4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lemony gold color with a nice rocky white head. Spicy, wheaty, citrus aroma. Grassy flavor is light, spritzy and slightly tart. Very easy to drink. Clean and well carbonated.

(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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours unclear golden and a frothy white head. Full aroma of yeast, orange and citrus with a slight tone of alcohol (!). Wheat and yeast flavor with lots of fruit in there as well. White pepper notes. Flat mouthfeel. Rather unbalanced, but interesting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Pours an unclear, pale golden with a rather tall, white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus and coriander. Rather light-bodied with plenty of fresh fruit, but quite a different fruit profile than in your typical Belgian Wit. Perhaps a wee accent of coconut? Very fresh, would be the perfect summer quencher. 270106

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a massive head, lovely citrus aroma. Fairly thin mouthfeel, VERY sour citrus flavor. I usually like Whites, but this one is far too sour for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(750ml Bottle) This beer is light and sharply acidic, which makes for one dry and complex brew. Freshly ground coriander emanates from the beers thick foam. Citric acid both in the lemon and orange variety make this concoction electric. Dry as a bone, that pretty much sums up the finish. This beer is pretty damn good, kind of like a cross between a wit and a lambic.
