3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
good looking with a nice hazy nature. The nose is not as distinctive as I would like. It's a good beer but not as spicy as I like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw color, fairly clear for the style, medium white head, mild coriander nose. Very spicy, and the orange juice does come through. Refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold color- hazy. Small head. Aroma is orange, spice and yeast. A medium bodied wit beer. Yeasty and spicy. Coriander and orange. Light and refreshing. Citrusy and fizzy (but in a good way) Tasty beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold body but not as pale as many wits. The head is surprisingly small and short-lived. The aroma is coriander and a soft floral fruitiness that seems to be a blending of orange, plum and peaches. The flavor is more of the same. The spices linger on the palate. Surprisingly easy drinking.

Very, very spicy. Tastes very much of ginger, which is an odd, yet pleasant compliment to the white ale fruitiness. Very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very full aroma, the spices used being very apparent along with some light wheat malt and juicy orange. Hazy golden color with hints of amber and a very generous amount of suspended particles and sediment. Gives the impression of pulp in orange juice... Head is fizzy but diminishing. Flavor is very orangey and citrusy and again the spices show through amply. Some wheat malt and acidity are apparent on the finish but the citrusy orange and spiciness dominate almost every aspect of this beer from start to finish. I appreciate a good witbier but to be honest I thought this was semi-overkill. Man, that’s orangey.

Hmmmm....Nutmeg(?) is the first thing to hit my nose! An original idea for a Witbier, i guess. The orange peel is very evident in the finish. Typical color, typical dense head. I dn’t think I would buy this again.

Deep Golden color with a medium thick white head and lasting lace.
Slightly sweet lemony aroma with yeaty undertones. Sour lemony flavor, slightly flowery. Light bodied and smooth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found this to be sort of odd. Its super spiced up. To the point of obliterating my nose. There were all the expected aromas and flavors, it just was too strong.

Good clean beer. I thought it had more grapefruit flavor.
