3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a copper glow and a thin, half centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, grass, flowers, apricots, pears, bubble gum, anise and a hint of earth - very nice and complex. Medium-bodied; Pungent light hoppiness with a good bitter kick at the end, some coriander seed freshness, a bit of yeast and wheat, some light curacao and lemon notes and a dry, grassy and herbal finish. Aftertaste quite complex with the dry and grainy flavours really coming through and a hint of bitterness still noticeable from the hops. Overall, a good blend of a wit and an APA - not horribly hoppy, but dry and grassy, showing the wit side, and very nice for the summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington (thanks Kev!), Virginia on 26-June-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-July-2013.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
White, I think it to be a witbier, but its a beldjie. Smell is mild fruity hop flower perfume. Rather strong on the uptake, seems more than 6%. Certainly not a well mannered wit, heheh. If its a beldjie, not sure how this rates along side orval, heheh. Some hops in there make it imperial grape fruit rinds none the less. Surprizingly long bitter finish. Rate this an eye pah. Decent sizzle almost makes it palatable to a lager lover, almost.

Bottle. Clear rich yellow pour with a spotty white head. Kind of a neat interplay here - yeast hits first, then some citrus zest. Slight hop bite comes in on the taste. Aroma is more impactful than the flavor. Not bad.

The wheat pale ale is a unique beer made by New Holland. My first WPA, it pleasantly surprised me with a robust pale flavor.

Pours a nice clear solar yellow with a fairly thick eggshell head. Malty and fruity aroma is not strong but invites a taste. Malty flavor is surprisingly hoppy, not bitter at all, subtly fruity, a woody hint. Smooth flavor has average thickness, though a decent and persistent fizz. Finish is fruity and hoppy, rather subtle. Get your white had on and enjoy one.

This is a hybrid. The pour is golden yellow with a thin white lacing head. The aroma has the Belgian spice and some fruitiness. the flavor is where the hops take over. Very crisp and clean. Nice and dry and quite refreshing.

draft at Mad Mex. Pours a hazy yellow golden with inch white head. Aroma of hops, some spices. Flavor has a hoppy overtone, spicy malts, well balanced. Medium to light body, slight bitter finish, some complexity, drinkable, good carbonation, lightly chalky. I liked the "hybrid" style, weel done!!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is slightly hazy with an orange hue, the head is short with poor retention, thin density.
Aroma: The aroma is strong of solventy orange, perhaps coriander. and hints of banana.
Taste: The flavor matches the aroma, dry with coriander and hay, hints of banana.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a huge fan of the style and this does nothing to help me like it more.

Bottle from Wegmans. Pours fairly clear orange with a medium sized white head, carbonation in the glass, and some light yeast floaties. The aroma has the best attributes of a witbier with plenty of pepper, coriander, orange, spices, and a little Belgian yeast. The taste has a nice bitter punch that is well balanced with the citrus and spiciness. Pretty solid.
