3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during MN Gathering II in Maplewood, MN and shared by beastiefan2k. From a 22-oz bottle pours a hazy golden straw brew with a nice size white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of lemon zest, coriander, multi-grain malt with wheat, a hint of clove and some white pepper. Taste is medium bodied with flavors of golden grain malt, a hint of banana esters, coriander, orange zest and some light clove. Finish is semi-dry with some floral and coriander aftertaste. A little more on the dry side to most other Witbiers but still pretty decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Nose of heavy coriander and lemongrass, pours hazy pale yellow with a creamy, dense bright white head. Light body but not watery, touch of bread, lots of lemon juice and lemon peel, very smooth with supporting crispness, thankfully not coriander soup, but with a very distinct herbal-floral character that piques the interest and draws in for more. Zesty Snapple-like tea note, clean, super refreshing!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale straw straw body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is quite interesting and really complex for a Wit. There’s a ton of herbal and spicy notes, I almost wondered if there was some tea leaves in here, but there’s no mention of it. I really like this aroma. The flavor is a little lighter and less interesting than the aroma, but it’s still really spicy and nice with a fairly heavy citrusy note. Light wheat base with a crisp finish. Light bodied with fine fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice simple Wit, much better than average for the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy yellow-golden color with a medium sized soapy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was faint citrus and must with a light vague spicy undertone. The flavor was tangy orange and lemon with light undertones of must, pepper and cardboard. The finish was short with lemon and yeast. Medium body. Pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can - looks pretty good - hazy gold with a frothy head - very dry and kind of uncommon for a wit - it’s a spiced wheat, all right, but it tastes like sage, clove, white pepper - not much else going on character wise aside from the strong spice character - meh.
