12 ounce bottle poured a hazy light yellow color with aromas of citrus, coriander, spice, and some light wheat. Flaovrs are the same, light spiciness in the aftertaste, decent witbeer overall.

jkwood04 (5448) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 12, 2013
12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of light spices, a little wheat, hints of hops, and light malts. Flavor the same, with everything pretty light. Light to average texture. Not bad but not great.

Hazy yellow, white head. Nose cinnamon, spice, ginger, and gum drops. Easy palate, heavy spices, followed by cinnamon, wheat, and light fruit.

nearbeer (5360) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2012
12 oz. Hazy orange-golden with a quarter inch of lasting cream. Nose is dry cracked wheat, lemon zest and a touch of nutmeg. Taste is similar with the nutmeg and lemon zest taking more of the lead on the wheat. Some orange flesh in there as well. Medium body is soft, well-balanced, and tingly-dry on the finish with the spices and acidity. Seems to be exactly what they set out to achieve. Not bad, but my taste buds seem to be overly sensitive to nutmeg and this one nearly approaches my limit.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Sampled on 4/16/2103. This Witbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy with orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. A medium to light bodied wit bier. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and sweet. Decent carbonation. The spices compliment and help offset the fruitiness and sweetness. Crisp and clean. Very drinkable. A somewhat different winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Hazy bright orange colored body with a whispy thin bright white head. A doughy nose of oranges and clove spice. There is also a little bit of spice like cinnamon. This tastes of orange peels and light clove spice. A dough like taste throughout. The body is a little thick and dense. Pretty good for a wit.

rumproasts (5339) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2013
bottle. Hazy gold with small head. Mildly spiced wheat beer. Pleasant but not particularly noteworthy.

3.4
Bamsen78 (5327) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Bottle at Ungstrup’s. Pours slightly hazy pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of flowers and nutmeg with subtle hoppy notes. Dark, sweetish and spicy aroma of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, hops and malt. Sweetish aftertaste. Nice.

2.8
Aurelius (5287) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Almost clear gold, medium white head, standard Sam label and bottle. Musty, cinnamon aroma. Light spice, some mineral flavors, lightly bittered, a little sweet, light diacetyl. Medium body. Leftover from the office Christmas party.

2.7
hotstuff (5139) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Rated on 10-31-2013 (Bottle from Kroger’s Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This beer pours a huge smooth off-white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is wheat, malt, orange peel, citrus, sweet, and a suggestion of spice. The flavor is sweet, wheat, malt, orange peel, and lightly spicy. The mouthfeel is watery and thin and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a very watery and thin tasting beer. It has very little character and is bland tasting.
