3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Clear yellow (kept the yeast in the bottom of the bottle)with a long lasting foamy white head and oustanding lace. The aroma has notes of coriander, clove, orange zest, wheat and grains, perfumy and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts fruity and spicy with a dash of bitters on top. Undertones of wheat and lemongrass on the finish. Lively feel and dry finish. Refreshing as the style should be, but it still lack the kick that the best in genre have. Quaffable Witbier and would drink it again.

Perfectly acceptable and refreshing summertime wit.
Not a lot going on, but thatís the style. Clean and thirst quenching.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy yellowish golden body with a thin, white head. An interesting, fairly unique aroma of sweet oranges and lemons, coriander, yeasty bread, banana and some other light spices. It took a while for the aroma to take shape, but once it kicked in, things were good. The body is fairly light and nice for the summer. The flavor is lightly sweet and really fruity. The oranges, lemon zest, fruity esters, coriander, fresh bread, and banana all make for a wonderfully tasty beer. The finish is light and clean. While it took a while for this to grow on me, grow it did. A nice, tasty summer beer that easy drinking AND has great flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours lighter than any beer Iíve ever seen. It was amost white comming out of the bottle adn settled to a very pale yellow. It gets bonus points for the original color. There is a definate spice characteristic and some yeast and citrus present. It leaves a slightly chalky and dry feeling and finish in the mough. The flavor doesnít seem all that complex, but does have some wheat and citrus peaking through. Overall it was a little too plain for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
ery pale yellow color, yearning toward white, with a beautiful head, pure head, fresh and frothy head.
The nose is everything Iíd expect from a witbier, or any decent imitation, alert, spicy, citric, a touch dry, some lemon, a show of orange, and overall, inviting and appetizing.
Taste: decent hops at first, nice wheat texture, very light in body, and extraordinarily drinkable. I could kill a ton of these in the summertime. (I can only admire that attribute now as the snow falls!) Itís lightness and smoothness is itís perfection, a bit more lemon than orange in the flavor, very thirst-quenching and full of zing!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This bottled brew from the BW3 in Fort Wayne, IN poured a medium sized head of white colored fine top medium sized bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was a softly carbonated transparent weak yellow pee color. The aroma was mildly malty and hoppy while favoring the hops. The mouth feel was smooth with no bite and a mild tingle. The flavor was malty and contained a few wheat notes.
