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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle pours a very yellowish-white cream color, with a decent white head. Lacing is moderately sticky... head has nearly dissapated now. Aroma is very faint for a Witbier. The coriander and curacao orange peel are very mild. Initial taste is promising, but falls flat without an adequate amount of spicing. Mouthfeel needs more... wanting the spice that is a true Belgian White. This brew would have been better if it had a bit more spice to it. The finish makes me think I had a plain ole American Wheat with some lemon in it. Definately not an Allagash White, but its okay.   Thanks goes out to ClarkVV for the trade!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a light yellow color with a small white head and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The aroma is a mixture of spices, wheat, some hops, and a little citrus. The flavor starts out a little hoppy and then has the standard wheat flavor, but has a nice bit of spices to make it interesting. I had high hopes for this beer, but it didn't totally live up to them. It's a good beer, but not too special.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw yellow color with a big, foamy white head. Aroma is pretty faint. Some belgain sugar noted, but not a lot else. Flavor has a bit of sweetness, substantial carbonation, maybe just the faintest not of hops. Not a bad brew, but not something I would go out looking for.

This is a very lemony witbier with a trace of straw within the taste as well.
