Poured a very light straw color with a very small white head. Really liked the way it looked in the pint glass. Smelled alright, earthy, and sweet flowery malt. First sip was allright, but as I went on, it was apparent that you could not drink too many of these. Taste was a little acidic in the beginning, then finished with a lot of banana flavors which remained with th

Very aromatic, citrus and banana. Huge rocky head which coats the sides. Light gold with a bit more clarity than I expect from a wit. Taste is slighly soapy with less body than I like in a wit.

Bits of unfiltered yeast settle at the bottom. Has a bit of a sour taste; banana and lime flavors come through. Lingers, and finishes a little oily. Detect some cloves and a little white pepper. Overall a decent offering.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 02/11/15. Served roughly 45 degrees. Hazy pale yellow pour with white foamy head that fades. The aroma has all of the Witbier esters I would hope for including mellow toasted malts, crackers, light spice, orange peel, and wheat. Light body. The taste has the same toasty and mellow herbal quality with a slightly bitter finale. They did this one right.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOD 12/23/14. Pours a cloudy gold. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Outstanding classic Belgian nose of clove, banana, hint of hops, light biscuit and Belgian yeast. As it warms, lemon notes emerge.
Light medium body with a bit of silkiness to the smooth texture. World class carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a rollicking finely bubbled prickly finish.
The flavor profile is very good. Intensity is reasonable, as is balance. The shortcoming is complexity whereas the flavors don’t separate well and come across in a blended, somewhat muted, fashion. Clove is the predominate flavor and the others from the nose are blended underneath. You really have to look for them. The finish is a mild slow fade of phenolic clove.

Lemon-gold with a thin head and a peppery, clove, banana nose. Easy intro with a mild palate followed by a banana and peppery finish.

Draft at The Brass Tap-U Square, served in a flight. I’d seen this on the menu forever and needed to clear it out of my brainspace. It pours a totally clear pale bright gold with a finger of soft cream-colored head that laces the glass and lasts for a while. Notes of banana, wheat, coriander, citrus, doughy and cereal malts, hay, and light herbs. Light-bodied, with medium soft carbonatoin and a dry mouthfeel. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold/green color, cloudy, lacy.
Medium body, moderate flavor, smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation for the style, avg length, uninteresting finish.
Dry, moderate bitterness, low acidity, hint of sweetness in the finish.
Herbal, soapy, yeasty and bready.
Not my style, not fair for me to judge.
