2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with a white head. Nose has some light citrus, wheat, and just a hint of spice. Watery taste, citrus and spice barely come through. More or less no finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle from variety pack. Pours hazy golden with soda like carbonation and white head. Aroma of sweet malt and some spices. Taste is orange, brewing sugar and spices. Medium, tangy body. I would call this brew Bud of Belgium wits.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) A bight hazy yellow complexion. Lemon and citrus qualities in aroma and taste. Easy to drink and good for a session on a hot day. I would say more American in style then Belgian, but not a detractor. Long Trail makes a nice price point for flavor.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Lemon, brown sugar and soapy aromas. Yellow-brown cloudy body with a quickly settling head. Heavy visible brown remnants on the top of the bottle. Initial banana, citrus, cinnamon notes that finishes crisply. This beer is on the light side of the body, but it works ok with this style.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Easy to drink, easy to love. Creamy mouthfeel and light citrus taste; some light spices upfront. I enjoy the lingering mellow coriander aftertaste. Perfect for this summer weather. Nothing like a palate-crushing IPA or impy, this should be enjoyable by just about anybody.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 120z bottle into a Witbier glass. The bottle has a best before date printed on it and the label lists the abv at 4.7%. The neck label has a brief description of the beer as well.
Appearance: The body has a hazy yellow color with an average two finger tall head of light soapy white lacing. This head quickly fades and makes very little in the way of lacing on the glass.
Smell: It has a heave nose of citrus orange and lemon peel with much lighter wheat malt underneath. Hop notes are very light and only add to the citrusy character.
Taste/Palate: On the palate it has a light slick texture with light carbonation. Its medium body has all the same flavor notes as noted in the aroma. It is big on citrusy notes. Mostly from the addition of bitter orange peel and a little bit from the hops. The hops add very little in the way of bitterness and only serve to bring some dryness to the still somewhat sweet finish.
Notes: Overall this seems like a good average Witbier.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Susquehanna Bank Center. Poured hazy golden with fizzy white head. Flavor of lemony zest, citrus fruits, and heavy on the coriander. Not special, but refreshing at least.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A friend left this at my house and I was the lucky one. Haven’t been a huge Long Trail fan in the past, but I dig this one. Warm, golden tone, cloudy. Wheaty, dry, sweet with a nice citrus aroma. Delicious and clean without being overwhelming. Went great with sushi dinner. I recommend it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Gas Oil Restaurant in Portsmouth, NH. Cloudy pale orange color, little head or lacing. Aroma and flavor were light citrus notes in a wheaty base. A slight tart zing finished this off. There were very little spicey notes in this one as it probably could have passed for an American Wheat. Ok.
