4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Local 1675 Tulip
It ours a very cloudy with a hazy orange and a two finger white head. Big trails of lacing remain on the glass.
Smells like orange and lemon along with lots of spices.
Taste follows nose with citrus being more dominant over the spices. Lemon, oranges, spices.
It has a medium body and high carbonation.
Overall not a typical witbier.... more of a citrus take
These guys keep rolling out great beer after great beer after great beer
I got $20 in my pocket! Gonna go get some more!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. This beer pours a dirty orange color with almost no head. Aroma of wit spice, pinapple, mango, coriander and orange peel. Flavor is very fruity, mild sweetness, light tartness imparted by mango and citrus notes. Nice, refreshing, and certainly more flavor than the average wit. The body is medium, slick. Solid, flavorful wit.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy straw yellow. Notes of citrus a spice. The citrus gives way to a medium bodied spice that invokes notes of white pepper. Yeast flavors show a dominance. Nice flavorful finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy milky yellow with a white head. Nice spicy aroma. Lots of that lemon corriander with some bubblegum Belgian yeast. Some earthy and sweet undertones as well. Fruity bubblegum red fruit and grapefruit flavors. I really like the yeast esters with a strong bitterness from grapefruit and pine. The spices seemed too much at first but my palate adjusted since they are not too overbearing halfway through a glass. Iíd like less of the spice, but it works. Tasty.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle served in a FFF teku glass. Batch #38.
A: Pours a dirty orange color with fluffy white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film that leaves some sticky sheets of lace down the glass.
S: Definite sweet yeast presence with nice citrus backing. Some toasted grains with a little orange as well.
T: The taste follows the nose. Some sweet yeast, a little chalky, but nice smooth citrus notes as well. Some light peppery notes with a little lemon peel.
M: Medium to light bodied with nice medium high carbonation. The body has a little more weight to it than a normal wit, but itís still very drinkable.
O: A very solid wit. Iím sold on the addition spices added as it gave the beer a light kick that made the drink a lot more enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle served in Pipeworks snifter: Hazy golden hue with a nice frothy head which left very nice lacework upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of blood orange, mango, lime leaves, coriander, lavender, grains of paradise, wheat husk, pils, touch of caramel and aromatic malts with a touch of bubblegummy Belgian yeast esters. The taste is a combination of acidic fruits, sweet fruits, crisp malts, and the ever present Belgian yeast characteristics. A dash of alcohol and peppery spices clean up the palate except for the lasting juicy fruit twang. The mouth feel is lively enough and has some bite but I prefer my Witbiers to be a bit more refreshing and bright. The mouth feel is slightly heavier than is the norm for the genre. Overall a nice beer but something I much rather drink during the spring and summer months (much like the Berliner Weisse). I will buy again methinks even if the fruity components comes off more like tangerine and blood orange than mangoes on the palate. (I do not mind in the least bit)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle purchased at a local store, most likely wlv...pours a mostly cloudy and muddled orange brown hue, predominantly non-transparent, and topped with a thin to medium vivid white head that sticks around for a duration... notes of banana and yeasty esthers in the aroma, a touch of dried fruit, slightly spicy with some added firm breadiness. orange and citrus notes without any realdistinguishable mango which was expected and foretold... full creamy bodied consistency throughout in the flavor with the aforementioned aroma profile following through. sweet upfront but a light but noticeable tangines develops 3/4s of the way through and holds on into the finish. carbonation adds some tingly liveliness. a bit bigger than expected but this was pretty nice, despite not being a big fan of the style itself.
