3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange-amber pour with a small off white head. Smells of coriander, lavender, cardamom, lemons. Tastes of orange, lemon, coriander, pepper, biscuit. Very good, well balanced beer that I really enjoyed a lot, quite refreshing.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In my Duvel Tulip.
Pours a cloudy golden with two to three fingers of white head. Very pretty looking beer.
Aroma is bananas, cloves, gum, sweet and citrus fruits. Wheat and sugar, very inviting and complex.
The taste is an entirely different thing than the aroma. Itís sweet and sour, all the citrus comes out in it.
Palate is great! Good carbonation and rolls smoothly along the tongue. There isnít much of an after taste to speak of.
Overall a very interesting brew. Iíve never encountered a beer that accomplishes what this does, giving off an aroma that isnít anywhere close to the actual taste. Beautiful.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma has a great blend of mild spice and citrus. Pale honey color with Champagne bubbles. Poor head retention. Flavor has a amazing blend of spice, citrus, lightly sour apple, pear, and clove. Well done! Lingers on the tongue well after with a slightly tart feel. Would go great with a cheese plate, fish, pork, or chicken.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Amber in color, a whitish tinge, large rocky white head, spotty lacing.   Bright floral nose,
spicy, Witbier on crack.   Corriander and orange peel are there, assertive yet not over the top.   Bright
floral spiciness on the tongue.   A little fiery.   Very bright and floral.   I want to say Grains of
Paradise are taking this one to the next level.   Clean, big, spicy, fiery, and very assertive on the spice front.
Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   For an 8% Witbier its doing fairly well.   I like the fact that
its not bready, but remains fairly floral and spicy.   Big, spicy, and fortunately not as bready as I would have
feared.   This is a monster of a Witbier.   Rather enjoyable given its ABV.   Packs a wallop!

It poured a nice golden orange color with a decent white head. The aroma was coriander, pepper, and a some wheatiness. The flavor was somewhat sweet. A very good Wit beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a soft pale yellow. Tight thin head. Very spicy nose, complex and reminds me of the holidays. Taste is clean but overly spicy for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle-pours effervescent cloudy orange with a nice bubbly champaign like head. spicy nose lots of corriander, grains of paradise and lemon with a hint of ginger. very nice nose! Big sweet somewhat lactic qualities in the flavors-lemon grass, orange peel, corriander, grains of paradise, with some lite alcohol notes. Pretty tart but not like a saison. long lemony finish with lingering notes of ginger and orange rind. very decent big wit!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark yellow, cloudy, crazy head. A definitely Belgian wit taste - lots of spice riding along the top of the light, wheat delivery.
