Very easy on the palate, but not too interesting taste-wise. Taste is a bland wheat combination, lots of lemon and spices as well. Medium thickness, no bitterness to mention, goes down super easy. Not too shabby, but not very complex either.

Cloves, lemon and orange peel in the aroma. Potting soil and spices. Those cloves kick in.
Appearance is cloudy, hazy bright yellow. Pillowy white head.
Flavor is Belgian spice; orange and apricot. Has a kind of cooked vegetable finish. Not awful but not great.
Palate is ashy and sandpapery. It’s just a little off.

The Witte is dark copper with a slight, quick dissipating white head. Some lemony citrus and spicy coriander aromas are distracted by an slight plastic overtone. The taste consists of a fairly comfortable, lightly sweet malt. It’s medium bodied, but with a low bitterness, fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish. A little muddled, but not all together misguided Witte. It works in that its both refreshing and more substantial than a Witte, which would make it ideal for a post-shovelling beer, if anything.

Draught at the Station Taproom: Aroma of wheat, orange peel, coriander, and lemongrass. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Hazy. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, lemongrass, orange peel, and slight spices. Light to medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Wheat and lemongrass finish.

Bit too cloudy for a blonde witte. Draft at the Dutch. Spices outdo wheat. Head is nice and bright white. Nose is yeasty. finish is thin and on the watery side.

On Tap @ Fredonia. Subtle hop aroma. Clear yellow body, no head; poor carbonation. Crisp, tart flavor balanced with subtle hop and citrus. Easy to drink.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Aroma is dusty along with a few weak notes of lemon. The flavor is mild wheat and some light lemon. No sign of the coriander. Fairly smooth on the palate and easy to drink, but then again, so is a glass of water. Forgettable.

20110424 12oz bottle from either SL or JC BR, can’t recall. Took a bit of agitation to get the yeast unsettled from the bottle, but once done it poured a creamy pale yellow with lasting white head of even, lasting foam. Aroma is wheaty, a bit DMS-ish, some hay, and orange. Aggressive eff, very dry, medium-light (especially for a wheat). Grainy flavor is a bit on the sweet side up front but quickly drying and fruity. Not much spice beyond coriander and a lot of citrus. Fairly plain, even for an American white.

Watery and buttery in general flavor. Some hints of malt, citrus, and a touch of spice. Not a great witte.
