Pours cloudy yellow, quickly dissipating white head. Nose is banana, clove, bubble gum. Taste is lemon, banana, coriander. Yeasty tang on the palate, a bit light/watery. Very nice, true to style. Poor man’s allagash white.

22 fl oz bottle, bought at a Whole Food in Camarillo, CA. Unclear pale yellow like lemonade, small white head. Coriander and hop on the nose, little bit moldy. Taste has some typical belgian yeast and wheat, low hop in the background. Decent citrus sweetness. Little bit pale malt in the aftertaste. Flat one of its kind.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pale straw colored pour with a white head that recedes quickly. Aroma of bubble gum, banana,clove, coriander. Typical witbier aroma. Flavor is slightly vegetal, but also contains the typical witbier banana, coriander flavor. Slightly watery. I hold Hoegaarden as the standard for the style, and though this beer is good, I feel that it is not as good as Hoegaarden.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Silver can at The New Penguin courtesy of Cousin Matt. Pale and opaque with a fast-dying head. Slightly meaty big bag of perfumed coriander aroma. Inoffensive slightly peppery Hoegaarden clone all coriander and pot pourri orange plus a trace of bitterness to finish. Swedish spiced biscuits and clove in the blender. Simplistic but slipping down just fine.

On tap at Gott’s in Palo Alto, CA. Aroma is light fruit, citrus, mild floral, some spicy yeasts. Taste is the same...a mild and refreshing witbier (which is what I personally want from a witbier).
