4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Re-rate: Ok. The first one I had was a bad canning run. The brewery gave me a new and free six=pack to try a and itís a fantastic witbier. Itís reminiscent of Blue Moon, but just much fresher and better flavor. You can smell the coriander and orange peel as well as some other spices. It pours a somewhat cloudy golden orange color. I nice fluffy head with some lacing. Taste is fresh orange and coriander with some other cereal and spices. Goes down smooth and leaves a nice taste in your mouth. Definitely want to drink this nice Belgian white.
Original rating: Iím hoping I got a bad can of this, because it was mediocre and bordered on bad. Poured a pale yellow out of the can. No head whatsoever and no lacing. Almost no carbonation. Taste was like a muted version of a Belgian Wit but really no flavor to speak of and it smelled bland and maybe stale. I have liked all of their stuff so far, thatís why this poor beer took me by surprise. Might try again just to be sure, but other than a bad batch, this beer would be a big #Fail. I actually poured half of it out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at the Village Tap for their Local Tap Takeover. Served in an 8 oz. taster glass.
A: Pours a very hazy light straw color with a nice half finger white head that subsides in a light film ring.
S: Smells of subtle yeast and wheat with some nice pepper spice and citrus esters.
T: Typical bubblegum yeast with a spiced backbone. Some coriander and light pepper with a decent amount of citrus, but nothing to substantial.
M: While it went down nicely, there was absolutely no taste left on the palate. Itís as if I didnít even drink it. Very odd.
O: A decent witbier, but I would pass on it given another opportunity. The mouthfeel really did it in for me and the flavors were kind of muted.
Serving type: on-tap

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, and served to a large, house snifter at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL.. Displayed a hazed, light orangy straw color, with modest, off white head foam that quickly diminished to a ring & film, and left some light, wavy lacing on the glass. The nose was light yeast, fruitiness as lemon & orange, light sweetness, and spice as coriander. The body was light, the effervescence was lively, with the flavor also presenting a low hop bitterness and a fleeting hint of wheat cracker. A basically flavorful and sessionable Wit.

8/11/12. GTMW - from a can, I believe. Hazy golden orange pour with a nice off-white head. Big citrus and spice in the aroma with touches of tangy wheat, cream, and banana. Parallel flavor with emphasis on citrus and spice. Not bad.
