3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured straw yellow with a thick head with very short retention. Good carbonation. Aroma had orange, banana, citrus,lemon and cloves. Some tangerine as well. There was quite a bit of tangerine in the flavor. It was overdone on the lemon and citrus. Mouthfeel was tart but alright. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 17, 2009 08.19.05 12oz bottle. The usual pale straw, totally clouded, and a thick white head that almost instantly fades leaving no lace. Aroma is a bit flat, mostly corriander and other savories, some lighter orange, tangerine. Flavor is sadly plain with only citrus and spice and not terribly interesting at that...bit too heavy on the spice, it gets oily and cloying with temp. Too bad, I realy liked it on the first sip.
20090417 bump up... I’ve been enjoying this beer more and more over the last couple years and just recently even kicked off the new kegerator with this stuff. Very nice, sessionable example of a traditional wit. Nice balance of spice, malt, and body. Soft and creamy, enough bite to keep it interesting, and lovely to see. previous score was 18.104.22.168.10 a travesty! I get wits now.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy yellow pour with a couple yeast chunks at the bottom of the glass. Grassy, floral, slightly spicy aroma, with a nice, light, spicy taste. Went down totally smooth and is a great beer for a hot summer day.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a very light hazy yellow, almost light green color with a very small amount of fizzy white head. Aroma is clovey, yeast, orange rind, and citrus. Flavor is sour and lemony then yeasty then finally dry. Overall, I wasnt too much of a fan.
