Not bad they seem to have chosen the spice route and leave the fruit out of the equation. I think for this style of beer at least a hint of fruit is crucial. Everything else about this beer is pretty good.

I have yet to figure out the apparent affinity to this brew. Orangish color with a modest off-white head. Aromas of citric urinal cake. Doughy scents with some lemon curd. A bit metallic and alcohol is not hidden. I find this one a wit hot mess. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Keg at Whole Foods Wauwatosa. Clear amber, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of wheat, tea, spice, coriander.
Taste is wheat, spice, coriander, mild tea. Medium bodied, crisp, mild lingering spice. tia (2228) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2016
Can at the comedy club. A little hint of gum in aroma and flavor. Fairly high carbonation. ChadPolenz (1847) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 30A Spice/Herb/Vegetable (base style: 24A Witbier) Nuffield (4199) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2016
AROMA: Light chamomile tea notes; slight orange juice. Floral scent. Nose is mild. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Apricot pale orange/amber hue. Very cloudy body though no visible sediment. Small, white foam. 2/3
FLAVOR: Strong honey flavor throughout which is boosted by alcoholic presence. General orange/coriander/tea flavor combination. Some vanilla essence at the end. Has a flavor of cinnamon-dusted cookies, too. Sweet but not cloying. Spice could use a boost. 17/20
MOUTHFEEL: Thick, full-bodied mouthfeel. Not syrupy as it finishes surprisingly clean. Alcohol does play a major role in the palette and body; warm throughout but tolerable. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Very interesting and delectable palette. A bit boozy, but quite drinkable. Not very reminiscent of a witbier, though. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 39/50

I thought this was perfectly fine. I like sweet (to a point), and the dominant sensibility with this beer is its rich, thick body and prominent sweetness. Good fruits, wheat. A big can is a bit too much, but in smaller portions it’s very good. Can.

Flavoeful beer - very floral and fruity and spicy aroma, especially. Drinks big for a wit, both due to the intense but enjoyable flavor and higher than normal abv. 16 oz can. tompete (348) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
On tap at Parkeast Hotel bar. Almost clear gold with s fast disappearing white head. Aroma is alcohol and malt with a subtle fruityness. Flavour is very rich, but refreshingly thin and alcoholic. A little like bourbon. Finish is smooth. commonshawn (1321) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Tap at aster cafe during stone arch festival. Really nice color, hazy yellow light orange. Fruity nose. Thick and boozy for this style. Sticky. Taste is funky citrus and maybe a little off. Unusual for a wit bier. I’m on the fence on this. bierstein82 (13) - - MAR 2, 2016
Out of a can. Light green tea like aroma, chill haze golden yellow. Kinda has a rock candy like taste. It tastes off a little but in a pleasant way. Lingers a little bit with a light coating on the tongue. AidenMoore (12) - Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Be careful with this one. It drinks a lot lighter than it is. I can easily crush a few of these and then stumble away from the bar. Great beer.
