Such disappointment--this was a beer I had sought out deliberately for its category-topping rating in the Witbier category. But--indeed as its makers claim--this represents the birth of a new category. Yes, the cloudiness, the esteryness [restrained, primarily coriander] are there, but theres a whole lot of IBU-straining bitter here too. Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy. Like wit for the West Coast IPA-heads, i guess...not my thing but props for originality ($14.99--pricey originality)

Shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy light gold with a massive white head and a floral fruity aroma. This is truly not a typical witbier. Its a little darker with a more substantial malt flavor and a nutty finish. There is noticeable hop bitterness.

750. Pours hazy orange with a 4 finger clingly, foamy off-white head. Light citrus/spice aroma. Medium body with spritely carbonaton. Drinks like a Belgian ale rather thean wit. Seems to have cardamom. Nice beer.

Interesting. They claim to be the first IPW and it is a true mix of IPA and white bear. On tap at the Beer Temple.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2010
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, glowing, golden-orange color. A small but lasting head of frothy, off-white foam is circled with a thick rim, and leaves sticky, pronounced, splotchy lacing on the glass. The aroma is based in fresh, sweet dough and golden wheat, with notes of lemongrass, oily lemon peel, bitter coriander, and creamy citrus chiffon. Flavors are sparked with bright lemonpeel notes, hinting at pithy bitterness and soft, peppery grass, all over a malt base of golden wheat and clean cereal. A surprisingly ultra-grassy hop-burp hit me a few minutes after the finish. The palate sports a medium body that is relatively dry, with a lightly fizzy, persistent carbonation throughout. Solid brew, and better than expected.

From a bottle poured a hazy straw color with a good amount of head. Spicy malty sweet flavor with a quick finish.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2010
On tap at Beer Temple. Murky yellow body with nice white head. Nose of wheat and citrus. Quite a funny drink with white beer, sure, but also quite spicy. And hoppy. Nicely done and goes down very well.

Borresteijn (6873) - 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 (2828) - 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.

750ml bottle, drank in Jan 09. Poured golden, clear. Massive white head, great lacing. Aroma is hops, orange, lemon and yeast with a hint of spiciness. Flavor is pretty much the same, nice bitterness.
