Very cloudy with lots of sediment. A little more spicy than Hoegaarden, but lacks a little something in comparison. Still, the best american-brewed witbier I've had.

12 oz bottle. Spicy aroma. Opaque pale yellow color. Lots of yeast floating around. Smooth in the mouth. Not much carbonation. Citrus flavors with spicy overtones. Overall a refreshing beer. I usually don't drink Belgian Whites but I would have another one of these anytime.

Its refreshing to come back top one of my favorite styles after some time. Cloudy golden haze with mucho yeast in suspension. Great aroma and mouthfeel. Typical citrus overtones present tempered by the phenoelic characteristics found in some belgians. Definately a thirst quencher.

Bottle from batch #9. A slightly hazy yellow color with a white head. While I found champagne, yeast, perfume, and coriander in the aroma, it was not a robust aroma. Light bodied with a dry spice and citrus flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks for Darkover for this one. Pours a hazy dark yellow color with a thin off-white head. Very little lacing. Aroma is very spicy with pepper, coriander and some citrus. Light-bodied and crisp with a spicy and fruity character, with yeast flavor as well. The finish is sweet, fruity and clean. This is a solid Wit.

Lots of coriander with a touch of smoky black pepper and lemon in the aroma. White pepper/hoppy flavors abound. Consistent rim of fluffy head. Not mouth-filling but very refreshing.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wonderful aroma of banana, citrus, and spicy coriander. The appearance is a lovely cloudy golden yellow. Flavor is dominated by a sweet citrusy start, a spicy coriander middle followed by a clove-like finish and aftertaste. Mouthfeel is average. A great wit.
