3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, unsure how to decipher date code, drunk 1/29/16.
Medium-sized white head fades quickly to nothing atop a lightly hazy, rosy-golden body.
Bubble gum, light cotton candy, lemon and tangerine in the nose. Not terribly aromatic and nothing new to see, but no flaws, though a touch of alcohol which shouldn’t be there.
Expansive, fluffy carbonation disperses cotton candy, bubble gum and white pepper/coriander throughout the palate. Light sugariness and fairly well-attenuated. Little bit of corn. I don’t know. About as uninspired/cookie-cutter American wit as you can get, but it’s balanced enough and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Solid, lots of wheat in the nose, a bit bready, and it continues in the taste, adding a bit of orange and little bit of refreshing spiciness. For the relatively low abv it had a good amount of body and flavor. Wheat character wa a bit more towards hefe than most wits.

Can from Bottledog. Decent wit here - citrus and wheat. Touch of mustiness. Nice orange quality in the aftertaste. Little spice. Medium sweet then a little dry on the end.

Can, Brewdog Leicester. Hazy yellow gold with a white head. Floral with butter, wheat and lemony yeast. Banana and metal with coriander spiciness. Quite thin in the mouth. OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz single bottle into a shaker glass, purchased at Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Pale yellow, slight hazy, unfiltered appearance with a white head, almost fully dissipating. Aroma of clove, coriander, yeast, orange peel, bread and light spices. Similar flavor, herbal, yeasty and zesty with a toasted grain finish. Mild bitterness balanced by a light to mild sweetness. Light body with ample carbonation and a crisp feel. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Hazy pale golden with small head. Fairly light body with some sweet wheat and orange, mild coriander. It ticks all the boxes, but isn’t as outstanding as many other Ballast Point beers.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Robe jaune et opaque. La mousse ne tient pas. Arômes d’Orange, fruits jaunes, banane. Goût biscuit, banane, clou de girofle. Final fruits jaunes. Assez longue en bouche. Texture sirupeuse. Une bonne blanche.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Modest aroma and taste for the style. Cloudy golden color with average head and body. My least favorite Ballast Point so far.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is wheat, orange peel, coriander, all light. Appearance is fizzy, pale yellow, with a head that dissipated very quickly. Taste is wheat. Lots of wheat. Corn. Orange peel. Coriander. Ehhhhh. Mouthfeel is like club soda, with a light to medium body. Overall, even for a Wit, this is not good.
