3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap at GBD (Golden Brown Delicious) in DC. Poured a pretty vibrant yellow-orange color with a nice medium sized white head. Aroma was some light malts, light spice notes with plenty of black pepper in there. Wheat character, black pepper dominates a bit. Dryness from the honey is apparent. A good friend of mine is convinced that this will pair well with their chicken and waffles, and I don’t doubt him.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Fullsteam, Durham. Faintly cloudy deep golden pour, medium carbonation. Aroma was fairly pleasant, somewhat sharp from the yeast and pepper barely detectable. Body is lightly prickly but mostly just smooth and at times full. Flavors were moderately standard wit but there was enough going on from the additions to make this one moderately more interesting than the norm, especially in the peppery finish.

Tap at the brewery. SUPER cloudy yeast bomb yellow. Nose is corainder, black peppercorn, orange peel, honey. Flavor is quite peppery, some honey cereal malts, light citrus sweetness. Good, but the peppercorn is a bit overpowering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
America Eats, DC tap (expensive as all hell): Pours a light orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is light clove, light malt, and a bit of sugar. This is pretty much a dignified lawn mower beer. Everything is good, but it is so light that it could not be offensive to even the most inexperienced palate. Again, it is not bad, but it is kind of a run of the mill American Belgian Wit.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours golden with a small head. Not a bad wit. Hints of sweetness to it, but not overpoweringly so. Easy drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy bright golden with a funky looking head--clumps a little bit. Nose is honey and pepper and earth. Taste adds lots of black pepper in a pleasant way. Dry finish. Big improvement on the R & D batch, I think. I’d drink more of this, for sure.
