4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On-tap at the brewpub: Cloudy straw yellow with a pale glow about it, medium white foamy head is adorning the top and holds for a good long while before fading to a slim coating of whipped foam and bubbles. Lacing is minimal with some light strings.
Aroma is all about the fresh wheat tang with this one. Snappy, fresh, and whole-hearted. Seemingly near the aroma of wheat crackers and pretzeled bread.
Taste brings lots of fresh wheaty tang to the table. Substantial flavors of wheat crackers, dry bread, and pretzel-like saltyness. Has a very distinct dryness to its character thats really nice and finishes with favorable herbs and spices dusted in with bread crusts. Comes across more like a really super nice Czech Pilsner then a Wit as there is very little to nothing of lemon, orange, or corriander thats usually associated with the style. But that didn’t bother me one bit as it is fairly strong in its wheaty tangyness, almost bringing its own fruityness within. Quite an interesting approach and is good none-the-less.
Feel is about medium with a nice wheat tang to its overall body, drys out moderately while holding its own delicate carbonation.
A very nice beer here. Perhaps a bit off-style, but I’m putting that aside as it suits me just fine. Drinkable by leaps and bounds compared to alot of past GW brews that were always coming up short in the smell, taste, and body department. A sign of things to come as the new brewer is well on his way to keeping up with the taste trends of the brew enthused. Looking forward to more.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a lightly hazy, deep peach color, though much lighter and brighter when held up to the light. Half an inch of nearly white, bubbly foam only lasts a short while, changing to a thin film and a ring for the duration. Decent spotty lacing. A little bready, a very little bit spicy in the aroma.
On the tart and dry side, though not hoppy at all. Bready malt, biscuit malt, and tart wheat flavors up front with very tasty and bitter orange peel - especially in the finish. A hint of spice in the end. Very thirst quenching. Almost medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter orange peel aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/23/07: Pours a cloudy pale golden with a wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of pale lightly biscuity Belgian malt with a nice lemon citrus and clove character. Body starts fairly full and lightly biscuity and wheaty sweet balanced with complex lemon and coriander toward a crisp, smooth finish. A very nice witbier.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours very light cloudy staw yellow. Aroma is very light with some wheat flavor but no Belgian yeast smell. Taste is a buttery very tart lemon wheat flavor. Not sure if it was infected or not bit it was tough to finish. A lot heavier mouthfeel then I was expecting for a wit.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft @ Brewpub: Hazy yellow, nice head and lacing. Nose of explosive coriander and funky wheat, grass and fruit. The flavor is too sour with wheat and orange peel. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from tap at the brewpub. Pours unfiltered yellow with a white head. Aroma is spiced, wheat and a bit of bubblegum. Flavour is strong bubblegum flavour, not that wheaty, but has a soft mouthfeel. Soft and light sweet finish. Too much bubblegum for my taste.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy yellow color with a medium head. Very pungent aroma of corriander, lavender and wheat. As much as it smelled nice, the taste mixture was not kosher. The corriander overloaded the wheat to a bad degree. Too bitter and lacking in the needed wheat character. Good try, but no.
