2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I preface all my witbier ratings this comment, so this beer shouldn’t be any different: this is not my favorite style. In fact, it’s one of my least favorite. But I had to try it. I’ve been surprised by wits in the past, and this was included in my draft sampler. This wit was actually pretty decent. It poured a cloudy straw color with yeast, fruit and wheat in the nose. The body was very smooth and drinkable, and featured plenty of yeasty and fruity notes. I’m not sure I would order a full pint of one of these, but I managed to finish the sample.

Tap. Pours lightly hazy gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is clove, coriander and banana with wheat and straw malt. Flavor is malt and spices, light hops and bitterness with citrus notes and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out a cloudy straw color with a small white head. Aroma is of light spices, grain, citrus zest. Taste is clean and refreshing, nice spice levels with a dose of citrus zest, orange peel, grains and a clean finish. Nicely done and its nice to see a brewery can make a wit that isn’t’ a donkey punch of coriander.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub after getting my watch sized. Poured a bright gold/porange body that was slightly cloudy with a foamy white head. Aroma was great, notes of bubble gum, fruit, lots of fruity esters, spice, corriander and orange slices. Lighter bodied with soft carbonation and an average duration on the finish. Flavor is similar to the aroma but slightly softer, notes of wet wheat, rotting banana, lots of fruity yeast esters, light spices. This was a very nice beer.
