2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty basic wheat. Virtually no aroma, and a pretty one dimensional flavor. Little bit of lemon grass, a bit yeasty, but otherwise watery.

On the label, why is the monk on the right giving the monk on the left the Nazi salute? Strange. Extra from dmac. This is full of lemongrass; coriander; and lemon. Easy drinking.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: Draft at Little Town-NJ, 4/25/13
Aroma: The nose has some malts/wheats, a bit of fruit, and maybe just a hint of spice
Appearance: It pours a cloudy looking yellowish color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is kind of boring, not much going on here, a little sweet malt and fruit
Palate: The mouthfeel of this one is overly fizzy and a bit on the watery side as well
This one wasn’t for me. I found it to be a fairly dull and uninteresting example of the style, and just a fairly dull and uninteresting beer as well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours light golden with a quickly dissipating, white head. Aroma of light malts, a little wheat and spice, plus hints of citrus. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Not the best beer for the style.

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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
