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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle, 2009 vintage from Bert’s Better Beers. Use a weizen glass. This beer poured a very cloudy yellow-orange with a huge yellow-white head that dissipated quickly. The aroma was very strong and distinct coriander, sweet orange and lemon. The best coriander note I have ever found in a wit. Also, nice floating sediment and spices floating around in the glass. The flavor was strong orange and coriander with undertones of lemon, pepper and yeastiness. Medium length finish. Fairly full bodied. Excellent. I can’t believe this come out in the winter, It would be fantastic on a warm summer night.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber from a trip to NY in the summer. Glorious wit nose, sweet and spicy with loads of lemon essence. Clear golden-orange body ringing through with a beautiful lacing rocky white head. Taste is juicy and rounded, not one-dimensional as most wits are, with nicely integrated and relaxed alcohol. Aftertaste is short and hints at lemon cleaning fluid, but long-term resolution brings about notes of residual fresh-baked bread. Medium-full body, very flavorful, soft and oily with an occasional angular tang. Truly synergistic while displaying deft, almost casual balance. Time may have helped to mellow this beast, which may be drinking at its peak right now - nothing about this is overbearing, not the coriander or orange and lemon base. I’m not rating according to style, but it’s hard not to remark how textbook this is, among the best I’ve ever had, and proof that this style can be ’imperialized’ without losing its soul.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention. Lemon and wheat aromas. Lemon joy upfront turning to marshmallow and wheat in the alcohol soaked summer fruit finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle in a Weizen glass. Pours opaque orangish amber with a thin white head. Aroma of spice and doughy yeast. Very spicy flavor, and a sweet finish that reminds me a little of Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat. Light on the palate. Not bad, but for a wit, I’d rather have Hoegaarden any day.
