Sampled thanks to kristen bringing home the christmas pack this year :) Pours a semi hazy straw with good white head. The aroma is a bit boring wheat. But the flavor brings the spices and orange peel. I’d be interested to try this next to their white ale and see the difference? Finish of bitter lemon pith.

Pours a hazy gold, with white head. Aroma of spice. Taste is sort of a spiced up white beer, with a touch of citrus in there too.. Well enough blended, but not one that I’ll need to have much more of. Ehhh....thumbs sideways on this.

Chudwick (3423) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12oz bottle - pours cloudy orange with thin white head and thin lacing. Nose is wet straw. Flavor adds orange peel and dough. Mildly sweet and a tad bitter. A light witbier but hides the ABV well. Would be good with sugar cookies or when devouring a gingerbread house.

TomTron (462) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pours a hazy orange with a minimal white head. Aromas of orange peel and some spice, but very faint. Taste has a moderate amount of orange and citrus, but there is also a big spice presence including the nutmeg and cinnamon. Finishes a bit watery, but it’s drinkable. Rather odd Belgian White. Looks like a wheat beer, but doesn’t taste much like one.

portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy amber orange with a white tight soapy head that leaves a film. Aroma has spice like clove nutmeg and orange rind with yeast. Taste has strong nutmeg, clove and soft, but noticeable orange rind with a bread yeast finish. Palate is medium and chalky with a drying finish. A decent seasonable brew.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 12oz bottle into pint glass. Hazy gold color with orange-ish hue and thin white head. Aroma is whit sweetness and spices, mostly cinnamon and some nutmeg. Wheat flavor and spices went together well for me. Light body, easy holiday drinking. Not bad.

Sampled at the grocery store. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is spices. Taste is cinnamon, nutmeg, a little ginger. The spices are balanced by the wheat.

Bottle. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a super thin white top that dissipated seconds after pouring. Taste of spice, coriander, citrus, lemon peel, nutmeg, and maybe a slight bit of cinnamon. Overall this isn’t a good representation of the witbier style, but I still enjoyed it. Slightly above average brew.

Scipio (1272) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a bright and hazy yellow with a white head that evaporates quickly. Aroma contains cinnamon, orange, lemon, banana, and spice. Quite pleasing. The taste is generally what I was expecting from the aroma. The lemon and orange citrus come out most along with the cinnamon. Cinnamon in the aftertaste, but this does not last long at all. Light in body, with a fizzy texture. This one is alright I suppose but nothing approaching special. However, you could easily do worse.
