3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Colter Bay in Buffalo. Iím a big Long Trail fan, but I gotta say, this is the worst of the Brewmaster series so far, IMO. Perhaps itís just cause Iím not as big a fan of the style as I am of the coffee stouts. It had a nice yellow pour with a decent head. Taste was slightly fruity, but overwhelmingly spicy at the end. Citrus, coriander, pepper. The finish started to get offputting after awhile, and I quit after 2 pints. I might drink it again if itís the best beer available, but Iím not going to rush out and buy a bomber of it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Brazen Head. Poured a totally flat, headless and lifeless cloudy urine color, but thatís probably a result of a dodgy tap. Aromas of wheaty malt, lemon, orange and spices. Sweet and flowery honey, orange and lemon flavors laced with a complex herbal package--coriander for sure, but also maybe fennel seed and ginger as well. Reminiscent of the Coney Island Albino Python. For some reason this one really kicked me in the head booze-wise. Too strong and busy for a session Wit, and too light and citrusy for a winter specialty ale, but an interesting concoction nonetheless.

a really nice white ale, the only knock is the color is very clear, not hazy like most white ales. great citrus and coriandor zest and some spice, not like allagash, but its there. great finish, went down very easy and begged for another sip, would love to do it again.

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.

Cold 22oz bottle: Pours a cloudy bright lemon yellow color with a big, fluffy alabaster head that slowly diminishes and leaves lots of lacing inside the glass.

Ending is of spice, lemon and sweet malt notes.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Never have I had a witbier quite this perfect. Smooth, yet complex. Citrusy, yet not acidic. Sweet, but not cloying. This witbier is refreshing and well-balanced with hints of lemon, malt, and very light hops. Enjoy this in moderation, as it is very unnoticeably strong.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. Slightly hazy golden pour with thin white film head. Aroma was mild citrus and yeast. Flavor was basic citrus, spice and yeast. Thin body and sweeter than most whites. I was a bit disappointed in this one, I expected more from Long Trail here.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap at the Long Trail Brewery. Cloudy Golden Color with white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste with corriander and alcohol burn finish. This beer is pretty much the same as the belgian white but the coriander is more potent and the stong alcohol finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle. Pours a deeper orange/white hue, decent depth. Aromas are sweet and malty, some bready, citrus is fairly obvious. Palate is way too cloying, sweetness through the mid dulls any kind of citrus acidity that this would have given off. Itís a bit one sided the abv is prevelent, some oxidation settling in.
