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...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was somewhat hazy yet slightly clear yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies at a nice pace leaving some nice foamy clingy lacing in its wake, carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace.
The smell was spices (mostly coriander) are up front with a nice backing by the citrus, banana and yeast that gives a nice bready sort of background.
The taste was mainly spicy first, but a nice bready sort of citrus balancing into a crisp flavoring, spicy aftertaste, dry yet crisp finish.
On the palate, it sat light, sessionable - check!, carbonation is slightly sharp but still good for the style and for me.
Overall, great witbier, Good job Avery, as much as I like this one, Iíll be more likely to have this again during the summer months as it shows a lot of nice refreshing qualities that would be better in the summer months.

Nice aroma with some spices and hops. Pretty weak body and taste though. Started out nice. Maybe a nice beer when itís warmer.

BOD 293/13. Pours a hazy lemon yellow with an average head and lacing. Retention is poor. The light nose is of Belgian yeast over hints of lemon and spice. Light medium body with a touch of slick texture. Average carbonation level - just a touch of effervescence on the finish. A tasty wit, but with a weak flavor profile that follows the nose. On the finish, coriander is evident. This one needs to enhance the flavor. As it is, its a very good lawnmower beer.

Large taster from a friendly waitress in Quinnís Bar, San Diego Sheraton on 17th March 2014. Misty light golden colour with a full white head. The beer is orangey, spicy and watery, glad I didnít pay for it. I struggle to find anything positive to say about Wit biers in general and tend to leave them alone, even in Belgium on a sunny day. This offering did not change my mind, it is a style I can live without. Nothing wrong with the beer, just not my thing.

Another good beer from Avery, very smooth and light. Some spices, but not too many, fruity flavor along with some esters from yeast
