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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A tall frothy smooth white head settles to a solid ring and large thin island over a hazed golden straw body
Woody dank herbaceous notes initially flood the aroma leading to juicy, creamy, lemony tropical characteristics building into banana then to a layer of smooth green melon, a subtle cleansing influence from the grains of paradise keeps the creamy notes moving on a smooth medium weight body with well restrained carbonation, the residual offers just a touch of tart yogurt as the fruit characteristics rotate through
Solid intensity, decent complexity, mostly smooth transitions with the herbal components sticking out a bit at this age, would love to see this in the lil’ smokie format

2014 release. Cloudy straw body, with a soapy white head. Light lacing. Nose is herbaceous and spicy - slightly citric. Taste is lightly tart, again citric, and many of the spicy notes from the nose aren't apparent. Velvety texture, yet also crisp on the palette. Really nice summertime beer - very reminiscent of a seasoned gose.

Hazy yellow with huge head. Aroma is clove, various other spices. Taste has a huge lemony-sweet quality. Spices in the background as well as banana. Creamy, slick mouth feel. Overall the aroma and taste are both a little disappointing, but this is a good beer. Interesting, to say the least.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky amber yellow with a nice white head with good lacing. Aroma is floral, spicy and fruity with a big scent of lavender and the cardamom with citrus and lemon. Taste is similar with the citrus flavors blending with the sweet and spicy coriander and cardamom. Lavender brings a definite floral aspect and there is a noticeable tart character. Finishes with some spices and a bit of tartness. Light/ medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A unique tasting witbier with some depth of flavor but was a bit much for my palate. The spicing overpowered the flavor for me. Had on tap at Rock and Run Brewery.

750 ml bottle, thanks going to Skyview on finding this from my want
list, big thanks Bob! Bottled in April 2011. Pale malts with plenty of citrus and zesty yeast.
Flavor is right in line with the nose. Citrus upfront with zesty yeast and sweet malty finish. The carbonation is real soft with the texture on the lightly chewy side.
Balanced well. After all this time in a bottle it still is a highly drinkable Wit. Glad to have had a chance to try it!

2011 bottle on the disquento rack at a local liquor store. From notes. Loads of citrus with a decent spicy pepper kick. Not bad, especially for $3
