Thanks again for sharing, Bobby.

A: The pour is a hazy light yellow/straw color with just a small white head.

S: Starts off with a very bright citrus and citrus peel aroma. There is a lot of wheat and some light spices, which is pretty much how I like my witbiers. It's very fruity, which is sort of surprising. And of course, there's a bit of yeast.

T: The flavor is also very fruity, which you don't normally expect for a witbier, but I think it's great. Heavy on the citrus with only mild spices. Lots of wheat bread and sweet malts with a touch of yeast.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: This was very light and refreshing and had very nice aromas and flavors. One of the best witbiers I've had.

12 ounce single from Bruisin' Ales in Asheville, North Carolina. The first digits on the 'Brewed On' date are smudged, so, it's either from August (08) or all the way back in March (03).

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, flaxen-hued body with just oven an inch of sturdy, whitish foam.

Smell: Soft aroma of wheat berries with welcome notes of wildflower honey, savory spice, and fresh orange peelings.

Taste: Lightly sweet, lightly tangy, honey-hinting wheat malt, maybe some pils malt in the mix as well, given a slight yeasty dough character. The sweetness is complimented by a spicy whole coriander taste and a zip of zesty orange peel. A bit more citrus and fluffed wheat for the easy-going finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: I enjoyed it. Tasty and refreshing all the way down to the final sip.

The beer pours a delightful light gold, showing a bit of suspended material and a nice rising bit of bubbles with a thin white head and lacing. The aroma is faint but it's a nice blend of spices, malt, and yeasts: one can pick out coriander, citrus, flowers, and grasses. The taste has a nice wheat base with the spices running over the top. The feel is right on target, nice and smooth with a wet start, but then closing with a dry rush and hint of hops.

I was down in Surf City, and ran across this at the grocery store. So glad I decided to try a 6 pack of it. A very nice flavorful Wit, that has that light touch you so want in one.

a - 1 finger head and a cloudy pale orange/yellow hue

s - pleasant malt and lemon zest. Nothing too sweet or overpowering

t - very earthy and yeasty. Extremely well crafted and complex for the style. Very mild on hops and malts, floral notes and yeast prevail.

M - Very full bodied and butter for what is usually a watery style

O - This is a very well made Witbier. Highly recommend and will try to find again whenever possible.

A 12 oz bottle from Chip's. I like what I've had from Mother Earth thus far.

A: The witbier is hazy, a golden yellow color that could glow, I think, if it were filtered. The haze dulls the beer out a bit. Three fingers of stark white head slowly oozed over the side of my glass and left plenty of lace behind.

S: The nose is full of tart wheat aromas, sweet coriander and orange peel. A full dose of strong scents that makes me anticipate the first sip.

T: A well-spiced witbier. The coriander grabs hold and the ale never shakes that flavor. Sweet citrusy orange follows with as strong a flavor as the coriander. These two flavors, in tandem, are strong and lasting, leaving a dryness in my mouth that instinctively requires another sip. Peppery flavors come through in the finish, along with the wheat tartness. The bittersweet orange peel flavors also come through in the finish.

M: A very refreshing witbier. The spices are turned up to 11, controlling the ale's destiny until late in the finish when the wheat and orange peel return. Nicely down.

D: The best beer of the lot so far. A citrusy blast of fresh pepper that is quite good.

12oz bottle into pint glass.

Pours a hazy straw color with one finger white head.

Nose is wheaty, peppery, lemony, and with a hint of coriander.

Taste is sweet like honey, with strong coriander and citrus flavors.

Moderate carbonation (could be higher for the style), full-bodied and well rounded. Lingering sweetness that doesn't detract from beer.

Overall a very pleasant beer. Great nose and flavor. Significant flavor profile while still being very light and drinkable. Will seek out in the future!

served to my self a little warm. oops. had just put it in the fridge and became impatient.

straw to yellow appearance, very clear, very still. large fluffy head that drops to less than a quarter inch after a couple minutes.

smell is like the mist from an orange being peeled. sweet lemon spray too. delightful.

taste is of coriander, sweet orange, and pale stuff. absolutely no off flavors, fully refreshing and delicious.

low carbonation, medium body, quite pleasant. looks can be deceiving as the mouthfeel is pretty substantial.

i cant wait for summer. i can picture my self relaxing on my porch with a six pack of these, not wanting to be anywhere else.
