3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a very nice white head on top. Nose is wheaty with light bananas and spice. Flavor was delicious. While I am reviewing, I am actually suprised to reminded that this was a wit. I thought it was more of a hefe, but in any event it was very good. Lovely, citrus/sour finish that finished the creamy mouthfeel. I’d have another if it were around as it was very much a thirst quenching brew. Thanks to lewis13 for the bottle.

bottle-thanks to vyvvy for giving me this one. pours cloudy yellow with a sudsy white head-thick and smooth. nose is a bit lemony with undertones of pale grains (wheat). A bit on the egg notes as well-sulfer. flavors are more in the american wheat character with tons of lemon and grainy notes. lite body and mild carbonation, at least on the mouth. long lemony finish. pretty decent wit!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours slightly darker than a macro. No head at all. Slightly spiced candy Belgian aroma. I have to say when I first sipped this I didn’t know that the style was and expected a American Pilsner from the name. I thought something was wrong when I got a definite Belgian flavor. I read the bottle to see what it was. OK...not knowing what I was getting I could pick out the style. But after knowing, this is bad. It has that sort or what I call dirty candy Belgian taste to it but it really tastes like floor cleaner. Sort of like Pine Sol. Super perfumy. No body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours blonde with a small white head that leaves fairly quickly. The aroma has a rich quality either from the white or orange - it doesn’t list orange on the label, but it seems to have some. Medium / light body with some sharp carbonation. Flavor starts with nectarine flavor that has some plastic to it. The some spiciness enters that goes through to the finish. There is also some light astringency that comes through. Not a bad beer, but much better of the style out there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz - Aroma is appealing. Yeasty bubblegum, banana, lemon, and spice. Pours transparent gold with a quickly dissapating medium head and great lacing. Flavor is mostly ginger and other spices with the yeasty banana and bubblegum follow up. Palate is smooth and a little tart. Overall, it was better than I expected since the lable says blonde.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I almost subtracted points for appearance, since this poured such a clear straw color. With a one-fingered head. Quite an aromatic nose, soft wheat, oranges, a hint of banana and bubblegum (?), a dash of corriander, and some other spices at work. Soft and smooth in the mouth. The wheat/banana/bubblegum/orange blend continues in the flavor along with corriander, clove, and other spices. It finishes on a mildly lemon-tart note. If I was rating purely for style, I’d subtract points, fur shoor, but I found this to be a refreshing, tasty brew, even if it is a hefeweizen/wit hybrid. Good fare for the warm weather that’s just passed for the year.

Bottle. Fruity orange-banana aroma with a hint of clove. Clear orange-yellow color with small head. An orange-banana blast of flavor with slight hops finish. A nice tasting summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Hippie4beer for the trade on some barley island stuff. Pours a light hazy gold with a fluffy lasting white head. Aroma reminds me of victory whirlwind with a bit more malt profile. Phenolic lemony and bubblegum. Flavor is lightly wheaty, more bubblegum phenols, light clove spiciness, and some citrus notes. Smooth body but carbonation is a bit low for the style, although I did swirl the bottle to get some yeast so that may have decreased the carbonation. Honestly better than expected. Good wit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2007 12oz bottle- A slightly hazy golden in color with a head that dissipates very quickly into a small white lace around the glass. An aroma of spice and wheat. Has an initial taste that it is going to be a nice tasting belgian(more like a hefe) then the taste drops in the middle but comes back on the back end. Has potential.
