2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy golden amber. Thin and fleeting white head. Aroma is a refreshing orange-banana with hairspray. Mild sparkly orange and wheaty malt taste. Glad it isn’t overly sweet, but it also isn’t overly flavorful.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at brewery. Smells like Lemon Head candy - sugary and lemony. Hazy pale yellow color. Head was initially fluffy but then rapidly deflated. Heavy in carbonation. Upfront acidic tang, then mellows into a yeasty pale lager aftertaste. Mild. At the bottom of my list for Belgian Wits.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not my favorite witbier, but not terrible either. Has some very earthy, hearty tones, perfectly reflecting its home town’s atmosphere. Taste is of wheat, bitter greens, light spice, and maybe a hint of grapefruit. Body starts out feeling a little light, but ends a little fuller than you’d think.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy, yellowish in color. Some of the standard wheat style aroma. Flavor was mostly sweet, some spice but not very complex. Body was very watery.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Very small white head that quickly dissipated, sparse lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, carbonated, transparent, and a straw yellow hue. Malty and fruity aroma. Flavor was sweet and malty and rather boring and bland. Tingly and somewhat dry mouthfeel. Light body. Unimpressive and not recommended.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium haziness in this yellow beer with a thin head. Strong corn-starchy aroma, like Coors light. Vaguely yeasty character carries this, rescuing it from its poor draw on the nose. But it’s still flat and boring.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 A disappointment. This poured an orange/amber color with the faintest trace of a white head. It smells like oranges and grass. It’s a thick drink that tastes mainly like weakly carbonated orange soda. What am I to do with the other five bottles?

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
salty, stong pungent fruit aroma. But not pungent in a good way. Pours a flat orange-brown. Reminds me of thinned out tangerine juice with some alcohol added. Mouthfeel is blah. Finish is weak and uninteresting.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a nice orange/yellow. That’s where all things good with this one end. Aroma is horrible, very gasoline like. Flavor is oranges and not in a good way. Kinda like orange soda, very artificial tasting. Not good.

Some wheat shows through the rather rugged and dishclothy taste. Some pepper in the nose. Harsh overall and an unbalanced mess.
