3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from Chipís in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Hazy golden in color with a one-finger white head, decent lacing, and some sediment floating in the beer. Floral and wheaty aroma, with rather subdued Belgian yeast and a good citrus and spice note to it. The flavor is rather perfumy and floral, with subtle wheat malt, orange peel, and coriander. Nicely balanced. Fairly smooth on the mouthfeel with average carbonation. A solid if not inspirational witbier overall.

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.
