3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy golden yellow/light amber with a large diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of coriander, orange, lemon, herbs, grass, nutmeg, banana and clove. Medium watery body with lively carbonation. Flavor of coriander, wheat, orange, lemon, grass, herbs, clove, and banana. Slightly musty/yeasty with a little tart lemon twang in the finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. Another decent one from Lakefront.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clouded orangey amber, good head formation. Strong lemon, honey, orange, tea aroma, indicatively sweet. Sweet syrupy palate, thick orange flavor, clove prominant, grainy towards the end. Little in the finish or aftertaste. It’s a white but not very well balanced, not a scratch on Hoegaarden’s subtleness and complexity.

Not really much of a strong nose presence, which I like in my Wits. Tame overall. Not really much in the spice way in the flavor either. Eh.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 IMore yellow than many wits. Not much aroma, some fruit and spice. Flavor is simple with coriander and orange, dominated by a sweet taste. Finish is also sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Hazed pale yellow hue with fading fizzy head and little lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and floral hops, biscuit, banana, lemon, coriander and chalky yeast esters. The taste starst citric with orange and lemon overtones. This beer ends with a touch of bitters, yeast and a balanced spice character. The feel is lively and crisp, thin-bodied. A good witbier, very quaffable, among the better American made versions.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught sample at the Milwaukee Ale House. Lightly hazy pale amber, massively lasting head. Spicy banana-vanilla-coriander-clove in the nose, great smooth/spicy palate, could have more fruit depth and malt but quite tasty nonetheless.

Good carbination beer, keeps it fresh and alive. Nice with a slice of orange in the glass. Better or comparable to any other white beer I have had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is foggy and golden, with a small bit of head to compliment it. Nose has a little spice to it and yeast. Flavor is smooth and leaves with a little bit of spiced flavor on the mouth. Nothing spectacular, but pretty quality stuff.
