4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 Canned from Secret Santa. Thanks! Pours a farily hazy, yellow appearance with a nice, big and fluffy, white head. Somewhat herbal spicy, big straw, a bit peppery, delicious wheat malty aroma. So far, so good. Lemongrass, light citrus peel, lemon, fairly peppery, grainy straw/wheat, easy drinking flavor. I wouldn’t mind chugging a dozen of these sitting outside of a spring training baseball game in South Florida. That being said, Sunshine Wheat isn’t all that different from this and yet is significantly different in the ratings based on this CCB label on this one.

Murky pale yellow with big, foamy, white head / Bright, delicate nose of lemon, straw, coriander / Light to medium body, somewhat creamy, lively, moderately sweet, almost cloying, with full fruit, and good hop balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of lemon, pineapple, pear, resin, clove, and coriander / A touch overbearing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours from the can clear and goden with decent sized head. Aroma of yeast, spice, and a bit of pear-banana. Light mouthfeel, but lower carbonation than expected. Sweet with spicy banana bread and bubble gum. A strange taste on the finish (though i seem to get this with most whites, so maybe it’s my taste buds). Probably one of my faves for the style, but not a huge fan of this style. Nice and sweet. Not bad. Also loving thr CCB can designs.

Really nice white. Orange comes across floral. Nice coriander. Whites done well are great beers. This is a great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vienna sausage, mustard, bubble gum, Belgian yeast, tangerine aroma. Sand and seafoam can -- this is a great nod to traditional Florida. "Cracker" may perceived as a derogatory to some, akin to the "N" word, but no true Cracker resents being called a Cracker, and no Florida transplant would dare use the word. Cloudy, mellow gold, thin white head. Prominent veggie/grassy note (like chewing on a green twig), a little tangy, mineral water flavors, lightly bittered. Wet, paper bag mouthfeel, medium to slightly light body. Grassy, papery, a little pepper, a little tangerine finish. Tangy aftertaste. Think I would have preferred that this be a little sweeter, and have a little more orange prominence, but well done. Can, Market Square Liquors.

Pint at Paddywagon Sarasota. Pours a cloudy yellow. The aroma is very papery hoppy with clean clove notes. The flavor reveals tasteful esters that imply banana. The finish lingers with tons of wheaty, papery notes. It really does make me think of crackers, the literal ones. The tastefulness of the yeast and the abundance of wheat flavor makes this a good ale.

Draft sample. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, coriander and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet spice finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a refreshing beer.

Coming from someone that’s not a huge fan of Belgian wits...
Pours a crisp golden straw with a full white head. Nose is quite spiced... coriander, lemon peel, nutmeg, perhaps? Flavor is spiced with a nice citrus back. Smooth and quite drinkable. Still not my favorite style, but maybe a little less not favorite.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head and aroma of yeast and spices. Taste is sweet, of spices, yeast, fruits, and malt with a dry, spicy finish. Very drinkable, light, refreshing brew

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can, purchased from Luekens Liquors. Pours a hazy golden color, lightly effervescent; mixed-bubbled white head that readily departs. Soft notes of coriander and lemon peel in the aroma; a modest amount of pepper, spicing. Medium body; medium-high carbonation; lively acidity and bubbles along the perimeter of the tongue; pinpoint mouthfeel. While this somewhat avoids the pejorative "coriander soup" take on witbiers, there’s definitely a slight excess of things here: a hefty core viscosity and sweetness, honeyed and crystalline, with plenty of coriander and bitterness (both from citrus peel and the plentiful, seemingly, hop additions), and just a touch of lemony tartness; this is a hefty and generous witbier, for sure. Medium-length finish of white pepper and toastiness.
