UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 This is a good witbier. It pours a golden straw color with two fingers of white head and has nice lacing. It has a strong citrus smell (lemons). The taste is very good with the citrus and spice complementing each other nicely. One of my favorite witbiers.

Not the biggest fan of witbiers, but this one was pretty solid. Spices were not overdone. Cloudy golden yellow with huge white head. Aromas were clove, orange, almonds, and vanilla. Yeast was also big. Flavor had a good yeast backbone with a good mix of the previously mentioned spices.

Well done Belgian wheat...with wheat grain/citric aroma. Fruitiness and new mowed hay flavor components. Bit of hoppy bite in the finish. Very strong yeast flavors as well.

Bottle poured yellow with lots of hazy, and a good yeast nose. Aroma also had some spice. I do not know if I truly dislike this style, but I did not like this.

Draft. A great-smelling witbier, with coriander and nutmeg spice, lots of yeast, and lemon citrus accompanying grain and a light caramel malt nose. On the palate, the beer is long-lasting and fresh-tasting. Apricot and hopcit, with a complementary tandem of hop and malt. Also spice on the tongue, and the "white" flavors of yeast and wheat with a full mouthfeel. An excellent example -- from America!

Bomber, batch 16: Sugary and sweet aromas with some spiciness there as well. Flavor was that of big oudoors, hay fields, sweet citrus abounds. Smooth and full mouthfeel, finishes with strong citrus.

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.
