2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
"pour looks more like an amercan yellow beer than the cloudy off white usually associated with the color. the aroma hit my nose immediately upon popping the top and was the beers strongpoint. fresh scent of citus and coriander and yeast. the feel was a little thin with prickly carbonation, and the flavor was refreshing (nothing unexpected) and a little understated. overall, a decent interpretation of a style i donít get too excited about very often."

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy dull yellow-tan, malty-marshmallow, lemon and coriander. Malty body, lightly malty, floral, honeyish character. Not bad wit.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, pour is a well carbed ligght cloudy tan color. No head whatsoever. Some fruit aroma, light tangerine, gingersnap, and wheat funk. Medium light body. Good wheat beer though. Better than a blue moon any day. Great spices, has a bit of a nilla wafer aftertaste. Beer tastes better than it looks or smells.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle says A 102514 (October 25 2014?)
Appearance: Hazy golden body with not much of a head, which very quickly dies. No lacing.
Aroma: Sour wheat scent. Iím not picking anything else up.
Taste: Coriander and a light wheat flavor. It is a very light beer overall. Not a whole lot of flavor presence.
Palate: Very light, a bit watered down. Low carbonation. Not much presence in the mouth.
Overall: I was not very impressed with this. For a beer with polar bear on the label I would have thought it might have more flavor to it. It is just too bland. Wonít drink again, I can recommend far better beers.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This tasted like a blend of a witbier and a pilsner. Faint wheat and corriander aroma. Standard light yellowish golden color that is typical for the style with a big head. Light watery palate with high carbonation. The flavors were not pronounced in the way you would expect for a wit. Toned down orange, coriander and wheat with a minor bit of spice from the yeast. They make better beers than this.

Slightly hazed yellow pour with frothy white head. Aroma is lightly spiced wheat and a touch of lemon zest. Flavor is slightly sweet wheaty with a touch of coriander. Medium bodied with aggressive carbonation. Flat wheaty dry bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a white head that dissipates quickly and leaves lacing in the glass. Aroma of German yeast. Flavor is mildly sweet, with notes of banana and cheap beer. Mouthfeel is thick. Finish is Cornish. An odd wit.

i received this delectable as a gift from a colleague, and I couldnít have been more pleased with it. The color was perfect, the taste, while different, grew on me. We opened these beers in a conference room, and it made me wish there was an air freshener of alaskan white ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Light clear golden color. Aroma is wheat, with hints of orange and spice. Taste is wheat, grass, and the subtle orange and spice. Perhaps a little too subtle. Refreshing and light though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle, sampler form Salute! in Kalamazoo. Cloudy yellow brew with white head. FIne aroma of spice, orange peel, coriander, yeast, wheat malt... Taste is sweet malt at the very star, spice and yeast up front with spice, orange peel, lemon and pepper emerging in the swallow. Ends with a spicey and peppery flourish... Pepper is well done as it comes and goes in the finish without lingering too much (except for a tingle on the gums) - good stuff!
