4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Wasn’t expecting much on this beer. But, man, oh man was a I blown away! This is easily in my top favorite 10 beers.
First, the aroma hits you smack dab in the nose with the 70s - lots of fresh hops - maybe simcoe? The taste is smooth and ends with a slight ashy 70s taste. Not much bitterness. Very drink able.
Maybe this is a special batch... I have only had one. But, it ranks up there with my favorite beer that has a similar taste: Abbey des Rocs Grand Cru.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clouded straw gold that has a nice white head that falls quickly. Nose is citrus and a bit of lemongrass as well. The scents are there, but not powerful or overly strong. Gives a rather smooth and calm fragrance. Flavor is thick with wheat and has a few good dashes of light citrus flavors. Not overly strong or complex though. Feel is nice and smooth on the liquid with small bubbles of carbonation hitting the tongue. Overall very drinkable. A smooth and calm witbier that is definitely worth trying. Nice job Ithaca!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Of all the brews in the sampler pack I wish that it was just full of this. A hazy yellow with a perky white head in the gl;ass. Nose is light and has whisps of citrus and grass. A creamy medium body is quickly overtakedn, for the light hop finish. After the first went down via glass the other two didn’t stand a chance and were equally enjoyable direct from the bottle. Consumed during framing of the wood shed. This style is growng on me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale coloured golden body with a very thin white head. Aroma of fresh hops, a nice maltiness and a very fresh taste of spruce! Medium-bodied; Strong showing of malt, hops and a very stong taste of spruce and mint. Aftertaste shows some of the wheat and a bit of the spruce - not much of anything else. Overall, a very crazy beer that has more of a holiday flavour than anything else. Damn good beer, and very complex, crazy for a summer beer! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 22-October-2006.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This white ale smells delicious - sweet and funky at the same time. The appearance is perfect for a wit...hazy, cloudy yellow. There is a subtle bitter flavor that lasts throughout the palate. I feel it is not balanced enough with sweetness and spices to enhance the zesty bitterness, but still a good brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is very very spicy Belgian (golden) aroma. Lemon accent on top; really very spicy for style.
The appearance is golden yellow. Nice head retention. Lots of carbonation.
The flavor is sweet and spicy combined. That fizzy, Belgian spice with a flowery finish. Standard flavors, done well.
Feels fizzy and oily. Has a little bite on the swallow. Spicy and sweet. Very pleasant. Really hits the spot. A solid, spicy witbier.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one surprised me. Awesome beer for its style! Light on the palate and very carbonated. Taste is of citrus and lemon with some spicy notes that are very appreciated. Balances very well and the finish lingers. Tons of good flavors... I feel like this was very well done. Just wayy to expensive for a 6pack ($11) but i was pleasantly surprised with this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Six pack from Julios. Pours out a hazy medium-light orange color. Light white head that goes to lacing. Aroma is very pleasing. Lemon, spice and bready wheat. Flavor is light and refreshing, but plenty enjoyable. Not too sweet or too bitter. Mild bread-wheat character. Well balanced. A very under-rated refreshing summer beer, IMO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, effervescent yellowish-brown color; enormous off-white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Pleasant amounts of coriander and oranges and spice in the aroma. Medium, creamy mouthfeel: relaxed carbonation; an estery and banana core at the front, providing a very warm, full presence in the mouth - yet at the center is a sharp, citrus and tropical fruit clarity; slightly overspiced?, but I really enjoy coriander in my beers. Medium, citrusy and coriander finish; slightly dry.
