4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Lighten up people. This is the strangest beer ever, but I like to think of it as "unique"! Even though I usually drink Barley Wines, Quadrupels and Imperial Stouts, this lighter beer is one of my favorites because it also has so much flavor.
It tastes like tea (white or yellow) with lemon and a touch of honey. Doesnt taste like a beer at all, light, pale yellow grey color. Has undertones of coriander, malt, hay and caramel. Earthyness and freshness similar to French Verveine tea. It has very little body, but enough maltyness, fruityness and texture to make it interesting on the palate.

Poured from a bottle at durgin Park in Bosto, Massachusetts. In fact I cleaned out their stock by nights end;0
Very hazy banana in color. Two finger head with fairly good retention. minor lacing
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a murky yellow with heavy orange tints when held to a light source, thin head disappeared within one minute, hearty carbonation of tiny bubbles. Aroma of oranges, yeast, wheat, malt, and notes of coriander and pepper- very, VERY, interesting! Hits the mouth with a high-thin-body, malt is there but you are taken for a journey to the land of sweet fruit (young pineapple and mangos come to mind), middle continues that journey just fine, finish thanks you for the sip you have just taken and gives you a token to take another sip along with a note of lavender (thatís harder than HELL to create, trust me) along with a solid, crisp finish. The Granholm and OBAMA voters give it a 5, but I give it a 9 !!! It is near perfect for the style, if you donít agree, please ship one in the top 10 to me. Thank you. You will get nothing back.

Tasted at the NYC Craft Beef Festival. Hazy yellow pour, the nose caught me off guard. Smells like skunky, crystallized weed! Also some fennel, Good and Plenty candy, anise, yeasty, very complex!!! Itís light bodied with flavors of fresh mown grass, mint, sage, mouthwash (but in a good, herbal way) Very different and out of the box.

Excellent summer brew, pours slighty hazy, golden color, slight aroma, smells like a good beer. Smooth texture, clean, crisp taste, light body, earthy tone to it, some complexity as well. Average carbonation, smooth, dry, clean finish as well. Excellent Belgian Wit, right on style.

Love this beer -- the coriander, almost anise notes, simply do it for me. This, of course, is a highly personal view. Tried it one night with a few others whites and, hands down, this one worked.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold into a tumbler. Bright white micro head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Mild citrus and spice aromas. Crisp and funky with a lasting, slightly watered spiced orange finish. Best Iíve had from Cisco so far.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one caught me by surprise. Not exceptionally highly rated and not widely available, but a very good wit! Cloves and citrus zest and a light and velvety body to this one. More sweet citrus than most of this style. Finish is excellent. I think this is one of my new favorite witbiers.

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. Thereís a ton of herbal and spicy notes, I almost wondered if there was some tea leaves in here, but thereís no mention of it. I really like this aroma. The flavor is a little lighter and less interesting than the aroma, but itís 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.
