3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly hazy, pale gold appearance. Small white, fast fading head left little lacing. Yeasty aroma; lemon much more apparent as it warmed to cellar temperatures. Can’t dismiss the orange peel. Medium-to-light body with lots of carbonation. Tart, dry, citrusy, spicy taste. Dry, peppery, short lived finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy and bright yellow with a big loose white head. Zesty, yeasty citrus and corriander aroma. Light and carbonated with a pronounced bitterness that lingers on the tongue. I swear this is from the orange peel though others tell me that bitter orange adds no perceptable bitterness. It has a delicate lemon/orange and corriander flavor. Drier, sharper and more effervescent than many Witbiers. Better than most.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden, with an extremely frothy head the entire time. I was holding on to this for a while thinking it may have been the best beligian white my favorite style beer I have ever had with all the hype on the brewer, but it definitely wasn’t even close. Dominant flavors are coriander and orange peel the whole time, along with a slight lemony aftertaste and maybe a ever so slight hint of banana, other than that it leaves a very poor taste in your mouth that does not taste good at all, I don’t hate it but know I will never buy this again at $7, very dissapointing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Perfumy, lavender nose. Hazy pale orange color, fluffy head. Real citrusy, lemon and orange. Sweet in the middle. Puckering, lactic yeasty end. Light spice. Leaves sweet dollop on the lips like a fruit juice. Medium body, creamy texture. Unusual and interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, golden body with a medium sized white head that fades to a cover. Big juicy orange aroma with notes of spice, pineapple and musty notes. Refreshingly tart, orange, pineapple, corriander and cobwebs. Mouthfeel is light and lively. Dry finish. Not really true to style, but JP brews to their own style. The use of Brett, in my opinion, is much more interesting than the usual banana and clove of the Hoegaarden yeast. Also the spicing of this beer is just right, too many brewers over spicing their Wits. This was nice and refreshing. Another winner from JP.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml champagne style bottle. Crowned, but not corked. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a pale golden yellow color, with an effervescent meringue head. The head settled back to a thin lacing on top of the beer. Aromas are of coriander, citrus peel, mostly lemon. Includes a tart Granny Smith apple character as well. Flavors are of Granny Smith apples right off the bat. Some Brettanomyces is also present, probably from the barrel aging. Lively on the tongue, spritely. Thin body & mouthfeel. Crisp flavors fade quickly off the tongue. A decent Witbier from JP.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An unclear yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet spicy - with ginger being quite strong. The flavor is very carbonated with notes of spices - again strong notes of ginger, but also lesser notes of coriander, leading to a dry end. Less carbonation would do this beer good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy light dirty yellow, with white head. Citrus, grape, and light spice nose. The taste is a spicy light citrus. Grapefruit comes through as does the coriander. Very light, bubbly mouthfeel.
