3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a super hazy yellow color with no head or lacing.
Smell: Smells like your typical Witbier, but not quite as banana and clovey, which is a good thing... I tend to find that sort of nose both extremely redundant and predictable. Unfortunately though, the first smell I got from this beer was major skunk... fortunately though, it doesn’t last longer than a few moments.
Taste: It is what it is... a Witbier. Banana and clove on the front of the tongue, with prickly carbonation. After taste briefly tastes of ... cherries? And then there’s a faint wheat aftertaste.
Overall, I liked it more with each sip... normally Witbiers have that super sweet banana, clove, and especially, CORIANDER taste, but this isn’t like that much at all. A respectable seasonal/sessionable beer.

Pours straw color and looks dense with some sediment. Good head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet, pleasant yeast with some spices and a little citrus. Taste is yeast, wheat, spices, and lightly fruity. Pretty refreshing and surprisingly good for being so heavy on yeast. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. I’d enjoy this more cold in the summer than the winter. Bottled almost six months ago - not the freshest sample.

Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Nose is ginger, lemon, white grapes, and grass. The taste is well balanced sweetness. The mouthfeel is soft and smooth. The body is medium and the finish long.

Bottle at home in CT. Pous cloudy orange with a small, foamy white head. Plenty of coriander and citrus fruits on the nose. Medium sweet flavor, crisp and lightly doughy malts, coriander, bread, hints of alcohol. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with faintly toasted hay, some wheat, yeast, doughy bread, spices. A simple, tasty wit.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is spice and malt and the taste contains some yeasty tones that makes this beer a step above other winter white seasonal that I have. Finishes dry and went down fast. Would buy again

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy yellow, with a white head. Aromas of sweet oranges. The flavor is sweet at the beginning, and surprisingly bitter (like a grapefruit) on the finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Overall, it’s a tad too bitter unless you feel like that’s what you’re missing in your Belgian wheat beers.
