3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle, sitting in a porch swing watching a heck of a thunderstorm break open into a sweltering Austin night.
Pours a very light hazy beige with an ample head; the aroma is a bit of lemon-rind and spice, some alcohol, something sour, something perhaps slightly skunky (maybe this bottle, procured at the local drive-thru, was not in the best of condition?)
The flavor is pretty soft and pretty restrained; slightly sour, slight orange, a bit more spice, mostly just a sort of soda-pop vacuousness. The mouthfeel is fair enough for the style and I suppose itís a relatively refreshing drink even if nothing too exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: Bottle conditioned. Pours to a bright yellow/golden/straw colored body with a small white head that quickly dies, though it does stick a bit around the edge of the glass without lacing. The aroma is light pepper, yeast, corriander, and hints of banana and sweet light malts. Taste is corriander, black pepper, yeast, banana, and some light esters, with some clear hints of orange rind, bread, and pale fresh malts. Light-medium bodied, lively carbonation, finishes with a bit of tingle on the tongue from carbonation, bitter orange rind and hops, along with some residual sweetness and pale malts.

I liked this one but I like wits in general. Orange, spice, a classic cloudy yellow color and just a little fruit. Good example of the American witbier Very light and easily drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Bottle. Pale, light yellow colored transparent pour with a tall, brilliant white soapy head. Refreshing aroma of banana, tangerines, and a bit of sweet clove spice. Light, thin clean feeling on the tongue, with a creamy wheat flavor with just a touch of sweetness and spice. Tasty, light, and refreshing, but nothing exciting or stimulating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clean wheat malt aroma with orange peel and light coriander on the aroma. Pours slightly hazy light yellow with nice size head and very lively carbonation. Taste is very dry with the coriander in the forefront. Finish starts with a smooth citrus mouthfeel, followed by a sour/bitter flavor. More of the smooth citrus of the finish incorporates itself in the initial taste further down the glass. Nice unique representation of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This isnít a bit wit. Pours a hazy golden yellow...lots of yeast sediment and not much head. Aroma is wheat, banana, and spices....but sulfur too...yikes. Aroma is similar...but there is some grassy hop flavor which balances a bit of the sulfur funk. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and refreshing.
