3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of white grape some nutmeg and fresh live oak branches. Reminds me of the warmth of fall so much more than the summer. Flavor is so refreshing with it’s white wine intro without the tannins and the slightly spicy finish. Body and mouthfeel lend itself to drinking six of this piece. Thank You Dogfish Head. 2011 25oz. bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate malt aromas of light bread and grain, perfume, grass and lemon for the hops, light dough and barnyard for the yeast with hint of white wine, coriander and nutmeg. Head is small, frothy turning wispy, white with fair lacing and good legs and is almost fully diminishing. Color is hazy golden yellow. Flavor starts lightly swwt and moderately acidic, then finishes slightly acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, creamy with a soft carbonation. A very light and lively beer, and a great representation of a Witbier.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750 ml bottle (2011)) Pours hazy yellow-gold with a large white head. Aroma of citrus, spice (I can smell the lemongrass and coriander) and yeasty funk. Mouthfeel smooth, light and refreshing. Flavor of light orangey citrus and spice over the yeasty funk. Not the easiest-drinking witbier but always interesting when DFH does a Belgian style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bomber: This one pours a hazy straw-golden color. There was a bit of a white head on it that doesn’t linger long. Also, there were some "floaties" in the beer. There is a nice nose to it. Definitely coriander and yeast to the nose. Some wheat in there also, as well as some floral notes. The taste is good also. Wheat, coriander, and a slight dryness to the beer. Citrusy flavors also. Good, but a bit pricey for the style.

On tap at Proof. Spicy nose - grass and wheat. Nice crisp floral lemony pepper taste. Clean and tasty.

All sorts of conflicting aromas in this. Coriander is the dominant one. This is definitely light, and a bit wheaty. Mostly this is pretty good, but just a bit too wheat-dominant to be awesome for me. Good though.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden body with minimal white head. Refreshing aroma of lemon, citrus, and herbs. Flavors continue that theme with more lemon peel and citrus, floral and herbal notes. Hint of zest. The finish is quite quick; here and gone. Light body and full carbonation. This is perfect for the sweltering Florida humidity. Props to DFH for the tribute to 3 Fonteinen, a great brewery.

Long Island, NY - bottle shared with dad and uncle. Poured a cloudy blonde with little head and no lace. Smells of citrus and incense. Initial taste of lemongrass with slight bitterness. Midway you get the distinct coriander which ends with a slight sting. Awesome, one of my new favorites.
