4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep hazy golden coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall microfoam whtie head - this IS exactly what a belgie white should look like, complete with a zillion small bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma of pale malt, wheat, coriander seed, curacao and a ton of yeast - this is a great smelling beer as well. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a ton of spice flavours at first, fading almost immediately to a yeast and wheat kick, then showing some alcohol, a hint of caster sugar sweetness and a nice complex, dry hay flavour. Overall, a very nice Wit, probably one of the best I’ve had in the style for some time, not sure how they could improve this one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle (batch #11, 5.4% abv) purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 24-October-2012 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-November-2012.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy straw color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is coriander and orange zest with some hints of cereal grains. Taste is a orange zest bitterness with a bit of coriander and a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation that tickles the tongue. Overall, a very full flavored witbier that is nicely balanced and highly recommended.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours a very lightly hazy yellow color with a big white head. The nose is lightly spicy with some yeast and grassy hop notes. The flavor is thin, moderate husk and wheat notes along with a subtle underlying of coriander and citrus rinds. Where’s the exponential? Finishes thin. A bit of a let down.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly floral bouquet of lillies, rosehips, clover honey, and the obligatory coriander. Clear yellow, headless. Drinks like it smells, somewhat perfumey but the hops and spices compliment each other quite well. I’m told that "white IPAs" may be the new trend as several high profile breweries have one under development. This beer certainly be considered one. Avant garde.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. hazy pale golden with one finger head. it’s a bit of a strange take on the wit style. the grains of paradise adds a unique spiciness that doesn’t entirely fit what i want in a wit, but isn’t bad either. plenty of coriander and orange peel as well.
