5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle on 07.24.14.
A: Strong smell of wheat. It also has lemon.
A: 2 finger fluffy head. Cloudy straw yellow.
T: Lemon and wheat dominate. Clove is subtle on the back end.
P: Creamy smooth. Perfect.
O: This is one of the best wits out there, hands down. I was looking forward to picking up Pliny on a trip, but this ended up outshining everything, including Pliny *gasp*. I was going to hoard some six packs of this, but it was too good not to drink immediately. It’s too bad that they don’t distribute to my state. Oh well. It is a fantastic wit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Maplewood Liquors. Pours a hazy orange/ yellow with a thick fizzy head. Mild citrus clove aroma. Taste is malty but the back end is where the spices and dry tart citrus notes kick in. Bubbly mouth feel. Feels light, but still has substantial flavors. Very nice complexity for a wit. Goes down easy and will hold its own against any style.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 Pours a light cloudy yellow with a think white head that leaves much lacing. The nose is spice with yeast. Body is fairly light. The mouthfeel is light with astringency and the spice is there with the yeast. The hops aftertaste lingers.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can you say “cloves”? Flavorful, but a style not for me. Bordering on offensive. Spiced beers are just wrong, far as I’m concerned they belong next to the mulled cider.

Cloudy pale yellow body with thin white head. Earthy yeasty aromas with highlights of fresh citrus. Spicy cloves come out over the heavy doughiness with the initial taste. Finishes smooth with a tang of lemons.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,33l pullo Bostonista. Samea vaaleankeltainen. Tuoksussa hiivaa, humalaa, mallasta, vatsahappoa, vähän banaania. Maussa mallasta, hiivaa, humalaa, aavistus banaania. Ehkä ihan vähän sitrusta.
