Finhead (1173) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2011
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.

Pouring at Belgian Beer Fest. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, light wheat. Medium bodied, heavy carbonation. Chewy wheat, but then it empties out. Musk, soft coriander, wheat, long musky bitterness.

Aroma is wheat, citrus/lemon zest and a hint of grit. The flavor is citrus/lemon zest, wheat, lime and a tangy/slightly sour finish.

Bought this on a whim as duder at the store said it was brand new, seemed to be a good value, why the hell not? I do not believe that this is 9%, I feel like that must be a typo or something but if thatís true it masks the alcohol incredibly well and I will be shit canned in short order. Aside from that, it seems to be a basic but very decent American wit interpretation. Many American brews in this style are either too bland or too citrusy, and this is neither. Its best quality is it is fairly true to the European style, although it comes off as a kind of hybrid hefeweizen/wit deal. The more I drink it the more I like it. Well-executed; unspectacular but legit. My rating is based on the assumption that this is not actually 9%. In the event that it truly is, the rating would be somewhat higher.

Pours a cloudy pale golden color. Aroma of coriander, yeast, citrus and nutmeg. Flavor is citrus, spices, and grain. A light, very easy drinking beer.

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.

Strykzone (4913) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Pour is a cloudy and a bit dirty gold with a small white head and very active carbonation. That head never faded a bit. Aroma is tart citrus fruit such as lemon along with wheat. Flavor is subdued. Orange arrives first. A bit of banana and some grain. Feel is soft in the mouth and lightly creamy. ABV is no higher than 5% which is a plus for me. Quite refreshing. Nothing to not like just not quite enough flavor to rave about.
