3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (Courtesy of BBB63 - thanks): Golden coloured. Light hazy. Fluffy off white head. Fruit, spices and yeast in the nose. Quite subtle aromas. Fruits, sweetness and light grassy notes in the flavour. Is somehow grapish and light sour. Has a spicy touch. Is grapish and light sour in the end. Quite refreshing. Listening to the beer is like standing on the waterfront on a calm evening with the waves silently splashing on the brink. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle-pours nice hazy neon yellow with a small fizzy white head with a nice level of fuzzy carbonation. big orange peal aroma with some of that oak/beachwood coming through. complex spicy flavors with corriander, oak, lemons, hay, but really doesnt taste like any other wit i have ever had. the oak comes through more as it warms, creating a very woodsy note. very complex for such a low abv beer. I will have to rerate this one with a full bottle (i only got one sample).

Pours a hazy pale golden color with an almost Duvel sized white head that fades agonizingly slow. There’s a thick rocky cap left that leaves as well as tons of lacing after the head fades. Impressive.
Smell; slightly sweet to start, with some lemon and orange zest. There’s a bit of a peppery spiciness with some vanilla, and just a hint of hay.
Taste; initiialy the citric flavors really stand out with the lemon and orange. After a few sips a bit of vanilla and a woody presence show up, with a nice drying spiciness in the finish. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp, with plenty of carbonation. This is one refreshing beer that is very easy to drink.

Bottle, from Julio’s. Sharp yeasty. Lemon, corriander, I thought I was getting a corn thing, maybe it was the yeast. I don’t know. Clean yellowy gold color, nice head and lacing. Soft tart flavor, like aroma. Lemon in the forefront, spice too. Medium body, lite crisp mouthfeel, bitter lemony mouthfeel. Kind of nice, easy to drink, I’m just not a witbier kind of beer drinker.

Big thanks to TAR for this one! Very hazy medium yellow, great soft, pillowy head. Aroma was coriander spice and lemon. Flavor was very lemony, with balancing, not bitter coriander. Finish was a big surprise, very, very tart. I’d almost think something a bit bacterial was going on here. Very enjoyable, and the sour finish was a refreshing and unique take on the style.

Cloudy yellow pour with attractive white, foamy head. Spicy aroma and flavor with hints of wheat. Notes of coriander, clove, nutmeg and cinamon. A bit of banana is hidden below the spice. Thin body and crisp finish.

Light yellow with champagne like bubbles. Yeasty, earthy aroma is also slightly fruity. The body is good, but thin. Mostly apple throughout. Just OK.

750 ml bottle. Sparkling golden yellow on the pour with a large, long lasting head. Scents of citrus and wheat on the nose. Refreshing tart citrus flavors with banana and spice in the back. Ending with a dry finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2007 Tangerine Coloring with White Head. Wheaty and Yeasty Notes on the Nose....Bit of the Same on the Tongue...Along With a Overripe Banana Flavor...Coriander Tastes Past its Prime as Well. Overall a bit Stale.
Rerated 4-9-07: Light Hazed Yellow. Light Ctirus Aroma. Coriander and Citrus Notes..Sweet Malt Flavor..Dry Bittering Aftertaste. Almost a Vegetable Bitter Feel to It. Certainly an Interesting Take on a White, but Perhaps a ’Love it or Hate it’ Take.
