3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with two fingers of thick frothy white head. Nose shows a significant spice profile and definite floral quality. A touch of sweet citrus rind shows through as well . Yeasty notes with some bread dough.
Way too much spice in the flavor. Takes on a musty/dusty character and dominates the flavor. A touch of citrus rind but mostly spice. Medium light body and dry on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A- Oranges, chamomile, cinnamon, bleach.
A- Orange color, hazy liquid, minimal head.
T- Oranges, coriander, chamomile, wheat.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish.
O- Decent wit. I like the addition of the chamomile, but the coriander is seemingly muted. Mostly orange tasting with some various spices like cinnamon and nutmeg added in. Soft on the palate and easy to drink. Nothing about it stands out, but nothing about it is worth forgetting either.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from Middlebury. Pale orange cloudy with lasting white head and lace. Spicy herbal orangey coriander aroma. Very sweet orange with tangy wheat grassy mild coriander then ruined by grains of paradise and chamomile. The finish is just disgusting. I have yet to enjoy a beer with grains of paradise in it. Who thinks this tastes good? Anyhow...nice light body and soft mouthfeel. Unfortunately, gross.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy golden amber. World class head volume, retention and normal lacing.
Light nose of coriander, orange and chamomile over a weak biscuit. As it warms, it becomes much sweeter and has hints of clove.
Light medium body with a texture that approaches creamy. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
This is a uniquely flavored wit that is intense, slightly complex and somewhat balanced. It begins with a blend of flavors from the nose that separate very little. It has a general tart flavor that flows to clove and coriander in the middle. The middle has a very subtle bitterness that slowly becomes phenolic. The finish is a lingering phenolic that slowly becomes medicinal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Can] Golden pour with a slight amount of haze to it. Coriander and chamomile are evident in the otherwise light and floral aroma. Sweet grains, wheat malt, lemon and sweet orange, coriander and faint vanilla in the flavor. Spritzy carbonation. Decent body for the style. A pleasant surprise! Tasting notes from 9/2014.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ The Hop Grill. Hazy medium yellow, thin white head. Very tea-like aroma and character, the chamomile really dominates (I had no idea that this was brewed with chamomile, but that’s what I jotted down in my notes!). There is orange citrus here too, but the perfumey hay-like character of the chamomile seems a bit much. Just ok.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow orange that brings a small head of foam. Some lacing.
The smell is kind of weird. I do get some coriander with a hint of cloves, but it has a strange fruity aroma that I can’t quite put my finger on.
The taste also has the strange taste. .could be lime. It is somewhat distracting and overwhelms the "normal" flavours one expects from a Wit.
Fairly light in body, lively carbonation.
Thanks Jacob for the chance to try it!
