2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a smallish head. Nose is rather sweet from the yeast, but you can get some hints of spices underneath. Taste is slightly sweet, but the spices come through a lot more. Not too bad for the style.

Representing the RIC! I think this is the first time I’ve seen Legend outside of the Richmond Metro Area, and that is a good thing, as I’ve been a fan of their beers since way back in my days in Richmond. I’m sure I’ve had many, many of their beers well before my RB days, and Legend brown will always be my hometown micro, so nostalgia may cause my Legend scores to be a bit high (not intensionally). Anyway, that was a long winded way of saying don’t discount my rating for this one. I thought this one was a great example of the style. It hit on all of the components, that I was looking for, and I couldn’t find any real issues with it. An excellent, on-style Wit.

Earlier Rating: 6/5/2004 Total Score: 3.2
Pours a clouded blond with a medium white head. Aroma is spiced with some banana and yeast. Taste is more spice and fruit and is a bit sweeter than expected. Sort of a grainy taste to it as well. The spice seems to stand out a bit too much towards the finish. Carbonated mouthfeel. Not too bad a beer, and very drinkable.
