4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Chalice.
Appearance: Very cloudy orange with bubbly white head and lacing.
Aroma: Strong banana and bubblegum, with light clove, coriander and wheat. Some alcohol.
Taste: Sweet upfront with a dominant banana and bubblegum flavor. Dries up and turns spicy and hoppy at the end, with pepper, clove, coriander and a nice bitter bite. Despite everything happening at the finish, the banana still lingers.
Palate: Moderately high carbonation, medium body, very dry finish. A little bit warming.
Overall: Very nice complex and refreshing... something. Not a typical Belgian at all, as it resembles a Hefeweizen more than the claimed base Witbier. Regardless, it is delicious, and perfect when a stronger Summer seasonal is desired.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Steve’s Liquor and More in Madison, WI. Pours a cloudy amber-orange colored body with a finger-width, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is fairly spicy and floral with some grainy wheat and bubble gum Belgian yeast. A good amount of coriander, citrus, grass, some pepper, and apricots. Flavor is better. A bit more malt forward, but still maintains a good amount of yeasty spice and hop bitterness. Wheat up front with a bunch of florals and coriander. Citrus peels, apricot, bubble gum, Belgian yeast, pepper, and grass. Finishes dry with a somewhat warming spiciness and a medium-light bitterness. Crisp wheat helps this dry as well with a nice mix of spices and hops. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty tasty Belgian ale. Crisp wheats, coriander, and Belgian yeast spices along with a pleasant hopping. Hides the alcohol well and drinks nicely. Not bad.

Pours hazy golden-orange with white head. Aroma with citrus, coriander, belgian yeast, and wheat. Maybe some faint piney hops in the background. Similar flavors. Kinda like a more hoppy belgian wit. I really enjoy this one.
