2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is crisp, yeasty and wheaty with an undertone of lemon and a touch of sweetness. It pours a slightly hazy straw-yellow - not inspiring, but at least the snow-white head is fairly thick and fluffy and leaves decent lacing. Flavor is typically wheaty and yeasty with a faint lemon undertone, a teensy on the thin side but still potable. Texture is smooth, a bit watery, barely fizzy. I expected better from the appearance of the bottle, as well as the cost - I lost the slip so Iím not sure how much I spent, but it was not cheap. Donít think Iíll be looking for this one again, but Iím glad I gave it a fair shake.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty Cava-style bottle (not an aerosol or anything exotic). Hazy yellow/ orange with a large white head. Aroma of orange, lemon, coriander seeds, wheat. Quite sweet and slightly watery. Some tartness that seems to be from the aromatics rather than the wheat. The licorice is there at the end. Lacks that sour tang and a little depth, but itís refreshing enough.

Bottle. Pour hazy gold with a white head. Spicy coriander like aroma with some sweeter citric and wheaty notes. The flavor has grainy/lager like notes with some wheat and light spicy notes. Decent.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
This is a pale, unfiltered yellow witbier with no aroma to speak of and a light flavor. Thereís no particular taste to it, although the palate is okay, a mildly fizzy sort of thing. Good to have sampled it but disappointing, so thereíll be no repeat purchases.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light hazy yellow, lumpy off white foam. Aroma is spiced, cornmeal, some orange, coriander. Taste is more lemon, orange, citrus, light spice over top of a bland malt base, not worth the cash.

I truly thought when I did the review of this beer it was a lager and a very good one at that, but now that I see on multiple sites they claim itís a wit, marks go down fast. Looks like you typical commercial beer, slight haze golden body and thick soapy white cap. Looks awesome (the looks awesome part is based on thinking it was a lager) Aroma has apple metallic hops no sighs of skunk hints of yeast and mild spice. (once again I thought this was the worldís best lager not a crappy wit)beer Is thick and coats the throat. Taste is very similar to aroma also being crisp and easy drinking. Now that I know this is a wit I can taste some banana and spice but its faint, this has so much lager flavors in it, its almost as if itís a lager/wit blend but with more lager. I guess for the wit style this is horrid but just as a beer itís good and I did enjoy drinking it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super clear golden colour.
Focused malt aromas, getting some bread, sitrus flavours aswell. A hint of something tropical with a touch of banana to it.
Nice creamy foam, clear yeast tones followed by autolyse in a long aftertaste. The tropical flavours ar also present here, but mainly yeastflavours.
This dry witbier is made for food, with itīs clear yeast, sitrus and floral components. A really good mouthfeel, but it lacks some concentration.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2010 Seemed pretentious but was pleasantly surprised by this one. Appearance was yellow, white head, good lacing, cloudy gold. Moderate yeast, wheaty. Lightly sweet flavor, short duration. Light to medium body, dry texture, soft carb, metallic finish. Itís actually been awhile singe I made these notes, Iím going to have to pick up another bottle...forgot how much I enjoyed this one.
Well, picked up that "another" bottle. I must have reviewed this one after a number of others and been buzzed. Itís still good, but not near as good as I thought the first time. Dropped this one down to a more appropriate score after re-reviewing.
