3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured gold with a bright thick head. Citrusy, coriander flavor. Not too complex with a peppery spice aroma. Watery finish. Was too excited about this one which made it somewhat of a letdown.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudied gold with a tall white head. Nose is fruity (melon and lemon) and yeasty with lots of wheat and light spice. There’s some cardomom, coriander, and clove. Taste is wheat, grains, light spice (coriander and cardomom), and a bit of citrus. There’s an obvious Belgian yeast flavor throughout this. Body is light and refreshing. A thirst quencher even in January. Finishes with more grains, light spices, light lemon, and yeast. Some candyish notes at times during the finish. A really nice witbier, nonetheless.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Banana esters in the aroma with a slight earthy funk and a bit of clove. Very pale yellow with cloudy parts and clear parts and a thinning white head. Sweet candy-like flavor with bits of spice. Finish is a bit abrupt. Watery texture, but a little sweet, almost cloying but not too bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tastes of orange peels and hay. Full, rich taste that is light on the tongue. A pretty decent white ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy straw yellow body under a thick white head - great lacing! Full, rich aroma: yeast, bit of phenols, damp hay, and a central malt sweetness. Light fluffy mouthfeel, sort of like eating egg nog foam. Sweet wheat malt, lemon peel and light coriander in the flavor. Very light and delicate.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a hazy straw color with a nice white head. The taste is rather bland with some spices present, but a watery taste. This is drinkable, but not a good wit beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy yellow-off-white with a thick frothing head. The aroma is all spices with a touch of lactic acid. Body is really lacking with none of the fullness that the originals of the style carry-out. The spicing is rather...well...over the top? Way too much of everything. Remember, if you can pick it out, your using too much. Refreshing and a descent beer but not a true to style wit.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Paid $1.50 for a 12-oz bottle. Very cloudy pale yellow with a 2" head. Not much of an aroma, but what’s there is very lemony. Flavor is full of tartness, but no defined lemon or other citrus flavor. Light on the spices and almost no finish.
