Pours a hazy dark orange color with less than a finger of white head that fades away to just about nothing. Smell is sour, hint of orange and wheat. Taste is sweeter than a witbier should be, notable wheat and orange flavors. Medium-light body, quick finish. It's not really true to style, but it's a decent beer.

Honestly this isn't a bad witbier, it's not to style though. Much sweeter than normal with a bit more orange and a muted coriander. I honestly don't really like the style too much because I find a lot of them overly spiced. This one doesn't have that problem. It's not a great beer, but I'd drink it if it were my only non adjunct lager option.

I just don't get this style. Fruit and spices don't belong in beer, folks. It is a quality beer, I'll give it that (and thus a generally high rating) but hate the taste.

Great beer to drink with a piece of orange in it. Not a very strong wheat flavour though.

The rating's probably a little high. There's some personal bias here since this is the one of two macro beers I've been drinking since the beginning. You get the necessary whit taste without the watered down feel that comes with AB beers.

Fluffy orange Malt. Aroma of coriander, orange zest and wheat. Not too shabby as a witbier!

Solid macro take on the wit. I can handle this if I have no real other choices.
