I was not that crazy about this. I think the abv is too high. Flavor and aroma have classic wit qualities, light clove, citrus, and wheat. Well carbonated, and a large, white head. Sweet finish. Opaque gold color.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 Pours hazy gold...egg shell white head. Aroma of fruit...lemon and ginger. Flavor is citrus , ginger, lemongrass, and banana hints. Palate is medium and carbed well. Just an outsanding wit beer. Too bad blvd is not making this next year. Good way to end 2011. One of my favorites from the year

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours murky light orange with a thick white head with fairly low retention. The aromas are citrus, spices, and and sweet floral overall. The tastes are orange, coriander, and some sourness that is quite pronounced. The beer has a short tart finish. Overall, a pleasing brew that had a nice sourness I was not expecting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2012 750mL bottle, split 3 ways, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of lavender and coriander upfront, clove, floral notes, yeast. Flavour is heavy on lavender, coriander, citrus, yeast, banana and some sweet notes - alcohol is slightly noticeable. Full-bodied for the style and doesn’t suffer from the weak, citric, watery qualities in many white beers. Very enjoyable.

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.

I love how the 2011 version wasn’t as sweet, it balanced it out a bit more.

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. It’s sweet and sour, all the citrus comes out in it.
Palate is great! Good carbonation and rolls smoothly along the tongue. There isn’t much of an after taste to speak of.
Overall a very interesting brew. I’ve never encountered a beer that accomplishes what this does, giving off an aroma that isn’t 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.
