3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy straw with a small foamy head. Delightful aroma of wheat, coriander, honey, and lime. Taste was a little too light and effervescent for me, but the flavor was intriguing. Wheat, coriander, melon, lime, honey, grapefruit, melon, more wheat, and a lime-citrus soft bitterness. Not bad, would be awesome with more body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery in Denver, CO. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty cool with some zesty lime, juicy grapefruit, a light pale malt and wheat sweetness, a touch of sweet agave, a light yeast spice with some coriander, and some herbal tea. Flavor is thinner and a bit muddled, but not bad. Lime zest, herbal tea, a light wheat and pale malt sweetness with a touch of bread, a touch of coriander, and some citrus. Finishes clean and a bit tart from the lime with a light sweetness and touch of spice. Medium length aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, an interesting take on a wit. A style I find pretty boring, but this certainly brought some intriguing flavors. The aroma was pretty nice and worked better for me, but the flavor was decent. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2012 Tap @ brewery. Hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly spicy (yeast and adjuncts), lime, orange citrusy, coriander, zesty aroma. Pretty refreshing flavor but they just put way too much bullshit in. If you are going to do a lime variety of a witbier, don’t put agave and a whole spice rack in with it. All the adjuncts just get muddled and you get a refreshing, well made witbier with a major spice rack taste. Fuck it. Discard all the adjunct shit in this, maybe keep the lime, and you’d have a good beer. i guess it should be noted that I pounded a pint of this in less than ten minutes, so it wasn’t too bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma has notes of big herbal lime and basil type notes, hints of biscuit, bread, lots of sour fruits with grapefruit, lime, some spices come through, wow crazy smelling. Taste is not quite as good and seems muddled. Lots of citrusy fruits, hints of spice and herbal notes, the lime comes back with some slight sweet bread, finishing fairly sweet. Seemed gimmicky, and too many flavors involved.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at CK - fairly dry for a wit, which is typically a good thing for me - however, the general wit character is washed ou by an overly bitter citric character, with a lot of bitter flavors of grapefruit, lime zest - this character is compounded by an almost sour chamomile note - nothing else is really detectable over these qualities - the finish, in particular, is particularly sour, tasting almost like straight up grapefruit juice - too many damn adjuncts, which seems to be a trend these days - can’t anyone just make a regular effing wit anymore? - my second strike in a row from this brewer - uh-oh.
