2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head which leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus and spices. Taste is fruity and malty sweet with a mild citrusy bitterness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. A typical witbier with nothing special going on. Ok to drink around a campfire as it goes down pretty easy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 ounce can
Thanks to 5000 for sending this in a recent trade. Light, refreshing, and simple, it was a good beer for a cool autumnal evening. While I won’t go out of my way to get more beers from Fort George this isn’t a bad introduction.
Aroma / Appearance - The cloudy base is like pouring pureed orange pulp into a pint glass. The thin white head and spindly legs provide good visual balance. The nose smells like the inside of an orange creme filled Easter egg treat or orange marmalade. For the ABV it is surprisingly dense.
Flavor / Palate - The chewy mouthfeel starts from the first sip and doesn’t relent. Orange marmalade washes across the palate along with white toast. The sugary feel hangs in the back of the throat for a while before beginning to fade. This is a fine introduction to a new brewery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can courtesy of bvc. The pour is a very hazy orange yellow with a firm two inch egg white head. Head falls slowly and noisily with nice lace. The aroma is soft smooth wheat grain, along with clove, lemon grass and an herbal lemon-lime. The taste is the lemon up front, the grassiness of the lemon grass, and soft wheat grain and clove in the back. Nice integration of flavors. The palate is light to medium bodied, a touch under carbonated, with a pleasant un-filtered mouth feel and the clove lemon lime finish. Nice Wit, thanks Brandon.

Can. Pours a hazy golden orange color. Lemon, wheat, citrus aromas. Lemon, floral, citrus flavors. Interesting beer, but not typical wit.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy gold pour looks okay but the balance of flavors just doesn’t do it for me like a great Wit can. Too floral in a potpourri kind of way.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can from "Lifesource" Salem ,Oregon. $2.49
Pours a hazy golden in colour with a large thick and bubbly white head.
Aroma is strange..cross between Belgian style yeast and typical American Wheat..its OK though
Taste is mainly wheat like.., bubble gum, gooseberry, slight coriander,slightly tart,lemon rind..actually growing on me not too bad.
Nice palate they kept the carbonation under control, that works for me.
I actually started off disliking this..then i changed my mind a very nice summer quencher.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: Hazy straw, thick, moderate frothy white head, sparce lacing. Strong lemongrass nose, otherwise very soapy, amost like a urinal cake in its fragrance. Not the most pleasing aroma given it smells like a clean urinal. Wheaty on the tongue, spritzy, lemongrass, some corriander like flavors. Better on the tongue than on the nose, but still a little urinal like. Body and mouthfeel are moderate, wheaty. The aroma and flavor are almost too fragrant, soapy, and too close to a urinal cake. Otherwise clean, and yes somewhat enjoyable despite the aroma/flavor. Rather piss in a fresh smelling urinal than one thats nasty.   Really needs to tone down the soapy fragrance.

2 1/2 oz sample at the brewery. Pours hazy yellow with a dissipating white head. The aroma is citrusy, spicy, bready, corinder is strong. I like the lemongrass in it. Creamy mouthfeel. Good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a massive, foamy white head. Aroma is grainy, wheaty, banana and lemongrass. Flavor is sweet and lemony, with notable lemongrass and elderflower. The wheat really seems to lend this a smooth and sweet character, even more so than many other wit beers. I am liking it.

Fort George makes some great beer and this is a noble experiment. But the
flowery, soapy notes make this a tough one to go down. Belgian yeast could have been replaced with a hef strain for less floral assault.
