3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Asahiya. Honey, yeast, light citrus, lemon flowers. Hazy dark apple juice color, thin (nearly no) head, fat bubbles on the bottom of the glass. Wheat, orange initial / coriander and light lemon / thin sweetness in final, and then fades slowly. Light body, pleasant and with mild carbonation. Very tasty, gentle, and smooth. Could use a little more body. Very drinkable. Would like to have another on a hot day.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, 16 Tons Taphouse. Pours a very light golden straw color, little head. Aroma leans yeast, some citurs, but not to the degree of specificity of Mandarin oranges. Might want a bit of a stronger aroma, but what is here is pretty nice. Body is lively, finish a bit disappointing, on the thing side, does open up a bit with oranges and coriander. Not world class, but certainly a solid effort.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a cloudy yellow straw with a half finger of white head. Settles immediately with no lacing. Aroma is pineapple, citrus, peach, wheat, sweet, and coriander. Flavor is sweet, citrus, mild pineapple/tropical fruit up front. With a coriander, wheaty finish. Quite sweet and fruity throughout and the coriander isn’t as overbearing as i remember. Think this beer would benefit from having the fruitiness toned down a bit. Coriander flavor really comes out as it warms. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, and smooth texture. The fruity and smooth nature of this beer make it highly drinkable. A pleasant, very fruity, light and drinkable witbier.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Thistle News, Aberdeen. It pours hazy pale golden with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is orange squash, sweatiness and strong coriander. The taste is wheat, zesty orange, tangy, herbal (particularly coriander), banana and weak orange squash with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. I like the orange flavour, but the strong coriander on the nose doesn’t float my boat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewpub. Cloudy yellow body with a thin, white head. Aroma of toasted wheat grain, coriander, lemon peel, citrus. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Pretty much the same in the finish with light to moderate acidity. Light to medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Average and leaning more toward a sweet wheat beer than a wit.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Scores lower overall than I feel it deserves, but hey - it’s only a beer and I’m not gonna hurt its feelings. Not much banana, more pineapple, I like pineapple but it’s a bit weak. Virtually no alcohol coming through. Not too bad.
