Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. I rolled my bottle and plenty of dark sediment mixed making the pour cloudy. It was kind of white gold and sported a nice white head. This had an aroma of wheat, and coriander. The flavor was very nice and it was a generally sweet beer. Pepper grew throughout and oranges were pleasant. Belgian yeast was very light as were the spices in general. This was a perfect beer on a hot summer day after a hot day at work and then golf. But it was a quality offering regardless of what i did today. Nicely done.

Another old-ass (June 2012) beer from Huntington Beach Total Wine...shame on me for not checking the batch number first! - Pours lightly hazy gold with a huge creamy off-white head. Nose is fruity and lightly spicy, with cardamom, coriander and lemon in the forefront. Dry malt with mineral notes. Taste drops off considerably from the surprisingly zesty nose. Itís soapy and a bit sharp and astringent, with alcohol notes and bitter citrus peel. The spiciness is there but not overbearing, and the citrus is prominent throughout. The same dry/mineral malt is in the backbone, but itís overpowered by the sharpness. Body is fairly thin with biting carbonation. Seems like this would have been a pretty nice beer that was likely ruined by sitting on a warm shelf for 8-9 months.

Citrus and earthy yeast aroma. Citrus and peppery flavor; some "earthy" yeast flavor--not as prominent as in the aroma. Banana/bubble gum flavor, and some light bready malt.

Sampled on 3/23/2011. This Witbier pours a light yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy and yeasty. A light to medium bodied Witbier. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. Spicy, notes of coriander and orange peel, and some pepper. Very drinkable. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp, and a touch dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
