Simply. Amazing. Perfect color. Big, fluffy head. Aroma is banana and cinnamon. Sweet citrus and clove flavor. Wonderful, light body. Awesome. weihenweizen (3890) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Refrigerated 75 cl poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear golden with big fluffy white head. Little lacing, light body, well carbonated, and lavender aroma. Taste is tart coriander, some citrus, and finishes with some lavender. This is a pretty good beer until the lavender finish. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Pours a murky pale yellow with fluffy head with a touch of lacing. Aromas are zesty, forward and very floral. Im getting alot of the lavender in both the nose and the flavor profile. It teetering on too much but it is riding the line of highly enjoyable as well. Backed with some nice wheaty citrus undertones to counterbalance the lavender. burg326 (5489) - Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2012
750ml bottle that poured a cloudy pale yellow color with aromas of banana, lemon zest, and some coriander, a classic wit beer aroma for sure. Flavors are wheat, lemon, some banana, hint of clove, with a slightly yeasty finish. hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Pours a very pale golden color with a huge frothy white head. The aroma is spices, cinnamon, apples, lemon, and Belgian yeast. The taste is spicy, dry, tart apples, citrus, and some soapy/lavender notes. A very interesting Witbier. I’ve never really had anything quite like this. Good stuff.

A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down extremely slowly leaving behind some thick lace on the sides of the glass.
S - Aroma is full of wheat and lemon with some coriander and other spices, yeast, and a bit of orange zest.
T - Starts off with a mix of lemon zest and wheat with a touch of spice and yeast character. Through the middle, some stronger yeast and coriander and other spices come through with some more citrus. The finish is a mix of wheat, yeast, light spice, and lemon and other citrus zest that linger.
M - Medium-light with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, spicy, and yeasty finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced Witbier with some great citrus flavors and the right amount of wheat. JStax (6917) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter. Appearance is hazy gold with an enormous white head of foam. Magnificent head retention and nice lacing. Aroma is barely spicy, I get a fruitiness from the orange peel, and a heavy presence of lavender. Prior to tasting this beer, I really thought lavender would work well in a Witbier. I was wrong. This beer was so overpoweringly lavender-y that I seriously considered pouring it out. If you really love the taste of lavender, or laundry detergent, this is the beer for you. I don’t think I will ever buy this beer again. It reminds me a lot of Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat in the fruity pebble-ness it portrays. drunkenpolack (319) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Orchard White pours a golden color with a small fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The smell is pleasant and is full of coriander, citrus, banana, lavender, Belgian yeast and wheat. Really surprised me for some reason.
Taste is crisp and refreshing. It has more of a lemon presence that I didn’t really get in the smell. Mixed in there are the spices, citrus, wheat, and yeast. Like I said it’s really nice and refreshing. Would go well on those hot California days. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, and has a nice bit of carbonation. Another good beer from these guys. callmemickey (4549) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Cloudy yellow body with a massive white head. Good retention. Decent lacing..
S: Fresh fruit. Lemon, banana, and coriander are the main accents to a solid wheaty backbone. Alcohol isn’t noticeable.
T: Similar to the nose. The wheat base is present throughout. Lemon and coriander are up front, with a slightly yeasty finish.
M: A bit fizzy, medium body. Dry, refreshing finish.
O: I shared three bottles over the course of a few hours and couldn’t complain. PotjeBier (3457) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2012
(From notes) Bottled, sample @ The Bruery (end of 2009). Not quite Belgian style witbier (lavender), but nice and refreshing, with a herbal finish.
