22oz capped bottle, thanks Tom. Cloudy hay yellow with tight creamy lookin white head. Really medicinal citrus cleaner like nose. Bright citrus, soapy cleaner, lavender, orange peal, coriander. Really good and the only knock is that it is a bit soapy; but I really like this.

Sweet light malt, lemon, and flower aroma. Cloudy golden color with a small white head. Sweet sweet coriander. This beer has the most coriander I have ever had. Sweet beginning with a light citrus bitter finish. Sticky palate.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the 22 ouncer, 2009-2010 series marked 102009-1207. The pour is a handsome golden color with less than a finger of puffy of-white head. It is slightly hazy. The aroma is a crisp, clean wheat scent with some orange peel highlights and subtle hops. The mouthfeel is in the medium range with a honey-like consistency. The taste radiates with orange-citrus, subtle malts, and subtle hops intertwined in an elegant balance. I think I even note a little honey in there. It’s drinkability is high. I highly enjoyed this one and I want to try and grab another couple of them before it is retired for the season.

Hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma is bubblegum, and roses with a bit of citrus and corriander. Taste is the same, and relatively dry with solid carbonation, and clean finish. This is possibly my favorite example in a style that I generally don’t care for. $3/22oz

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(22 oz. bottle (stamped "110309") from Lou’s Beverage Barn) Pours cloudy golden with a tall off-white head in my weizen. Aroma of citrus and spice. Mouthfeel smooth, refreshing. Flavor of citrus-orange and a building spice-coriander note towards finish. Spice-coriander aftertaste. Not a knockout but a pleasant, refreshing witbier.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A big bready spicy dry witbier. Interesting.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a very small white head
In long: The light nose is a bit spicy with notes of coriander, ginger. Taste is bready, a bit doughy, some mouth drying minerals/salty notes, light lemony twist, a lot of jelly beans, dried light colour fruits, spicy orange, dry grass. The weakest of the Long Trail Brewmaster Series so far. Nothing special here, move along people, read other ratings, move along, I said move along, nothing interesting here, plenty of other beer ratings to read, move along. I said MOVE ALONG.

Pours a clean orange-yellow with a touch of white head. Pleasant fruity aroma of strawberry, orange, bread, and bubble gum. Flavor of wheat, orange, and strawberry. There’s a touch of sweetness with just a hint of citrus hops in the finish. Light and crisp body. Damn tasty and enjoyable.
