I like this wheat a lot although the tart or sourness of the beer is slightly surprising and doesn’t seem to fit the style. A medium bodied, golden looking beer with typical spicing otherwise.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 8/9/08. 22oz bomber. First pour, golden hue, slight sediment. Sparse ring of white head. Bright citrus nose. Nuances of Oranges and lemons. Melon and a slight pepper undertone. Medium bodied and very drinkable. Crisp wheats. Bright citrus blast. Slightly toasty. Moderate effervescence. Touch candy sugar. Lingering and slightly bitter finish. The fruity hops blend seamlessly with the citrus yeasty character. Spicy note from the coriander. Second pour holds more sediment and a thicker head. And a brighter yeast estery flavor. Solid! This is a definite bright spot for the local StL scene.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle: Sunny orange pour with a finger thick, whipped white head. The nose is full of orange sweetness and jumps right out of the glass. The sweetness dominates the body as well, leading into a drinkable, creamy body. This thing is loaded with coriander and candied orange, as well as lots of esthery banana, vanilla and lemon. The wheaty body is a great way to deliver the complexities. Very drinkable and a nice example of a style that often becomes soggy with adjuncts.

Good looking beer: bright yellow, hazy. Lemon-y fruity aroma (it definitely doesn’t need a lemon garnish, by the way). High carbonation, nice and full for the style. I definitely taste the coriander, I agree with description...nothing wrong with traditional.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is a stunning coriander and candi sugar. Flavor is not as stong but again lots of corriander and lemon peel with a nice mix of candi sugar and a nice wheat backbone. 22oz bottle named half wit wheat. I might want to take the drive down to st. gen to check this place out.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I really liked this one. Thinner pour with a clear gold body and a bubbly smalle white head. Aroma of orange citrus, spicey, grassy wheat, yeast and juice. Flavor of honey, orange, slight earth, vanilla and dry grains. Solid but judging how off my rating is I may possibly have had to much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. The body is bright gold with lots of haze. A large slightly off white head compliments the deep yellow body. The aroma is orange popsicles and a little bit of corriander. The taste is light orange peels with the corriander lightly behind that. It is one of the stronger orange flavored wits I have tried and it’s a godo thing in this case. The finish is dry and crisp, but leaves a little bit of abc gum. Nicely made and it exceeded my expectations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Dispenses a lightly hazed, yellowish straw-hued body with a small-sized, white head.
Smell: First, the spicing of coriander is quickly apparent in the nose. Then, in glide some notes of soft wheat and citrus fruits.
Taste: Upfront crisp white wheat taste with a light level of sweetness and minor background hint of fresh grain. Orangey citrus character and fruitiness. Plenty of the added coriander spice character, though not quite as forward as hinted at in the nose. Drying on the finish thanks in part to the crackling carbonation.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: A decent brew from Charleville that would make for a fine mid-Summertime refresher.
