Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, yellow body with a smallish, frothy, white head.
Smell: Slightly tangy scent of wheat marked by citrusy notes of lemon zest and orange peel. All the while there’s a strong scent of coriander spice.
Taste: Altogether tangy taste of wheat with a subtle sweetness before the big kick of coriander hits. Again, some tastes of lemon and orange. Minimal hop character with only a mild bitterness present. Finishes appropriately dry with lingering tastes of citrus zest and peppery coriander.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus, lightly effervescent carbonation.
Drinkability: Pretty good! An enjoyable witbier with a particularly bold spice character to it suitable for all kinds of outdoor, summertime activities - hiking, water skiing, and even badminton. Cavie (4874) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2010

Cloudy gold in appearance with a decent white head. Aroma is of malt, citrus and yeast. Taste is of yeast and citrus. patrick767 (4474) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2014
bottle - This brew has a tart, citrusy, yeasty aroma. It tastes sweet and spicy, maybe a little too sweet, and has a light to medium body and a lively palate. Overall it’s a good wit.

Thanks to Douglas88. 12oz twist-off bottle. 6% ABV. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Nice belgian yeast aroma. Sweet pale malt aroma. Some banana bread, some distant lemon. Flavor is bready, nice wheat malt character. Some lemon, lime zest, coriander, and a crisp hop. A "lighter" clone of Chimay White? maybe. IrishBoy (4252) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011

12oz local bottle. Good beer but seems a little outside the normal Belgian witbier class. Maybe a little too much wheat, banana and lemon. Refreshing and a fuller than expected mouthfeel. LilBeerDoctor (4229) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light tropical fruits and wheat. Flavor of yeast, melon, slight clove, and sweetness. Nice and drinkable. A pleasant witbier.

A vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass summons forth both a lemon-like / coriander scent and a frothy initially three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a fairly clear gold color that shows a brilliantly though not quite clear, straw-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is all spices with notes of lemon, a touch of earthy coriander and a finish that has a touch of malt character with a cracker-like grain note.
Somewhat sweet tasting (for a Wit), with a medium’ish body that has enough heft to just cling to the palate after each sip, but is still pretty quaffable.. Spicy with notes of white pepper, citrus zest, and a slightly phenolic finish that reminds me a bit of ginger, but there is also a bite of coriander. While this beer is very spice dominated, some of the fermentation character comes through and contributes to the overall spiciness. There is a touch of woody character that couples with the earthy black pepper and coriander spice notes. As the beer warms a bit more the citrus character becomes more characteristic of orange zest.
Not a bad example of a Wit, it leans towards the citrus side of the spice spectrum, which I definitely enjoy. I prefer my Wits to be a little drier and a little more tart, but this is well within the style parameters.
