Mother Earth’s Weeping Willow puts Blue Moon to shame. Can taste the orange in the beer. However it is dryer than a normal wit and is less filling. The appearance is also very classy

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had this at the Chef & Farmer resturant in Kinston, NC. It Poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coriander, cardamom, orange peel, citrus fruits, and honey. True Belgian Style Wit. Yeast is no doubt a treu Belgian Yeast strain. Alcohol is nicely hidden. We had a party of 10 and it was definatly their favaorite beer, and I am not sure that it will not become my beer of choice if they ever release it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce single from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, North Carolina. The first digits on the ’Brewed On’ date are smudged, so, it’s either from August (08) or all the way back in March (03).
Appearance: Pours a cloudy, flaxen-hued body with just oven an inch of sturdy, whitish foam.
Smell: Soft aroma of wheat berries with welcome notes of wildflower honey, savory spice, and fresh orange peelings.
Taste: Lightly sweet, lightly tangy, honey-hinting wheat malt, maybe some pils malt in the mix as well, given a slight yeasty dough character. The sweetness is complimented by a spicy whole coriander taste and a zip of zesty orange peel. A bit more citrus and fluffed wheat for the easy-going finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: I enjoyed it. Tasty and refreshing all the way down to the final sip.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Grass, lemongrass, and coriander nose, very green. Hazy yellow, medium head with little retention. Malty, grassy, coriander, lemongrass flavor. Medium body, alcohol not noticed. Crisp clean finish. Full of flavor and complexity, but sessionable as a good wit should be. Quite nicely hopped without being what one might call a white IPA. Great job!

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.

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. It’s very fruity, which is sort of surprising. And of course, there’s a bit of yeast.
T: The flavor is also very fruity, which you don’t normally expect for a witbier, but I think it’s 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 I’ve had.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is strong and surprisingly fruity, having components of sour apple and orange. It pours a rather nice somewhat hazy amber with a decent white head. I noticed a few goobers floating around, but they were not off-putting. Flavor is sublime - wheaty and yeasty with an overtone of honey and good fruity notes, mainly sour orange with hints of apple and lemon, and as I continue to drink, herbal and clove tones - very tasty. Texture is smooth but only slightly fizzy, leaving a slightly sweet fruity finish. A good drink to enjoy in winter, this brings a little sunshine into a cold, cloudy day - and as I drink this, the weather is dreary, cold and wet.

Originally reviewed: 6/17/10. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear pale gold with a thin white head on top. No retention; no lace. Scents of salt water taffy, bubblegum, orange zest, and light grains.
The mouth is crisp and effervescent. Very good flavors of lemon, tart yeast, white bread, with a semi-sweet finish. Admittedly, this is not one of my favorite styles, but I am enjoying it more and more. This one is a good representation, IMO. Tart and refreshing. Recommend.

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.

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.
