3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow, slight head fades quickly, appropriately hazed. Aroma is lightly of grainy wheat and some dusty coriander. Flavor is a match, with the coriander spice note being the biggest player other than the light wheat notes. Did not pick up on the citrus characteristics at all unfortunately. A mildly refreshing beer, but nothing exciting here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
20080625 Bomber. Pale beige golden color with small white head that quickly fades. Aromas are a bit grainy for a wit, lightly bready, not much fruit or spice in aroma. Flavor is also bready, plain, a bit husky, and finishes with light vinyl notes. Very little wheat presence in flavor - actually, very little flavor presence in flavor. Something of a letdown from a brewery that’s been doing it for me lately. Low abv is appreciated and without the bandaid notes this could easily become a regular summer quaff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another catch from Canal’s this time in Princeton, NJ. Pours a hazy medium yellow under a quickly receeding small white head. Predominantly yeasy aroma with spicy notes and some hay wafting about. Flavors generally in line with many other American wheats but none of them "want the ball". A little clove, a little banana, a touch of yeast and a cameo of hops. Texture is a bit thin but the finish is tasty and moderately dry. Overall, a refreshing beer but nothing to run out and stock up on.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy almost milky golden/yellow/orange with a medium bubbly head. Aroma of corriander, lemon, wheat, pepper and other various spices. Flavor if the same, getting more wheat and yeast in flavor. Spicy/citrus notes still there. Nicely done, fresh Wit. Crispy, dry, flavorful yet refreshing. Just what I needed on this 95 degree Saturday afternoon.
