3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ the source on 24 April, 2014. Hazy gold in color with lasting head retention. Aroma is what you find in any Wit beer. Lemon and orange citrus, coriander and wheat.
Flavor matches the aroma with sweet fruits and Belgian yeast upfront leading to a lightly spicy coriander and pepper. Thankfully the spice is not over done. The body is in the medium range with a yeasty chewy texture. Some citrus zest or rind is in the finish to help cut the sweetness giving a pith like tartness. Overall pretty well made and was a refreshing finish to my meal.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours lightly cloudy, glwing gold with a mild, white head. Clove and banana aroma with some yeast. Flavor is lightly sweet with notes of yeast, booze, metal and fruit. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and some warmth. Finishes sweet with bread, fruit and a bit more metal. Not bad save for a few minor things.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden color, the head existed in distinct chunks on the beer (is that bad?). Aroma is fruity and spicey. The flavor is mild and subdued, but enjoyable. Lots of orange flavor, very fruity. Kind of reminds me of Oberon, but with Belgian spicing and yeast. Pretty good...even better as it warmed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Banana citrus and clove make up the aroma, with a bit of nectar and caramel. Flavor is quite citrusy with some sweeter malt and spice notes. Palate is smooth with an excellent body for the style, finishing semi-dry and crisp. Great example of a refreshing style.
