Hazy yellow with a decent head. Not a lot of flavor. A bit of citrus, yeast, nothing very special.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the LI Beer Festival. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a foamy white head. Funky unpleasant aroma. I’m not sure even how to describe it. Some coriander in the flavor as well as some light lemon. Watery finish. Blah.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught at the Blue Dog in Lansdale. Lightly hazy, dull lemon-colored body with a tight, frothy white head. Aroma is very buttery with a savory, meaty aspect. Flavor is of slick popcorn butter and very sweet bananas. Medium bitter finish with a phenolic quality. I’ve never encountered a witbier with a noticeable diacetyl load until now. The effect is not good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the Malvern Brew Fest. They were calling this Midnight White, but confirmed that it was the old recipe. I found this one to be an excellent wit, and I think it is very underrated here. The pour was goldish whitish and turbid, with white head. The aroma smacks you in the face with heavy citrus, spices, and some yeasty banana and cloves. The palate is lively and solidly carbonated, with flavor hints of lemon, orangezest, coriander, cloves, banana, Bazooka gum, and hops. I can’t wait for this one to be bottled.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap/Standard. Floral airwick lemon aroma. Notes of blue toilet cleaner. Bologna; urinal bologna all the way. Work hard to finish it.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2006 I put Legacy up to the Celis White challenge having both witbiers side by side at the Grey Lodge Pub. Legacy’s aroma had a twang of rotten egg, however the medium body beer had a foamy head and good lacing. Light lemony flavor that lacked the yeast spice I enjoy in a Belgian White. Overall Celis was a better witbier but don’t take my word, try a Legacy White Ale yourself.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1.13.05 At Canal St pub. Same yeast strain as Hoegaarden? Do tell! Not as good as the H-to the-Izzoe (it’s a little thin) but a decent wit for a middle of No-Man’s-Land, PA.

A fine wit. I enjoyed this a lot. A solid wit that I wish I could have again. Maybe next time i am in East Bumblefuck, PA.
