3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just found notes on this one when my wife and I went to Albany.
The appearance was a soft golden hazy color with a decent transparency about it. The bar pour yielded a small white head with a thin ring coating the top of the glass.
The smell had some light orange and a little lemon.
The taste took those flavors and added a decent wheat kick to it.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and was pretty sessionable.
Overall, in my opinion, it went great with the bacon cheeseburger I had that day.

Pouring at BCTC. Pours a hazed gold with a small white head. Musky yeast on the nose, wheat. Gentle musk. More wheat, musk, and a faint touch of lemon. Soft musk on the finish. Very sessionable.

Another good one from the Pump Station! Great smell of wheat and bananas. Taste is similarly delicious. Pick one up at the brewery if you’re in town

Nice super hazy coloured blonde body with a white head. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed and bananas. Light-bodied; Nice nutmeg and wheat flavours with a still potent coriander seed taste. Perfect freshness that stays well in the palate - a great beer from a brewpub! I sampled this on draught at the Albany Pump Station in Albany, New York on 25 June 2006.

Yellow pour with tight white head and lace. Corrinader and ginger aroma. Tastes alot like it smells with a light bitter finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Very solid and refreshing.

Murky golden under a head that does not keep. Aroma finds banana esters, charred wood, a hint of sulfur, oregano... acutally a lot of herbs rising off the top. Chalky, spicy, herbal, banana... no problems in the mouth. Looking below at the duelling two-point-nines, I’d say some progress has been made in a year’s time. This is quite a nice Hefe, er... um... I mean Witbier. (Actually, it’s a little too hearty for a Wit.) Regardless, I like.

on tap-pours a white head with slightly hazy straw color and effervescence. Aroma is sweet, malt. Taste is wheat, musty, flatness from secondary hops. OK carbonation.

Palatable and drinkable witbier. Went down smooth with food, but I’ll defer to the experts for more precise analysis.
