2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber pours hazy yellow with medium bubbly white head. Aroma of yeast, cider, spices, wheat, and orange peel. Taste similar to aroma pretty simple wheat and citrus into non offensive level of spices, coriander and anise, on dry finish. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is medium to dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of lemon/lime/orange zest, coriander, pepper.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation.
Ok aroma, but soda pop-like fizzy head, fizzy mouthfeel, and overall dullness makes this rather disappointing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 22 fl. oz. bottle with no date/lot code. The pour is a slightly foggy pale yellow with virtually no head but a lot of bubbly carbonation. The aroma is full of orange peel, lemon, and some thin spices. The body is smooth but also rather lightweight. The taste also has a tart zestiness going on with a bit of an aftertaste but not an unappealing one. It isn’t bad but there are better witbiers out there.

grey lady---- 22 oz bottle. Slightly hazy pale yellow. Produced a nice amount of head and lacing in my Weizen glass. Aroma of lemon, orange peel. spice, and slight wheat. Excellent citrus taste, slightly sweet, slightly bitter with minimal aftertaste. Has an almost lemonade finish, crisp and dry. It’s on the lighter side of the style, light body with medium carbonation. All of the characteristics give this brew HIGH drinkability. Thanks AirForceHops for sharing it w me. You are awesome.

bottle, sample I had at work. Pours pale yellow with off white head. Aroma is pretty fruity, some apricot, peach, orange citrus. Flavor is buttery with alot of lemon zest on the finish. This is not your typical witbier, but I don’t think its entirely out of line to classify it as one. I could come back to this.

This is described as a Belgian-style Wit, although it is definitely an Americanized version thereof. Deep straw in color, it pours with a thin head and the first sip reveals a noticeable herbal hoppy nose, perhaps indicating dry hopping. Light and spicy, there is only a faint whiff of the expected fruitiness. Instead, this is more of a spicy little pale ale with a little estery twist.

very spicy aroma with notes of lemon and pepper.
Exceptional citrus taste, slightly sweet, slightly bitter with minimal aftertaste. Not at all overpowering and excellent drinkability.

On tap at Brouwerij Lane. Hazy yellowish in color with a one finger white head. Big herbal tea aroma along with wheat and citrus. Good balance. The flavor is nice and refreshing, a good morning beer...or hungover as it is. Wheat malt, spice, herbal Earl grey tea, and lavender. Medium-light bodied and somewhat crisp with medium carbonation level. Really drinkable, if not too exciting.
