Basically snagged a bottle of this to show my fiancee the cute owl bottle and bottle cap. Pretty good stuff, though - a little weak for the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served at the Bullfrog brewery. Creamy yoke with foam white ring. Light yeast and wheat with slight lemon zest. An herb medley which has an odd flavor yet calm and mellow on the pallet. It lost me towards the end, kind of fizzled out and went flat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy golden, thin white head with a small amount of retention and some lacing. Aromas of honey, sweet tree fruit, and spices, though perhaps slightly medicinal but not overly; flavor of honey with some cloves. Pleasant light mouthfeel, light carbo. Very nice indeed.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin to medium white head. Spicy lemongrass, and almost curry, with big coriander notes. On the thinner side of medium, spicy and a little minty almost. Very spicy on the gums. Finishes with some nice wheat notes, and a light hint of ginger. :

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle: pint glass: Wow. A very unexpected, suprising Belgian White. Pours a very light caramel color, clear, leaving a thin white head. The nose is citrus, yeasts, no clove or banana. The taste is also citrus, balanced with some nice bitters. I tasted PICKLES!!! Some strange sour/sweet mix, but it was very enjoyable. Medium to high carbonation, very well balanced, very drinkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle at a Vietnamese restaurant in Los Gatos. Having this beer with some spicy pho really highlighted its strength; its bangin’ with food. Hazy light yellow with a thick white head. Spicy ginger and lemon aroma. The flavor has dry and refreshing wheat with a tangy and acidic lemon bite, all domineered by spices and ginger. Light and effervescent. Quite spicy, with ginger dominating the spectrum. A very unique and awesome take on the style. Lots going on while remaining ridiculously drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared a bottle with friends at Sunswick tonight. This beer was quite different from other Belgian whites I’ve had. Appearance akin to other wits. Flavor had heavy notes of ginger and licorice. An interesting interpretation of the Belgian tradition. Definitely worth a try.
