2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 2003 bottlePours a lighter yellow with some white tinges. Moderately cloudy with not a whole lot of head. Smells of coriander, yeast, a little bit perfumy. Orange and more citrus. Starts out mildly acidic, mildly sweet and VERY WATERY. Yuck this tastes like soggy wheat with some slightly tart but muted lemon and a little bit of dissolved bubble gum/candy flavor. Maybe I got a bad bottle, dont know why this would be so bad. coriander and lots of water dont mix. 5/4/3/1/7
2005 draught at Redbones Phew, was hesitant to try this one after hating the bottle I had last. Much better though. A hoegaarden clone it seems, with a very similar appearance (though this lacked much, if any head formation or retention). Huge amount of haziness though, and who would have thought, when Avery makes unfiltered beers, they are good, hint hint. Lemon, bubble gum and clove all balanced well with soft wheat and light pils malt and belgian base malt. 6/4/7/3/12

Hazy light yellow colour. Phenolic, slightly spicy (coriander) aroma with hints of fresh mandarin oranges (not that canned crap). Light body. Spritzy, with lots of orange flavour. Slightly tart, with hints of spice.

Poured yellowish cloudy with solid chunks and a white head...smell was cloves and coriander...maybe a hint of banana...taste was like a watered down White...spices were there, just a little thin...I donít think this is a good example of a white...a good training beer maybe...

Bottle. Pours a very light slightly hazy yellow, with a paper thin head, very few bubles slowly rising to the surface of the beer. Very yeasty aroma, sunscrean, rotton banana. Flavor is light, watery, a little flat. Not too much to get excited about here. "Itís past its prime."

Rather a typical American witbier, with yeast and wheat the overwhelming, somewhat harsh base -- barely a spicy touch of that coriander / curacao. Still, quite a refreshing brew with a healthy dose of fresh lemon squeezed in after the pour.

Paid $1.50 for a 12-oz bottle. Very cloudy pale yellow with a 2" head. Not much of an aroma, but whatís there is very lemony. Flavor is full of tartness, but no defined lemon or other citrus flavor. Light on the spices and almost no finish.

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.

12oz bottle, no date. Pours a cloudy very light yellowish white with a quickly fading fizzy white head. Aroma of oranges, peppery spices, some sweet malts, and a tinge of yeast. Smells better than it tastes--the orange is subdued and there is slight pepper and yeast, though all tastes are blunted. There was a little bit of plastic as well. The aftertaste was kinda nasty--bitter with no other flavor, and not hoppy bitter. Medium bodied, light-medium carbonation. I was expecting from the taste for it to be more watery. This beer is kinda crappy.
