4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great yellow orange color. Good frothy head. Good lacing. Nose of orange and coriander like it should. Tastes of tart orange, coriander. Hints of almost tropical fruit like notes in the finish. This is a great stand-by Belgain (Style) Wit made close to home.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice spicy aroma complements a strangely bitter flavor and aftertaste in this brew. An odd wit, but decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light yellow color with thin head. There is a definate aroma of the coriander peaking through the wheat smell. Flavor is very nice, warming from the wheat, yet still has a nice feel the spice. Ending is cleanly crisp with a small hop bite to it.

Its been awhile... the color was golden, and slightly cloudy. THe aroma was fruity but the flavor was too thin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle: seems to pour crystal clear out of the bottle, but settles into a bright, though hazy lemon. Thin starched white head. Characteristic clove/cracked pepper/yeasty aroma. Though the aroma is just what you would expect a slight tang of sweet orange rind and sour malt keeps it from being boring. Nice tight carbonation, which creates a smooth mouth feel. Lemon flavours up front are balanced nicely with bitter oranges, chewy malt, sticky/sour honey, and some fennel. Not my favourite style, but satisfying and interesting no less, Cheers whaleman for the extra treat.

Straw colored brew with a big bubbly white head. Spicy,yeasty nose. Crisp wheat bite with some lingering spiciness. Light bodied, this would make a nice summer session brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden color. Somewhat cloudy. Nice white head that sticks to the glass. Aroma has citrus, lemon, banana, some spice too? Flavor could use a little bit more. Peppery, some citrus. Overall pretty good, but could use a little more to be a really good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy Yellow, Big sloppy white head. Toasty citrus aroma. Full, fluffy mouthfeel. Spicy, orange and lemon flavors first, then a peppery finish. More of a session Witbier than a special-event Witbier, but nice nonetheless.
