3.59/5  rDev -0.8%

Appearance: Very hazy golden yellow, with vigorous, fine carbonation, and a large, dense, and persistent white head, which retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.

Aroma: Bready wheat malt and coriander dominate the aroma. There is a mild note of orange rind as well.

Taste: Opens with sturdy notes of wheat, soon followed by a mild tart note. As the taste progresses, the coriander dominates. Late in the taste, there is a mild surge of bitterness. Finishes with a slight, lingering bitter note at the back of the mouth.

Mouth feel: Fairly full, with zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A very pleasant and drinkable example.

Presentation: Packaged in a short, custom eleven point one-ounce brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

11.1 oz bottle poured into an Adelbert's snifter. Batch 001, bottle number 118. Bottled 3-2-12.

The beer pours a hazy straw color with a large, fluffy white head. The aroma has quite a bit of coriander and wheat in it, with a little bit of orange peel thrown in. Smells about like I expected it to. The flavor is fairly heavy on the wheat, with a little bit of lemon and orange. There is also some lightly toasted malt and a little coriander. Thin to medium mouthfeel and a soft, medium carbonation. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Thanks, wagenvolks and xpimptastikx!

Hazy golden witbier with a mild aroma of wheat and very mild citrus. Mildly expressive flavors of wheat, mild coriander, moderate bitterness, and floral notes. Tasty, though with a bit too much carbonation. Nice enough witbier--very drinkable.

3.96/5  rDev +9.4%

Starts with a huge head, foamy and cream-colored. The liquid is cloudy and orange and wheat colored, but still very close to white and pale.

The aroma of clove and banana immediately hit me when I crack the bottle and some sweet maltiness and wheat are present as well. I get much more on the tongue, particularly tartness and lemon, then the banana and clove, a wheaty back end, some slight pepperiness and spice.

I appreciate the light body on this beer and how easy it is to sip. The carbonation is strong, but there's still some creaminess. The beer finishes semi-dry with a tingling sensation from the yeast.

I'd have more of this in a heartbeat. It was good on this semi-cold New Mexico evening, but also would go great in the warmer months.

4.08/5  rDev +12.7%

A- Hazy, brownish pear color with plenty of loose yeast in suspension and plenty at bottom of bottle and glass. Thin, quickly dissipating white head leaves no lacing.

S- A bit sour (my brother and co-taster agreed). Coriander and a light citrus.

T- Much more complex than smell indicates. Sweet with a hefeweizen type bubble gum flavor and aftertaste. Orange/citrus flavor is more prominent.

M- Light-bodied with dry afterfeel.

O- Had Scratchin' Hippo at a beerfest recently and actually poured it out. This is a much stronger effort. A bold wit that i recommend you seek out.

3.69/5  rDev +1.9%

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of coriander and orange peel are present in the nose.
T: Very much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of orange peel and coriander, the latter of which stand out in the finish.
M: It feels just about shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice amount of orange peel and coriander. It feels a little too spicy and heavy on the palate to be thirst-quenching.

Note: Batch No. 11, Bottled on 6/5/2013

3.45/5  rDev -4.7%

11.1 oz beer in a Belgian 'Duvel-esque' bottle with a bottled on date of 03/02/12, batch 001. Pours hazy, dark gold color with a slightly pinkish hue. Small white head is as white as can be and shows some decent retention but not much lace.

Smell is...well...different, thats for sure. Not a whole lot of soft coriander and the orange peel is strong, a little pithy even. Has a subtle sweetness, but the spices are heavy on the aroma, a little mint even creeps in.

Taste is a little more integrated, but I am still not getting much of the coriander to help soften the sharp citric fruit peels...maybe orange, maybe a little lemon zest too? It plays along fairly well as a whole, but some of the parts have me wondering what the brewer was trying to accomplish. The mouthfeel is rather thin, and it has some sort of herbalness to it that tastes a little like sage or rosemary. It is an interesting take on the style and I enjoyed this bottle, but I dont think I will seek it out regularly. At 1.99 a bottle, it is well worth the gamble.

12oz stubby sent as an extra by ThirstyHerf. Batch 1, bottle 1129. Poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy orange-gold with a nice tuft of white foam. Decent retention, no lacing.

S: Soft perfumy yeast, coriander, vanilla, pale malt.

T: Mild coriander, cakey malt, floral spice, a bit of citrus, big wheat in the finish.

M: Lively carbonation, light-bodied.

O: Not the best wit I've ever had - a bit weak. Still pretty nice.
