Pours a cloudy gold with a lasting head. Aroma of orange poeel and coriander. Flavor also has lots of wheat and a little lemon. Good mouthfeel. A good beer for the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured out a dull yellow that was quite cloudy and had about a fingers worth of white head. Decent retention as it eventually fell to a bubbly cap it left good lacing about the glass. Aroma is comprised of a slight lemon scent with notes of spice and yeast mingling about as well. Taste is very similar as a wheaty yeasty flavor is supported by a zesty lemon and a bit of spice. This is very effervescent and has a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is good as is the carbonation and it is very drinkable. Overall a good, refreshing example of a witbier.

Cloudy gold color, soft but distinct, wheat banana tart fruit aroma, taste is exactly like the aroma, nicely blended, but this flavor combination doesn’t really work for me

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2004 Corriander spice is not my favorite. Bitter finish, with lemon to enhance the weak impression on the palate. Probably good for grilling chicken or fish. Much better in he bottle, more colour and richer mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very disappointing. Aroma of citrus fruit. Looks really good, cloudy yellow like lemonade. Flavor of light lemon, like a Stiegl lemon beer. Sour finish. No complexity, no sweetness that I have come to expect from this style.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2005 Tap in Ballston, VA. Pours a very cloudy, and quite opaque shade of swirly tan (as I call it) for a witbier. Very nice flavor. I really like this one. Tastes good.

Batch #1, 750 ml bottle. Cloudy gold nice head and retention. Spices in the aroma of pepper and cloves. Taste is similar to Hoegaarden with a bit different yeast. Light, crisp and nicely nalted, this is improved with age.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Confirming my notion that small samples should NOT be rated. I had a taste of this at an in-store tasting and thought very little of it even though I went back and tried it about three times. Having a full pint made a world of difference. The has the character of a Belgian wit that I love: spice, but not so as to mask other elements and a luscious mouthfeel. Delicious.
