It’s pretty bad. Soapy, thin, weirdly bitter. Looks good, too bad it doesn’t deliver. On draft in Collegeville.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub in Gettysburg. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of lots of spices, especially ginger and nutmeg. Flavor features the spices initially with bready malt and citrusy notes in the finish. Not bad, but perhaps overspiced.

This was a nice witbier that wasnt too thick or too watery, just about right. Nice spice and lemon taste that was very subtle. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy from tap with an inch of rapidly dissipating foam. Nice hints of orange peel on the nose. Nice fruitiness on the tongue. Finishes with some dryness which is nice since the beer doesn’t become cloying.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy light-yellow/white, as a good wit should look, with healthy white carbonation. Aroma is dominated by herbal, weedy, spices- I’m guessing a significant yet even amount of orange peel and coriander. The flavor favors the citrus though, like fresh orange with some yeastiness and slight spice. Good, refreshing, undertones of sweet grain. The flavors are still separable unlike some of the best wits I’ve had (notably Ommegang Witte). Medium bodied. Good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at ABC Collegeville. Pours turbid canary with white frothy head. Nose is limey citrus, coriandery spice, some soapy notes, hops. Tastes citric, dry, floral, with pronounced limey citrus notes, hops, and spice while maintaining a dry and floral undertone at the finish. Good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a lasting white head. Aroma is citrusy, yeasty, like a hospital... anyway, body is light, nice amount of frutiness, not overpowering as I’ve experienced with some other micro’s attempts at the style, maybe some spice cake in there. Crisp, refreshing finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ommegang brewfest: This was better at the brewfest athn what I remember this to be last winter when I went to the brewery for a concert. Nice cloudy yellow body with a good lasting head. Good carbonation too. Flavor is malty and doughy with a good spicy yeastiness to it. Coriander, ornage peel and a slight bit of hops at the end. Nice easy drinking wit.
