3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I sampled this on draught at New Belgium's brewery in Fort Collins, CO.
Appearance: This brew has a pale straw color and is relatively clear. The other Wit's I've had are cloudy
Aroma: The nose has citrus and yeasty notes in it.
Flavor: this is a slightly crisp, hot weather beer. Definitely something you'd have after mowing the lawn

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a great beer on a hot summer's day. Pale straw color with cloud like head. Lemon, citrus, and yeast aromas. I thought there was a lemon in the beer. Citrus flavors with hint of honey. Light bodied.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap: Clear straw hue with a small head and some lacing. Spices, lemon, fresh hops, and light yeast aroma. Taste started with a tart fruit and wheaty tone then developed a light hop presence midway. Crisp and clean finish. Thin-bodied, dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A very refreshing summer witbeer, darn good for a filtered wheat.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw color and thin head, but lively carbonated body. Very clear. Smells like fresh apples, pears, and coriander. Flavors include oranges and shredded wheat plus subtle malt and hops. Light-body but very smooth and refreshing. Rather like an American Wheat (aside from the coriander and orange peel), this beer would be an excellent brew if it wasn't filtered.

A great summer beer. A classic wheat. It reminded ne of other belgium wheats without bieng to yeasty. This beer definitly raises the bar with wheat beers.

Sampled one on a recent trip West. A good, drinkable brew. I am not greatly familiar with this style, but may pursue it some more now.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Honey golden appearance with moderate carbonation and a thick airy head. A whispher of orange wheat with a thread of coriander in the aroma and lightly flavorful of the same. A step or two up from Blue Moon. This is a very laid back brew, even for a wit. It has an Am. standard mouthfeel, but with flavoring. I did find this beer somewhat appealing.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very typical witbier. Nothing to inspiring to write about here just an average lightly drinkable summer time session beer. Very light and palatable, lightly hoppy with strong scents of fruity sweetness, but when you first open the bottle, I swear to god, it smeels like baby wipes, or that diaper smell. So once you get around that, it is okay.
