3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Bottle No Date. Poured a cloudy lemon drop yellow with a sizable white head that settled down quickly. Aroma is strong with yeast,clove and citrus. Body is effervescent and soft. Flavor is wheaty with notes of coriander and yeast. Although not as good as say Allagash, this is still a very good Witbier for an American brewer to churn out. Refreshing and flavorful.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light straw colored, with decent head, and turbid (I checked the label, and it is indeed unfiltered). Nice aromas of orange, coriander, and slight yeast. Tastes very creamy, slightly dry, overtones of hops, citrus, banana, and yeast. Finishes smooth, dry, with even more banana. Very complex, very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very pale yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma is yeast and spice with a hint of malt and citrus hops underneath. Flavour starts sweet and yeasty with a citrus and spice middle and a dry acidic finish. This is the best American example of a Witbier out there. Damn good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow/golden colour with a medium-large bubbled head. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao and some fresh wheat. Medium-bodied; Spicey initial flavour of coriander seed, corn, wheat, curacao and lemon. Aftertaste shows bubble gum and cloves as well as a slight drying feeling. Overall, a very impressive witbier from a great brewery! I got this twelve ounce bottle from Phil (haddon90) in Knoxville, Tennessee...thanks again Phil!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow gold color. Small sized white colored foamy head. Aroma is citrusy and spicy, hints of orange, coriander and yeast. A medium bodied Belgian wit. Malts are fruity and sweet. Fairly spicy with orange peel, coriander and clove being predominate. Fine lively carbonation. Light and refreshing. It kind of bounces of the tongue. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry with a touch of alcohol bite. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Yet another winner from Avery.
