3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a dull yellow, not as pale as I would have expected, somewhat cloudy, large white foamy head, with fairly attractive lacing.   Citrusy nose, corriander, and some spices.   Somewhat dull spicy/citrusy character on the tongue.   Not as sharp or crisp as I would have thought.   It is very clean however.   Wheaty mouthfeel, decent body albeit not as flavorful as others.   Finishes with very soft citrus and very light corriander.   Needs to be spiced more, otherwise decent.   Thanks goes out to CaptainCougar for the trade!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iíll start by saying Iíve always had a place in my heart for a good wit. Lightly hazed golden, fizzy white head. Nice soft nose of orange zest, corriander, pepper, lemon, and wheat. Similar flavors, was very well balanced, with a light hop bitterness rounding this out. Medium bodied, zesty carbonation, drying orangey, wheaty finish. Nice stuff. Special thanks to llgrgg for bringing this back from MI....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention and weeping lace. The nose is of grilled, unhusked corn, unmalted grain and white pepper. The flavor is perfectly balanced, but very non-descript. Light-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

Large white head, large bubbled with a short life span and minimal laceing. Hazy straw blond color with a soft white glow. Spicey, herbaly nose, lightly citrusy, oranges and a hint of ripe pears. Light body, gentle carbonation. Clean citrus flavors, coriander, yeasty, mildly acidic, bready malts, faint vanilla notes and mabe some light woody notes in the background. Finish is almost dry, lightly fruity. Thanks to JCW for a shot at this fine brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Fall Beerfest In Toronto 2004. Hazy yellow in colour. Aroma was quite spicy, lots of citrus (oranges and lemons), and coriander. The flavour was very spicy with pepper, citrusy (oranges again), light yeastyness. Large mouthfeel, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes with a mild bitterness, dry.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Thanks to wohlfs for this! Cloudy gold. Small dense white head. Aroma is coriander, lime, pepper, other spices, and light yeast. Light banana notes as well. Taste is spice and light citrus with wheat, yeast, light honey notes, grains and light wood. Body is medium but still refreshing. Somewhat rich at times as well. Ends dry. Finish is light spice and wheat, fruit esters, hints of sourdough, light hay or grass, and more light wood. Nice wit, probably the best wit Iíve ever had!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 Mildly hazy, rich banana-colored body with a tight sudsy white head. Herbal coriander-lime aroma plus some pepper spice, orange, fruity esters, hay, and light notes of clove and barnyard. Wild, funky elements in the flavor. Tastes like limes, candied orange peels and honey. Comes across as sweet to me with a lot of pale malt and honey character, but I think itís actually deceptively dry. A touch too phenolic perhaps. Considerable body with nice fullness for a wit-like beer. A very solid, complex and creative spinoff of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big Thanks to BBB63 for this brew! Pours a hazy golden color. Nice white bubbly head. Aroma is is full of oranges, corriander, other spices, and wheat, with a little "barnyard" in there as well. Flavor is very nice, lots of spices and a little fruity/acidic/dry finish. Just slightly sour, possibly from the fruits/yeast or aging. Very nice and easy to drink!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Behemoth thanks to BBB63 and footbalm for this. Itís a damn good thing they both sent a bottle, because Iíll either drink the other one tomorrow or ransom it for a new Playstation2. Poured into a Hennepin glass, turbid deep urine yellow color with an off-white head and hop floaties. Aroma of malt, Brett, barnyard, hops and citrus. Tastes citrusy, with a solid malt and hop presence, some Brett, and yeast. Very smooth, with citrus and fruit at the finish. Just fabulous. Very complex and well balanced, and the complexity increases as it warms. As I finished it, I came damn close to uncapping the other bottle, but Iíll save that for a special occasion. If you rated this below a 4.0 or so, then you just donít get it! (with all due respect).

750: A light, not hazy, golden. Actually, the lack of haziness was somewhat of a put off. Fairly wheaty, but the lack of haziness in appearness carried over to a lack of "haziness" in the flavor, that Iíve come to associate with wits. Overall, however, well crafted, just not the pinacle of wits.
