3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I had this beer for the second time tonight and I totally changed my mind on it, The first time I had it I was not a fan but on tap I thought it was great.
Pours a hazy orange color with a short-lived white head.
Smells and tastes citrusy and spicy. Like your average witbeir but with just the right amount of citrusy sweetness. When they say clementine they mean it, it is sweeter than beers flavored with oranges.
Overall- Great summer beer. Refreshing citrus flavor. I’m glad I tried it a second time.

Tap. Hazy yellow orange pour with a finger of head that disappeared quickly. Orange, citrus, honey, juice and some acidity. Medium body with medium carbonation. East to drink

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle.
Pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a white foamy head, which collapses quickly. Large bubbles. Aroma of orange zest, some caramel, herbs and spices. Flavour is very fruity with orange notes, floral bitterness, some mild citrusy tartness and malts. Medium bodied, a bit foamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Good stuff. On a hot summer day this would rock even more.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured clear 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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap: super cloudy, pale straw-yellow throughout, topped with a staggeringly white layer of film that stretches across the top. Aroma is very, very yeast heavy & has huge notes of bubblegum. Light grass, spice, clove, & some faint estery banana. Not much orange... Kind of lackluster. Very thin body, even for a witbier, with faint notes of fruity esters, orange zest, lemon, yeast, & mint leaves. Bubblegum & clove (Belgian yeast esters, mostly) grow heavy with time. A pretty mediocre wit, his one is rather boring & somewhat one-dimensional... Better ways to spend your 6% ABV. Hell, I might even consider Blue Moon over this on some days.

Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a pale orange with a white head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma has spicy yeast and some fruits, especially lemons. Taste is of tangy spices, sweet light fruits and some citrus. Light bodied and very pleasant. Finishes lightly sweet with some tang. Terrific summer beverage, I would bet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2013 Hazy orange color, light head and minimal lace. A great session. Citrus, coriander, wheat, alcohol taste. Good sipper. Not too fruity, which is nice for this style. Or any style for that matter

Advent beer #3: 12oz bottle - pours gold with white head. Nose is citrus and hay. Sips adds floral notes and oranges. Obligatory oranges and Christmas nostalgia comment. For a style I usually find negligible, this is a tad hoppy and fruity: a welcome departure from boring and quaffable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (12 oz). Clear yellow/golden with a huge bubbly white head that quickly fade. Aroma is of orange peel, light spices, fainted hops and floral notes. Taste is also of orange peel, floral notes, coriander and fainted hops finish. Light body. Lively carbonation at first and then, after a few minutes, it become moderate. Herbal finish. I don’t know if the bottle is too old (it may have 2 months on it), but it’s bland and the fainted hops doesn’t help.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of Belgian yeast and clementines. Tastes like it smells, but not as robust. Solid on the palate. Alright.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a light golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was of coriander, lemonade and some rye and pine. The taste was of citrus and oranges, with a crisp, light spiciness in the finish. Tasty.
