3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ox. bottle pours a hazy orange with white head and decent lacing. Aroma has spices, Belgian yeast, and passion fruit. Taste is on the sweet side with a bitter finish. Body is medium with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Body is medium with slight carbonation. I thought this might be yet another american witbier, but it has a few surpises, although not as comolex as I had hoped for.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma of passion fruit, white pepper, clean cereal grain, and banana. Appears hazy yellow, thick white lace, and a nice layer of unfading white foam. Tastes of mildly sweet passion fruit and peach up front, changes into a savory oregano-marijuana bitterness that fades away to the background while the peach continues to linger. Palate is fizzy and filling. Overall, a very good, nearly great beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Hazed, unfiltered golden-yellow body with a chunky, soapy, foamy white cap that recedes hesitantly down the glass. Aroma is more witbier than IPA. Clove, coriander, orange peel, gummy Belgian yeast, citrus zest, mild peppery spice, perhaps even a touch of mint? Taste is even spicier, with more clove & white pepper. Coriander steps it up a notch, too, giving off a big herbal orange tea vibe. Gummy, hints of citrus spritz, wheat, & spicy, bready Belgian yeast leading into the aftertaste. Decent brew.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well, this was not quite what I expected. It is a murky orange color w/ a head of fine white bubbles and great sheets of lace. Its nose is fairly mild. I am getting a touch of lavender and some citrus, perhaps from coriander. Once tasted, a surprising spicy character comes out, something along the line of apples and cinnamon. I am not sure the origin of these flavors--or if they are even intentional--but it is actually quite pleasant and works quite well w/ the light, creamy texture. It finishes dry w/ a lingering spiciness. Honestly, this is pretty much a beer w/o style as I drank it, I guess just a "Belgian ale" which doesn’t really mean anything. I was expecting a typical white IPA and this is way more spicy. Still, the surprise is pleasant and that is always a good thing.

Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orange with a light but persistent white head. Aroma has some clove and bubble gum accents. Flavor is closer to hefe than a wit. Pick up some banana accents, a brief hint of cloves, some saffron-like spiciness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. let’s just call this one decent.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting white style ale. Has a very good appearance long-lasting head, lots of lace. Hazy light amber color. Aroma is yeast lemon malt. Flavors like aroma with some spice but the yeast dominates. Power of the yeast is a little too strong here for this beer.
