12oz can poured into Duvel tulip. Appears to say BEST BY 09/13/19 printed on bottom of can. Which gives this at least 3 months of freshness. Got it at the grocery store as part of a $10 six pack mixer.

Appearance - Big white head with decent retention and inconsistent but decent lacing and strong stick. Opaque yellow-orange body similar to the color of he can. 4

Smell - Grass, rounded fruit up front and spices I can't quite pick out on the back end. 4.25

Taste - Tastes like a typical macro witbier, except with a bunch of spice. Might go good with certain food pairings, but it's very drinkable by its lonesome. 3.75

Mouthfeel - Gives some throat burn. Not exactly extremely spicy, but it's up there. Medium to full bodied otherwise. 4

Overall - Definitely find a food to pair this with. It's interesting but not a session beer. 3.75

22oz bottle from Susan's Fine Wines & Spirits (Santa Fe, NM). 9.99. Bottled 6/22/16. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours a soft, pale yellow with two and a half fingers of white head. Thin wisps of retention extend toward a bubbly crown which imparts some beautiful lacing, especially where that initial cap of froth rested.

Smells of spicy Belgian yeast, orange peel and coriander. Distinctly Belgian with some beautiful accents.

Flavors are simultaneously bitter, sweet and spiced. Apple skins, orange peel, grainy wheat, tangerine, berry seeds, coriander, citrus flesh, faint honey and a kiss of alcohol warmth. This is borderline confusing but I like it. There aspects of several styles that come through and I think it works well.

Full, round body with pleasantly understated carbonation. Notes of honey wheat, fruity Belgian yeast, citrus and coriander ensure that the finish is just as interesting as the rest of the experience.

My first brew from Marble exhibits some deft brewing. I consider White Out a brilliant mash up of wit, wheatwine, Belgian strong pale ale and IPA. A uniquely interesting brew that is well worth a try for the journey of flavor.

I am drinking this Witbier right now at the Marble brewery. It is a quite complex Witbier with lots of flavors mosaic hops, fruit, citrus, sweet, coriander, orange peel, and overall a very well balanced and unique blend. It has a pleasant spicy orange aroma and a nice golden orange cloudy hue with a white head.

Reviewed from notes (5/28/2015) - 22oz bomber into a plastic hotel cup.

Hazy orange peel liquid; 3 fingers of magnolia foam - firm whipped peaks, good retention, sticky lacing.

Potent hop aromatics (mosaic more than citra?), orange peel comes through clearly as well plus a hint of white pepper from the yeast.

Wonderful marriage of bitter, fruity, and spicy hops to a sweet malt base with coriander and curacao adding characteristic accents. Classic wit profile with the hops dialed up considerably.

Hop bite is magnified by the heat from the alcohol.

Didn't care much for their noisy bar, but between this and the intense stout I took away, the brewer's skill more than makes up for any deficiencies of the venue.

Thanks to ONovoMexicano for this one from the NBS BIF #2 box. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a hazy pale yellow color with just a thin cap of white head that managed to leave very good lacing.

The Belgian-y yeast aroma was the first thing that appeared, right at the crack of the cap. There was a very limited malt/grain aroma, but some piney hops fought a noble battle against the power of the yeast. Pretty similar situation on the tongue, but the grain does provide a bit more of a base, and a bit of citrusy hop notes show up on the back of the palate.

The body was light medium, and finished clean and semi-dry. Drinkability was good, especially if you like the mash-up of hops and yeast, which, admittedly, isn't my favorite combo. Overall, a pretty nice beer that's worth trying if you see it, even though it didn't quite push my personal buttons. If it sounds interesting to you, it would certainly be worth trading for.

Huge tropic fruit aroma initially, juicy Citra/Mosaic, some wheat and subtle hints of tartness and oak. As it warms the aroma evolves heavy Saison yeast elements of spice and banana. Flavor is a complex array of Saison/dry hopped pale ale and wit/wheat. Juicy and dank tropical fruit hops are showcased throughout the beer. The finish is semi-dry but flavors of fruit sweetness linger. Crisp, well carbonated to move the complex flavors across the palate. Really, this is just a fantastic beer and incredibly easy drinking at 9% ABV.

Served in a Munique glass at Marble Brewery on the release day.

Arrives with a finger thick frothy, pale white head that looks delectable and thick enough to spread over a cracker. A solid wall of lace runs down the glass's sides as it recedes. The body is a glowing golden/straw mix, cloudy in appearance with some faint orange hues. 4.5

Quite a unique nose in that it's got a good dose of juicy citrus, orange juice or grapefruit, plus melon and pineapple, followed by spicy yeast. 4.25

Yeah, it's juicy. Lots of melon to be found. But it's also got a spicy, zesty, peppery and floral middle that is complemented by a touch of grapefruit. Medium sweetness and malt thicken up the body and complement the yeast and hops well. 4.25

Potent yeast feel, zest and pepperiness, as well as a somewhat bitter and dry mid to finish. Sweetness is appropriate and sets a good balance. The beer is juicy and refreshing but also quite hefty. 4.25

Quite a beer! Plenty to take in but it's all lovely.
