Bottle from Chip the Beer Guy and a pretty solid wit which nicely balances coriander, orange peel and spices. Mouthfeel had medium texture and good amount of carbonation to boot. Good summer wit.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottled 05-10. Hazy golden with a lasting disc of foam. Nose of acidic yeast, citrus, light resin. Flavor is wheat, zesty orange-lemon, pear, clove, coriander and bubblegum. Medium body is tingly and refreshing. One of the better American takes on the Witbier style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The description says, "It pours very hazy"...my bottle poured completely clear, absolutely not haze. A bit of an off aroma with some sourness and mold hiding a nice dough scent. Tastes better than it smells with citrus, rice, and yeast. Finishes with sour and a bit of hops. This ones pretty easy to drink, though I gotta say Iím not impressed with how it smells or looks. (This one needs to be rerated...itís an old bottle Iíve had around too long.)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle - poured a hazy gold with a decent head and nice lacing throughout. Aromas of wheat, lemon, yeast, coriander and some spruce. Flavors of wheat, yeast, lemon and coriander - exactly what I expected from the aroma - no disappointment there. Body was light, crisp and very refreshing. I really like the beers coming out of the this local brewery.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Bruisiní poured into a tulip glass. This looks really light for a witbier. Itís solid yellow and hazy, not as cloudy as I would expect. A decent white head forms on top. I lean in to take a whiff: uh-oh. This smells like Budweiser a little bit. Notes of corn and newspaper with compost undertones are found, though I can tell this is a wit by aroma alone since there are some obvious citrus and banana scents as well. The flavor isnít as rough as I anticipated. Itís light with refreshing citrus notes and weak spices. That same newspaper/Bud thing is going on but not as strong. This bares strong resemblance to Blue Moon.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light straw color with nice carbonation and little to no head. The nose is orange zest, honey and a nice earthy wheat backdrop. Easy drinking with citrus and grain flavors. Maybe a little light but a nice summer beer. Finishes clean.

12 oz. bottle from Fresh Market in Greenville, NC. Light golden yellow pour with a thin, creamy white head. Aroma of tart orange and lemon, green apples, bready yeast, and coriander. Flavor of orange peel, a hint of bubblegum, and spices. Very light. A good witbier.

How come some wits have a whiff of blueberry, even when there is no blueberry in them? Does anybody know? Anyone? Anyway, this was very tasty - a little bit of coriander, some orange, and the aforementioned blueberry. Enjoyable.
