3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught and cask samples at the brewpub. Cloudy lemon-gold with a bit more head on the CO2 version....succulent aroma of lemon zest, coriander, lilac and honeysuckle, very floral and strong (less so in cask version)....body dry, rather yeasty, with lots of lemon oil towards the finish, light spicing....low, tingly carbonation....cask version is a bit fuller in body, and a bit more delicate and subtle but in this case perhaps too much so, rather duller than the bright CO2 version and with a much weaker aroma....rating is for regular tap version, cask would be about .3 lower overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at GCBC 2005. Pours cloudy yellow with a fully receding white head. Aroma is mild citrus from the orange peel. Taste is spicy with some wheat showing up in the finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Enjoyable, but I like more extreme spicing in witbiers.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Pale yellow with appropriate cloudiness and a nice, white head. The coriander and orange are pronounced and create a very pleasant aroma. The body is fairly dry and refreshing with a slight bit of tartness in the end. A very tasty witbier. Easily in the top tier of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite a substantial amount of orange in this wit - at the expense of being a little less spicy than some (a plus in my book). The tanginess is sensed in the aroma, and carries all the way through. The palate was rounder and more complex (chunky wheat almost comes through asa solid) than most of this style - a winner indeed.
