Bottle: cabbage nose, clear and very pale. White pepper and coriander over cabbage, whoa, nasty aftertaste. Orangey and dry at the finish

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Keith-This beer has the lightest color you will see. Nice clear head and a light aroma. The flavor is very crisp and clear. Very refreshing but the taste goes away just seconds after you taste it. I like this one despite the bad side.

Spicey white pepper. Fish oil. Tastes like spoiled cabbage with a bunch of spices thrown in and then let to stew in a pot for a couple of hours. There’s quite a lot wrong here.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 I honestly thought that this beer was a joke of some sort until my life-long pal assured me that he’d spent $5.00 to buy it at the bar in Quenchers. I had the couple of slugs that RAYBOY01 had left in the bottle, then went to the restroom. This crap smells bad, tastes fruity-sick, and hits the gut like a hot coal.

A nice wit. Only one thing that confused me was that it really had almost a ginger ale taste. There was definite ginger going on. Not a bad thing, but it was a surprise.

Pale in color, extremely well carbonated, moderately hazed, good head formation. Sweet honey aroma, malty with a touch of sugar. Sweet, cleanish malt palate, sugary at first with an abruptly dry finish. Couldn’t get much spice.

Bottle, in the vaults of HI International. Really authentic wit. coriander, orange peel. Nice and tangy, lightly tart, full palate, refreshing. Nice one.

This is a wonderful smelling witbier. Cloudy yellow appearance with a large head. Flavor is orange peels, lemons, and grapefruit. It has a slightly spicy and sour aftertaste. This is a great witbier and it kicks Hoegaarden’s rear end!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very pale yellow out of the bottle with a fizzy yellow head and a coriander spice nose. Very carbonated on the palate. It had a real orange pop feel to it. Some spice and rotten orange peel. Very obvious beer.

Poured golden and clear with a light carbonation, kinda looks like Budweiser. This has a spicy aroma, definitely the coriander I’d say. The flavor hints more at the orange at first, then the nutmeg pounds through, and finally at the finish is a definite orange cracker character.
