4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: floral boquet, mostly clover, yeast & dough, pretty strong, very pleasant aroma; Appearance: frothy, white head upon pour, cloudy, golden yellow with ample sediment throughout; looks like a meal; Taste: in general, a blend of Leinieís Summer Shandy and Blue Moon, however, in sum, it is definately superior than either; I typically donít like it when a spring floral boquet tastes like youíre chewing on a clover, itís close, but the tart lemony citrus mutes some of the strength of the springtime boquet; Palate: good carbonation, medium bodies bordering on light, sweet and sour aftertaste, very drinkable, I drank the whole bottle!; Overall: very, very good, I will definately try it again, especially as weíre headed into spring and the sunshine weather, definately would recommend it

Pours a golden wheat color with a large white head. Smells like burned denim (you know when you burn the the frayed parts on your jeans). Pretty well balanced taste with a bit of sweetness. Has an IPA feel to it without the bitter. This is one of the more complex Belgian White Iíve had. Not an amazing beer but a good one.

Poured from champaign bottle - Incredibly refreshing sun-drenched ale reminds me of the forthcoming summer; this beer is the essence of the season. Reminds me of a farmhouse ale. Because Iím greedy, I would love to see this "imperialsized."

Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a tulip. The body is a hazy yellow-golden color with a white head and some pretty good lacing. The nose is nice with some light citrus notes--mostly orange and lemon. A bit of grain as well. The flavor is pretty nice though a bit one-dimensional with citrus. Good, light body and nice carbonation. Drinks quite well and is a nice hot-weather brew.

Congrats to Dogfish Head for brewing a beer with less than 12% alcohol. And this one is great. Traditional Belgian white with plenty of wheat taste and spice.

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 itís 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 itís 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.
