2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 What the hell is with this beer? A sweet mess. Pours an apricot/light brown color wtih a white head. Aroma is full of banana, spices, malt, honey, sugar and oranges. The flavor is pretty insane on the sweetness. I was not impressed. Lots of sugar, honey, syrup, dried fruit. I need to try this again in a regular beer setting instead of a crazy beer fest. Interesting but way too sweet.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy light orange-brown body with a light creamy head. Big orange and coriander scents in the wheat-like nose. Very refreshing and intriguing aroma. Somewhat thicker and slightly darker body than a typical Witbier. One of the stronger orange peel flavors that I’ve encountered with an also noteworthy coriander flavor. Some great flavor but somewhat strong booze flavor, especially on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, frothy, white head that collapses upon itself until it becomes a permanent, creamy cap. The nose is quite subtle, but does provide notes of vanilla, ethanol and some odd, herbal fragrances. Full-bodied and very creamy with soft carbonation. Mainly, the flavor and finish are sweet and just a touch boozy/warming – there’s a little vanilla and toffee. I didn’t really pick up any of the common wit esters or phenols, but I don’t tend to enjoy them anyway.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a slight hazy (very slight) orange copper color. Medium head with fair head retention and small flecks of lacing. Aroma is a fruit basket.... pineapple, peach, banana, grape and pear. Also some bready and caramel notes. Taste is pineapple, orange and banana juice. Seriously fruity. Also some bread, anise, coriander and caramel. Full bodied. Very interesting.

Better than your verage wheat beer. Sweetish aromas. Pours creamy head, and creamy above-average thick mouthfeel. Carbonation greater than average. Satisfying and drinkable. Some orange, spices.
