3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Itís a style I usually do not usually appreciate, but this is a kick ass witbier. Pours hazy pale gold. Smells like smoked bacon and lemon vinagrette. Palate is light, fizzy and refreshing. The flavors are incredibly complex for this style. Spicy, bitter, and smoky. White pepper, zest, salt, smoke. Finishes dry and clean with a bitter zing. This beer has depth and complexity.

Pours pale yellow, quickly dissipating head. Citrucy aroma. Flavor is malts up fronts, orange peels at the back. Not much else to say...pretty good, but not outstanding.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
this pours a milky pale yellow color with a soft white head that leaves behind a small trail of lacing. enticing aroma... itís fun trying to figure out what everything is!... cardamon, canned OJ, bread and nutmeg burns the nostrils. very mimosa-esque flavor... tart lemon, OJ concentrate, nutmeg, coriander, peppery/spice, grassy hoppiness, ginger-like burn and dryness. dry crisp finish. spices linger in the aftertaste. full bodied. the carbonation takes it to a creamy level. this works quite well...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden, low head, minimal lacing. Great aroma of weed, cinnamon, and spice. Very drinkable. Flavor very tangy and citrusy, orange zest, light spice, wheat. Nicely balanced carbonation. No finish though, was disappointed at the tail end of this beer on the palate. Unique belgian wheat.

Pours pale yellow with light head. Very lemony aroma that overpowers everything else... bit of yeast. Flavor is very lemony. Different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2010 2.13.08 Pours light yellow, see-thru, with a medium sudsy white head. Smells very spicy, ginger, some cashews and a little bit of pepper. Very unique white ale. Lemon, orange zest, and somewhat grassy for a wit. Very tangy and citrusy. More like a soda than a beer. Very drinkable. Somewhat heavier body for the crisp carbonation, but I like that. Unique, solid, and somewhat different. Has definite mimosa like qualities and is growing on me. Extra point for the bottle. 188.8.131.52.16 . . . . . . . . . [rerate] 6.13.10. Pours a slightly orange straw color with fantastic fizzy frothy white head, near perfect for a belgian wit. Aroma is a bit appley, nutmeg, has a ginger-like smell, doesnít smell overly sweet . Flavor is fairly dry but allows the little bit of sharp apple sweetness to dominate, plenty of coriander in the flavor that becomes overwhelmed towards the finish by the nutmeg, take the nutmeg down a bit and Iíll love it more, the sweetness with the spicing leaves a very odd bitterness in the mouth. Medium bodied, fantastic fluffy fizzy carbonation, actually kind of crunchy. Solid but not near the allstar that I remember. Soapy. 184.108.40.206.13

In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a long lasting bright white head. Intense aroma of pears and pineapple. Fantastic coriander-like flavors. Peppery on the sides of the tongue. Remarkable smooth with a mild lemon finish. A really delicious beer.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy dark golden color with a thick white head. Aroma of wheat and light yeast. Crisp citrus notes with a good amount of spice and clove. What makes this beer stand out is the excellent palate and mouthfeel. I think this is one of the best Witbiers Iíve sampled.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Was kind of bored so I thought I would finally rate this, it is an amazing beer. The beer pours to the nth degree of haziness without being murky, orange colored. Itís got a medium sized head that quickly fades, despite that i officially decree this the best looking wit EVER! really never get to see something this dark and thick when it comes to Wiits. Aroma starts with strong sweet orange peel, original in the sweet part of the peel. There are lightly sweet spiky fruits, wild strawberries and some tea-like aspect (I am thinking is from a lot of coriander); great aroma. Taste is spritz-y Oranginia, seriously so much like the juice with light earthy herbs (thinking coriander again). It has a very light airy mouthfeel thats finished of by an aftertaste of well... how do I say... summer! So I did not know this till just now but its actually made with orange juice, thats what must give it that Oranginia feel.
