Sample. Rating #27. Lightly hazy golden yellow pour with a nice white head. Light citrus aroma, wheat and a little spice. Flavor is strange, kind of musty, hard to put my finger on it. (2420) JK (6249) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2009
"Belgian Style Witbier" strikes me as as strange name for a beer, it is more of a description than a name, as if to say, "we didn’t want to put the full effort into a wit, so here is our Belgian style wit." Clear gold color. The yeast is right for the style, and some coriander, but this is too thin and the flavors are too light. nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Draft at the Milwaukee location. Cloudy orange appearance. Minimal head. Smooth and mellow, with some light spiciness that becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Somewhat watery, with a mild citrus edge. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 8, 2008
On tap at Water Street - Delafield. Poured slightly hazy paler golden with a dusting of white head. The aroma was bright and sour with orange zest leading.. spicy white pepper and light banana esters were not far behind.. the sourness kept this from being inviting. The flavor was sour again with wet wheat and orange rind upfront.. light bready backing was rather well buried.. light peppery spices were somewhat refreshing at the finish. Light-bodied and sour throughout on the palate.. dried out at the edges.. lots of carbonation.. not a bad flow, but the sour character took this down several notches.

Sampled on draught at GTMW ’08. Pours a semi-hazy golden blonde brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and ring. Aroma of white bread malt, a touch of coriander, some flowery hops, cloves and some banana ester. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of white bread malt, some wheat, yeast, coriander, orange zest and a touch of tropical fruit. Finish is light with a mild wheat and coriander aftertaste that quickly disappears.

Split a pitcher with cblado and family /friends for his birthday at Oakland Trattoria in Milwaukee. This was my first witbier. Nice light coloring with scents of fruit, especially orange. Not as complex as a fruit beer, however. Good thirst quencher. cblado (298) - Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2008
On tap at the Oakland Trattoria in Milwaukee. Appearance was a light golden color, some lacing. Aroma was yeasty, scent of coriander and fruit. Flavor was malty, with a not-unpleasant fermented apple taste. Palate was a bit thin. Overall not a bad Belgian witbier. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Not exactly what I expected from a belgian witbier. This did not have the full yeast complexity that i would have expected from a belgian. This tasted like a decent hefe-weisse but that’s it. Bland and unexciting. would add more coriander. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Agreed that there wasn’t a whole lot of wheat flavor in this one. It had a decent hazey yellow body with a small off white head. But carried very little wheat flavors. Aromas were sweet and floral. Slightly watery mouthfeel. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the downtown brewpub on 6/21/07: Pours a cloudy pale golden with a thin covering of wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of pale Belgian malt with a touch of floral hops, coriander and faintly bready yeast. Body starts a little thinner with a lightly bready texture and a mild lemon citrus flavor and doughy, but not very sweet malted barley and wheat. Finishes drier and semi-tart, although easy-drinking.
