Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2006
750 ml bottle: Pours a clear golden yellow hue. Small sticky white head is mostly lasting. Sweet orange nose, grain, faint spice. Steady carbonation, grainy, bread, spice, bland citrus. Sweet, overly sweet after a while. Not too impressed. Turd Fergusen is a bastard.

from a 750ml. hazy golden in color with a big white head. citrus dominates aroma with some spice wheat and a little yeast. balanced sweet and tart citrus flavor. very very carbonated. very fizzy and refreshing but the carbonation might be a bit too much. very light body. one of the better wheat beers i have had.

lamas (1435) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 17, 2006
750mL bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thick and fizzy off-white head that lingers. Tart, wheaty and citrusy aroma. Lots of lemons in there. Coriander and oranges are apparent as it warms. Crisp and thin with a high level of carbonation that gets quite distracting. A VERY tart beer. Wheaty and yeasty with plenty of lemons and oranges thoughout. A hint of coriander. Crisp, clean finish. This was so tart that my girlfriend thought it was infected. I can only assume that it’s not.

From a bottle shared by Chuck. Yellow body with intense carbonation suspending a fluffy white head. Sulphury aroma - pear skin, sulphur, a patch of soured malt. The sulphur that I couldn’t get away from in the aroma disappears once you sip. It’s replaced by lactic grapefruit rind and lightly toasted saltine. Some coriander and floral elements. I like the brett addition to this wit.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2006
750ml Bottle thanks to Styles: Pours to a beautiful bright and pale yellow, mostly opaque even with held to the light, with an enormous frothy white head that lasts throughout the entire glass. Very miniscule bubbles can be seen gently rising to the surface. A touch of mild lemongrass and wheat rise to meet the nose, followed by citrus, coriander, fresh orange rind (almost unripened), a hint of pepper, musty hay-filled sack, light nutmeg, spices, and gentle wood. The flavors unfold with a brief lemongrass, followed immediately by a slightly tart wheat and light citrus that is very refreshing to the palate. The orange rind comes through towards the middle, and definitely more after a few successive sips, there may even be a slight hint of grapefruit rind here too. The spicy yeast, coriander, and hints of pepper come out towards the end, but are quickly replaced by a quick retronasal hop note, then moderately dry wheat, and dusty hay at the finish. Medium bodied, excellent natural carbonation, tiny, well-integrated bubbles tingle and create a filling but not heavy feeling. It does seem to be just a bit on the tart side, and maybe a bit hoppy, with more oak (dry white wine-like barrel?) than I’m used to tasting, but it is well-integrated into the whole beer. Very nice.

(750 ml bottle: Obtained in trade with Eyedrinkale, thanks Mike!) Big, frothy, white head takes quite some time to settle out, thanks in part to the army of carbonation bubbles that rise at break-neck speed to the surface. But as it does settle, a thick, foamy curtain of lace coats the entire glass and shows exceptional longevity. Lots of coriander and citrus in the nose. Wheat, yeast, mild lemony citrus, coriander, gently bitter orange peel, all present and all wonderfully balanced. Not really all that tart to me, but it’s not even mildly sweet. Body is light-medium and carbonation is lively but not expansive. With the spices, citrus and carbonation, this beer is very refreshing on the palate. Bright golden yellow, only somewhat cloudy until the final pour when a significant amount of sediment finally flows into my glass. Heading, retention and lacing remain visually stunning for the entire session, and I’ve dragged this session out for nearly three hours (so the beer is certainly at room temperature). A well-made witbier, certainly one of the more balanced American-made witbiers I’ve sampled. Nice job.
