Hazy golden color. Coriander and oranges. Light body. Very refreshing, but has some strange garbage notes that is not appealing.

Old notes 11/2/09 Draught at Brewery, Canberra Hazy looking straw coloured beer. Holds a small white cap. Spice evident on the aroma, that earthy/woody, slightly sweetish coriander seed character, with a whiff of citrus. Faint hint of husky cereal in the background. Reasonable carbonation, somewhat light and fluffy on the palate, drying towards the finish. More spice on the body, seems slightly dominant, lingering on the finish. Get a bit of milled grain character and citrus as it warms. Low bitterness. Lacking the complexity and balance of a good example, still a passable beer.

On tap at the brewery. Very nice heffe. Aromas of bubblegum and banana. Taste is sweet, with a hint of sourness. Palate is oily, and thin-to-medium bodied. Pale, cloudy, with a frothy head.

On tap at the brewpub. Didn’t think much of this, even though I don’t like Wit’s, so I really wasn’t a fan. the wheat, coriander combination turned me off having my half pint at the midway point. Spices in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2012 Tap. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a lingering head. Aroma of sulphur. Pretty standard wit flavour, but fairly subdued. Light bodied, lively carbonation and a short finish. Was asked if I’d ever had a wit before when I complained about the sulphur.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2009
...on the tap at the place. Didn’t look impressive at first, untill I had a whiff. Nice balanced nose of citrus, dusty wheat, with a small hint of yeast and ginger. The lacing was great, body a little thin, but hey it is a Wit, not a blonde. Flavors of corriander and slight spice to liven it up, finishes dry, clan, and citrus. Nice beer, good effort.

mickmac (486) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2009
Tap. Average white head over a hazy pale yellow body. Floral-citrus aroma and nice citrus-coriander taste. Probably lacks the tartness of some of the better witbiers, but a refreshing and tasty beer nevertheless.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2009
Draught at Wig & Pen, Canberra. Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, clove, coriander and ginger. Same flavour. Quite thin for a wit. OK bitterness in the finish.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2008
Tried on tap at the Wig and Pen Canberra. Pale body with short head. Dull looking. Witbier flavours are there but don’t stand out too much.

strings (377) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2007
On tap. Fairly disappointing. Quite muddy and indistinct. Initial aroma is full of empty promises, a lot more than is eventually delivered to the tastebuds.
