1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Just terrible! Yes, I did taste the hops and coriander. But no orange peel. At least I couldn’t pick it up. They used the wrong yeast strain. The beer had no rentention. It didn’t even look like a witbier. It looked more like a lager.
I would avoid this one. Grab a whirl wind or a hoegaarden instead. I somehow got through this one and gave away the other 5.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Hazy, wheaty, unfiltered straw body with a head that fizzles away in mere seconds. Clumpy yeast aroma with light citrus peel, orange zest, & the most modest hint of clove. Very light, uninspiring overall. Taste is quite watery as well, leaving much to be desired. Muted, spicy clove, orange peel, some dirty yeast. A little bready. Over-carbonated with an effervescent mouth feel. Mediocre for the style, just missing a lot of the marks. Pass.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’m suddenly reminded of a comical song by Kip Addota called “Wet Dream” that use to be played on Dr. Demento when I was just a kid way back in the 1980s. I loved that show and would stay up late on a Sunday to hear the crazy songs and funny five. I even sent in a request and won a t-shirt but sadly never heard my request as I was on vacation at that time. This has absolutely nothing to do with the beer but gets me to thinking about beer names. Some companies just go IPA, brown ale, pilsener for their names and frankly, though descriptive that’s kind of boring. I’d much rather drink “Contrite Blight Delight Ale” than “Pale Ale”. Some companies are outlandish with their names like “Apocalyptic Nightmare”, “Transcontinental Tsunami” or “Three-toed sloth two-row barley single malt ale”. Okay, I made those names up but sometimes a name of a beer is the most exciting thing it has going. And that’s the case here. It’s a witbier with no real redeeming qualities. It looks like a witbier – milky straw yellow with a quickly fading airy white head. It smells like a witbier with coriander, lemon peel, and some bready yeast. It taste sort of like a witbier with coriander, caramel, citrus and sweeter malts and perhaps a bit of honey. It’s grainy, thin and astringent… but it sent me to youtube to check out that video for Wet Dream, and for that Mount Pleasant, I thank you

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. Hazy, dirty gold color with very thin ring of head. Nose is light notes of yeast and citrus. Flavor is mostly yeast with lemon citrus and a mild bitterness in the finish. I see some carbonation bubbles in my glass, yet the mouthfeel seems flat. The flat feeling bugs me but overall for the style it’s right on point for what it should be. Overall average.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange, banana, clove, wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet orange, clove, and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. Kind of like a hybrid witbier and Hefeweizen leaning towards the latter- pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle - Pours lightly hazy yellow-gold. It has a yeasty, banana rich aroma. The flavor is sweet and light with banana and yeast flavors and a minimal hops presence. It’s light bodied and quite decent. I had it back to back with their Second Wind Wheat and rated them as equal.
