2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this on draft at Pizza Paradiso in DC over on Dupont Circle.
Ap: Cloudy, almost peppery orange, with very little head, just a few bubble swirls on top.
Ar: Very unusual. Smells of pears, orange, coriander, sweet tarts, and pepper.
T: Even more unusual! VERY peppery, with tons of orange. The pepper cuts into the citrus and the two don’t go very well together in this setting. Perhaps it’s because the carbonation is almost non-existent? Also, I could use more tartness overall. It tastes like diluted orange juice concentrate.
P: Like I said, not much carbonation, which I think would have benefited this one.
O: I wouldn’t get this again. There are too many great Witbiers out there.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours whitish with almost no head. Aroma is of fruits, spices. Taste is of fruits (citrus), spices, soya milk. Palate: Light body. Overall: Not too bad. I that fear without the orange peel touch, this one would be below average.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is sour-ish, hinting at a different witbier that you are used to. There is also some nice wheat notes in there. Taste is lightly tart and showcases wheat and spices quite elegantly. Quite a bit fruity also. Light bodied and quaffable plenty. Really refreshing. Nice!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Taste is good, light wheat that is soon overpowered by tart citrus flavors that linger on into the finish. Finish has lots of spice pepper, coriander mingle and spice up the citrus. Nice dry woody finish with hints of vanilla and touches of vinegar.
