Borresteijn (6670) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2010
On tap at Beer Temple. Hazy/unclear yellow orange colour, dense pillowy white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander, and really nice citrussy and spicy hops. Flavour is sweet, wheat, slightly malty, citrus, light grapefruit, light spicy, good firm but smooth hoppy bitter finish. Medium bodied, thick oily mouthfeel. Leaves you wanting for more.

glennmastrange (2763) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2011 Bottle. Moderate aromas of grain and hay, heavy lemon for the hops, light earthy, peaty, musty note for the yeast, with hints of apple, oak, corriander and pepper. Head is large, fizzy, white with excellent lacing on the latest pour and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy amber/tan. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then has a long moderately bitter finish. Palate is medium, oily with a lively to fizzy carbonation and finishes dry. This is a nice, bitey Witbier.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JAN 24, 2010
One of the best beers ive ever had, i wih i gave this one the proper respect becasue in fairness to my rating, i was not sober at the time. But as drunk as i was, remembering this one was a light in the fog, absolutely delicious, great orange peel zest and coriander balance in the taste and just enough of a bight in the aftertaste that made this really enjoyable. another great one from mikkeller.

tastybeer (1853) - Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours straw yellow with a gigantic white head that literally laces the entire glass as you drink it. Smell is typical, orange, banana, coriander, yeast. Taste is hoppy with those notes. Definitely the best wit Ive ever tried.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Pours a translucent light yellow with some speckles of yeast. Has a towering white head that is just insane: about four fingers high in the tulip that has insane lacing and crazy retention. It settles down asymmetrically so that some of the head stays in a little island in the middle like a scoop of ice cream. Aroma is amarillo hops, mustiness, orange peel, potpourri, coriander, apple pie. Taste is lightly hoppy, a bit peppery, dry throughout. Light to medium bodied. Very saison like and thus awesome.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Refreshing yet a bit strong for a Wit. Cloudy and honey colored with a thick white head. Hoppy aroma, citrus, yeast and lemon drops. Medium bodied with a bitter finish. Hoppy bitter flavor. Bitterness lingers. Overall as advertised. Definitely not another Wit.
