3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with little to no head. Aroma of hops, grains and some citrus... maybe orange? Flavor is the same, but has some spicy grittiness to it... you know like what you find when you add too much pepper to a bloody mary and you get pepper chunks in the sip. Might be better with an orange stuffed into it, interesting brew, but I’d rather drink a Blue Moon.

12 oz bottle. Pours bright amber, but slightly cloudy. Head is very thin and is gone in a flash. Slight hint of orange in the aroma. Coriander too. Flavor is the same, but, nutmeg, I think. Some spice. Not bad.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with JK, thanks John!) Ooh, wow, this is really grainy, almost husky for a witbier, so to me, it comes off more as a blond ale with a dash of spices. Lightly sweet and minimally bitter thoughout, but the meek spices fade the slowest, so they can actually be detected in the finish. But really, there’s just not much here. Grainy, slightly sour nose, but shows almost no similarity to a witbier. Light bodied, almost watery, with average carbonation and a short-lived finish. Pale yellow and very slightly hazy, small particles are suspended in the beer. The white head is pretty average across the board, rising to half an inch, settling to a ring, leaving some patchy lacing near the top of the glass. Boring, thin flavored, and too closely resembling a golden ale for my tastes.

Bottle. Poured a clear amber with an average creamy white head that diminished slowly. Average sweet wheat aroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture. Light sweet bitter flavor with a short finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very pale golden with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma has a nice, subtle touch of coriander and orange zest with some mild noble hoppiness. Body starts semi-sweet revealing a pleasant spice balance before a smooth, crisp, and dry finish. A little thin, but very drinkable and fairly well balanced.

a dull golden color that is semi transparent. I got a citrus vibe from the aroma. not bad, it has a full body to it as i thought it would be light. a get a bit of garbage funk in the aroma as time goes on.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very light yellow with a hint of dullness, little head. Not a bad aroma, hoppy notes present as dryness, some alcohol, some coriander up front, wheaty, but not terribly strong. Orange in the flavor suggests watered down Southern Comfort, but not especially sweet. Rather thin in flavor and not a wonderful palate--strikes me as going a little flat rather quickly.

Poured a light yellowish color with not much head or lacing. Aroma was sweetwith some strange spice smell that actually worked for me. Taste was disappointing after the aroma.

This beer had a light color. I did not care for the aftertaste. I almost tasted a bit like Skoal.
