Its 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.

The noses meets with a sweet orange aroma and bread. A slight bitterness counteracts the sweet orange leaving the mouth with a yeasty character. Not as spicy as I would expect and a little on the yeast infection side of beer.

Christian (13069) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2008
Hazy pale yellow with a big white head. Coriander dominates the aroma which also has some fruity, yeasty pineapple and orange. Sweetish and spicy flavour, maybe too sweet and too much coriander for mu taste. But a smooth and drinkable beer.

I tried this beer on May 20, 2008 at "Smokeless Joes" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a hazy yellow orange with a finger-thick white head that lasted throughout. The aroma was yeast, malt, and spicy sweetness. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and highly carbonated, almost sparkling. The flavour was wheat, yeast, and some sweet malty tones.

Draft at <a href="http://www.5thearlmarket.com/"> Earl Market in Decatur. Pours a very cloudy yellow with some notes of tan. There were a few white bubbles, but no real head (it likely faded on its way from the tap to my table). The aroma has some grassiness and mustiness, some wheat character, and a light sweetness with some spice. The flavor starts wheaty with a subtle tartness and some coriander spice. At mid-palate the beer is dry and wheaty with a subtle hop bitterness. The beer finishes dry with flavors of orange peel and spice. The mouthfeel is crisp and medium in body, and it is particularly dry at the back of the palate. Overall, a great and authentic witbier.

tomer (3254) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAY 17, 2008
0.33L bottle. small stable head. Murky ugly light yellow colour. Aroma dominated by wheat and banana with a trace of something smokey. The flavour is made of banana, vanila and a touch of citrus and spice. It is quite dry with just a touch of sweetness developing into a lingering sweet and sour finish.
