3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden and lightly coloured copper body with a thinnish white head and no cloudy or haziness at all. Aroma of coriander seed, light oranges, some spices and a bit of malt/wheat noticeable - not much else though. Light-bodied; Strong curacao and orange flavours at the front end with a bit of grass and dry malt and a touch of sweetness on the finish. Aftertaste shows some dry grass and herbs with a little sweetness and a lot of coriander seed and curacao throughout. Overall, a nice and refreshing beer with some good white characteristics, but about average for the style - however, to get this in Montana regularly, not a bad beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by my coworker on 27-October-2015 from Great Falls, Montana, sampled at home in Washington after a few hours after returning from Great Falls on 23-June-2016 - Thanks Randy!

Straw color with a smallish diminishing white head. Lemon grass, dry weeds and hints of pale malt and dried orange zest. Mild citrus, including key lime dominate the flavors. Lightly tart. Slightly refreshing. A light lager/ale with some wit qualities. 4/10

Pours a hazy murky straw from a bottle. Nothing much going on, flat and thin. Not very good.

The aroma is more wheat than fruit. The first sIP is wheat and then the fruitiness and coriander come on fairly strong. Decent overall but too much wheat for my taste

No lasting head and no lacing. The flavours are of wheat and citrus and coriander and the spices expected.The flavours aren’t as strong as the Euro’s might be but that’s ok because it balances.

Not my favourite style but a clean and crisp brew with a fresh and floral profile. A beautiful pour of light hay and a puffy, dense white head. Floral and slightly perfumy hop and ester blend. A good session brew with citrus, coriander and wheat flavours.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a snifter glass
Appearance – The beer is served a very hazy orange amber color with a tiny white head of pure white. The head fades very fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of yeast and wheat with a good showing of spices of coriander and clove as well. Along with these aromas comes some notes of a light lemon and orange citrus as well as some bready smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a drier wheat bread taste mixed with a moderate showing of some citrus of orange. There is a bit of yeastiness as well as some flavors of spice upfront, with coriander and clove being the strongest of the spice. The yeast and spice grow slightly stronger in nature as the taste advances, but never become overly strong. A little more orange sweetness comes to the tongue as the taste advances to the end, with a bit more spice and some slightly sour lemon coming as well. With all the changes that occurred throughout the taste, one is left with a nice drier citrus and moderately yeasty and spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side for a brew of only 4.75 % with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly higher. The thicker body does well for the yeast and spice, really accentuating these all while the higher carbonation excites the tongue and is very nice for accentuating the sweet citrus. Overall, the feel is very appropriate.
Overall – A rather nice wit overall that packs a nice flavor into a minimal abv. of 4.75 %. Very well done!!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Nothing notched on the Best Before part of the label. Clear golden color. Little ring of white head. Some loose ropes of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Belgian wit type yeast flavor, mild spice, good bright orange citrus. Nice zesty taste, moderate sweet, kind of tangy. Light bitterness. Pretty tasty, enjoyable, easy-drinking witbier.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Many Glacier Lodge in MT. Right off the bat, bananas and clove oil in the aroma, as well as heavy malts. I could have been at the dentist, so much clove. Poured a hazy yellow, with a big, rocky, and very clean, bright white head. Swallows with a medium, creamy body, an average carbonation and a long, doughy character on the finish.
I did have this on tap, but brought a bottle home, so I may revisit this rating at a later date.
