Release #10 bottle from the brewery. 5.1% alc/vol. Wow, thatís a good and oddly powerful witbier. Tons of wheat, citrus and yeast. This is not a bland interpretation of the style. Tasty.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2014
On tap at the Denver brewery. Pour is hazy golden with a small white head and good lacing. White pepper, basil, lavender, light vanilla, biscuit, herbal, grass, and straw in the aroma. Taste is heavy spice - lavender, basil, white pepper - lemons, grass, biscuit, vanilla, and phenols with a spicy finish. Light body with high carboantion. Decent beer but a bit too heavy on the lavender to be a great wit for me.

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.

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.

weihenweizen (3131) - 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.

Gription79 (2827) - 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.
