2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle. Label makes it sound like this is limited - I wonder how fresh it is? Minimal to virtually none white head. Bubbles on the side of the glass. Mildly hazy yellow color. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Decently dry texture. Not a great aroma. Barely any orange-peel aroma, but the coriander spice sticks out a bit too much. Mild spiced taste. Doesn’t taste fresh, would probably be much better if it was..

22oz bottle from chucks and the nose is lots of coriander now that some of the fruit has fallen away, still plenty bubbly and light but the coriander is all up in my business like the mavs beating the cHeat. This is a solid flavorful wit but needs more body to be really good

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from Root Cellar. Pours a cloudy, bright orange-gold color with a huge, rocky eggshell white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of orange citrus, coriander, banana, wheat, and sweet, bready malts. Flavor is pretty much exactly what the nose indicated- sweet, spicy, and wheaty. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy, wheaty mouthfeel and abundant soft carbonation. Decent Belgian wit, and of course I’m going to support any beer that says, "Fuck you, LeBron James" from Cleveland.

Bottle at Max and Jess’s place. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet wheat and crackery grain. Toast and crackers. Sweet and grainy, but somewhat empty, still drinkable though. Grainy and crisp.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle from Tyler.
Pours bright hazy yellow gold with a small whitish head that recedes quickly to a thin collar and a stream of bubbles feeding a small clump in the middle.
Aroma is spicy with coriander and lemon zest alongside faint banana sweetness. The malts are very pale and grainy in the nose.
The taste is a mix of the coriander and bitter hops. Nit much citrus at all and the finish is very bitter and dry. There is a strong grainy malt presence and little fruitiness at all.
The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and dry with an overly bitter aftertaste.
Not a bad beer but only an average wit.
