Notes: Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

Lovely pale-white color in the glass, good retention on a 3-finger head. Nose is cloves, banana, orange, herbal citrus, and a bit of yeasty lemon pee and wheat sweetness. Most of this follows through on the palate, but the banana is less present. I do get more grapefruit peel and yeast notes. The texture is velvety and creamy. One of my favorite beers.

Pours hazy white with light head.
Aromas of spice and fruit.
Getting grapefruit or grapefruit peel like tastes, but very nice overall. Also notice that there are sour notes, which is somewhat unpleasant, but because of the other tastes, it's overall very nice.
Has a medium feel in the mouth.

Overall one of the nicer Wheat beers I've tried.

I've had many a witbier, but this was the first I recall that actually tasted like toast. Surprisingly light, but still left me wanting to squeeze a lemon wedge into it. Great accompaniment to heavy food.

12oz can.

Pours cloudy yellow with an inch-plus head of white. Plenty of tattered lacing and persistent retention. Hints of spicy citrus in the nose an a wheaty twang. Light bodied with a creamy, soft mouthfeel. Faint lemon and citrus zest on the palate. Finishes dry with zero malt, a balancing bitterness and fading spice.

Honestly it's like my favorite beer. The perfect amount of every quality a beer can have. It fits every day and every situation. If I can't decide what to buy, I buy White.

7/9/23 On tap at Mad Mex at Robinson Center. Get together with Tom and Sarah.

This beer was not on my radar to date.... Boy I i have been missing something!

Beautiful all around look, taste and feel. Citrusy, spicy and very drinkable! (DW not around to help with better description!)

This classic is a go to summer holiday beer, just had it on the Fourth of July , when it was hot as hades and this was the balm. Served cold on a hot day, pours pale straw yellow with a frothy head, smell light hint of orange, taste cracker hint of spice, hint of orange. Light carbonation, easy drinking, highest recommendation. Easily one of my favorite beers, and a founding father of craft beer!

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours straw yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet wheat and citrus. Tastes of citrus, especially orange, with nice wheat. Beer is light bodied and easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a very good beer.
