3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 12oz Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that was mostly lasting, eventually reducing to a puddled film and medium collar with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a heavy earthy yeast with notes of coriander and citrus.
The taste was lightly bitter and rather yeasty from the beginning and finished about the same with a nice distinct spicy citrus taste towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a lightly spicy citrusy yeast taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a light fizzy carbonation.
Overall this was a very tasty and refreshing Witbier which had a nice balance of spice and citrus, thus making this the perfect example of a great summer time brew...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip at approximately 45 degrees F.
A: Pours a cloudy pale straw yellow, and forms a thin white head that fades quickly to a ring. Decent, if spotty, lacing.
S: Fruit esters, so many of them, swirl out of the glass. Apple, pear, banana, melon, wreathed about some pale wheatiness and a touch of spice.
T: Tart and then sweet, the flavor palate opens with a surge of citrus, which yields way to a pear-melon combination. Coriander and a herbaceous tinge color the entire tasting, growing stronger as it moves along, until the finish is primarily those flavors.
M: Light bodied, but just heavy enough to feel like a decent beer.
O: Not an overdone, overblown reach, but a more subtle approach to the style. What hop presence is there does not overpower and command everything for me, the way many more hop-prevalent beers do. J’approuve.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Whole Foods. Aroma a bit heavy with a hint of coriander and wheat. Mouth feel is zesty and creamy at the same time, medium high carbonation with spicy citrus zest, cloves, and coriander on a bready, malt base. Solid Belgian spice blend. Light bodied and refreshing with a crisp, dry finish. A fine witbier; very refreshing and completely drinkable.

Can. Bright yellow. Aroma is banana and spice, I assume it’s coriander. The taste adds orange peel, floral hop notes, and some yeasty funk. Smooth light bitterness with a clean finish. Overall, the best witbier I’ve had. Very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells like a banana flavoring muffin. This is a banana/juicy fruit gum bomb. Overall, it tastes better than it smells but not my style.

Warm, grainy aroma, containing wheat and hints of white cheese. Can’t taste the coriander though, allegedly included in this brew. Some citrus in the flavor, some wheat. Rice porridge present. Still overall fresh.
