This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving a glazing of lace roaming around the glass. The smell had a nice sweet sticky orange and blended citrus rind. A light spice around the coriander helps to balance. The taste took the orange and citrus to combine with the spice to develop a nice refreshing lead into the aftertaste and leave a wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent crisp sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but seemed to smooth out a light citrus rind bitterness over my tongue delicately. Overall, this one was good, Americanized, but yes, good.

Pours a cloudy yellow with nice foam and minimal lacing. Smells of citrus, to be honest the smell is very muted, I cannot get much out of it. The taste is very good, good orange notes with wheat/honey and mild carbonation. Overall a very enjoyable beer, excellent for summer months and out by the lake fishing, very nice. Wish it had a little more depth of flavor but as a whole a nice beer.

Cloudy golden-orange color. Minimal head. Aromas of orange and wheat, with a taste profile that matches. I really like how the orange is just a hint, though. Bit of a bite to it, quite a bit of carbonation. Finish that lingers for quite a while.

Nice semi-cloudy gold in color with very minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is extremely light with just a touch of orange peel. Taste is cool with some watery orange flavor and the feel is reminiscent of a wheat. Finish s clean with a touch of a creamsicle at the end

Good very light witbier with a ton of orange citrusy flavors on the nose and palate. Delicious and refreshing with some southern Mexican food but as a standalone beer it's nothing too outstanding.

pound for pound i reckon this is one of the better beers these guys make on a regular basis. its different as the wit style goes, and they have jazzed it up just right. hazy but less pale in color than others, more golden than yellow, with a short lived airy white head. the aroma here is awesome, orange blossom honey, the orange is there for sure, but its sweet, floral, and in front of the belgian yeast, but works well in concert with it. fruity and sweet at the same time, grounded only barely by the sturdy wheat malt. the flavor is awesome and a lot like the aroma, really floral citrus and honey notes, completely herbaceous, springy, polleny, fresh, zesty, living. its great. a little surprised to see this rated so low here, maybe its because to style its pretty out there, but you have to appreciate the complexity in the flavor. the orange i awesome, the blossom element is great, honey all the way through it, there has to be honey in here right?! carbonation sags just a little, and its not so light as to be an all day crusher, but i like it having a little substance to support all the flavor. this is great beer, tastes like no other wit out there, but yet is not at all overdone. i was real pleased with this, and think its far better than its current ratings...
