ben4321 (6001) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/6/14

Aroma: The aroma of this one is full of wheat, lemon, and lots of spice
Appearance: The pour is a murky gold-orange, with a fizzy off-white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of spice and lemon over wheat malt flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively-to-fizzy carbonation, and a spicy finish
Overall Impression: Somehow I waited until May to pull this from the fridge. I wasnt overly impressed by this beer. Theres too much carbonation and too much spice for it to be particularly drinkable, and the flavors are only alright.

decaturstevo (5943) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma of wheat, a corn like aroma, corriander, and a light brown sugar. Flavor is corriander, sweet wheat, and some spices I dont know. A bit thin and fizzy but ok for the style/beer that it is.

JK (5940) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottled. Terrible beer. Nothing like a wit at all, some light haze, but none of the customary flavors or aromas. Some adjunct malt sweetness. Just awful.

thedm (5936) - Fredonia, Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty mild malt and mild wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow herbal aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild lager mild wheat mild hops herbal and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Bottle from Beer and Wine. Bold orange body with medium head. Nose is funky, citrus, enjoyable. Taste of hops, fruits, cinnamon and spices, Nice and warming finish.

nuplastikk (5898) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2012
12oz bottle. Unfiltered yellow-tan body with a thin, white head. Cinnamon dominate overspiced aroma. Wow, this is 100% overspiced, reminds me of some of the more awkward US saisons from a few years back. Whereas a good Wit is subltle and delicate, this is heavy-handed and brutal. Lacks any semblance of balance...the spices kill it. Try again.

dwyerpg (5829) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Get a faint orange in the aroma but mostly its wheat, from the first aroma to the last drop. A nice loft to it, but one is enough due to the heavy wheat body.

RobertDale (5784) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 24, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain, citrus, and spice. Taste is wheat, citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. Too many spices. Just OK.

mansquito (5720) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is spice, banana, wheat. Taste is very light not very full of flavor witbier. I was in no rush to take another sip meh.
