Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick foamy white head. Nice citrus nose with burnt orange, coriander, and lemon pith. Flavor is pretty much what you’d expect for a WIT with a bracing citrus hoppiness followed by a bit of spice with a crisp, dry finish. Decent beer for the style, but not one that differentiates itself. kassner (1657) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2013
On tap at mojos on Bald Head Island. Light golden color with a nice fluffy head, the hops are crisp and funky, just the wheat makes it seem a little thin. ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Hazy yellow/orange/white, not great to look at. Makes up for it in the aroma, nice orange notes. More orange in the flavor and some grainy tanginess. Not particularly bitter, so avoid if you buy into the whole BRÜTAL PALATE DESTROYER fad of over hopped beer. The palate is one of the best I have ever had. Smooth, thick, and delicious. Lingering citrus notes leave a pleasant aftertaste. Draft pour. HighlanderOne (1317) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Poured from bottle. Aroma of hops, malt and ocean. Cloudy gold, thin white head with some lacing. Floral and citrus hops, some creamy malt, pepper. Aftertaste is off - not sure what it is, but it doesn’t taste right and hurts this beer. Too bad cause this could be a great beer. KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2013
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky straw yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thin puddled film and medium collar with excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, resin and citrus hops and a sweaty Belgian yeast with a note of citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a bit of coriander.
The taste was lightly sweet and fruity with just a touch of spice early on, progressing with a nice citrusy hoppy taste, along with a strong grainy yeast presence and a citrus peel bite towards the finish. The flavor hung around for a good long time following the swallow with the bitter citrus peel taste fading ever so slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a couple steps beyond light in body with a dry, creamy texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall this was a tasty and well balanced brew with a pleasing spicy citrus favor and a nice creamy drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Bottle: Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a creamy white head. Aroma is slight pine... citrus. Tastes citrusy...but not in a really good way... the wonderful yeasty character of the wheat beer is competing with the hops too much I think... Improved a bit as I was drinking it, but not an awesome beer. Nice idea... but I’m not sure the styles were meant to mingle. neur0 (1233) - GERMANY - SEP 20, 2013
(Flasche) Es hat eine zitronengelbe Farbe; ist sehr trüb mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist fruchtig, Himbeere und Mandarine mit einer starken Süße. Der Geschmack ist ist süßlich, schlank und fruchtig wie das Aroma. jfb (6234) - GERMANY - SEP 20, 2013
(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of coriander, thyme, wheat, herbal hops, nettles and light peppermint. flavour is mostly wheat, yeast, light coriander and gooseberries, with a hint of bread dough and herbal hops in the light-bitter finish. light-bodied with average carbonation.

On tap @ The Pony NYC. Really cloudy almost hazy orange golden in the glass and it has a small quickly islandy off-white top. Smells OK with a little fruitiness, a good dash of hops and a little buzz of grapefruit and grapefruit zest. Lots of hops here, lots of citrussy flavors. Mild oily on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is just below average. Light grassy and also light dry in the finish. Quite easy to drink, nothing spectacular but still quite good. 19.06.2013 shigadeyo (3730) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
9/02/2013: Saranac White IPA... Aroma has musty wheat malt with hints of orange; dirty, messy dark golden color with an off-white head; Moderate honey/biscuit maltiness, oat mellowness, citrus-soft melon in the middle, terrible, off-putting, sharp smooth, bitter orange peel/pithe in the finish; average bitterness level overall; semi-creamy mouthfeel, medium-body; yep, definitely no a fan of this one either; IPA and Witbier just don’t work together, in my opinion... [12 fl. oz/ bottle from Jungle Jim’s in Fairfield, Ohio.]
