3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2016 330. Pours a deeply cloudy bright orange leaning to light gold. Fizzy white head rises briefly to visibility and then settles to the faintest of rumors at the edges. Huge blast of oranges and coriander on the nose, really a shot across the bow of people who think wits are stupid little training wheels beers. This one has a lot of ammo up front. Fizzy medium body with big fat tangy orange business happening, the hop oil and the citric acid really combine to give it some bite. Dark spices and a little bit of white-peppery hop near the finish. Nice wit.

Aroma is refreshing and light with hints of ginger. Minimal head and pale in color. Light body with moderate to heavy carbonation. Very refreshing. Stands out as very enjoyable.

I tried to not be prejudiced against a belgian white brewed in japan, but his one had some good and bad things. Color and aroma were great, but the taste really set it back. really bitter for a belgian white, i was hoping and expecting for some nice spice and crisp clean flavor, but this was way too bitter, quite frankely, i was surprised that this rated so highly, not that its bad, but not what i expected.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Poured with a small, white head that diminished to a thin froth on the beer. Body is a nice, dark-yellow color, and very cloudy.
S: Wow, thereís a lot going on in here. Lots of spices, especially coriander, coming through, as well as lemon, lime, and pepper.
T: Equally as much going on in the taste... not quite like any other wit Iíve had before. Slightly milder taste than the smell, but still lots of coriander, orange, and pepper, but nicely balanced overall.
M: Light-bodied, but creamy, with lively carbonation.
D: Fairly easy to drink, but all of those spices may make it hard to have more than a couple. Still, a very interesting wit that should be tried by any fan of the class.

Bottle. Blurry gold with a short white head. Aroma is that of strong ginger, slightly fermented fruit, citrus (lemon mainly), spices, and yeast notes. Wheat is prevalent as well. Taste is is sweet malts, citrus, yeast , wheat notes, ginger and light spices. Some light, under-carbonated flavor of Sprite/7up as well. Flowery too. Body is light and bubbly with a strong carbonation feel. Ends with more flowers, sweet malts, spices, ginger, wheat, yeast notes and light candyish flavors.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Hamiltons. Pours a cloudy light yellow hue with a thin layer of white head and lacing. Nose is big ginger, orange/citrus, nutmeg and vanilla. Flavor is ginger and oranges on a wheat base, tones of nutmeg, vanilla, lemon lime linger, finishes fruity sweet. Medium body, creamy texture, high carbonation. Very light and refreshing white ale full of flavor, very easy-drinking and refreshing even if it tastes like lime Gatorade.
