3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is some strange business. It is not a witbier at all, even though Crazy Mountain paid attention to details most people ignore like actually using unmalted wheat. However, the spice is all kinds of different. There is a big list of stuff on the side of the can but what I get out of this mostly is a sort of mellow cinnamon warmth, perhaps it is the chamomile. It is interesting an interesting sort of flavor for something I think of as a light, refreshing style but itís pretty tasty.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow color with a moderate frothy white head. Nose is quite spicy with some orange citrus and coriander really coming through. Taste is light and wheaty with a little bit of the citrus coming through. A lot of flavor, but not my style.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter)
From: Wilburís Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.
Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013
Consumed: May 2, 2013
Poured a golden clear color with one finger of gray head that dissipated 75 percent within minutes. Very bubbly underneath. Minimal lacing on the sides. Average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled apple, grapes, green tea. I try for more sniffs, but it keeps coming back to apple. Can get some orange rind and tangerine as well. Fruity and refreshing. Also cinnamon and other spices.
Tasted like a mix of apple and green tea. Cinnamon comes in there as well. Reminded me a bit of Apple Jacks cereal. Also lemon grass.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, watery, clean and refreshing finish.
Nice beer for the summer. I may have rated this a bit low.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with a thick and fluffy white head that dissipates slowly. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet spices and fruit. Light body with flavors of citrus, wheat and a touch of spicy yeast. The finish is semi-sweet with a short fruity aftertaste. Average overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can thanks to robloc. Pouras a hazy pale yellow with a thin white head of foam. The aroma has some bready candyish sweetness. Definitely getting some watermelon jolly rancher. Maybe its green apple. Versus sweet with a doughy finish. Did not expect the jolly rancher.

Hazy yellow with a modest brigth white head and ok lace. Wheat aroma with lemony highlights. Sweetish wheat flavor with lemon and herbal tea. Light body, lively carbonation, slight stickiness on the palate, and a crisp dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of typical witbier, orange, wheat, and coriander, with an added floral note. Taste follows, chamomile comes through quite a bit. Decent American version of the style, ready to drink and sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ox. can pours a hazy golden color with small white head but good lacing. Aroma has the usual suspects for the style: coriander, wheat and orange peel, but also something like chamomile. Very enjoyable and flowery. Body is medium to light with average carbonation and a nice crisp mouthfeel. Taste is slighlty sweet and spicy at first with a mildly bitter finish. A very pleasant, well-balanced session beer.

Sampled on tap at Crazy Mountain on 12/27/12. Pours a light yellow color with white head. Coriander, wheat, floral flavors. Very floral, makes for an interesting floral wit. Refreshing, a nice beer for after skiing.
