I accidentally eisbocked this in my fridge when I turned it way down in anticipation of losing power during the hurricane. I did not, and this beer (but maybe not the others) froze. Extracted around 9 or 10 fl oz.

Deep reddish amber body with some whitish head.

Malty caramel nose and some sweet orange.

Rich and sweetish, the orange and caramellish malt dominate. Traces of hops are pretty absent. There's cardamom here, too. Not super Belgiany, but pretty super good.

Smooth feeling.

This review is probably worthless since it doesn't represent the actual product, but I quite enjoyed it after much of the water had been frozen off.

12 oz. bottle with no freshness date and states that this is brewed with orange and coriander. It pours a cloudy rust/copper with lots of carbonation that goes up to an inch of tan head that leaves light lacing - pretty dark for a wit. The first aromas are tropical, predominantly orange and pineapple, with light lemon and spice behind it. On the palate it's orange and coriander up front with banana?, ginger?, hints of tangy wheat, hints of green/spicy, almost floral hops, and a mild bitterness. The body is light with tingly carbonation and leaves a short, orange-flavored aftertaste. Overall it's a decent attempt that is refreshing enough, but the orange and spices are too strong for the natural wheat flavors to come through.
