Poured light orange/white in color. Smelled sweet and spicy. However, the flavor was light and spritzy and had flavors of lemon and orange rind. Very refreshing and not to much clove spice present which worked well for this beer. An all around solid beer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Buttery golden color. Hazy. Big 2 finger bright white head that stuck around a while. Acidic, sour, citrus and floral notes. This actually smelled very much like a suntan lotion I used when I was a kid....can’t remember the name maybe coppertone...weird. Thin fizzy body. Not my favorite witbier

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Blue Smoke, 27th street, NYC. I know this one isn’t highly rated but I consider it one of the best wits out there. It is assertive as it shoots off citrus, banana, coriander, orange peel and spices. Perhaps it is too flavorful? It is also pretty silky versus other wits I’ve sampled. The aroma is one of the best elements as everything I tasted seems accentuated times three. Some element seems to balance everything out. Its too bad the bottles only has 11 ounces each.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
First - I like the packaging. Crisp and refreshing. The color is a hazy yellow. The aroma is spicy with subtle hints of citrus. The flavor is at first somewhat sour and acidic. In the aftertaste the corriander and orange comes to the fore. The palate is a little rough around the edges and it doesn’t seem to all come together.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden hue with a small white head that leaves minimal lacing. Taste is very citrusy and slightly tart with notes of coriander and orange juice. Very thin mouthfeel and slightly metalic. Different but very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy light gold with a slight thin white head. The nose is citrusy lemon all the way. Orange and coriander sneak out through the wheaty acidity. This is a bit thin and fizzy on the tongue, but not more so than most witbiers. The flavors are in line with the nose, big lemony to orange citrus, some spicy coriander and some peppery hops. This isn’t half bad for the style with it’s dry finish and peppery aftertaste. Addition of some of the yeastier bits made this a bit hazy and softened the lemon white making the beer wheatier.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazed lemonade color w/ a medium sized, semi spritzy froth. Very aromatic w/ spicey perfume and lemon rind. Light to medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. The prominant feature is the very abundant corriander spice. This is probably the strongest spiced white beer I’ve ever had. Very enjoyable though. Other nunces of lemon rind, piney oak sap, perfume, and rose petals. The finsh is bittered crisp and refreshing. Highly recommended.
