4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bought this on a whim because the Issaquah Brewery is down the street. Surprisingly good. Belgian style white ale in flavor, with nice almost Christmas ale-type spices complimenting the malt perfectly. Quite light, and clocks in as a session in the low 5% range. Recommended; solid B+.

Draught at Mckay’s Taphouse, Bellingham
Cloudy blond color, small head. There is a light what aroma and flavor, some malt flavor too, light malt crispness, light cookies, light spiciness (elegant one); correct bitterness.
Among white beers, a quite good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Rogue Ales Public House, San Francisco. Rated on 17.10.2012.
Pours a cloudy, murky, dirty yellow colour. Actually looks like Koduolu or peach juice. No head at all. Aroma is really intense with Christmassy spices and pumpkin pie. Flavour of sweet malts, strong cinnamon and nutmeg, grass and some light bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a spicy sweet finish. A really spicy witbier which makes this rather interesting.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours hazy blond with a small white head. Smell is light fluffy coriander, clove, and a faint hint of citrus. Taste is somewhat spicy, leathery mouthfeel, sticky. Not my favorite Wit.

I’m not a huge fan of Belgian beers but this one was mild enough on the cloves I didn’t mind it. Light golden color and a nice citrus finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at Rogue SF, 5/12/11
Aroma: This one has a nose made up of wheat and spice components
Appearance: The pour is a cloudy yellow color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is spice and wheat, like the nose, with a little bit of citrus too
Palate: The body is fairly medium, with a decent mouthfeel and texture to it
Overall, this is a solid Belgian white with a decent spice presence and a solid body. Not a bad offering at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Cloudy, yellow-orange-light brown appearance with a white head. Ginger, coriander, orange peel, spicy, yeasty, wheat malty nose. Interesting flavor: cinnamon, ginger, coriander, orange peel, other spices, Belgian yeasty flavor. Slightly spicy aftertaste. Certainly an interesting idea adding cinnamon to a witbier. Pretty good.

Mild aroma. Cloudy appearance with small white head. Full mouthfeel. Coriander is the main taste but it isn’t overpowering. Full of wheat and orange and malty notes. Good witbier!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The subtle hints of ginger, wheat, flowers, make the aroma of this beer one of a kind. Also apparent in the taste, i would define this beer as a spiced witbier, compared to new belgium’s mothership wit. Of the two, I like this one BETTER
