2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours gold and very bubbly with a huge white head. The aroma is lacking. I’m just getting some mild grain. The flavor is moderately sweet with some fruit character. Overcarbonated. It’s light bodied and fairly good for what it is, a simple summer beer.

12 ounce bottle in JW Marriot bar Indy. Coriander and wit flavors against the hazy orange citrus body and taste. Ok.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; an almost completely transparent light gold with white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and spices. Tastes like it smells, only more robust, with a nice, light mouthfeel. This one exceeded my expectations, as I’m not a huge fan of the style to begin with.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Lightly tart wheat with some coriander; comes off as floral and peppery as well- lots of character for the style. Appearance: Cloudy yellow/gold body with a collar of bubbly white head. Flavor: Tart, spiced wheat character up front with a bit of honey toward the finish; the spice lingers, but dissipates from the start. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A very nice Witbier; definitely recommended for fans of the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a rather hazy golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose has a decent amount of wheat in there with a moderate amount of coriander and spice. Taste has a little bit of citrus to it, but with a sweet finish to it that was unexpected. OK.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with a huge head that disappears quickly. As for the taste, it reminds me of a heavier miller lite; not much flavor upfront, with a really shitty aftertaste. No thanks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not a bad blonde. Spicier than most. Lots of coriander and pepper. Some cloves. Medium bodied with an attractive yellow appearance. Tons of head. Got this one from Binnys in Chicago with Dave in 2012.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Foams like crazy. Tall puffy white head, light yellow color with a clear/clean look and a ton of carbonation. Very slow recession of the head. Aroma is very grainy with a light lemon citrus note. Light coriander spice note and maybe some light clove. Flavor is light grain and lemon mostly with some herbal flavors and not much of the spice that was detected in the nose. Body is light, very effervescent. Slight dryness to the brew at the tail end of the tasting. Overall a non-offensive, plain brew as a whole. An okay brew for summertime.
