2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Thick three finger white head on a very light gold body. Nose smells like suntan lotion and bannana. Let me set the record straight-I do not like Witbier. Now, having said that, this isnít too bad for what it is. The taste is very mild and almost a little smokey. Flavors of wheat, bannana, smoke, and sausage (yup, thatís right, sausage) are there. The finish is very clean mild. Overall, itís okay, but I would not drink it again by choice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Soft bittersweet ginger esters. Not as much banana in the aroma. Lightly malty body with dry apple undertones. Not a lot of flavor. Subtle or bland. Yeasty, club soda-like finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light color. Memorable citrus taste. It is hard to rate this because i donít care for the style that much but it is definitly a good beer for the style. Crisp, fruity and refreshing with hints of banana and simple maltiness.

Light color, distinct citrus aroma. Nice Belgian taste, crisp and tight, but not full. I like it, though one may want more body to come forth from it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz Bottle. Poured without much head at all. It has a nice yellow color, a bit hazy. The aroma is very soft, slight citrus and yeast. Has a decent body, but leaves more to be desired. The flavor is pleasant, light and refreshing. The citrus makes a casual appearance in the taste, but doesnít overpower the beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Frothy white head. Bitter, citrus aroma, really nice. Appearance is cloudy yellow like a failed drug test. Light to medium bodied. Taste is mainly spicy from the corriander, with some hop bitterness. Tart oranges in the finish. Great wheat taste too. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The White Rascal pours a hazy, very light yellow-white. It has a decent sized white head that has good retention and some lacing.
The aroma is musty and yeasty with some slight citrus notes (orange peel) and some spiciness.
The taste is yeasty and spicy (corriander) with more of the citrus (lemon and orange) coming out and some sweetish malts which helps balance it nicely. Itís a little on the thin side. It has a nice, crisp finish and is very easy-drinking.
Overall, a great summer brew.
