Fruity and herbal wit beer. Lots of Belgian, passion fruit, and coriander. Not terrible different from most wits. It was fine for a vacation beer.

Strangebrewer (1298) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2016
bottle. Poured hazy gold with a skim white head. Tart lemony aroma. Light-medium body, lower carbonation with a creamy mouthful that finishes tart. Light bready malt, flavour of lemon, coriander, herbal hops. A bit bland.

Onslow (1481) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Pour from a 12oz can. Slightly cloudy pale golden brew with small head. Aroma of Belgium yeast, some banana as it warms - maybe a little tropical fruit and a little metal. Taste is sweet at the start with modest banana and Belgium yeast overtones, Ends on a somewhat sour note though with some coriander and little orange peel emerging in the finish. As a hybred Wit / American Wheat this seems to take after the Wit a little more than the Wheat, but somehow doesn’t manage to express a clear presence. But this is light, refreshing, Belgium-ish with a decent ABV so while not outstanding it certainly is enjoyable.

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. First glass without a lemon slice, glasses two and three with one. Rating based on glass with lemon slice. Brew is a hazy light yellow with a nice, fine bubbled, white head and average head retention. Aroma of bitter wheat, light spices, and yeast. Without the lemon taste was wheaty with a somewhat off balance bitter finish. Lemon really balances the flavor and creates a finely balanced brew, wheaty body with a nice crisp but lingering bitter bite in the finish. Very satisfying mouthfeel. A very good wheat ale.

weihenweizen (3751) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from clowoisseur poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy golden small white head. Aroma is light topical fruit, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is orange, coriander, some banana, and tropical fruit. Might be some hops for balance, but not hop prevalent like most wheat ales, more like a Belgian White. Pretty good.

Bottle. Poured hazy amber color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate wheat, spice and citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Murky, highly carbonated light golden orange pour. Smells of wheat, citrus and belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells, a decently refreshing summer brew.

rumproasts (5342) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2014
bottle. Golden with ridiculous head. Way too carbonated, there’s something wrong here. However, the underlying beer isn’t bad. Some nice wit elements of tropical, citrus and spice. Lightly sweet. I’d have this again if they could get the carbonation under control.
Earlier Rating: 7/27/2012 Total Score: 2.6
golden with small head. generic wheat beer. some lemon zest, but quite average.

2.8
hotstuff (5144) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 10-25-2010. This bottled beer pours a medium sized very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, transparent yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, wheat, citrus hops, musty, and some fruitiness. The taste is semi-sweet, malty, wheat, lightly fruity, and citrus hops. The mouth feel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has no WOW factor to it and the flavor is somewhat bland tasting. There are better beers of this style.

2.8
HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12 oz bottle, from rating notes. Pours a hazed golden pour with a styrofoam white head. Aroma of citrus zest, wheat malt, touches of bread and lemon. Flavor is mostly citrus, mild bitterness with wheat sweetness. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel with effervescent carbonation. Overall, middling at best wheat ale.
