A nearly perfect Belgian White. The smell and taste are of particular note.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Strong aroma is yeasty with fruity and butterscotch notes and just a hint of - soap? Floral? Rather tempting whatever! It pours a clear solar yellow with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent white head. Yeasty flavor has fruity and floral notes, the former mainly pear, and hints of malt, butterscotch and herbs or grass. Ah, it has spices? They are a bit on the subtle side, then, unless that is the source of the herbal note. Texture is smooth with above-average body and just a little fizziness plus some soapy slipperiness. Overall, very satisfying.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bronze glow with a lacy head. Piquant nose redolent with Pacific Northwest scents...salmon, ginger, grains of paradise, zesty and vivacious. Heaven-scent smells. Musky wheaty body boosted with coriander and ginger and alligator pepper/grains of paradise. An exquisite, refreshing, flavorful, and deliciously complex wit. Truly a best in class candidate for the style. No contest, this should claim perennial seasonal status, a truly superior example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Caskfest. Hazy gold pour with a large white head. Has a slightly tart orange creamsicle aroma with coriander spiciness. This is a pretty nice little wit: citrusy orange flavor, light vanilla notes, coriander, light toasty wheat. Refreshing and tasty.

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. There’s some pale malt underneath along with a prominent yeast/bread character and lots of sweet citrus rind. Very flavorful, refreshing and easy to drink.

Just excellent for a lower abv beer. Taste is dry, featuring summer fruit and some spice. Much better than one would expect. I would definitley drink this one again.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really interesting tangy, earthy aroma with a definite barnyard element that I wasn’t expecting. Hazy medium yellow with a thin but persistent white head. Honey, coriander (and maybe ginger) and lemon pop out with some of that barnyard sourness in the back but much lighter than expected from the aroma. Leaves a light dry bitterness in the aftertaste which is the only evidence of hops at all. A light refreshing summer beer with really interesting and intense components that set it apart from the other easier drinking summer beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle - $4.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Slips out a clear, golden-hued body with a plentifully-sized, sudsy, white head.
Smell: A by no means gushing base maltiness in the nose, smelling lightly of crisped wheat spread over by a single sugar packet. A little note of lemonade and orange juice. The nose offers up slightly spicy, gently floral elements here and there.
Taste: Light touches of pale malted barley and wheat with a soft sweetness and hint of grain, yielding an accent of graham cracker. More light qualities of lemony hops along with a hint of orange. Lightly bitter, though still fairly substantial for a wit. Soft floral qualities, delivering just a teensy bit of lavender very late in the taste. Earthy, passably spicy coriander seed flavor. Finishes reasonably dry and fairly clean, though a smidge of spice does linger.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: An above-average wit, I say! A sufficient, satisfying summertime refresher on a muggy, miserable Georgia day in July.
