4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is orange peel and spicy coriander. Very spicy and strong in the aroma. Belgian Brett funk.
Gorgeous orange-yellow, glows like primordial amber. Decent, lasting lacing. Tons of tiny bubbles of carbonation. Absolutely beautiful.
Flavor is sweet and sour at first. Some white wine and champagne. The Belgian funk is so mild and mixes with the spice and the sweetness.
Feels fizzy like champagne. Creamy and thick. Outstanding texture. A great, sweet, summery brew with just enough thickness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy golden orange with a white head. Sweet malty aroma with some fruity sweetness and some spice. The flavor has some sweet citrus like fruit and a spice profile that reminds me of juniper. A light tart sourness is present... I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be there but it works rather well. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is light with some mild hints of wheat and spice. Flavor isn’t a witbier. Sour and yeasty at the beginning with a dry and grainy middle. Aftertaste is bitter and sour. Not good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz - Looking at the ingredient list (spices, honey, juniper) I expected more of a nose than was there. Good color but no real lace. Sourness predominated, yeast showed up at the end. Fun but forgettable.

resh bomber from Premier. Pours cloudy orange with some retaining head. Above average mouthfeel, yeasty and well integrated wheat, this was surprisingly tasty and drinkable. On the sweeter side, but a nice summer beer.

Custom Brewcrafters "Barry" Double Wit is a very cloudy dull golden ale with a dense, blotchy off-white head. It leaves outstanding lacing on the glass. It has a huge aroma that’s mostly of clove, but banana bread is present too. It’s medium-full bodied, smooth and soft with a slick finish. It mostly tastes like banana/clove, but there is some juniper bitterness and some funkiness. The flavor is well balanced. It’s a pretty unique beer.
