2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow colour. Some coriander and marshmallow aroma, alongside grainy notes, oatcakes and honey. Palate is light, slightly honeyish, sweet, with hints of coriander and a very light yeast presence.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2004 Had all the good qualities of a belgian witbier, but just isn't my favorite in the style. Still, it's a great showing. Poured a wonderful hazy pale yellow (hazy is very important to me in a wheat), thine white head. smells likecitrus fruit, a bit acidic. Flavor is much like banana bread, which is typical of the style. Palate is a bit on the thin side. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. It's a pretty tasty Wisconsin version of a Belgian biere. Appearance is yellow-white. Good wheaty head, and a pleasant coriander spicy bite, with clove just beneath. If they had a rating for “value,” this one would get a “10,” since I found it for $6 a sixer in Wisconsin.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
What can I say concerning the color of this brew that hasn't already been said? Has a really fresh aroma and I can smell the coriander and orange. Fluffy head that dissipated rapidly, but with some lacing all the way down. Flavor is delicately spicy and slightly sour, with a light dryish finish, and I want another one.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky pear juice. Creamy layer of retentive white bubbles. Zesty orange, slightly musty aroma with underlying coriander, dough, melon, white grape, bubblegum, phenolic yeast traits, and a whisper of piney hop. Round, softly prickly carbonation. Filmy, yeasty palate. Starts with light pepper flares and faint coconut. Lightly metallic, earthy, lemon flavors abound underneath the inital coconut flares and faint coconut and cane sugar. Doughy, phenolic hop belches. The pepper, yeast, and citric notes are wonderfully balanced in the aroma. The finish is also nice, with subtle acidity and light pale maltiness. More malt emphasis in the middle would have added proper depth. The phenolic yeast traits complement the lightly phenolic Saaz with perfection.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy light pale yellow color, grain and citrus aromas, small white foamy head that clings to the sides of the glass. Dry wheat and mild orange flavors, light body with a watery mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry, not all that bad and somewhat refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 Very pale, almost white. Aroma of citrus fruit and cloves. Standard aroma and flavor of other Belgian whites, but both of these qualities are understated in this beer. Thin on the palate. Not as good as Blue Moon, and certainly not as good as Hoegaarden or Wittekerke, but it was also very inexpensive. Not a bad beer.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Really really pale. Like piss when one is very hydrated, or a watered down unfiltered wheat. The previous sentence is the most creative I can come up with for this overpriced brew. Didn't taste like much...where were the promising spices of orange and coriander? ARGGH!
