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.

4.1 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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. Spicy aroma with lots of hints of orange zest, yeast and coriander. Sweet and spicy at the front with a ton of orange and coriander. Some dry wheat notes come through near the middle but ends with that same spicy flavor. Alcohol is warming. A nice witbier but a little too much spice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy pale gold with a moderate white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. The aroma is filled with fresh orange and coriander. The flavor is equally enjoyable with fresh fruity orange and coriander most notable along with malt and wheat. Virtually no bitterness at the finish. Clean and bright on the palate. I found this beer to be refreshingly different and quite enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz traded bottle. Honestly looks like still, orange TANG when this pour settles out. Started out with a nice white head but nothing now. Not sure if my brain is playing tricks on me but the aroma also seems to be big in the orange department. Also a little sugar and spice in there too. Flavor is nice but once again, maybe a little too much citrus; almost a lemon-lime thing going on.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy, murky orange with a dense head of white foam. The nose has some spicy clove, wheat, and lemon notes. The flavor has some lemon and a slight tartness that works well. Some yeast and spice, but not overpowering. Medium bodied but a little flabby on the tongue with sparse carbonation and a clean finish. Just a little warming on the back end from the alcohol. Pretty well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy, almost pulpy light orange-brown body, medium to thick puffy off-white head. Nose of banana, coriander, orange peel, and wheat, grassy and clean, with a hint of diacetyl. Body with potent coriander and orange peel, spicy and fairly dry, creamy. Very good wit.
