3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale golden pour with a thick sticky white head. The nose is very lemony and citrusy and almost heads into soapy territory. Herbal and lightly fruity with a bit of soft toasty contribution as well. As it warms up it takes on a nice bright fruity nose and a bit of fresh wheaty maltiness as well. Juicy fruit with a kiss of herbal character on the back. Pretty unique wit beer actually. I’m not sure if I really like it, but I could see how someone else might.

Bottle from hophead75. Thanks Andrew. A very interesting Belgian Wit beer, I have to give long trail credit. Heavy floral, lemon, soapy, banana, coriander characteristics abound. medium sweetness, lots of soap. Refreshing, but I don’t think I could drink more than one glass of this at a time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks hophead75 for bonusing this a while back. Pours a bright lemon yellow with a mild haze and a thin fizzy white head. Nose is very interesting, lemon zest, sweet spice, very mild isoamyl acetate and wheat, very pungent citrus character with a mid floral aspect. Flavor is very unique as well, floral and lemony, mild wheat and banana, mild sweetness. Palate is very light in body and most of the mouthfeel comes from the lively carbonation. I really enjoyed this one but understand how it could be aversive.

Pours a golden orange, very exhuberant white head with nice lacing. Aroma is strong lemon, orange, coriander and various spices. Taste is initially bitter with a sweet finish. High carbonation has the beer dancing on your tongue and enhances the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a light golden color reminiscent of apple juice. There is a small disappearing white head and no lacing. Aroma is orange peel, peach, pineapple, jolly-rancher and yeast. Taste is slightly bitter but very well balanced overall. citrus notes and other fruits compliment yeast presence. Finishes soft but very pleasant. A fairly simple but happy and satisfying beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very cloudy yellow-orange with a huge yellow-white head that lingered. The aroma was very strong and distinct coriander and lemon. The best coriander note I have ever found in a wit. The flavor was strong orange and coriander with undertones of must, lemon, pepper and yeastiness. Medium length finish. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.
