Erzengel (1931) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Rating from 2010: My beer had 7%. Witbier-typisches Kräuteraroma. Witbier-trockener Antrunk, zum Hauptteil leicht süßlich-süffig, leichte Kräuter. Vollmundig, mild, aber zu süß. Der Nachgeschmack ist süß-witbierig, koriander, süffig, aber viel zu überlagert-süß.
--> 2% weniger, und dafür kein Zucker hätten dem Bier viel besser getan!
--> enttäuschend süß. 7/11/8/7

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 22, 2013
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden lemon color with a big white head that lasts leaving light rocky lacing. Aroma of cloves, lemon grass, coriander and faint wheat. The taste has a strong orange and lemon zest thats not too bitter, but highly spiced, and a sweet zing that dries off a bit towards the finish. Medium to light body with lively carbonation.

Spice, citrus and a little must funk com off the nose. The color is a light cloudy yellow with moderate white head. As far as the flavor there is some light citrusy sweetness but followed by some nice herbal bitterness that finishes dry. The beer is very light and fizzy. This is head and shoulders above most wits on the market but comes across almost like a saison either way a must try beer.
