3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Hazy, pale yellow body under a very fizzy. loose yellowish white head. The aroma is priamrily citrus, but the coriander is quite evident, perhaps more so than any other Belgian Wit that Iíve had. Very lively effervescence and a light body contribute to a clean mouthfeel. Orange blossom honey sweetness, some mild acidity,wheat based sourness, and just enough spicey bitterness round out a refreshing flavor. Easily drinkable, thirst quenching, although the spice is a tad overdone, I think.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours to a murky flat/pale yellow body with a really fluffy meringue looking white head. The aroma is perfect to style. Spicy coriander and orange peel are pronounced. The flavor is refreshing. Spicy coriander is balanced well by bitter orange peel, green maraschino cherries, and mandarin oranges with a velvety wit yeastiness. The palate is velvety, nicely textured, tart, and mouth watering. This is a stupendous wit beer. I could drink this one all summer long.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale straw and cloudy liquid. White big bubbles that look that that from a soda, but are lasting longer. Somewhat watery in feel. Light pale malt and sweet wheat flavors abound with a rather sweet citric component. Some light coriander flavors wander about in the middle. Just a light lemon zest bite in the finish and linger. Quenching. Just seems a touch to sweet and light.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with a white head, somewhat cloudy. Emmitís a yeasty, biscuity aroma, with a spiced flare. Flavor is completely smooth, classic Belgian style wit beer. Delicious flavors that comes across smooth. Another good beer from our friends in Colorado.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours pale golden with a short white head that stayed pretty well. Aromas of yeast, lots of corriander, and a little citrus blended with some crisp grains. Flavor is very yeasty with a good amount of corriander spicey notes and some orange peel/lemon there as well. Crisp clean and well carbonated this one was pretty refreshing. And a pretty good offering from this brewer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Great funky yeast aroma, tons of coriander and nutmeg, some cereal. Hazy, sickly pale yellow (but rather bright) with a tiny lacing white head. Dry wheaten taste, tons of coriander (havenít had this much since a good tarwe), nutmeg, orange peel. Full body and a very dry aftertaste. Even during the main course, one of the dryer wits brewed stateside. Non-hop bitterness really draws out the desire. Though quite different (it might challenge for a Spice/Herb/Vegetable categorization), easily around Hoegaardenís level. A good one!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a hazy yellow-golden color. Head was fluffy, white, and left some clingy lace on the glass. Smelled of lemon, orange, malty cereal grain, light coriander, and flower blossoms. Effervescent and somewhat sweet. Plenty of coriander flavor accompanied by citrus fruits, honey, and yeasty bread dough. Good wit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A new summer seasonal - I checked to see that the ABV is different than the Spanish Peaks Summer White, and it is, slightly.
Normal wit pour, lots of sediment, bright golden in color. Loads of coriander in the nose and flavor, sharp, biting - a good bit of citrus too. Kind of thick (surprisingly)! A good beer, should be quenching this summer.
