12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Cloudy pale yellow hues brew, great looking lace. Light aroma with some spicing and bready malt. Lighter bodied with sufficient crispness. Maltiness comes off a little wet, like cracker-like tone meets a modest orange peel and coriander tone. A decent try but not much pops here, still worth a go if you are into Witbiers.

Small head, especially for the style. Little lace--just some spots. Mildly cloudy with an orange-gold color.

Sour and wheaty to the nose. Reminds me of a lightly soured lambic.

The flavor is light with a bit of orange rind sourness. I find it refreshing but not complex. It has a semi-sweet, but short, aftertaste. Good body.

Pours a cloudy, whitish-gold hue with a one-finger head into my glass. I wonder if this is the same recipe as their Wit?

A mix of clove and coriander stands out in the nose. Nice and light.

Robust with lots of clove, coriander and a slight touch of pepper. Crisper than their standard Wit recipe.

Finishes clean with only a trace of clove.

A very nice interpretation of the witbier. It's cleaner than their traditional Wit recipe.

Bottle from Hannaford part of the summer 12 pack.
Pours a hazy dark straw color with a huge fluffy bone white head that persists forever leaving plenty of stickies on the way down the glass. Bready malt with light floral and lemony hop aroma. Light hint of something sour in there as well, I imagine old lemon juice. The flavor is light bready spicy malt with bits of lemony citrus. Light body with a moderate level of carbonation and a watery crisp mouthfeel. There's not a whole lot going on here, its an easy to drink light brew, but frankly a bit unremarkable.

Don't expect too much for this beer I wasn't wowed by Limbo so here we go.

A - Well that head fizzed out rather quick. No lacing to speak of. Color is a mildly hazy bright yellow.
S - It has some lemon with a bit of dry fruity yeast and a touch of spice corandier.
T - Very light and refreshing touch of lemon and zest and a bit of wheat and some fruity yeasts. A decent witbier.
M - Light to medium. Crisp and easy to drink.

Overall I am not sure I love it but it's a decent witbier. Not sure the low rating its tasty enough with no hard water taste.

12 fl. oz bottled on 02/26/14. Sampled on March 21, 2014 so it is pretty fresh.

It pours lemon yellow with a modest fizzy white head and as the name declares - mostly cloudy. Active carbonation.

That aroma is juicy orange, soft wheat, biscuit malts, and mild spice. It has the characteristics I expect in a witbier.

The body is light and refreshing.

Even though I get orange peel and coriander on the nose, its punchiness is more forward in the flavor along with a bready and sweet character. Dry and spicy finish.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sour lemon smell mixed with a good amount of a biscuit aroma. A bit of wheat bread and some coriander as well as a little bit of orange and a light grassy smell are there as well.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather dry flavor, with just a bit of a cracker flavor and a bit of yeast and coriander spice. As the flavor advances a very light orange and lemon flavor develop on the tongue bringing just a hint of sweetness and sourness to the profile. Along the same time, a bit of graininess and some light grassy and moderately hay-like flavors develop on the tongue as well. The yeasty flavors grow stronger as the taste moves to the end, leaving a rather bland and dry flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. With little flavor, an even higher carbonation and thinner body may have been more appropriate for the brew.

Overall – Not a brew I would go to again. For the most part it was very low on the flavor profile with the flavors not even really being that good. While I understand that at 4.7 % abv. that I will not get a flavor powerhouse, this one is actually less flavorful and more offensive then most low cal. brews.

Turbid straw-yellow with a rich cap of bleachy white head that rose to about two fingers' height. Lacing is a pretty sight.

Orange slice citrus with some lemon, a bit of coriander, clove, and pepper. Standardized Belgian witbier yeast and zestiness. Wheat malts have a good presence, too. Smells sweet and musty.

Very much spiced, with a lot of coriander and notes of cardamom. There's distinct bitter orange flesh and peel and a chalky yeast that works to get drying. Getting notes of hibiscus and chamomile tea in here, also. A wildly floral take on a Belgian staple.

Easy to drink. Wet-bodied with subtle carbonation creeping in and back out. Pretty simple, but okay.

Pours a lemony gold color and has a hazy body. A fluffy white head sits on top. It fairly tall and lingers a good bit before fading away.
The aroma is very much coriander and as with most wits, it dominates.
The taste is similar to the nose with a big coriander bite so others flavors include yeast clove and pepper.
About standard for the style, over use of coriander.
