Hazy yellow, white head. Yummy light yeast and grain, very little coriander for the style, no tartness :( Nonetheless light and refreshing; a good summer brew. Could use a bit more of something; a very safe wit.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland, OR. White small head that mostly lasted, fair amount of lacing, no carbonation observed, cloudy, and a yellow hue. Nose was sweet, spicy and orange peel. Flavor was dry, sweet, spicy, and citrus. Light in body. I definitely have had better of this style as I flat out did not like this one as the flavor just seemed totally off for the style.

On tap at Oregon Trail’s Olde World Deli in Corvallis, OR--Poured a soapy yellow bosy with a small wispy white head. Nose of lemon, orange peel and wheaten yeast. Thin bodied and not as punchy as other wits, but quite drinkable. Very nice, not great, though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a head of frothy fine to medium sized bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a hazy softly carbonated yellow-orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was malty bready mild spice and dough. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops and floral. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was my least favorite out of all the tastings I sampled. Did not really come across as a witbier, but just more of a spicy wheat based ale. Some nice, yeasty clove notes, a little bit of banana and some other lingering spices in the finish. Overall an interesting mixture of sweet and sour.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Very acidic and sharp - and we found out why from one of the assistant brewers. They use certain type of malt (the exact name slips my mind) that alone has a very sharp, bitter citrus-like flavor... strange for sure, but it gives this witbier a flavor like it’s been mixed with concentrated lemon juice... which is actually REALLY tasty, since it sort of mimics a lambic sourness. This wit had it all: a bust of active, peppy lemon and wheat zest followed by a sweet fruit and creamy body. Unique if nothing else.
