Bottle. Pale yellow beer with a white head. Low wheat, citrus, spice aroma. Orange citrus flavor with wheat, spice, and yeast. LIngering citrus. Wheat a bit much (but I don’t like a big wheat bite - then again, it IS a wheat beer...).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I wanted to like this beer named the same as the state capital of Iowa. From a 750 ml bottle. The body poured light yellow with a nice amount of cloudiness. There was also a large white head on top. The aroma has some crisp orange peel and a little bit of apples. The taste is fairly tart with some mild oranges and a little bit of cheddar cheese. This is strange and needs some spice to balance out the fruit. This has a thin body and is not a good wit.

Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Hazy gold with a small white head. Nice yeast and spice on the nose. Good active mouthfeel. Flavours are pretty standard for the style - citrus, spice, coriander. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a well done Wit.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2006 I’m going to go against the grain on this beer. I thought it was very good and comparable to St. Bernardus. Aroma has coriander and other spices, citrus, and sweet wheat. Flavor is sour; more coriander, grapefruit, and some sugar. Considerable spice in this beer; more than many wit beers. Cloudy gold appearance with a thick white head. Medium palate. Tasted at Cellars; Roseville, MN.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale, hazy, straw / lemon coloured body with large white head showing decent retention. Aroma of lemons that may have been a bit off also some coriander. Notes of wheat in the taste and mainly the citrus again but not too much else, light in body with an average finish. I usually like the Witbier style but I feel a bit let down by this one.
