Found another beer Iíve had several times and forgot to rate. So here goes. From a 12 oz bottle. Pours cloudy grayish-yellow with white head. The aroma is fairly herbal with notes of coriander, lemon balm, wild mint, sweet yeast bread, and grass. The flavor is slightly tart at first sip (very slightly), then fades quickly to a dull lemony sweetness. It has a bit of an herbal tea undertone to it. The finish is like chamomile, licorice, and orange with a little bit of crackery malt. Refreshing if nothing else.

quiznoaz (309) - Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2011
Draft from Ramshead Tavern (in Savage). Very light yellow, no head or aroma to speak of. Good light flavor, but very little to it; touch of malt and a hint of citrus. Would be great as a refreshing cold beer right after mowing the lawn.

maneliquor (3474) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2011
Massive seller at work. Figured Iíd try it. As far as wheat beers go (and me not being to fond of them), this one isnít too bad. Orange spices and cloves are prominent on the nose. Orange peel and spices in the taste. Very easy and sessionable

seymour (1684) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tasted bottle from Trader Joeís into nucleated tulip glass. Pours a very light straw color with yeast haze and tall white foam which immediately subsides, leaving no lace. Aromas of grass, faint citrus, clove and coriander but no late hops. Malt flavor is nonexistent, completely cancelled out by bittering hops and attenuative yeast. All thatís left is a neutral, highly carbonated wash. Light body. Soft, mellow, wheat bread aftertaste. It causes instant dry-mouth. People who say Belgian Witbier is refreshing must simply keep pouring íem back without taking a break. Slightly more sour and peppery as it warms, but fewer yeast phenols overall than I expected. This is an ale, right? Iíve tasted plenty of unfiltered lagers with more character than this. None of this is bad, per se. Hoegaarden is the original beloved Belgian Wit. And it IS very good; I guess this just proves I prefer some of the Americanized interpretations with more complex grainbills, more malty-sweetness, more color, more body, and more aggressive yeast profiles. Now I know; itís good to go back to the source on occasion. See how your own tastes have changed over time.

Such a cool beer, tingles the tongue but slips down effortlessly. Shame the bottle isnít any bigger!

On tap, into a Lager glass. Pour is a light yellow with a fine head. Taste is of co2 and malt. Finish is of co2 and grass. Very good white.

Nice and light with a hint of lemon. Very refreshing, excellent for a hot day in the park.
