Even with an aggressive pour the foam was gone from Witbier quicker than you can say "Pompton Lakes". Left with a cider appearance, lemony light bodied beer. If "Asian Flare" means a monotone taste then Boaks has succeeded.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with fast-dissipatiung off-white head. Only a 2 for appearance here. Nose is wheaty malt, lemongrassy hops. Tastes wheaty, pale malty, with notes of apricotty fruit, gingery spice, hops. Medium to watery palate, with a watery finish. This one was a disappointment.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light with a foamy white head. A bit tart, hints of citrus zest, spices, and yeast. Very crisp. Fairly light, yet full bodied and flavorful.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a straw hue into the glass, with an initially copious wispy froth head that reduces to a thin ring cap, leaving light window-wash lacing. The aromas are of light yeasty and sourdough. Flavors are thin, with sour yeast and lemon esters dominant. The body is somewhat thin with active carbonation. A tiny closing citric-crisp finish provides little to a lackluster mouthfeel and unsubstantial, weak palate. As a refresher, I posit the wrong style... as a witbier, meh. Nothing too great.

Draft. Pours clear yellow with thin white head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is light fruit, wheat, banana, light spice, and sweet malt. Flavor is mostly sweet malt, no noticeable hops, and light fruit esters; dry, straw finish. Light body, medium carbonation, and low warmth.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with an almost nonexistent head. Some light lazy carbonation. The nose is spiced pretty heav, lot of lemon peel and coriander, minimal wheat and yeastiness. It almost has a slight soapy or lemon pledge quality to it. Flavor is pretty similar, reminds me more of lemon Pledge than a Belgian Wit. Very minimal yeast character, and that’s what I like most about a good Wit. Medium bodied, a little too clingy, sticky, and heavy for a Wit. Not an especially drinkable or subtle beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I was hoping for something other than a wit, with double in the name. Oh well. Part of a pick 6 from state college. Pale, hazy, no head, some retention. Lemons and spices in the nose. Lemony light palate, nothing offensive, but not much going on. Tasted decent after hockey. Can you say refreshing?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy deep-gold, not cloudy though (no yeast) just a wheat haze. A quick and coarse white head. Aroma is a faint and refreshing citrus/herb with a touch of hearty biscuit coming through after that. Mmmm, a quenching pucker on the palate, not sure what spice it is from, but light citrusy twang, a very smooth light body. I like this, spiced but not overdone.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, grass, spice with orange peel, Belgian spice flavor with some citrus and grass. Decent.
