2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from bottle. Smells like orange juice and pancakes. Orange amber with absolutely no head. I taste the wheat and ginger, as well as orange soda notes with maybe a spice or two. I also see that this beer is over a year old. Gotta give this a low rating, will try a fresher sample in future.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours an opaque pale yellow with small white head. Aroma of banana bread. Flavor is smooth and sweet. A fairly simple beer, but it tastes good and is easy to drink. It’s not bad at all, but when compared to some of the better Belgian wits out their, it falls a bit short.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Something is just not right with this Belgian Witbier, unfortunately. Still, I can’t help but be charmed by the darling little bottle that all Red Hook beers come in.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours a nice hazy orangeish yellow with a thin soapy white head, aroma is yeasty and clove, maybe a little pepper, i get ginger too but not sure If I would have picked up on it for the description above. The taste is strong ginger, yeasty, I wish there was less ginger actually, and more lemon or something else. Body is medium, carbonation is medium. I liked this beer, not as good as Blue Moon, but have had worse.
