Attractive orange-tinged amber color in the Ciney snifter with a modest foamy cap. Quite aromatic but hard to identify. A little sticky even though the body is light.

Malty and wheaty. I guess it does taste slightly citrusy, though blood orange is an unusual taste that is not as "orangey" as its relatives. Something gummy and woody. Rather bitter with a citrus peel taste. It's the maltier sort of Wit, and perhaps less refreshing than the typical sharper examples.

Not bad for a flavored Witbier. It manages to keep the light toasty taste along with the fruity tang and hint of lemon. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington. (664 characters)

Poured a cloudy orange body with no head. Overall impression of appearance is of a glass of Tang, it really does give that impression. Scents of coriander, clove, white pepper, a medium-light aroma of orange is also present along with soft grainy malt and a hint of tangy wheat. Overall impression of aroma is of an alright witbier, nothing amazing, with the blood orange taking a very small role. Flavor begins softly sweet with notes of soft malt mingling with a light orange flavor and hints of coriander and clove. Middle opens up further flavors of orange, but the orange is Tang-like, with supporting flavors of tangy wheat and white pepper. Finish is medium-dry with notes of coriander, softly sweet malt, tangy, grainy wheat and light orange. Aftertaste is grainy malt and bready wheat. Overall impression of flavor is of a typical, very boring witbier with just a touch of orange adding a little bit of flavor, but not much. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Overall impression of flavor is of typical witbier. Overall this is simply a witbier. It does nothing amazing for the style, and even amongst other witbiers it comes across as boring. It is not terrible, but it is very boring, and the blood orange does little to help. (1,277 characters)

Pours a very short, fizzy head with short retention leaving only a small collar. Very cloudy and light orange. Smells like Belgian yeast and has mild orange background with notes of cloves and spices. Belgian yeast jumps out first, followed by bready and malty flavors. The blood orange takes a very minor role in this beer, and is too faint to name the beer for, in my opinion. Feels wheaty, lighter side of medium body, with no real heat. Tingles tip of my tongue. I like the tart feel the best, of all qualities. Otherwise, not a bad beer, but not enough orange flavor, I feel. $3.75 for a bomber. Not my favorite, but not a bad deal either (643 characters)
