3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed golden color, foamy white head has good retention. Aroma of lemon, some sort of sweet spice and grass/hay. Taste is much the same, not too sweet, not as much perfume spice and orange flavor as other witís Iíve had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger frothy white head that slowly fades into a thick lasting ring.
Slightly earthy, spicy aroma with hints of grassy hops, pale malt, yeast and citrus. Lots of lemon zest, pepper and coriander with bread ans wheat notes.
Full bodied with a nice balance of earthy hops, crisp light and citrus fruit, zesty spice and bread/yeast. The hops compliment the peppery, coriander spiciness really well creating a crisp bite up front that lingers over the sweeter notes into a slight dry finish. Thereís some pale malt underneath along with a prominent yeast/bread character and lots of sweet citrus rind. Very flavorful, refreshing and easy to drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on 6/22/2011. This witbier pours a slightly hazy yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheat, citrus, orange some yeast and spices. A medium to light bodied witbier. The malts are citrusy, wheat, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and herbal. Lively carbonation. A very dry finishing witbier. The dryness kind of negates the fruit and citrus sweetness. It is probably the driest wit I have ever tasted, makes it a very refreshing beer, but I wonder if a little more residual sweetness would make it an even better beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry, clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and a touch spicy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Murky gold with a short white head. Spice, yeast, wheat and light citrus in the aroma. Taste is wheat and soft spice up front followed by sweet malt, light citrus, dusty yeast and light candied fruit. Body is light-medium with a lively carbonation. Finishes with a touch more bitterness, yeast and wheat notes are still strong here as well. Lighter malt and fruit notes come through as does a softer spiciness and light bubblegum.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite a wheaty aroma with some lemon. This is surprisingly good at first. A bit wheaty, but the dryness battles the wheat in the aftertaste. Overall, the sample was enough for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak lemongrass and coriander nose. Cloudy amber, thin head. Grain and coriander. Finishes as it smells, with maybe a mintier thyme edge. Drinks fine, although it is grainier than I like in any wheat beer. Itís the Dortmunder of Belgian wits. If I didnít love wheat beers as much as I do, this would probably get a lower rating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington. Pour is a hazed yellow golden with a clean white head. Aroma is citrus floral yeast, honey, hay, and a pleasant lemongrass. Fragrant nose. The taste is the lemongrass citrus, with a more pronounced straw taste versus the nose and a pleasant earthy hay. Spice yeast lingers in the finish. Palate is medium bodied, with lower carbonation and the lingering straw honey lemongrass finish - quite dry. Nice enough, it worked well for the Bainbridge ferry crossing.

Finish is semi-dry with both citrus zest and yeast aftertaste.
