2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light in color with a fruity aroma. Taste is light, but weak. Finishes very lightly with no major aftertaste. Iím not a big fan of the style, but I was hoping for something a little better than average. This doesnít quite do it for me, but a nice hot day drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of coriander, cloves, yeast and lemon over a dirty straw body with a smallish head that dies down pretty fast. Flavor is similar, but much weaker than I would expect from something that touts itself as a Belgian Wheat. This leaves a very crisp and drinkable beer and the spicesreally dominate flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Itís got the classic wit look, hazy pale straw with a thick head. The aromaís a bit lemony, somewhat blocking the wheat and coriander. Nice lively mouthfeel. The spicing comes through more in the flavor, coriander and zest of orange with light peppers and a touch of banana. Quite a dry finish. Refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy pastel yellow with a small white head. Yeasty aroma, very mild notes of lemon and hints of fruity orange. Light mild lemon citrus in the flavour, pleasant yeastiness and notes of sweet orange at times. Average but smooth wheat palate. A very nice wit that will not disappoint fans of the style. 7/3/7/3/15

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy yellow, medium white head settling to a fine white ring that lasted to the bottom of the glass. LIght citrus and grassy aroma. Nice medium body with a fine, light carbonation. Some toffee sweetness is balnced by some spicy bitterness, leaving the finish dry, but short. I thought this was a pretty good Witbier.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Morganís. Bottle conditioned. Drank on 7/24/06. Nice looking wit. Cloudy, nice yellow, lemony color. 1+cm. creamy white head. Drops to a nice layer of foam. Nice lacing. Aroma - banana, cloves, and spice. Belgian yeast and I get a hint of the corriander and orange. Fairly strong. Flavor - Decent level of bitterness on the tongue. Smooth, light cold and refreshing in the middle. Banana, clove, orange, and spice flavors come out in the swallow and in the end. They are pretty light though, not overbearing at all. Palate - nice and light, refreshing. Higher than avg. carb. Overall - good. Not my favorite style, but this one is good. Nice and light, and the spice isnít overdone at all.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In the bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Has the aroma of pepper and coriander. Foam rings encircle the glass. Lemon and pepper flavors immediately register on the tongue, but the palate is a bit chalky. Wheat flavor is strong in this with little balancing sweetness. Lemon is the big deal here as it is tongue tingly and pronounced throughout.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
First thing I noticed was a surprisingly strong aroma of spicy citrus. Pours to a golden orange look with a small head and a bit of lacing. Lacks in overall flavor to me but possesses an aroma with yeast, orange, and a medicine flavor. Not horrible for a witbier but Avery has done better.
