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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pellucid yellow color with little head and diminishing lacing. Malty citrus aroma, strong notes of grapefruit and light floral hops, sweet fruit (apples), in the end a fresh (clean) diaper smell. Coriander flavors with a sweet honey flavor. Dry musky finish, very refreshing. New belgium always surprises me with their styles, I totally expected this to be an american wheat.

Medium head, Golden color. Sediment free. Some malt in the taste. Some orange too. Nothing too special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Modest head, a clear golden color with a citrusy aroma. Light, sweet and with a tang of orange but I don't really connect with the coriander. Very smooth finish. Refreshing but just kind of ho hum. Maybe I'm just spoiled by their trippel.
