4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is a hazy light yellow/straw color with just a small white head.
S: Starts off with a very bright citrus and citrus peel aroma. There is a lot of wheat and some light spices, which is pretty much how I like my witbiers. Itís very fruity, which is sort of surprising. And of course, thereís a bit of yeast.
T: The flavor is also very fruity, which you donít normally expect for a witbier, but I think itís great. Heavy on the citrus with only mild spices. Lots of wheat bread and sweet malts with a touch of yeast.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: This was very light and refreshing and had very nice aromas and flavors. One of the best witbiers Iíve had.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow color. Orange and spice are the predominate aroma. The taste is somewhat more watery than I expected. It is fairly refreshing but lacks a really distinct flavor.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Spencer. Pours a somewhat cloudy straw color with a medium white head. The aroma is coriander and light oranges. The flavor is smooth spices, peppery, some lingering citrus in the finish, quite dry which I enjoy in this brew. Very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor of wheat, mild banana and fruit, coriander, orange zest, a bit of pepperiness. Finish is a bit sweet. Mouthfeel and carbonation are light. Nice and summery but awfully mild.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Got a 6er of this for a fathers day gift. Pours a bright hazy gold with medium foamy white head. Minimal aroma - slight dough with lemon zest. Flavor light and sweet, pretty plain dough and sugared oranges, lite carbonation, could use more. Overall, pretty weak.
