3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square - 750 ml capped bottle. light golden pour, slightly cloudy, with a thin bubbly white head that clings to the edges. Cloves and coriander in the fragrant aroma. Flavor is pleasant and smooth, some white grape fruitiness. Light spiciness perks it up a bit - hints of coriander. Some yeastiness in the back end. Mouthfeel is pleasantly thick. Overall, decent - but not worthy of a $13.99 price tag.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pour is dull straw/hay color with a large white head. Aroma is of mild citrus with hints of spices, yeast, and lighter fruits. The taste is mostly of oranges and wheat with some spice dull yeast in the finish. Light to medium bodied. Not my favorite style, but a good representation of it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. Aromas are orange peels and lemon. The taste is fantastic, a perfect balance of orange, lemon, and spices. Better than hoegaarden, probably the best white I’ve ever had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Flowery aroma with spicy and citric notes. The flavor has a grainy base, with coriander, citrus, flowery notes, and spices. Good stuff.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A bit weak and watery. Some clove...and not much else to me. Had this on tap, and was writing these ratings down expecting to see a low score when I got online. I must be missing something based on the general population. Just didn’t do it for me - was expecting something greater from Dogfish Head.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour is a hazy, gold color with a fairly small, white, creamy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace. The nose is pleasant with lots of citrus (orange, lemon), coriander, some grass, light clove, doughy yeast, and light grains. The flavor is similar but less appealing; very clovey and grainy, some lemon and coriander, maybe a faint vanilla note. The palate is light to medium, lively, mildly refreshing, and a bit creamy. The beer finishes dry, short, and and still phenolic with clove, lemony still, and some grass to keep from cloying. Fairly standard wit with all the typical notes but nothing to set it apart or make me want to try another. Not my favorite style but still just lacked any real character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, powdery malt with herbaceous notes, and sweet talcum. In mouth, a nice smooth powdery malt with smooth fruity esters, ginger, not bad. On tap at Belgian Beer Fest, Sept. 10 2011.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bread, citrus, peppery aroma, definately belgian yeast characteristics.
hazy, bright yellow in color. frothy, white foam at pour, mellows to a nice thin pad that sticks around.
medium peppered sweetness, light salty, citrus flavors. yum
light, creamy body, a little fizz from the carbonation
overall great belgian white with nice spice and citrus flavors throughout. a great summertime or outside drink!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lightly hazy pure yellow gold hue, that’s almost lager-like; pure white head as well. Sage and spice in the aroma, with some lemon-zest and coriander. Taste is very much sage for the spice at first, then some witbier spice...coriander and pepper at points. Lighter body that comes across a bit watery at points. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a great looking cloudy, bright yellow with pillowy head. Aroma is terrific, loaded with lemongrass, citrus blended in with faint banana and subtle wheaty malt, very bright and entertaining aromas. Flavor is the same but not as forth coming which was a slight disapointment, similar to getting a Asian message with no happy ending. Mouthfeel is light but yet very soft body with spritzy carbonation. Overall, I would have enjoyed more if it hadn’t have come out after the 70+ days off 100 degree heat we had in Texas....its a pretty refreshing brew....bastards...:[
