4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a luminescent yellow with significant wheat haze and pillowy-white head. Prominent notes of orange peel, clove, banana, and coriander explode out of the glass. Taste is amazingly balanced and refreshing. I wish that I had this beer every summer day. One of the easiest-drinking beers I have ever had.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft w/ bockyhorsey and wife at 4P. Pour was cloudy golden-white, the whiteness one of my favorite parts of a nice witbier. The head was solid, as was the lacing. The aroma was dead on, coriander and spices (cinammon?), bananas, breadiness. The flavor was full bodied and hearty bananas, bread (banana-bread) with citrus supporting it all and a nice finish of coriander and cloves (like a Belgian-ed up hefeweizen). This was along the lines of Hoegaarden, a great production within style, a style that I enjoy. I may have even liked it better, especially because of the hearty and full mouthfeel, non-cloying finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewery. Pours a hazy orange with thin white head. Aromas of citrus and spice, yet very light in the nose. Flavor is highly acidic with notes of coriander, orange and lemon, and a hint of cinnamon. Fizzy as hell and not quite right on the palate. I like the fizziness but the bubble size or something is off. Refreshing but a touch thin and bland. I will drink more of this though as I was rushed to finish this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2008 tap @ the north pub...pours a cloudy instant lemonade color that seems almost fake. aroma is a lemon sandwich on yeasty wheat bread in a wet burlap bag...earthy flavor with lemon and wet wood. it has a salty character that makes it unusual. cold, crisp and light bodied...perfect desert drinkin’...6/4/6/3/14/3.2
picking up a cinnamon spice note in the aroma. flavors... low tartness (although it’s still there), musty grainy wheat, minerals and spice on the finish. lots of lingering coriander and banana. medium body with a rich creamy texture and a mouth feel full of soft luscious carbonation. it’s very hearty in the mouth but at the same time greatly drinkable...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Four Peaks Tempe: Pours to a cloudy, almost opaque, blonde-colored yellow with a medium, lasting white head. The aroma is faint yeast, corriander, orange rind, along with hints of light bread. Taste is crisp corriander and orange, bread, lightly sweet pale grains, wheat, with plenty of yeast still left around to add to the flavor. At times a dish soap flavor comes though just a bit though it never hits levels where it bothers me. Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated, it drinks like a lighter beer but it definitely has plenty of body without being heavy - remains crisp throughout may be a better way to say that. Finishes with some wheat and spice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong wheaty nose gets amended by gentle orange peel and coriander aromatic spices. The pour is a light cloudy golden, the head long-lasting, pure white and mountainous. Crisp carbonation cleanses the spiciness and ensures great drinkability. Weizen-like banana and close undertones almost make this an hybrid. A flawless wit that manages to produce more flavors than most thanks to an efficient yeast work enhancing the spiciness and relifting the wheat.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hope I’m not only the second one to rate this beer. Nice light bold color of a wheatfield, with a nice bountiful head of course. Delightful aroma of cloves and oranges. Flavor steals the show, a mouthwatering transition from tangy fruit flavors to dry rich grainy character. The ending is is quenching and satisfying. Aftertaste just wants yearns to want more. Not suprisenly this taste alot like the belgium wit that was made at BJs in chandler. But of course the brewer is now at four peaks.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
New on tap in Tempe. Banana, vanilla aroma stands out for this beer. Body color looks like cream style corn and small white head. Lacing blankets the glass. Flavor has a friut mixture of pear and banana. Somewhat of a dry banana aftertaste on the palate. I would recommend this one.
