Enjoyed a bottle outside with my fish tacos at the Boca Raton Resort, FL. Belgian spices, orange and yeast add nicely to this Wit.

Interesting with the mix of spices and flavors going on. Admittedly this isn’t my favorite style, but it’s a very unique spin on it. Can defo taste the orange peel and coriander and the finish is really dry and grassy. Was my first beer from Cigar City and I like that they’re doing something different.

Old rating. Hazy dark gold. Orange peel, coriander, strong wheat basis. Lightly spiced with big citrus. Tasty and super sessionable.

Citrus, chlorine and yeast on the nose. The taste is light citrus. Slightly bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Okay beer and easy to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottom of the can stamped 10/15/14.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow color glossing underneath a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipated leaving some light clingy lacing sliding quickly into the beer.
The smell had a sweet citrus, sweet cracker, light tangerine and a little bit of yeasty goodness all combining nicely.
The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors to blend nicely. A light sweet citrus/yeasty aftertaste bleeds into the finish somewhat dry.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation was a little more subdued than most witbiers but I’m thinking that’s probably the age of it that may have caused that.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good witbier that I would love to try again and preferably fresh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours like it should in the glass: a cloudy canola yellow with a thin slice of white foam. Nice in the nose but nicer on the tongue. Orange peels, sharp wheat & coriander spice dominate. What i like most is it avoids the mis-guided North American trend to turn the style into a spice bomb. Reminds me most of blanche de chambly from Quebec. Goes down so well in the Florida sunshine & makes me forget that I’ve only slept 9 hours in two days. Recommended.

Can. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is wheat, fruity malt, and citrus. Thin mouth with strong wheat, citrus, banana, crisp and crushable, very nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma has light white pepper, light yeast, lemon, white bread, light clove... Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation. Light white pepper, lemon, light orange, very light clove... Nice balance, and easy drinking though it'll never be my favorite style. Crisp and refreshing. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 2-17-15. Sharp, tart, lemony, salty, slightly sour, almost briny, yeasty aroma. Quite nice smell. Orange peel scent. Pours a hazy, cloudy brass or yellowish gold with a moderate amount of off-white head. Light effervescence. Pretty good lacing. Looks good. In the final pour, it’s opaque from cloudiness. Very wheaten, yeasty, milky, dry taste. Tastes more like a hefeweizen than a wit except for the citric tartness. Lemon and a touch of dry spice in the flavor. Slightly mineral. Dry finish and aftertaste. Light to medium body. Fillingly frothy and grainy in the palate. One of the better wheat beers I’ve had. Seems more German than Belgian in influence. Complex and well above average for the style.
