Not a big fan of the style but this I'll easily have again. All in all, a solid and tastefully spiced white , as you'd expect from Dogfish.

Several 12 ounce bottles consumed over several days/nights. Poured into a Speigelau stemmed Pilsner glass. Thus far, I have only seen this beer sold by the individual bottle at my local Whole Foods. Was there this afternoon and there were none left. Too bad, as this is a wonderful Witbier and one that I'd drink happily again and again. The only two Witbiers I rate higher than this are Allagash White and St. Bernardus Witbier. My favorite offering so far from Dogfish Head.

Poured with a huge head and high in carbonation. Very distinct wheat flavor. Didn't get much of the spices. I will have to come back to this one and give it another try.

The overall look of the beer is a familiar look like any other pale ale. However, the head is a fluffy white texture that hints a citrus smell! The first taste came across as a peppery lemon flavor that ended in a buttery bitter finish. The feel came off smooth and lathered my tongue. Overall, the beer spoke for itself. It became such a peace offering with how smooth it was and fulfilling. Definitely an easy sip!

Just a really good beer. no complaints. Hints of fruityness from the oranges, which is a major plus in my opinion. Tasty. Thin Layer of head that disappears rather quickly. I would buy again. Overall 4.1

Poured from 12-ounce bottle into tulip glass. Hazy, muted yellow with a substantial soapy white head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma has all the elements of the typical witbier, coriander and citrus. The orange-y aroma carries over onto the palate, with a nice peppery bitter orange aftertaste. This is a fine offering from DFH.
