3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden hazy body with a thin white head. Wheat lemon, light coriander and some moderate clove and cinnamon spice maybe a sharper carbonation than most wheat beers. Not bad, nice for the style.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Clear yellow color, very light head and lacing. The nose of light clean spice, some citrus and vanilla, a bit of coriander and wheat, more wheat though than the spice. The flavor doesn’t bring anything extra to the party. A decent body with a thin tail, nothing really too redeeming.

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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Very pale clear yellow with a short lived white head. Aroma is sweet like ginger ale and just a little spice. Flavour is pretty much sp on for a shandy, and nothing like a true Belgian wit; it is not wheaty, it is not yeasty, it is not dry, and it is barely spicy. This sucks.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Murray’s in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. Pour a semi-cloudy pale off-white brew with an average sized white head that quickly dissolves to a white ring. Aroma of citrus fruits, corlander, a touch of multi-grain malt and some spice. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonataion, with semi-sweet citrus zest, wheat malt, corlander and some mild hops. Finish has a distinct lemon zest and fruit flavor with a mild bitteness. As of today, this is one of the best American made Wits I’ve tried.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark and cloudy gold that is a little bit orange. The aroma is lemon bread and bananas. I am having trouble pulling out corriander in the aroma. The taste is light orange peel and a little bit of flowery goodness. There is also a little bit of banana and corriander in the finish. The corriander spice gets stronger as you drink more. A nice rendition of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The recipe seems to have changed slightly since its original moniker - ’Immigrant Ale’. A good wit. The new version seems to have more coriander bite. Would like to let this one sit to see how it mellows, but it never seems to last that long.
