3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark beige colour. Flowery aroma with slight coriander, orangey notes, and lots of spice & phenol. Fruity even. A lot going on in the aroma. Tastes fresh, fruity, orangey. Fun rendition of the style. Thanks to hey_kevin for sending this my way!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy blonde colour with a super-thin white head. Strong aroma of coriander seed, curacao and plentiful wheat. Medium-bodied; Assertive orangey curacao and a slight freshness from the coriander seed mark the taste. Overall, much better than expected! I had this bottle at the Winter Party at Oakes' place in Toronto, Canada on 05-December-2003. A large bunch of thanks goes out to Hey_kevin who sent this twelve ounce bottle out for us to sample at the party!

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy banana colored and a spicey nose with a medicinal oddness to it. Great clove spice, especially on the exhale. Good Amereican version of this style. Thanks to hey_kevin. (I had to share with aofoxxy because she saved the box from freezing on my doorstep, but its always better to share beer with friends.)

Smells of banana grapefruit slush, looks cloudy and decent head. Taste of hoppy citrus, very nice and crisp, dry finish. Hey kevin....I think I need another.

Very interesting. My first impression when this poured was ’Did they mean for it to be this color and clarity?’ An obviously unpasteurized gray Belgian Wit, I took one whiff and knew it was gonna be good. Real good. Spicy, very yeasty in all the right ways. Doesn’t have the heavy orange peel and coriander of some, but it delights in its differences. Great malty body. Great beer. Seek this one out. If John’s ships again, I’ll buy this by the boatload. Kevin, great call!
