bottle. pours a white, hazy yellow with a thick fluffy white head. aromas of citrus, banana and a touch of spice. very soft over the palate with some bitterness on the front, while thin on the sides. nice finish with the hops coming through and some spice. very good for this style, which I’m not a huge fan of...

DietPepsican (1591) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 13, 2008
hazy yellow-orange pour with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is very powerful orange and citrus, with a bit of tea and yeast. Flavor is up front pear and orange, wheat, some more tea, creamed corn, cellar, and some cheese. Finishes slightly dry with a mild sweet mouthfeel, a touch of acidity keeps the sweetness in check. This is very good.

11.2oz bottle-pours a thin white head and cloudy brown/straw color. Aroma is over ripe medium fruit, light malt-caramel, barnyardy, yeast-slight banana/coriander. Taste is over ripe medium fruit, light malt-caramel, barnyardy, yeast-slight banana/coriander. Drinkable. 2.7 OK, before I drank this, after I got home from the store, we see it has consume by 04!!&*%#[email protected]@#$. So I am adjusting the rating towards the average. One month later jwc215, at another store finds this. Manager ‘we just got this in from our distributor.’ Gets home, consume by 04. Both stores-in NJ about 60 miles away from each other…3.5

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2008 Bottle: Smells is a clean, crisp, fruity lemon aroma...Hazy orange in color with a big head that stuck around. Flavor is orange, spices, banana, lemon and some other fruits. Quite refreshing. Light texture and easy to drink. Overall an enjoyable beer. Maybe a new summer time favorite!***Update*** Now that I have had a good amount of witbier’s I can say this is best witbier out there. The most flavor and the easiest to drink. I wish I could get this on tap or fresh it would be even better.

It’s been awhile since I had a nice wit, so the delicate nature of this one caught me by suprise. The lemony yeast character was constrained and balanced by a stream of spices and sweet fruit. The appearance was a dull yellow, cloudy with a nice fluffy three finger head. Mouthfeel was spritzy and bubbly, with a clingyness to the tongue. Flavors were mostly citrus, spices and a nice sweet malty crackerness to it. Very nice.
