Drank a whole six-pack at Nizhoni Ranch, New Mexico, thanks Gabe! It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with long-lasting white foam and lace. A true-to-style Belgian Wit, albeit stronger, still a subtle flavour balance, making it one of the best I’ve had by far. Crisp and grainy, soft creamy breadiness from wheat and oats, pepper and clove phenols, perceptible coriander and orange peel but not overdone as usual. Just the right amount of Grains of Paradise spice, which can also be easily overdone. Crystal hops amplify the sweet citrus essence. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, well-concealed alcohol. Complex dry aftertaste. Delicious, no wonder it’s a 3-time GABF winner. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 17, 2017
Sampled at CBC, pours a hazy neon yellow with a ring of white head. Nose has coriander, curacao orange... WOO. Flavor follows, harsh, heavy coriander, banana too. Just overdone. bpreo (2840) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2017
For whatever reason I don’t like it. I think it would be much better if it was cold. NachlamSie (3485) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2017
Can as a gift. This is cloudy yellow with a big head, certainly looks like a witbier. The aroma is not overly estery or sugary, just a stronger smelling wit. Tasteful orange and coriander back up clove, pepper, and wheat. It’s full bodied but not heavily coating. It’s not cloying, nothing is too potent. All the notes of a wit are just turned up a notch in harmony. It’s pleasantly citrusy and spicy. The beer is well attenuated with a medium-dry finish.

Can. Wheat malt aroma with notes of Belgian yeast, coriander and citrus. Pours cloudy pale golden colored with a thin, mostly non-existent white head that also has no lacing. Starts with wheat malt flavors and spicy Belgian yeast. Finishes dry, but smooth with coriander and bright citrus flavors coming through near the end. Pretty nice wit.

Can,pours cloudy light golden color, no glowing white color like a traditional wit. No head, no lace on glass. Aromas of banana esters, perfume, citrus and yeast. Tastes of sweet doughy bread, pepper,alcohol, wheat, yeast and zesty lemons. Under carbonated, creamy,slick mouthfeel, light to medium body and a
dry, tart finish. This wit is ok but nothing special. It’s to sweet and to boozy to be refreshing. The cloying sweetness is very annoying. More carbonation might
help but maybe not. This wit was pretty good on tap back in the day. Popular hipster beer! CarlosTheTall (14) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Nutty, citrus, slight herbal quality. Thick creamy head. Cloudy, tangerine appearance. Spicy on the palate, warm to swallow. Slightly bitter citrus peel flavors. It’s fine for the style, I suppose. Not a spicy beer fan. The peppery burp makes my eyes water. ketchepillar (1198) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Beer #52 of NM 100. Sweet, unfortunately. But nicely yeasty. Sufficiently dry. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 13, 2014
: Tastes like Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy even though it has no lemonade in it. Overall, not my style of beer.
