Run of the mill wit, on-tap at the brewpub. Taste the wheat, and the yeast. Substantive coriander. Yellow beige with lots of lace. Bitter finish. Grassy hops.Herbal tea and lemoney and a tad astringent. Significant carbonation.Try the higher gravity brews.

Pours a cloudy yellow/white. potent head with a big orange and citrus smell. Pretty mild body as far as wheats are concerned, but the yeast is very detectable. a lot of spices come through in the after taste, especially coriander. i feel the coriander has a little too strong a presence. my buddy mentioned that the aftertaste was a lot like bologna. I'll have it again though

On tap at the Bastone Brew Pub.

Poured a medium and lightly hazy yellow color with a very small sized white head. Aromas of spices, wheat, and bananas. Tastes of bananas, spices, light lemons, and wheat. Light lacing left on the glass. Thin body.

I thought this beer was a good example of the style. Essence of orange peel and just the right amount of corriander make this an enjoyable beer. The cloudy-whitish appearance was appealing. My only major disappointment is that even though this is a wheat beer, it lacked body and real character.

A standard but solid take on the style. Light yellow and very cloudy.

They seem to do with less coriander and peel flavors than normal, and there's more of a citrus juice flavor. Good blend of sweet and bitter flavors.

Medium bodied and fairly easy to drink. Would recommend to anyone just wanting to try out the style. I'm not a huge fan of Belgian whites, but this wasn't bad.

Cloudy and a dull straw yellow colour with a thin, white cap. It produced some streaky lacing, but not too much of it. The aroma was all bananas, coriander, and citrus zest. The flavour was more of the same - lemon/orange and banana - with some sour wheat and spice. Light bodied, lowish carbonation. The texture was a little soapy. Easy drinking and tasty.

Poured from tap.Cloudy yellow / white body with intense head. Aromas of orange and coriander with a slight hint of banana. Flavors of wheat, orange peel, coriander and a bit of spiciness and yeast character. Smooth drinking and beautiful color. Lace left on glass. Very refreshing.
