hapjydeuce (924) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
On tap at Lost Abbey for the RBSG ’08 tasting. Hazy straw color with little head. Upfront aroma of wheat grain and sweet malt with honey, pear and grapefruit. Solid and sessionable flavor of clove and banana with grapefruit and orang notes as well. Easy and simple finish. Ends light and crisp. Pretty good.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 11, 2008
On tap at Lost Abbey. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a short cap of white head. The aroma was light and refreshing with toasted banana and lemon zest.. soft and well-presented. The flavor found tart wheat and lemon zest upfront with drier wheaty notes behind.. again refreshing. Lighter-bodied and it moved well across the palate.. higher carbonation kept it dancing through the mouth. Very good stuff.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Sampled at Lost Abbey, RBSG ’08. Pale, mostly clear/slighty hazy golden with a white head. Lemon, coriander, banana and fruity esters in the nose; quite nice. Flavor has notes of lemon, wheat, banana and noble hop herbal grassiness. Light sweetness level, hops make just enough of an appearance for balance. Medium/light bodied with moderate carbonation. Solid witbier.

Bartzilla (532) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Tap @ Hamiltons. Not bad. Your pretty standard witbier. Couldn’t make any grapefruit connection, but I can say it does compliment Hamilton’s buffalo wings nicely. In fact, I had a couple while trying to chip through one of those baskets of Bones Of Fire.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a firm finger of white head. Clean, refreshing wheat malt aromas with hints of citrus and restrained banana yeast characters. Just a touch of herbal hops. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel with a mild wheat acidity. Pleasantly dry and quaffable. Wheaty flavors with a light citrus and herbal hop spice. I couldn’t peg the light citrus character as grapefruit without being told, suggesting craftful integration into this somewhat delicate style. Overall, a very nice sessionable witbier, and it’s certainly nice to see LA produce such a nice "maintstream" beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Draft at Brewery. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head. Wheat and yeasty aroma with a hint of citrus rind. Light bodied with a light refreshing carbonation. Flavor of pale wheat malts, accented by a dry accent of grapefruit. Less sweet than other wits. A tad thin on the finish.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 From tap at the brewery. Pours clear and golden yellow, slight cloudy and with a small white head. Mild estery wheaty aroma with a light banana fruity note. Mild wheaty and light fruity flavour. Light and a bit watery. Ends with a mild fruity/estery flavour. Wellmade but too wheaty/yeasty/estery for my liking.6-3-6-3-11=2.9

From bottle, Papsoes blindtasting #32. Pours clear yellow with note head. Light grassy aroma. Vague citrusy. Mild metallic, grassy and mild malt flavoured. Light bitter to vague citric flavoured finish.5-3-5-2-10=2.5

~RBSG ’08~

On tap at The Linkery. Looks like orange juice. Creamy white head, cloudy, and nice lacing. Malty peach aromas, hay, citrus, wheat, coriander. Flavor has lots of coriander, floral hops, dry malts, sticky and sweet, some citrus. Dry finish, sticky mouthfeel, easy and smooth.

Clean bright yellow pour with full white head. Banana and clove along with some spiciness in the nose. More spice in te flavor, but oin a smooth, light way. Dry, tannic finish. Delicate and easy on the palate.

illidurit (2114) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Sampled on tap at RBSG at Lost Abbey. Pours a hazy goldenrod color with a dense white head that leaves wispy lacing. Nose is spicy with some nice wheaty ester notes. Flavor is full and complex, with coriander, orange peel, banana, and melon rind. A very fulfilling and drinkable wit.
