4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2005 Absolutely delicious. This stuff is the best white ale in the U.S. -- dethroning another Michigan favorite, Celis. Brilliant luminescent gold with a tinge of ol’ redheadhead ... a strawberry blonde. Sour and zippy aroma tinged with some citrus and yeast. Delectable sweet finish which with some hoppiness. A very pronounced sense of freshness. This is a spring beer, no doubt about it, celebrating zymurgic life. Grand.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2015 A hazy golden pour without much foam. The aroma is spicy, citrusy, with some slight lacto funk. Some sea buckthorn and anonymous berries. Some orange zest, too. The mouthfeel is silky, punctuated by needly but agreeable carbonation. The taste leans tart, with residual fruity sweetness. Flavors of berries, cola, and a hint of brown sugar smooth out the acidity and are finished off by some mild, mineraly astringency for a dry finish. Deliciously fruity, mildly herbal (coriander) aftertaste. Refreshing. Not sure this is what a Witbier should scrictly speaking taste like -- but in the summer that discussion would be purely academic.

Crazy interesting aroma with lots of the spice standing out and firm funkiness, think barnyard and maybe a hint of lacto. Drinks really nice and is super dry with a quenching tartness. I enjoyed the spice in this beer more than most in this style category. Good beer especially for those who like sour but not over the top sour.

Damn Great wit. Hazy light golden color with big fluffy head. Aroma of wheat clove fennel and more. Taste of the same with some grapefruit and sour wine. The cloves continue throughout to balance the mild tartness. Light grains stick around to the dry finish.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a super active clear golden colour, head is white and won’t stop pouring out of the bottle, reminds me of Orval. Head dies down to a thin layer, leaving some clumpy lacing behind. Nose is fruity, distinctly Belgian like. Tastes, sweet, a bit tart. Really tasty.

Shared bottle in Atlanta.
A very funky witbier, although I’d classify this as a sour white ale.
Moderately tart and rather lemony.
Some vinegar in the somewhat medicinal aroma.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow, headless. Complex aroma of sour melons, funk, orange creamsicle, wheat, oak, and a faint Brett - like yeasty smell with hints of leather and rubber. Very light and spritzy body, with a creamy wheat texture. Sour and tart, fruity, earthy, funky, with fresh melon flavors, more Bretty notes, and a surprisingly clean, tart, dry finish. Outstanding.
