3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma contains lots of wheat, lemon, banana, and a little bit of orange. The taste is pretty much what I was expecting from the aroma. It is very similar. Wheat flavors still dominate, and some impressions of lemon and orange are found underneath. Short aftertaste is wheat and lemon. Light in body, with fizzy carbonation and texture. Its ok, but it isn’t very exciting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a two-finger thick, bubbly head. Color is hazy gold, similar to hay straw. Very lively carbonation. Aroma is crisp, sweet wheat, floral bouquet. Taste is crisp, light, wheat, touch of lemon zest, mild banana. Palate is banana, wheat, bread but very clean tasting. This beer would be highly enjoyable during warm summer nights. It gives off a feeling of cooling down the body due to its crisp and light flavors. Glass retains a Belgian lace.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 3/28/2012. Pours hazy pale straw color with a 2 finger fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, pear, orange peel, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, floral, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, orange peel, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, floral, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruit, citrus, coriander, pepper, clove, wheat, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with wheat; with a moderate malt balance; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish as expected. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish as expected. Overall this is a damn nice witbier! Great balance and complexity of fruity and spicy esters with wheat; and extremely smooth to drink. This is spot on to style; a very enjoyable offering.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
After a cheerful pop from the cork this pours a hazy straw colored gold with a bone white head of foam that fell off to a thin skin and cap that never left. Great soapy lace. This beer literally glows in the glass and is so lovely to look at. Nose is bright and funky with Belgian, citrus, and hay. Underneath is a big malt profile with wheat, honey and grain. A touch of spice and orange rind as it warms. Taste is tart with lemon and dry with a hint of hop bitter that stands up gracefully next to a big cracker malt and fresh wheat. Creamy clean, sparkling carbonation, it leaves with a touch of honey and a taste of sour not bitter . Drinks light and amiable. Ommegang has done it again with a classic wit that’s radiant and refreshing.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
First beer review so stick with me here. Aromo is citrusy, more so than I was expecting. Appearance was much lighter and clearer than I was expecting. The head was similar to other wheat beers. Definitely a little fizzy, great carbonation. Went down very smooth. Would recommend to those who enjoy wheat beers.
