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 olí 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.

Didnít gush nearly as much as I feared it might, so huge points there. Very refreshingly tart, fascinating yeast character. Decent malt body underneath that balances the carbonation. Sharp citrusy notes in the finish which are very pleasing. Probably the only Witbier Iíve ever had that could actually be described as remotely interesting.

Bottled. Pours hazy deep golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, brett, yeast, wheat and spice. Sweet flavor that ends up dry, tart and a little bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and average carb. A very nice Wit.

Gush pour opening
gives my glass nothing but piles of foam. Patience & a cautious repour is in order. Pour redux brings a beautiful sunshine topped wiith a whipped meringue cap. This is a beautiful brew that shakes up expectations: slight spicing, citrus shards, & measured sourness make for a balanced drinking experience. Balance is the key here: nothing pushy, just a great drinking beer. Great brew to sip on as Germany prepares to crush Brazil at World Cup (Iím sure the recent spat of hate mail my reviews are generating will make me eat my words if my prediction here is incorrect).

As Hangunder said "Nice tart/funky/barnyard notes mixed with belgian yeast. A gusher when it was opened. Hazy yellow with long lasting foamy white head." I should have chilled it a long time and opened it near a Duvel tulip! Attractive tart pale fruit and some herbal hops. Orval brett hides in the minglings of gentler flavors that are still full. Ah yeah, MANURE critters lurking in he aromas, how very biological.

This pours a cloudy orange yellow with a 1 finger head of foam that shrinks quickly. Lacing, yep.
Coriander, clove, banana, some bubblegum...pretty smelly, err aromatic. Hey is that some Brett in there?
It tastes like someone squeezed a fresh orange into my glass of this beer and then threw a blanket in it. A horse type blanket. The coriander and clove are there but that orange and Brett flavour is killing it. In a good way. I could drink a couple back to back.
The body seems to be medium at times but mostly light. Plenty of carbo.
A nice tasty Wit, for sure.

Nice tart/funky/barnyard notes mixed with belgian yeast. A gusher when it was opened. Hazy yellow with long lasting foamy white head. Funk at the beggining, finishing with some sour and belgian yeast notes. Not overly complex but a nice funky/spicy balance here. Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Pretty darn good, will pick up some more even given the steep price.

Draft at stags head. A great summer brew in my opinion. Pours light cloudy gold. Nose is lemony citrus and wheat. Tastes of orange peel, lemons, wheat, vanilla, and spicy coriander and white pepper. Zesty palate a d drying finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy white head that lasts. The aroma and flavor have wheat malts, orange peel, citrus, lightly tart, moderate Jolly Pumpkin funk, mild plus spices, very nice drinker that has more character than most Belgian whites.
