guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2016
Cloudy, yellow appearance with an average size white head and little lacing. Grassy, grainy, spicy aroma. Flavor tracks more toward the traditional wit style as the yeasty esters pair with wheat and spices. Slight vegetal aftertaste., Light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a short lived finish.

Ysok02 (1763) - Mons, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Une blanche classique avec une belle robe trouble, une mousse peu abondante, un nez à la fois fruité et épicé et une bouche digeste et équilibrée. Bière de soif pour bien commencer la soirée.

GenDV138 (7579) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2016
5 oz pour on draft at Barrel & Bushel, Tysons Corner Center. Hazy pale yellow with off-white head. Aromas of herbs, citrus, coriander. Tastes of light banana, herbs, citrus. Light body with a dry finish. Very solid wit, would definitely recommend this to someone as an alternative to the macro witbiers like Blue Moon.

This was sampled at GABF 2015 in Denver. This rating is from my tasting notes and somehow I skipped over this Brewery. So while delayed here it is. In the the tasting glass was hazy yellow with a white foam cap. Hose of citrus and light coriander spice. Medium body. The flavor is citrus and the coriander is retrained which makes this a very easy drinking and quite delightful beer. Dry finish. I liked this one a lot.

Bottle. Pours very light golden almost no head. Smells of light lemon and grass. Taste is light lemon, a bit of bread crust, light leaves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
