2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle from a sampler from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a murky orange color with a thin fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of citrus, floral notes, nutty notes and a spicy finish. The taste is VERY tart citrus, some apples. Overly tart. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Wasnít expecting that.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle. Appearance is a hazy copper with a white head of foam that diminishes quickly. Aroma is bubblegum with hints of orange and lemon. Taste is lemon on the front of the tongue leaving a pleasant tartness in the finish that fades to a bready yeast. Medium to light body and a quick and juicy finish. Easily quaffable beverage.

Strong aroma of orange, with a the lemon hiding underneath. Pours a hazy orange, with a big fluffy white head. A sweet and spicy flavor start this beer off, with the citrus coming out in the finish. A light beer thatís good on a hot day, but there are better witbiers out there.

2.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Note: I got this beer on tap during Brew Week in Athens, Ohio.
Pours hazy orange. Hits the nose with the aroma of roadkill cleaned up with a citrus cleaning agent. It has a medium to high sweet taste, and it feels like drinking lemonade. There are a lot of beers out there like this one but without the odor.

Draft at Deweyís in Dayton. Um, okay but missed high marks. The appearance and flavor were muddled and heavy on the orange citrus. A little spice and yeast but mostly the orange dominates. Ehh.

muddy orangish yellow, cloudy with a lime though, a little fizzy, but a nice mellow citrus summer drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12 ounce bottle of this in the cooler at the Party Source. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both average. The brew smells like orange peel, coriander, wheat and a bit of tart apple and vinegar which was a surprise. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, and the tart/vinegar flavor is still a bit noticable. I donít think this beer is supposed to have that tartness in both the flavor and aroma, but I think it actually works with this beer well. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it seems a bit thicker than most wits Iíve tried in the past. I liked this bottle, and I want to try this again soon.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2011 12oz bottle. Hazy yellow orange appearance, medium white head. Nice, citrusy spicy taste, crisp texture but perhaps a bit too carbonated. Very nice aroma, but mild in strength. Very refreshing overall, a great summer beer. Satisfying, indeed.
Rerate 11/24/11: kind of a weird sour taste.. Taste score moved from 7 to 5. Maybe this belgian wit is past itís prime.. Or just better in the summer with an orange, I donít know. Overall moved from 14 to 12. Still a decent zesty taste, I guess

Bottle from the brewery. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, and light herbal hops. Appearance was translucent gold with white head. Flavor matched the nose, but with an emphasis on fruity esters, and virtually no hop presence. Palate was bubbly. Good for the style, refreshing.
