3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
In central new york this is a standard substitution for Blue Moon. It does a pretty good job of taking itís place. Cloudy golden color with a white head that recedes quickly. A strong citrus, especially orange aroma. Definitely a wheat beer taste. The palate was carbonated and a bit thin. Mild sweetness. This isnít a complex beer but it goes down easy.

Light gold with very little head. Light citrus aroma with some wheat and clove notes. Orange and citrus come out on the palate. Smooth and light bodied, good carbonation. Easy drinking and enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz Bottle. Pours with thick white head that fades rather quickly. The color is a light yellow that is almost clear. There was noticeable floating sediment in my glass. Aroma of coriander, yeast, florals and orange peel. Taste is crisp; that mirrors the aroma. It had a almost light vanilla aftertaste. Nothing real exciting but a good beer. Depending what you have to choose from at a given retailer, this still maybe a good choice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Middle Ages Swallow Wit is a pretty clear light golden ale with a solid, dense white head that fades and leaves some lacing on the glass. It has a spicy aroma with notes of lemon and phenol. Thereís almost a hint of sweetness in the nose. Itís pretty light bodied and pretty lively with a crisp, dry finish. Itís lightly flavored with wheat, lemon and spice: orange peel, coriander and maybe clove. Itís very refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governorís Island, 6/19/10
Aroma: Nose of spice and yeast
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color
Flavor: Taste is spice and wheaty notes as well
Palate: The body is light, its a touch thin, and decently drinkable
Overall this is a pretty standardish attempt at a Wit. Drinkable, quaffable, and ultimately pretty forgettable. The word "average" seems to dominate my notes.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden pour with intermittent hazy particles. The aroma is lemony wheat malt, clove, orange, and coriander. Pretty lackluster. The flavor is much the same except much more dull. Lots of grainy wheat with lemon and orange being most prevalent. Really not much happening. Palate is epically thing and doesnít really have a finish to speak of. Unpleasant.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Copper colored pour with a small fizzy head. Aroma holds wheat, lemon, orange, and coriander- classic Belgian white, but pretty dull and uninteresting in its complexity. Flavor holds banana, grain, light lemon and orange, and some sweet spices. Very one-dimensional. Palate is light bodied, dull finish. Boring beer.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden body with a light white head. Aroma is pleasant with some citrus and grass notes accompanied by some slight resin. While the aroma is enjoyable the taste leaves much to be desired. A watery mouth feel with little carbonation and almost no flavor, only some slight bitterness and hay character remains. Finishes out with only a slight aftertaste that quickly fades. Overall a less than stellar showing from Middle Ages.

Had this on tap at the brewery and bottled. Poured a cloudy yellow-orange with off-white head. Aroma of orange peels and coriander, very pleasant. I wasnít too impressed with the flavor though, a thought it was a little flat and didnít really have much to it. Average, but drinkable.
