier end. Fairly yeasty. Light to medium bodied. Pretty nice, would probably be better if I drank on a summer day becuase it wa sfairly refreshing.

2004 bottle from Hop and Leaf. Picked this one up to rescue me from a potential drain pour session. I opened it, in fact, to do just that, as I was pouring beers out left and right. Unfortunately this stuff was about as bad as the rest, which is unfortunate, because I like the style and enjoyed their 8 Ball Stout. Anywho, it pours a light orange-blonde-yellow mix, with a light haze to the body and a wispy white head. Notes of lemon and coriander are very muted in the nose. Body is immensely watery and the flavor features light orange zest, coriander and a touch of herbs on the end. I get almost no malt sweetness. I keep wondering if I got a bunch of bad bottles, but all of them I chose from the cooler, so I dont know, perhaps they went bad in transit.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Update - I just had this for the first time in a while and it has way to much coriander in it. Overwhelming sweet spice flavor, like coriander candy, really distracting. This hazy golden/yellow beer has a great light wheat, citrusy, apricot aroma, with just a light touch of hops. Taste starts with a fruity sweet pineapple/apricot flavor up front, followed by a lemon drop candy sweetness in the middle. Slight spicing and a mild hop finish round out a great light summer brew. Very smooth and soft on the palate.

DocLock (10465) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Medium gold pour with medium white head. Aroma of hopcit, grapefruit, and pineapple. Tastes fruity, with some hopcit and black pepper. Very complex, but this one does not taste like a wit.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2005
Cloudy golden color with yeast in suspension and a thin white head. Aroma and flavor of citrus and yeast. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Boring.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Cloudy, straw-colored with lemon and perfumy floral aromas. Hints of clove and sweetened citrus flavors throughout. Good blend of spices and fruit gives this an overall juicy quality and makes this a tasty and refreshing beer.

Thin drinking, but more full bodied feel to it when its in your mouth. Very, very evident is the Cascade hops, giving it a distinct grapefruit flavor, as evident as Ive ever found in a beer. A great summer beer.

gsteph (324) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Pours like liquid gold (appearance only) and very hazy. Sticky, thin, white head. Super citrus aroma, wheat and mild spices like every other wheat. Lemon, coriander, and other spices. Overall very subdued, mild flavor but still very refreshing. Not my preferred style, but a good representative of a wit. Not too thick and not too thin. Moderately impressed.
