3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pale straw yellow pour with some white head. Aroma is light citrus, dry grainy malt, very dry for a white beer, similar to the dryness found in coors. Flavor is the same, more sweet in flavor than in aroma, but the sweetness reminds of fruit juice, dry griany malt, and citrusy presence as well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from tap a hazy yellow with medium sized white head. Aroma was malty with a bubblegum sweetness, banana, and a slight spice. Flavor is sweet with bubblegum, banana, clove, and bready with a very mild citrus at the end. Overall, seemed more hefeweizen like than wit. Flavors were nice, but slightly too sweet and too little carbonation for me.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. The aroma was bready and yeasty, with just a touch of esters. The flavor was more bready than anything else, banana and other wheat flavors were secondary. The mouthfeel was full and malty. The finish was long with lingering biscuit and a touch of citrus. Overall: A very refreshing and drinkable wheat beer. Recommended.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazy straw gold, with a small white head. Smells of light bubblegum and banana wheat characters. Mild citrus presence. The flavor was also more on the banana and wheat flavors side, with not much of a citrus balance here. Just an average American version of a Belgian style. Not too bad, and certainly drinkable, but similar to many others Ive had in this style.

Draft… RBSG ‘08… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is subtle, but displays spicy and grainy notes with a suggestion of citrus. Light-bodied and watery with tingly carbonation. Mostly nondescript flavor. Thin, watery finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It looks like I got a much better bottle of this that most. Pours hazy light yellow with a smallish white head. The aroma has richness or wheat, dry orange / lemon zest with a hint of coriander. Medium body that is smoother than most wits with carbonation that has sharp and soft traits ~ it’s prickly, but gentle and spreads the flavor well. The flavor starts with wheat and light spice from the coriander along with some phenolic spice and citrus. The finish has a bit more spice and citrus. A good wit.
