3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy dark orange color with a thin broken white head. Chalky aroma with a bit of a heartier orange peel and coriander component than most wits, plus a nice earthy hop finish. Taste is subdued for a double wit, lots of citrus on the finish. A nice drinkable wit that is not overly light.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught, EBF 08. Hazy blonde. Nose is of tangerines, wheat. Mouth is really punchy, fruity, lively, but at the same time eminently drinkable. Hoppiness towards the end, with some herbal qualities. Brilliant.

25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy oak brown with a puffy white head that settles leaving a lacy ring. Nose is wheat, lemon, orange peel and coriander. Medium light with faint biting carb. Taste is orange and grapefruit peel, wheat, coriander and lemon oil. Extra hoppy but still remains true to the style.

24 karat pour with a 2 inch fluffy cloud perched on top. A nice amount of carbonation trickles up the glass. Aroma is orange peel and yeast. Flavor is extremely hoppy with bright citrus, lemongrass, and coriander finding their way onto the palate. Not my favorite style but I can appreciate the effort.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. A hazy orange body under a minimal white head. Citrus, coriander and some notes of yeast on the nose. Sweet in a way, but mostly citrusy and fruity, with orange, and a long finish with orange and coriander. Medium mouthfeel, quite dry. The orange makes it remind me of the Norwegian soda Solo, but in a pleasant beery way. A beer I could enjoy all day, especially on a hot day. (080912)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a soft white head. More like a belgian golden with coriander. Tropical fruit spice in the nose, soft wheat and citrus. Very floral beer throughout, like combining the nice spiciness of the wit with a nice tripel.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml split a couple of ways. Hazy golden/orange in color with a lasting medium head, nice lacing on my delirium tremens glass. Aroma of spices, orange, a good amount of citrus/floral hops and wit yeast. Taste is very hoppy for a strong wit, some tropical fruit, but stil has the wit yeast character, as well as some mild tart wheat. Medium bodied. Finished mildly tart with some lingering spices and hop bitterness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by robert at stateline... So good I bought a bottle home. Light hazy orange in color, big head. Good lacing. Citrus and grapefruit aroma. Super hoppy for a witbier! Still has the spices, peachy, and lemon flavor that make a witbier. Texture was a little thicker then most witbiers, but what do you expect when they bump the alcohol level. Good beer. Thanks robert for putting me on to this one
