On Tap at the Brewery, or Bruery if you want to be specific. Pours a very pretty orange with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and lucious, with tons of fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity, with some spice, extremely balanced and overall quite delicious. KimJohansen (10511) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2008
Cloudy golden with tiny white head. Sweet yeasty aroma with wheat and orange notes. Sweet flavour with notes of yeast, fruits, wheat and malty notes. Malty and full bodied for a wheat.

Bottle shared by wolf. Thanks. First off this is better then the regular white. Nice floral notes, little spiceyness in the taste. Touch of apples. Easy to drink, low carbonation level. Good beer. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Growler from the brewery. Thanks, RiversideAK. Hazy medium gold with a thin white head. Candi sugar and a bit of green apple on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Lots of green apple on the mid-palate, creamy fruit juicy flavors. Mild finish. Its a bit too retrained to really stake out any particular flavor profile as its own unique territory, but its beautifully integrated and very drinkable. Interesting stuff.

On Tap. Pours with a small white head and a hazy yellow-gold body. Aroma of coriander candi sugar, clove and some pear. Taste is alcohol, yeast, corriander, clove and yet very nice to drink! Full mouthfeel with lively carbonation. can8ianben (1577) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2008
The head brewer admitted that he screwed up a batch of Orchard White and that’s why they ended up with the Imperial version. Hilarious! I think I liked this more than the regular Orchard. I think the ABV is off - they mentioned it was pushing 10% I think... Big and rich, fruity, loads of yeast presence, and noticeable alcohol presence.
