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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The first half was a clear light gold pour the second half hazed gold. An aroma of clove and fruit. A flavor the same as the aroma. A really nice light crisp drinker at 5.5%. A slight after taste that might really eat at me if I drank too many.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A semi-boring Belgian white. Why is it that American brewers can’t quite get the esters and phenols of Belgian beers? This is well-brewed, with the heart in the right place, just light and boring. I did not detect the spicing like other raters.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
VERY citrusy flavor. A lot of spice but still quite a light beer. Has a very nice sweet aroma, almost like apricots. A lot of flavor of orange and coriander. A very refreshingh light belgian wheat, wouldn’t be able to drink too many of them, the spice may get overwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lots of spice. Lots and lots of spice. Orange, coriander, some cloviness. Good B-Wheat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
white matter, little head. Mild pleasant spicey odour. Fruit bar like mouthfeel, a bit sour taste along with spices. Not a bad beer but only passable on drinkability. Corriander and lemon band orange peel does not work for me in beer or in herbal tea.

Hazy yellow in color with nice white fomy head. Smells like zesty lemons and coriander. smooth lemony taste that gives way to a weird spicy after taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, pours a nice pale yellow, white head, with nice lacing down the sides. Full flavor of bananas and oranges, went very well with a bbq chicken pizza I was eating. Good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very clearish, light yellow color. Great fruity/citrusy aromas. Flavor lacks compared to the aroma however. Decent wit, but I think avery has better beers to offer.
