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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A less traditional wheat beer with the orange peel and coriander. Not as intense at the In-Heat Wheat beer offered by Flying Dog. A more mainstream flavor that is easy to drink and get used to. A full body with a nice aroma present. Not as hoppy as it could be, but none the less a good beer.

This reminds me a lot of the Dogwood Summer witbier with it’s good wheatiness, slight yeasty tartness and solid spicing. I really enjoyed this beer and that’s rare for me to truly love a beer by flying dog.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow, minimal head. Nose is what you’d expect from a wit, some lemon, slight orange, with some hops and good malt backbone. Taste reflects the nose, with a nice lingering finish. Not quite up there with the Sweetwater Hummer, but a good rep of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Musty wheat malt and lemon aroma. Hazy pale yellow color with small head and moderate effervescense. Mild acidity initially followed by a mild sweet lemon flavor and ending with a musty dryness. Very nice witbier.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy gold with a tad of yellow green. Bubbles rise fiercely into a huge white, cottony head that is snap, popping and cracking like a bowl of rice crispies. My first noisy beer! Smells lightly of coriander, faint spice, cedar and lime. Taste is wet, slightly tart from the citrus, then thick with sweet malt. After is alcohol, along with a cheap cotton ball/peroxide dry finish in the back of the throat. Toss some bandaids in there for good measure, and that’s your palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very pale straw, somewhat cloudy with a thick, flat white head that subsides to virtually nothing and leaves no lace on the galss. The aroma is quite thick with luscious wheat and coriander. The taste begins malty and wheaty - mostly sweet - with subtle hints of citrus and coriander. The bitterness of the orange peel begins to grow as the beer makes it way toward the back of the throat. The middle of the flavor tastes bittersweet with an orange zest zing. The beer finishes dry, spicy, and bittersweet from sweet malty wheat and a nice combination of subtle grassy hops and citrus rind. The mouthfeel is medium in body, creamy, and well carbonated w/out being over-carbonated. Overall, a very decent witbier.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrusy wheat aroma, with good hints of corriander. Pours a cloudy yellow. Dry but refreshing, a healthy dose of corriander, orange and lemon citrus flavor. This is a pretty good wit.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Hazy canary pour with floaties and white head. Aroma of heavy clovey spices, orange zest, hopcitrus, and white pepper. The aroma is great. Tastes is citric, with a lot of orange zest, some hops, spicy clove, and more white pepper. Smooth, complex, and well balanced, this one is an excellent wit, and I’m glad to have a sixer in the DLBF.
