3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great wit by one of my favorite brewers. Pour was a cloudy white with a nice 2 finger white head. Aroma of orange. Taste was lightly carbonated (my only quip with the beer) nice and dry. Spices and coriander float about and citrus comes out in the aftertaste. If this was a little more carbonated it could have been a 4 (or close)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow this hit the spot on a 90-plus degree day here. Classic albino yellow body with a thick white head. Honeyed wheat, graham cracker, light caramel, rose petal and bitter orange make up the well balanced nose. The body is creamy and smooth, with a more defined malt profile that includes notes of wildflower honey, toffee, doughy bread, perfumey hops and some bittering citrus. I am really getting turned onto this style lately - but I guess the weather will do that to you. A great beer.

Bottle. Tons of citrus and corriander aroma. Fruity taste, finishes dry, a decent palate. Good lacing and head retention. Not a bad wit beer, I like it because it is not overly fruity, taste is not so lingering like a hoegaarden.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Florian’s. Opaque straw yellow body with a half inch of off-white head. Body looks kind of like milk was mixed in, which is a bit odd, even for the style. Smells spicy, citrusy, and yeasty. Tastes orangey, lemony, and spicy. On the lighter side of medium-bodied. Not the best example of the style, but a decent drinkable beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle-pours a foamy white head and cloudy straw color. Aroma is mild-musty wheat, coriander, fruit. Taste is mild/thin, mild-musty wheat, coriander, fruit-apricot/banana, yeast. Kind of lacking but easy drinking. OK/mild carbonation.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Although a good witbier, the finishing flavors (coriander and bitter orange peel) come too early. It is a good refresher though. I just think that the bottom drops out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy straw colored pour. Banana and coriander aroma with a little bit of pepper. Medium carbonation, slightly creamy body. Wheat, yeast, some lemon and spice dominate the flavor. Easy drinking and flavorful. Really light body even for a wit but it’s tart finish makes up for it. This is a good all-around wit, I liked it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a modest clear for a Wit, expected a little more haze to it. Decent head and lacing. Aromas of banana, clove, and a little citrus to round it out. The bottom of the glass was filled with little chunks, possibly yeast, with a few other unattractive floaters. Expecting more color and smell however for an unfiltered Wit. The taste is ok, a little watered down flavor, seems as if this is a typical American Style Wheat. Nice clean flavor, no real hop backbone to it. Expected much more

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good looking Wit pour, cloudy straw body with tiny bits of yeast floating about. The head, sadly, lasts none too long. The aroma has soft wheat, coriander, and a citric tartness. The spices kick up quite a bit (too much?) in the flavor, challenging one to taste the malts. Still, it’s a fairly refreshing, warm weather brew.
