3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
$8 bomber pours a cloudy yellow with a decent head of small white bubbles.and some lacing. Orange peel, lemon, and coriander are detectable to the nose. Aroma is the same, The citrus flavor comes off sweet on the tongue. Very lively carbonation and medium body. A very refreshing Witbier, but maybe not up to the hype.

One of the few Witbiers I have had that wasnít home-brewed that I enjoy. Pours a light straw with very small head, some lacing. Nice floral and citrus aroma. Tastes of coriander and orange peel with some grassy notes in the background. Finishes with the floral notes.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks awesome poured in a tall glass, enjoyed the light body but obvious attention to fine detail. Everything here is subtle and chrisp but there is no protruding alcohol flavor. This isnít going to blow any minds and may not be worth the presentation but Iíde say try it for yourself if someone else is buying!

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 10-2011. Poured into a tulip. Temp is around 40 Degrees F.
A - Five finger head with a mix of tight and big bubbles. Crystal clear head. The beer itself is a mild yellow with lots of head and sediment floating around
S - Itís easy to pick out the coriander, oranges and Lemon grass. Lemon may be the biggest smell followed by other citrus scents. Nice floral scent.
T - The coriander and citrus are pretty mellow when you taste it. Thereís some pine or maybe birch taste in here. Itís not too extreme. Tastes are sort of just there but nothing very pronounced or worth pointing out.
M - Thereís a ton of carbonation in this beer! Huge carbonation and a swish makes the liquid turn completely into bubbles. Ginger lingering as well. It stays with you for a while.
O - Another DFH let-down. Itís alright but I bought two and traded one of them. Glad I did as this is just a let down.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale straw color....not much head. VERY effervescent. Subtle banana and clove in the nose. A nice light body with all the right character of a Wit. Well done.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into an English pint glass from a bottled dated 2011 108 3.
A: Very pale straw colored body, on the pour I wondered if my bottle was ruined somehow with how pale it poured. The head is thick but fluffy and rocky creating a mess on the glass.
S: Spring smelling, lots of lemon and orange citrus with a slight spice to it. Very appealing, it reminds me of spring.
T: Very bright and refreshing, lots of lemon in here weaving in and out with the oranges and a zesty coriander spice underlies it all. Very refreshing and easy to drink.
M: Light bodied but very carbonated, even the smallest sip expands in my mouth with fizzy bubbles. Very lively and exciting!
O: This is a great beer for anyone. Itís very inoffensive and easy to drink and will be a great bridge for those who like Blue Moon to try and ease them into better flavored craft beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy, golden color with a white head. Aroma is of coriander, lemon, and some wheat. Very well balanced with the coriander and lemon up front and the wheat and yeast on the finish. Crisp and plenty of carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy golden pour with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was fresh orange peel, lemon and light spice. Flavors were similar, nice notes of orange and more citrus, light hoppy bitterness, just oh so refreshing. Carbonation was nice and full, made for a decent mouthfeel. Left a lingering citrus on the palate. Great stuff.
