3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at AleFest Columbus (06/27/09): This beer is a hazy yellow-orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of grainy malt, brown sugar and citrus. Spices in the background too. The finish is coriander and yeast with a fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a small white head over a hazed deep amber body (in no way looks like a wit). Good retention. Aroma of banana, vanilla, alcohol, more alcohol, clove and CO2. Taste is alcohol (but for me in a sort of enjoyable way), clove, phenols, a rye like spiciness, light diacetyl, with a herbal finish. Light carbonation. A pretty good Boston Beer Company beer...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Strong banana, orange, coriander, cinnamon and bread aroma. Cloudy brown-yellow color with small head. Sweet banana malt initially followed by a strong spicy (clove, coriander, white pepper) flavor. One of the spiciest witbiers I’ve ever had.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured medium ambery-orange with a short, uniform cap of white head. The aroma was large and in charge with warm bananas, sticky cloves, and some sort of strong cleanser over a pale malt and honey base.. hot, hot, hot. The flavor had sticky caramel and banana sugars with some peppery and clovey spices around.. hot finish with residual sugars and alcohol.. didn’t come together well. Thick, cloying, and messy on the palate with sticky sweetness laced with intense alcohol all over the place.. any semblance of subtlety was promptly defenestrated, and this was hard to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber golden with a small, frothy white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity malt and some mild coriander spice with a touch of European hops. Body starts with good fullness and rich sweet malty character which overshadows most of the orange rind and coriander before a slightly drier finish. Needs more spice character to be more of a witbier, but still a pretty interesting and drinkable beer, which hides its alcohol well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 Pours hazy copper with gold edges and brief white head. Interesting aroma. I get a thick malt infused wheat note along with what seems like rosemary, coriander and a sense of ginger to go along with vague sweet fruit like maybe banana and ripe cherry. The taste begins sweet with ripe cherries, plums, ripe red apples, raisins and blueberries and coriander. It gets more cherry and plum sugar sweet midway and to the finish to go along with a sense of wheat in the background.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Wheat, yeast, and spice aroma. Wheat/malt flavor with light citrus and yeast. Medium-plus bodied. Malt and yeast lingers with light spice. It turns a bit to a plastic flavor.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml bottle. Finland.
Hazy orange colour with small white head.
Aroma is not fresh. Malt, wheat, alcohol and some spices. Maybe some citrus in aroma.
Flavour is spices, sweet malt/wheat and alcohol. Strong alcohol makes this rich and heavy but it really lacks freshness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark orange, brief golden head. Aroma and flavour are much like a euro strong lager or imp pilsener with added notes of orange and spices. Finish is very warming with nearly no bitterness. Quite sweet. Not my favorite.
