3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow color with no head. A moderate corriander aroma with some wheat. Lotís of wheat and an orangy finish. Fairly light body. Corriander fades in the taste. Not bad. Thankfully not a corriander smoothy like so many Wits turn into.

Fairly bland white beer for my tasting. Was a very opaque gold. Not much going on. Spice level was low or nonexistent. Still enjoyable to drink, but not great.

Ah the color of a lemon meringue pie..very pretty beer...yeasty and fresh citrus nose...very apparent coriander(if i diddnt know this spice was involved i would have just said apparent spice)...anyway its very easy to drink...nice little ending bite of citrus fruit rinds..not my favorite wheat, a bit un-balanced in the spice versus fruit ratio...but its good..and it actually starts to taste better as it gets warmer

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz Bottle. Poured a light golden color w/a large foamy white head. Grassy aroma. Definite wheat/grain flavor w/some sweetness & spice, orange & cloves, & fresh dough flavor. Light easy drinking beer that has a little more flavor than many other samples of this style, a little more umph! Thick mouthfeel w/ a long finish.

Bottle; Nose is yeasty and spicy. Lightly hazy gold with a good, glass-lacing white head; Flavor is spicy wheat that tingles your tongue, in the medium body, and the finish is tart.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2007 1st rating (bottle) Sparkly yellow champagne appearance. Highly carbonated though the head evaporates quickly. Piquant yeasty aroma with a prickly pleasant mouthfeel, but flavor underdelivers. Light-medium bodied with prickly peripheral yeastiness and a mild sour finish.
2nd rating (tap). What a difference on tap makes! My final rating will be an average of both ratings as there was such a profound difference between tap and bottled versions. The tap version champagne white/blonde, with piquant coriander, zesty citrus, almost lemony, yeast springing into the nose. Piquant, smooth, and relatively light bodied, but flavorful and giving the impression of a higher ABV than you would expect. Perfect on the palate and an American Style Belgian Witt that would be hard to top in the states.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy white with a small white head that quickly dissapates. Aroma is mostly wheat with some corriander spice. Flavor is light, even for a witte, but pleasant. Corriander and some orange are present along with bread like wheat flavors. Finish is yeasty, but enjoyable. A good light drinking beer.
