3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold with bright white head. orange and coriander aroma with a tiny bit of funk. The flavor is fairly well balanced with some dryness up front and a sweeter malt finish. Not sure why the other ratings were so low, it almost sounds like a different beer.
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of light malt and orange citrus. Dirty cloudy medium amber color, white head cover, no lace. Taste is tart orange and malt that adds a burst of edgy carbonation on the swallow followed by light spice and bittering in a long finish. Not really in the Witbier tradition, and not quite balanced or appealing enough to have more than one.

330ml bottle with most, but not all sediment added in the pour, leaving the body clear but with light hazing and some visible particulates. Large bubbly head soon dies down to a top coat.
Malt, citrus and yeast dominate the spicy aroma. The flavor adds mild bitterness and more orange and lemon notes.
O: excellent, complex and a bit funky for style. Alengrin (5376) - BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2014
Somewhat special witbier, at least bolder than the Hoegaarden standard, with fresh orange peel used and dominating the nose, very refreshing, fluffy and soft mouthfeel, wheat sourishness, lots of citrus again but not over the top, coriander as usual, very thirst-quenching. Has more body than I’m used to from the style. Very good example, firm and characterful. Bill Becker (1037) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 28, 2014
A great looking brew with a 2 finger head of foam sitting on a slightly hazy golden liquid.
Spicy as heck with big coriander, cloves, wheat and orange.
The taste is a tad milder than the smell. More of a balance between the spices and the orange fruit. Still, it’s testing my palate.
Nice mouth feel for the style.
This bursts with flavour but it isn’t something that I’d seek out again. Jojojam (65) - Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a moderate. hazy dull yellowish. A one finger soapy head. Lots of lemon on the nose. Hundreds of tiny fast bubbles. Medium mouthfeel. Light creaminess. A little prickly from the carbonation. Nice sweetness looming on the swallow. Dry finish. Very refreshing.

11.2oz bottle, from Party Source. On close out, from $6 to $2. Shared with b3shine. Cap says Lot 91. Good orange and spice in the nose. Smooth, kind of soft, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate tart, sweet, kind of tangy taste. Solid belgian yeast character. Baked apple, light spice. Mildly hazy orange color. Thin off-white head, doesn’t leave lace. Solid belgian wheat beer, much better than expected. Get a lot of the wheat and (organic) orange. Better than expected, overall. b3shine (8874) - Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2014
11.2 oz bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks good for the style; a slightly hazy golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells semi-sweet with notes of Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a fairly dry, pleasant mouthfeel. Maybe a hint of apple too. Enjoyable. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2014
Amber with white head. Aroma of yeast. Flavor with spices and added sugar. Some wheat. Bubbly thin palate. ryanfolty (2553) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2014
January 25, 2014 - bottle shared by Jake. Clear golden pour with some head. Aroma was grainy, sweet and a touch sour. Taste was consistent with aroma. weihenweizen (3827) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown squat bottle poured into a glass. Pours light amber with off-white head. Tangy aroma, medium body, well carbonated, and thick small bubble lacing. Taste is tangy, coriander, apples, over ripe oranges, and spicy. Rich flavor, but just ok.
