2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazed blond with a medium puffy white head. A closer examination reveals some particles suspended in the body. Nose is citrus, spice, hops and not much else. The tongue is met with spice and fruit. It's sweet but has a weird spice taste to it. It's a lingering orange peel and coriander mix and it sits for a bit. Kind of a perfumy taste. I wouldn't want to drink more than one of these at a sitting. Smooth mouthfeel but the finish consists of the afore mentioned lingering taste.

This would be a pretty good summer brew for when you're just wanting something to drink. It's nothing special, though.
Pours a cloudy golden with very litle head and no lacing.
Smells very fruity, with corriander being the most prominent scent.
Tastes, well, not like much of anything. It's a white, but there's little character to it. I gotta be honest, I can't even find much there to describe.
Mouthfeel is light and carbonated.
Drinkability scores high only because it would be quite refreshing if it were cold and you needed your thirst quenched. There's nothing objectionable about this beer at all.

fizzy yellow color, thick white head. Sweet floury taste. Floral aroma and slightly sticky palate.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Blond color, big head. Light aroma, corn and vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, light taste, a bit lemony: bad. Useless final.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow, good head, crazy amount of floaties with a weird brown color. Aroma citrusy. Flavor was a bit wheaty, very faint coriander, a bit of yeast. Citrus died as it warmed. Not my favorite wit.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ok was very surprised to see this in the West Salem Roths grocery so snatched it up along with the Downtown Brown ( which I will review at a later date)..22 oz brown glass bomber..cartoon shark with only partially eaten surfboard!!.
Nice enough looking witbier..golden coloured slightly hazy small head..leaves goodish laceing.
Great malty/coriander aroma..quite fresh..lovelly.
Mm taste is awash with flavour but not very "heavy" the coriander..lemon..malts..herbs its a nice mix.
I felt the mouthfeel was too carbonated..and it washed away the flavours too quick.
For all its faults its a very drinkable brew..would be great in the summer heat.

Wonderful fruity smell. Can definitely pick out the coriander. Murky yellow hue with lightly sweet and moderately acidic flavor. Sure felt light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pale yellow pour with a large white head. A strong aroma that is hoppy with a bit of spice. The flavor is not as strong. No wheat really comces through. A sweet citrus flavor with very little hop in the finish. A sweet piney aftertaste. Very light in flavor and body. Not a bad summer cool down but not as impressive as the other Lost Coast brews I have tried.

This is not a witbier as far as I'm concerned. It's an american wheat. I never have been impressed by american wheats. I thought this might be a bit better because of the added coriander, but I couldnt even taste it. One nice thing is that it doesn't have much of an acidic aftertaste as some american wheats tend to have.

I wasn't very impressed with this beer. It might have been a bit too light. The bottle was a little small too (doesn't affect my rating though). I would drink it agian though.
