beerguy101 (5364) - 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.

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.

badgerben (5328) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Dark orange color with a large, quickly falling head. Strong ginger aroma with a solid nutmeg backing. Strong wheat flavor, lots of nutmeg. Light cinnamon. Heavy carbonation.

chinchill (5319) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 A 12 oz. bottle dated best by March 2013. Pours hazy yellow to light amber with a small white head. Subtle, spicy aroma with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, bread dough and citrus. The taste largely follows the nose, with some nice winter spicing and bready flavor, It is rather tart too. Medium-bodied; medium-light carbonation that works well. O: Good version of a holiday spiced Belgian wit.

2.7
hotstuff (5258) - 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.

Aromas of orange and spice. Flavor has too much orange, I didn’t care for this beer at all. White beers aren’t high on my list.

2.9
DialSquare (5131) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2014
12oz bottle from Lowes in Hickory. Gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is nutmeg, coriander and citrus. Tastes are zesty citrus, wheat and typical winter spices. Kind of a strange mix. Little yeasty in the finish.

ads135 (5031) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 17, 2012
This was okay. The sweetness of a wit with the spices of a wit. If spicing had been more aggressive and backed by some hoppy bitterness, this would’ve been better, but it is definitely drinkable. Tried at Neil’s in 2012.

2.2
travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Clear look, bigger foamy white head, and golden in color. The smell is wheat, very spiced, heavy and artificial like, and yeast. The taste is sweet, si heavily spiced to the point of icky, and sticky.

3.6
kidmartinek (5007) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Cloudy tangerine color with a white head that’s short-lived. Thick, yeasty aroma with lots of fruity esters. Tastes like a BPA with a little gingerbread spice. Pretty good. It’s a bit thick, but there’s really not much else bad to say about it exept for the wimpy head.
