3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Pours a lighter hazed, straw yellow, pale golden colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is pretty solid. Lemon-grass, oranges, wheat, and fresh coriander. Flavor is similar. Leans a bit more toward the lemon-grass up front. More oranges and coriander with a lightly sweetened, crisp wheat offering a solid balance. Finishes clean and dry with a light bitterness and a growing coriander, lemon-grass aftertaste that lingers for a fairly lengthy duration. Light, smooth, crisp body and a medium-high, somewhat lively, but soft feeling carbonation. Overall, Iím usually not a big fan of witbiers, but this one is pretty solid. Nice, fresh citrusy flavors with a pleasant grass and coriander spicing. Easy drinking and really nice body make this refreshing and very enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy light straw color with quite a bit of particulate and pillowy white head. Aroma is of orange, coriander and lemongrass. Taste is orange, coriander, lemongrass, and lemon with light malt backbone. Very perfumey but definitely a very taste beer. Would love to see this in a 6 pack.

Pours a straw golden color with lots of particulate and a medium white head which leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is orange, lemongrass, coriander, and almost some chamomile. Taste is much the same. Very smooth and flavorful. Would be great on a hot summer day.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Pours pale yellow with a thin white head at first but becomes an opaque, thick orange once the bottom yeast in the bottle is agitated and poured into the glass. Tons of yeast sediment in the glass as well. The aroma contains some light citrus as well as an almost off-puting aroma that can only be described as "womenís hair salon". The flavor is much better, however. I assume itís the coriander that gives this beer a slightly peppery flavor and overwhelms the beer, but not the palate, in overtaking the orange flavor. This is incredibly drinkable and is one of the best Witbiers I have tried. Outstanding taste and would rate higher if not for the aroma.
