3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whisky 2012. Pours very hazy deep yellow with a frothy white head that is rather quick to dissipate while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and perfume-like with crackers, cloves, biscuits, banana, fruity esters, coriander, lemon zest, dry wood and white pepper. Taste is sweet, malty and yeasty with white bread, crackers, banana, cloves, candi sugar, lemon zest and coriander. Mouthfeel is smooth, round, tiny tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny bitter and tiny sour with crackers, hay, lemon zest, coriander and hints of banana bread. A nice thirst-quencher.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Hoppy Monk in El Paso, TX September 2012-pours cloudy turbulent storm darker golden yellow with a large soapy foamy white head. nose of spice on the nose, ginger and corriander in particular. peppery flavors exhibit the pepper notes with note much else, maybe some lite grain husks. this head doesnt go away, leading me to think that this keg is pretty old. Hmm, flavors are not that great especially for the kind of rating it has here on RB. I must try this in a fresh sample sometime.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white pillowy head that had great retention and excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light hay malt and a skunky yeast with notes of citrus (orange), lemon grass and a bit of coriander.
The taste was light with a strong wheat presence and a touch of lemon grass throughout, with a light note of citrus and a mild spiciness towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short while with a nice citrus yeasty taste left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a solid medium carbonation.
Overall this brew was a pretty basic Witbier. Tasty, refreshing and easy to drink, most definitely worth having a few...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Slightly chunky, hazy, pale yellow pour with frothy white head. Aroma of fresh orange zest, orange juice, lemon, white pepper, spice. Taste is slightly fruity, some wheaty flavors, fresh grain, oranges, citrus zest, lemon. Palate is light with medium and very sparkly carbonation. Truly unique and delicious, this one blows the witbier style out of the water as far as remaking a style goes.
