draft @ redlight redlight. Very floral nose, citrus and coriander with chamomile notes. Pours a very hazy yellow with a thin white head. Crisp citrus upfront with coriander and hints of nutmeg with floral flavors as well and hints of lemongrass in the finish. Solid wit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Dan Journal #444. Tasted 4/7/11. 750ml bottle. Hazy and sedimented body with a golden hue. Finger width of clinging off-white head. Aromas of oranges and lemony citrus. A bitter grassy rye note and an ever so faint whiff of strawberries. Medium bodied and rounded but with a very bright 7Up effervescence and sweetness. Rounded bready, wheaty malts and berry malts. Great complexity and hits the palate and tongue at all spots. Bright and bitter. Citrus and doughy malts. Solid session!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of lemon/orange zest, coriander. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A very straightforward, ordinary rendition. Which, considering the brewery, is a good thing. Thankfully it’s not 9% and loaded with Sudanese buffalo hooves, Laotian yams, and Guatemalan beetle grubs. A bit overspiced with citrus, kinda watery, and the sweetness lingers too long, but overall it’s decent.

This wit is smoking, it pours golden with a fluffy white head. the nose is all coriander and spice, while the palate is the same. One of the best wits in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big foam in the pour, murky yellow in color, smells like citrus and coriander.
Really tasting the orange, and coriander, those 2 flavors dominate, covering up some of the other possible flavors from the yeast and other things, but very light and refreshing with some nice complexity to it, as always Dogfish puts an interesting spin on the beer, worth trying, probably a one-off for me though.

A very hazy light golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass.
It looks like grapefruit juice in a glass.
Aroma of coriander, wheat malt, citrus fruits, orange peel, lemongrass, and orange. Taste of wheat, lemon, citrus fruits, coriander, pepper, and a dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... Cloudy, light yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. The bouquet is spicy, fruity and grainy – pale malt, coriander and pear. Light-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. The perfectly balanced flavor is mildly spicy, thin and watery with a crisp, clean, refreshing finish.
