poured very nicely, light head, a bit thin feeling for a wheat beer. My experience is nearly identical to tectactoe's. It had thin, sharp taste for a wheat as well, with a crisp slightly citrus flavor. Every time I took a sip, I was trying decide if I liked it, but it did fall into the "okay" category for me.

Pours a thin head on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is a fresh clementine and orange smell with some dry grain in the background.
The taste is a little watery, citrus sweet with a little pine bitterness.
The texture is soft and fizzy.
Enjoyable.

Pours beautiful golden color with ample amount of fizzy, lingering head and lacing. Aroma is fresh citrus/orange. Taste is refreshing with citrus and hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is carbonation and cool citrus. Overall, not bad !

Golden color with a thick head with medium retention. Got a bit yellow whitey after the residual yeast was poured. Better looking than usual.
Predominant aroma of orange peel and tangerines with hints of coriander and bread.
Refreshing flavor with notes of oranges, tangerines, coriander, white pepper, citrus hops, C vitamin and finishing with some yeast chalkiness.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Very good Witbier with lots of spices and citrus flavors. Flavorful and with interesting choice of citrus hops (Summit) that matched perfectly. Recommended for style and better than references such as Hoegaarden.
