12oz bottle sent as to me as a extra.

Pours hazy orange with a three finger white head. Smells of bready yeast and some orange peel. Tastes like a wheat beer....big wheat taste up front which fades to orange spices and a slight hoppy aftertaste. Mouthfeel seems a little gritty with high carbonation. I'm not a big wheat fan but this is pretty drinkable.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a semi-hazy golden color. The head is a finger high (white in shade) with crap retention for the style. Only tiny splotches of lacing are left on the glass.

S: This has a nice scent of orange peel, which is seemingly augmented by candied sugar. The two notes coexist quite well. There are subtle touches of coriander floating around, along with (dare I say?) Fruity Pebbles. All in all, a decently fruity witbier, but little to amaze the senses.

T: The flavor profile is much the same as the nose. Mild orange peel opens things up, with a closing hit of coriander to finish this off. As I continue to sip it, I realize what's missing: a good wheat character. The adjuncts are handled well, but it needs more wheat flavor for this to succeed.

M: Rather thin for a witbier. I'm missing some of the soft creaminess I like in the style - instead I get a slender coarseness to the texture. Having said that, it is well carbonated and easy to drink.

O: Not bad. It's not entirely successful, though: it's thin, and suffers from the insipidness other average witbiers tend to have. It'll get the job done, but there are a lot of better wits out there.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a thin, white, one-finger head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Sweet yeasty aroma. Hints of fruits, lemons, and coriander in the background.

T: Strong wheat flavor with and overall sweetness. Lemony and coriander background. This doesn’t really taste like a Witbier.

M: Medium body and low carbonation.

O: Good brew – just not a typical witbier that I am used to.

12 oz. bottle -> DFH snifter/chalice. Got this as a single in a mix six pack within the last month. It's been in the fridge since. After investigating it appears that this beer is retired?

A - Bright clear orange, bright white head, little to no lacing, head disappears to the edges quickly.

S - Yeasty, light orange citrus, little bread sweetness

T - Same as the aroma but with a touch of spice, maybe coriander or cloves. Finishes very tangy with a long after taste.

M - Feels thin

O - This is an average representation of the style. It's just a tad above "ok". Does that make sense? It's easy to put back, but the lasting aftertaste makes you not really want another.

Pours a cloudy, light golden liquid with a thin white head. The head disappeared quickly. There was some lace on the glass at the end. The smell was slightly floral and spicy. Tasted slightly sour, followed by a hint of spice (perhaps corriander). To be honest, it needed a bit more spice. Mouthfeel was light bodied, with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Overall, this beer was refreshing, however it needed more flavor. Sort of a watered down white beer.
