Pretty standard witbier, which I happen to love, but this one has chamomile in it. This addition was a huge negative for me and ruined the experience. Among all these usual layers of flavor that are associated with a witbier, this sole flavor did not work for me and had quite a negative impact on the overall flavor, which was very good if this one point was taken away.

Would not purchase or drink again.

Dreadful taste. Can't even describe it... Laquer or turpentine maybe. Not funny. Not funny at all.

Looks good and the mouthfeel is right but this sucker is my first drain pour ever.

Here’s one I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed yet. Glad I checked.
This pours a clear gold with a cottony cap of white clouds.
The aroma has a pleasing orange-lemon-citrus note to it, and a hint of coriander.
Tastes clean and clear, with a refreshing quality. It’s a wheat beer? But with an English ale yeast? I liked it. Easy drinker.

Pours a hazy orange body with a small white head. Aromas similar to Belgian witbier but differs slightly due to replacing Belgian with California yeast. Sweet wheats with a lot of camomile and touch of coriander carry beautifully from the nose to the palate. Smooth texture and herbal tea finish make it even more exciting. Good stuff!

Bottle I brought to share at drewone's tasting.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, floral, spice, herb, and citrus-like aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal, spice, and floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earthy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting earthy ingredient presence that comes through slightly better in the smell.
