3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I guess this is one of their MANY summer seasonals. I split this one with my wife:
Ap: Very light, almost peach colored, cloudy, with about a 1 inch head. Very appropriate for the style.
Ar: Coriander first, then lemon, orange, and with a hint of pepper. I also detected a very faint grassy sort of aroma.
T: Earthy with a capital "E!" This really didn’t even taste like an alcoholic beverage at all, and all of the blended ingredients really work! The coriander really keeps the citrus in check and keeps it from being too "hot."
P: Bubbly, champagne-like, and with a very frothy lacing. Also, the head never subsided throughout the entire session.
O: I really admire the understated nature of this brew. Lots of ingredients are listed, and on the first taste, I was initially let down. After a few more sips, study, and contemplation, the brewers’ intention started to hit me in a revelatory way. A great summer Witbier.
My wife hated it of course....just like she does most beer. Oh well....

Aroma: spicy and funky; dry; Appearance: cloudy yellow pour with thin white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: lightly spicy with bready-cerealy finish more like a lager; Palate: light bodied with long, spicy finish; Overall: okay but not my favorite style. Would not get again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amarelo claro pálido de leve turbidez, espuma branca de boa formação e média persistência. No aroma cítrico misto de limão e laranja, menos coentro que a maioria das wit. Paladar de leve dulçor e nenhum amargor. Corpo leve acima da média para l estilo, positivamente, média carbonatação. Final de amargor mais citrico do que o cereal e dulçor esperados, média persistência. Bom encontrar variações em um estilo tão repetitivo.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale straw color with a moderate, white head. The lemon and citric peel hold the most attention in the nose. Hints of dough, pale wheat and malt. With a little more effort I do catch a bit of coriander and lavender. Light sweet malt in the front that lead to mild citrus. A touch sharp in the middle with bitter orange peel. A decent wit, but the sharpness distracts. A good effort on a delicate, difficult style. 8/10

Helles trübes gelb schaum ok, Geruch fruchtig würzig, der Geschmack hält absolut was es verspricht jede einzelne zutat ist im laufe des trinken deutlich zu schmecken, wobei sich der koriander besonders im Mittelteil der Pfeffer im Abgang zeigen, die fruchtigkeit begleitet durchgehend, diese bier is schon was feines aber hat auch kante!
