Had this as part of the sampler. Ordered on my birthday 3/16

A - Looks like a good Hefeweizen very hazy orange yellow with a 1/2 inch of sticky white foam.
S - Has a distinct orange and orange peel smell. Some spice but very faded. Most of the fruity smell seems to be from the yeast.
T - It was actually pretty good a much smoother "Blue Moon" taste. Has the sweet orange and bitter peel, really no spice or coriander, and a fruity finish. Like Blue Moon without the hard water taste.
M - Light to medium very drink able.

Overall its not world class but easy enough to drink. In my party someone even compared it to Hofbräuhaus Hefeweizen which has an 87 rating on this site.

one of the regulars here. pours thick milky yellow pale color with a two inch dense fluffy white head. the nose is heavy wheat malt and belgian yeast with a touch of orange rind to it, bitter and acidic, refreshing. the board says corriander, but i dont smell or taste it at all. taste mostly the yeast and the wheat, which work well together. its not a huge bold yeast, but its got some girth as well as some light peppery and floral flavors. carbonation is great but the body is massive for a witbier. its not as sessionable as it might be because of its density, but the finish is long and fruity, with a hint of bitterness. not a bad beer, but certainly nothing too special. it does go good with the calamari though, yum!

A- Pale golden with a thin white head. Fairly hazy. Head retention is fairly poor for the style.
S- Aroma is quite peppery, with some wheat and some light lemon and banana flavor.
T- Up front there is some lemon with bubblegum flavor. It's slightly plasticy as well. A bit of pepper in the finish.
M- A bit watery for the style. Carbonation is assertive up front but fades quickly. I like it when wits finish dryer than this one does.
O- It's a decent beer but it's relatively run of the mill.

On tap at Rock Bottom La Jolla.

A: Slightly hazy pale yellow with a big white head.

S: Aromatic coriander blends with orange, pear, and banana. Belgian yeast notes are pervasive. There's a little lemon.

T: Sweet orange with much coriander. Light banana with some pear. Moderately sweet with a strong Belgian yeast profile. There's a little lemon with evident wheat.

M: Lower medium body with lower medium carbonation. 

Overall: Pretty good. I haven't been big on coriander lately so this is not my thing, but it's not a bad beer.
