2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Colour...hazy golden straw with a thin white head. Nose...faint hints of butyl esters and sweet spices. Palate...frothy and fairly zesty, with notes of coriander and sweet spice, muddled with some citrus. The finish is short and somewhat spicy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Fort George, pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of elderflower, as well as coriander and floral notes. Flavour is soft on the palate, again with notes of elderflowers and coriander, very floral as well. Very solid Belgian wit that drinks easily.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Lemongrass and elderflower...you can tel this beer goes beyond the traditional coriander and orange, but never would have guessed the flower. Light and refreshing, yet flavorful, with a very fruity, floral, almost perfumey aroma.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can to glass. Hazy straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is citrus, peppercorn, tangerine, straw, Belgian esters. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a peppercorn spicy following and slight estery finish. Overall this was another good beer from Ft George.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can picked up a little while back at Bier Thirty... Just found it tonight... I have also spotted this one at Brewer’s Haven and a couple other places.
Poured into my FunkFest goblet... surprisingly short lived white head atop a hazed golden brew.. no lacing, no retention.
Nose shows wheat malt that sorta pummels the orange zest, but a resilient coriander keeps Wit character in the game.
Flavor is pretty good... the zest and spice come out okay.. perhaps a bit sweet and malty on the finish... seems a bit muddy and yeasty.
Meh... Nothing wrong.. Could be dialed in a bit more IMO.
