Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/6/12
Aroma: This one has a wheat and spice/coriander type of nose, with some lemon
Appearance: It pours an unclear yellow color with a white head and medium lace
Flavor: The flavor is spice, wheat, and lemon as well, it is light sweet, with mid-plus spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively carbonation, and it has a spicy finish to it
I found this one to be a solid example of the Belgian white style. Another interesting beer that I was glad I got to try at Maui. Overall, their beers are all pretty interesting, and many of them are also quite good. This brewpub was definitely worth a stop.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Cloudy blond color. Some aroma of wheat, fruit, sweet. Mild flavor, some boring wheat, without character, some vegetables, quite sweet, low bitterness, and even some alcohol feeling. Nothing interesting, not Belgian not German, just a sweetish Wheat Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Did this a disservice by drinking several straight from the can at a poolside luau. Finally poured one in a glass a couple weeks later and discovered fine witbier. Light and lemony with plenty of wheat and noticeable spice and yeast.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours an opaque golden color with a generous white head. The aroma is grainy and the flavor is tangy with the mandarin oranges playing a key role. It’s a good beer for a hot day.
