Draft. Poured hazy copper color with a large fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus, spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Milky straw to golden yellow with a creamy off-white slowly dissipating head. Aroma of grains, coriander, floral and citrus hops and something medicinal. Taste is medicinal and floral with leafy attributes and a mild bitter and spicy finish. So-so and prefer an IPA or a witbier. Similar to the throw away style Belgian IPA.

Bottle. Cloudy straw body, medium-thick off-white head. Grassy nose with coriander and herbal/floral hops. Spicy body, hoppy with tropical fruit notes and hay; perfumey and floral. Interesting but tiresome after a few ounces.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Once Upon a Vine. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, sweet wheat and herbal notes. The taste is wheat, citrus and herbal hops. Spicy finish. Medium bodied and refreshing. A simple but nice beer. My negative opinion of New Holland is starting to change.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I REALLY like this one, a lot more than I expected. From a bottle, pours a slightly hazy, pale hay with no real head. Aroma is citrusy hops and belgian, bready yeast. Taste is an excellent blend of spicy, citrusy (lots of lemon), and yeast. It’s a changing tastes too, and goes in the above order before all settling together on the tongue. It doesn’t last too long on the palate though. Excellent summertime addition to this always great series.

A barely hazy golden beer and a small white head with good retention. The aroma is a nice blend of fruity Belgian yeast and spices. The flavor is very floral and quite bitter with some funk and spice.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma has a deffinate hop to it. I also get some spice and clove. Flavor is some corriander, tropical fruit and a decent hoppy backbone. A decently hopped wit.
