2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750, corked and caged. Pours hazy yellow with a lacy white head. Aroma of corriander, lemon. Cotton candy and fruit taste. Light-ish body with medium carbonation. Spicy, but otherwise kinda nothin’ finish. I’m not getting any indication of the extract of licorice root.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This numbered 2814 corked and caged bottled brew from Indianapolis, IN pored a glass of all foam. The head was made up of finely sized white colored mostly diminishing bubbles. Once it died down, it it left behind a softly carbonated slightly hazy yellow white colored body. The aroma was of mild coriander malts and hops. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish. The flavor was slightly acidic with soft floral hop notes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
An average beer would be about the best thing I could say about this one. It didn’t really have one particular thing about the beer that stood out, but it was a decent beer all the way around. An aroma of oranges, herbaceous and hay. Very light in the mouthfeel with an overabundance of carbonation (what is is with Belgian’s and carbonation?). Flavors of spiced oranges and wheat. Sublte yeast characteristics make an appearance, as does corriander and lemongrass. Good enough to be refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This Belgian Wit pours a light yellow gold color from a cork 750ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is wheat, lemon and citrus. A lighter bodied wit. The malts are fruity and wheaty. Lots of lemon, lemon peel and citrus flavors as well as some wheat and spice. Lively carbonation, really lively, fizzy is the word. It’s a little thin tasting as well, probably due to the lower alcohol content. It is light and refreshing at least. Kind of a cross between a wit and a tart raddler, a nice beer for a warm evening. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly tart.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured pale yellow with huge white head that persisted. The nose was citrus fruit and spice, but the flavor was overwhelmingly lemon. Puckering lemon.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Bright yellow pour with a slight haze to the body and a vanishing head. Light wheat in the nose, subtle lemon, musty basement and light coriander. Fizzy-seltzer-like body. The flavor seems watered down with restrained lemon notes along with paper and subdued coriander. Watery and lacking character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. White head that was medium in size and mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, carbonation observed, hazy, and a pale yellow hue. Nose was malty, wheat, spicy, fruity, coriander, citrus and orange peel. Ditto for the flavor along with being refreshing and a dry finish. Tingly, dry mouthfeel and medium in body. Quaffable, easy drinking, but there are better to be had of this style.

3.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 20/20
More of the Belgian yeast flavor than Hoegaarden, which you’ll like if you like Belgian beers (I don’t). Lots of spice (coriander, presumably). Really fizzy. An interesting witbier that’s less mainstream than Brooklyn Blanche or Hoegaarden.
