madvike (3119) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 2, 2013
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.

NachlamSie (3023) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2014
Bomber from Highland Wine & Liquor. Iíve had some trouble finding the information for the batch numbers for the Epic Denver brewery. I need to dig around their site some more. I wasnít expecting a whole lot out of this one, as Epicís Belgian beers seem to be hit or miss for me with a few more misses than hits. This, however turned out to be one of the best witbiers I have had. The pour is very light in color, very textbook for the style, with significant cloudiness in the body. The aroma is wheaty and grainy with just hints at orange peel and savory spice. The palate is pretty full, but not sticky. The grains come through nicely here, imparting raw wheaty flavor in a good way. There are suggestions of clove, light fruits, gentle citrus and a nice, drying finish. There arenít any overbearing yeasty notes and no extra stickiness or sweetness, despite the somewhat higher alcohol content for the style. Honestly, this is quite a nice Belgian wit.

BOLTZ7555 (2985) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Golden/milky pour with a nice ivory cap. Banana, coriander, orange peel, candied citrus, dough, yeast, and honey. Medium mouthfeel. Solid.

Gription79 (2682) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 1, 2012
22 ounce bottle. The aroma and flavor are overloaded with coriander. Malt notes are mild. A thin body with mild carbonation. Not much going on with this beer.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Batch 16: Whitened blonde. Tightly-packed frothy white foam exhibits superb retention. Clean and elegant aromas of cardamom, lemongrass, white pepper, sugar cookie/ginger bread. Faint whiff of airy phenols and flowers. Fine and creamy carbonation. Initially well rounded and slippery with grassy wheat and lemongrass accompanying a pronounced saliva-inducing lactic tartness. Subdued, predominantly floral hops take a backseat to the artful spice medley. Despite their intensity, the tastefully incorporated spices never overwhelm and perfectly compensate for what would otherwise seem like a hollow center. As the tartness gives way to the continuously unfolding spicy richness, a phenolic burst cleanses the palate with a stiff dryness. Highly quaffable due to the sparkling clean attenuation and plethora of elegant subtleties. Wheat-derived twang prevails throughout, though a dainty pils malt toastiness breaks the monotony as it scratches at the tongue and beautifully contrasts with the slicker textures. Some starchiness creeps in as well to augment the body. Finishes potently spicy yet dry and clean as a whistle, with a hint of sugar cookie and lemongrass swirled with a flowery hop signature. Itís always difficult to find a witbier that excites. Most breweries attempting this style tend to cover up the uninspired base beer with excessive spices and foul yeastiness. But this has the huge spice component AND the base beer is rich with detail, nuances, and is cleanly attenuated. And at a very reasonable price of $4 a bomber (not a smashing deal by any means, but much fairer than the vast majority of bombers out there these days), Iíll be quaffing this by the boatload. A positively memorable rendition.

jcr (2380) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow body with a frothy white head. Heavy aroma of clove, coriander, orange peel. Notes of lemon, pepper and citrus. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture turning velvety, lively carbonation. Overly spiced with strong taste of coriander, grains of paradise, lavender, but not so much to taste bath soapy. This beer grows on you the more your drink.

weihenweizen (2371) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Refrigerated 22 oz brown bomber poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy golden with small white head which dissapates quickly. No lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and grains of paradise/lemon aroma. Taste is grains of paradise, coriander, lemon, some pepper, and finishes bitter orange peel. Better wit beers out there.

Excellent wit. Fresh tasting. A hint of tangerine. Smooth and very wheaty. Back palate is light and refreshing. World class for the style.

dfinney23 (2317) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours hazy yellow with a thinnish white head. Aroma is a nice balance of citrus, banana and spices but the taste loses much of the spice.
