3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 40į. Color is a hazy golden yellow with mellow carbonation and a soft white head. Aroma is coriander, orange and Belgian yeast. It has a medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a nice sour note as the citrus and spice meld with the yeast giving it an almost White taste. In the after taste the coriander and spice hang on with a mild bitterness. Overall this is a great brew, I think it leans more to the characteristics of a White and the 8.3% abv is very nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale orange colored pour with a nice haze to it and a tall white head. Slight lemon zest aroma along with coriander, pepper, banana, and orange peel. Yeast and a somewhat nice dry malt profile, too. The flavor is heavy on the banana and citrus character. Somewhat dry, but a bit of malt and sugar sweetness. Coriander and pepper spiciness, light lemon, and a yeasty finish.

tap at Dash In on 2/2/13 - Pours a cloudy grapefruit color with an aroma of citrus and yeast spice. The flavor is sweet and citrus rich with yeast esters. Itís medium bodied and bubbly with the sweetness carrying through into the finish along with some lingering yeast spice. Itís a good brew though somewhat lacking in character.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold with a thin foamy white head. Estery nose with pale grains and peppercorn with a bready yeasty sweetness. Taste is also not as dry as I had hoped, but it has that quintessential Great Divide balance. Flavor is peppery and yeasty with a pale grain background, kinda slightly fruity. Lots of coriander too.

Pours a lightly cloudy pale straw yellow with one finger of thin fizzy head. Looks viscous. Nose is fine, grainy and vegetal with some banana and lots of raw fruit coming through. Raw Belgian yeast. Grainy and rough flavor, pear or cooked peach.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color, with a thin, off-white head. Mandarin oranges up front, cane sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and black pepper. Sticky sweetness, with a slightly sour undertone, with some musty notes. Medium body, with a hard feel and a little sticky and acidic feel. Overall, this is a sweet and tasty beer, but lacks complexity and depth.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Semi hazy yellow pour with decent white head. Nose of orange peel and coriander. flavor is orange pith, wheat, and slight spiciness. Bitterness, but a little sweet vanilla for balance. Not bad, but overly fruit orange bitterness, not so much flavor. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Double-Wit with a Tripel influence from appearance to the finish; hazy golden yellow body, light, soft spice, herbal with a light sweet malt base, mellow drink; Iíll go with a 16oz wheat beer glass for the rest of the sixer; could be a gateway beer for a bluemoon lover
