3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOD 3/13/15. Pours a clear gold with a touch of amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding nose of coriander, orange and yeast.
Light medium body with a smooth texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent burst in the middle and a solid prickly finish.
The flavor profile is outstanding. Up the intensity and body a bit and this approaches world class flavor. It begins with a subtle grainy sweetness that then explodes with coriander. Orange arrives next with a touch of phenolic clove which slowly lingers past the finish. Fairly clean and very well balanced, just a tad bit tame.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a bit hazy, copper in color. Nice, abundant off white head. Aroma of coriander, citrus fruit and wheat. Taste is consistent but with the addition of some yeast notes. Refreshing, drinkable and overall a very nice beer.

Bottle from Wegman’s mechanicsburg. Pours golden with a thin white head. Solid orange notes on the nose. Solid citrus on the tongue but could use more pop. Finishes clean. Eh!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh. American attempts at this style always fall short and this is no different. Aroma was decent. Lots of big witbier spices. Orange peel and coriander were big and full. Pour was way too dark gold for this style. Taste was a mess. The spices and orange peel were overpowering and the light malt way too sweet. This beer tastes like it was 7% ABV. Mild carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt and spice. Looks like blue moon. Tasting all kinds of spice here (coriander, pepper, nutmeg). Floral notes. Sweet malt base complements. Lemon and other citrus notes. Well done.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: surprisingly dark gold out of the bottle, little yeast sediment, short white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: strong aroma of coriander, with some citrus and spice. Taste: toasted coriander seed very prominent, general belgian yeasty spice, light citrus, then a big toasty cracker finish. Finish: ended just slightly sour. Notes: Bottle at Full On. Seemed rather unbalanced, and not as zesty or refreshing as I like my witbiers to be. Average.

Bottle. Nose is coriander soup with heavy orange peel, more spice, touch of wheat (and perhaps faint vanilla/chalk?). Pours hazy yellow-orange with a short white head. Taste again mainly coriander but seems backed off somewhat, more wheat and orange light malt. Silky smooth medium body, a little oily, juicy. Very low bitterness, moderately dry overall. Fresh, clean, refreshing.
