Poures a huge, fantastic foam! Silky, vanilla flavor with a hint of cherries jubilee. Tastes much better than it smells. I’d like fifty of them, please. Ok, the foam was because I poured really fast and I’m drunk

Light aroma of citrus and spice. Very hazy golden color with a significant white head that laced minimally. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is wheat, lemony citrus, and arguably coriander, which is sort of citrusy (terpenes). Also a bit of sharpish spice (pepper or clove?), very small bit. Really quite excellent. Finishes a bit acidic and dry.

Draft. Poured in appropriate glassware. Pours a hazy golden with a slight orange hue. Aroma of orange zest, lemon and coriander. Flavor is the same. Nice head retention and nice crisp dry finish. Enjoyable beer.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
Hazy golden with a loose head. The flavour has citric acidity, grapefruit peel, and a light honey sweetness. The bitterness is nice in the finish. It’s a wit bier and should as such have citric acidity, but I think this is a bit too much, at least for my liking.

4.1
Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Pours opaque yellow with a thin but cloudy white head and some yeast sediment. Aroma is strongly of lemon with a note of yeast. Flavor is nice and thick with a solid sour lemon flavor. Corriander is present from start to finish with little to no bitterness. Sour flavor lasts for a while on the tongue. If you like either Belgians or sours, make sure you give this a try.

Nice banana smell whic carries through to the flavor. Pours nicely with a small white head and a nice wheat color. If you like Belgian White’s this is a treat!!

3.3
rayOfBeer (680) - El Cerrito, California, USA - DEC 27, 2007
This one was on tap and came out yellowish pale with a quickly fading white foam head with big bubbles. Aromas are mostly of citrus and a little yeast, fading to a slight hot dog-like smell. The taste is citrusy and slightly clovey with banana but not much spice. The lack of spice and carbonation gives off a watery mouth feel. Overall, a good effort on a style I enjoy, but lacks a little something to make this wit on par with others.

Bottle. A pretty decent witte but not to awesome, a little bit too much bitterness without enough flavor? Or something to that effect.

2.7
KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a Pilsner aroma that inspires nothing short of a rating. Flavor of blunted apricot and sweet plumb. Watery mouthfeel. Eh, not bad but I wouldn’t seek it out.

3.4
Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2007
From a bottle--Poured a very hazy straw-yellow-orange body likened to thick grapefruit juice. A decent sized white foamy head that soon dissipated to a wispy topping. Nose of sweet, citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, and peach. Very nice chewy wit, but the finish was a little flat and overall, I like my wits a little drier and tangier. Very nice wheat and yeast complexities that are great any season.
