1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Been drinking a lot of Belgians lately including my homebrew. This doesn’t taste like a Belgian to me. It’s been a while since I’ve had Anchor Steam, but it reminds me of that. Oh well. Cheap bombers are fun to try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle
I had not heard of Cathedral Square before stopping at a store in the Saint Louis area. I figured that it was low risk and could be solid. While not a great wit it has enough flavor to make me think about checking out the brewery again if I am in the area.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden carbonated base bubbles underneath a brisk white head. Green apples, cotton candy, and yeast are robust. The ephemeral aromas are like walking along a well traveled grassy path through a field.
Flavor / Palate - White pepper bites at the palate almost immediately. Carbonation, yeast, sourdough, and lemon zest tickle the back of the throat before a tangy finish. A bit spicy for a wit this has a waxy finish that I find myself indifferent about. While not a bad release it just has a predictable feel that gets boring after the first pint.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy, yellow pour with a fluffy white head. It has an herbal and slightly spicy aroma with a hint of lemon. The light body has a thin texture with lively carbonation. The mildly sweet taste is refreshing and finishes slightly dry.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. This bottle almost exploded when I popped the cap. It sounded like I was opening a bottle of champagne. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a small bit of bright white head. Aroma of citrus and wheat. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly sour. Some nice citrus notes in there. Medium bodied with a creamy yet sticky texture. Very fizzy carbonation with a long finish. Overall, not too bad. I would definitely drink it again for the $3 price tag.

Bottle @ home, picked up in KC. Pours a cloudy, orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Mildly citrusy, mildly spicy, bready wheat malty nose. Fairly tart, mildly spicy, citrusy, wheat malty flavor. Tart, wheat aftertaste. I’m not too impressed.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright gold orange colored beer with a large off white head. The nose has lots of lemons and a little bit of clove. There is also a little bit of sweet almonds. The taste is slightly bitter with a little bit of lemon peel. There is also some clove in the finish. Hints of raw dough are a little yeasty, especially in the aftertaste.

Courtesy of Strykzone via a trade. Thanks. Pour is a hazy gold with a white head and light lacing. Nose is citrus and wheat. Body is light and mouthfeel is smooth. The flavor is citrus with a hint of banana,. Not much finish. OK, but a bit underwhelming

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy gold with a thin white head and light lacing. Aroma is very spicy, clove and coriander and a bit of black pepper. Flavor reflects the aroma, only with the addition of mild banana and lemon zest notes. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and there is a slight metallic note 3/4 through.
