3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 10/16/2010. This witbier pours a very hazy yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, orange, honey, and sweet with traces of chamomile. A medium to light bodied witbier. The malts are fruity and sweet, orange, coriander and chamomile. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. The chamomile flavors come through more as it warms. Some orange at the finish. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

nice hybrid beer w/ a nod to the classic style. the chamomile comes through at the end of the nose and is a refreshing note. great on hot day and i’m sure it would be great w/ seafood.....

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this on tap at the Hopyard in San Ramon. I’m not sure what they were trying to do with this beer. I got no orange flavor, nor the crispness I’d expect in a witbier

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Harsh metal and dry hay like malt. a bit of spice and citrus are in there but behind a scruffy malt. Not that great.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 5 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Community Beerfest. Citrus orange peel aroma with some mild coriander and some vegetal hints. Scantly floral. Moderately hazy pale golden body with a small, quickly dissipating head. Citrus lemony, orange start, before this becomes a weird astringent mess with sweaty socks and an awful mustiness. Urinal cakes FTW. Yikes. (5/3/2/1/2) ~~~~~~~Re-RATE~~~~~~~~~22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. The aroma is super sweet, and full of lemony, orangey citrus notes. Pine-Sol cleanser and urinal cakes are detected. Hazy pale straw body with a strong, white head. Good lacing and good retention. Starts sweet, and becomes super floral and herbal. Tons of flowers in this, with a bit of a honey flavor. Body is mostly lifeless, and undercarbonated. More urinal cakes at the end. Yup, this beer is still shitty 2.5 years later.

On tap at Davis Beerfest 2010. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head and a floral aroma. This is a refreshing brew with an interesting flavor that features unusual spices such as chamomille and cardomom, with a citrus finish.
