2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma wasn’t pleasant to begin with, but then came the flavor.... the best I could come up with is, it tasted like sweat. Old sweat. Discusting, horrible, and nasty. I must admit, I can taste a little bit of wheat in there somewhere, and it did have a little carbonation, but sweat?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice hazy golden body with light head. Yeasty aroma with coriander. Light wheat tartness, not as strong as I expected, or have tasted in others. Still an easier drink than some of those.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a very light slightly hazy yellow, with a paper thin head, very few bubles slowly rising to the surface of the beer. Very yeasty aroma, sunscrean, rotton banana. Flavor is light, watery, a little flat. Not too much to get excited about here. "It’s past its prime."

Well, the aroma is definetly has a belgium smell to it, fruity, yet still wheat beer like with hints of flowers. It’s not as good as some belgiums out there but still solid. Flavor is also very Belgium as well, who’d have guessed. It also has a slight citrus hint to it that is rather nice. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
hazy lemonade orange looking beer with a white standard head that dwindles away like soap bubbles. nose of spice and belgian horse blanket. on your tongue there are slight hints of the citrus orange and coriander wheat. thin and prickly on your palate. almost a drying effect. not as quenching as i thought would be. i guess for my first avery they can only get better.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 To me, it doesn’t really taste like a Witbier, but it’s still pretty good. Good malt yet very little hop flavor. The citrus that empowers most Witbier is a minor presence in this one. Light spices though. Still a very drinkable beer in its own right
it reminds more like Blue Moon than to Hoegarrden.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours a very light yellowy color with very little soapy head and no lacing, but given its clear nature you could tell it was very carbonated. The aroma was light and weak with hints of doughyness, bread, a hint of coriander, and some florals. The flavor is light bodied, heavily carbonated, prickly and watery. Some doughyness, a hint of pears and citrus...cardboardy dry finish. Not very good...not very bad... just very weak and boring. No truly defining qualities here aside from the cottonmouth finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy sports drink look with little head. Strong aroma of corriander with some citrus and bit of toasted bread. Somewhat thin in body with a fruity, floral, corriander finish. Nice flavors, if somewhat straight ahead. Could use some work on the body though.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head. Lemony aroma with light spice. Thin mouthfeel. Orange peel, lemon, bread, and light spice on the tongue. Good beer for the summer.
