Sampled from a 22oz bottle, summer of 2013. Great aroma with adequate flavors, but probably would not seek out again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky amber with a 1/4" highly carbonated white head that dissipates in a few seconds. Aroma is sweet malts, with some orange and spice. Quite a bit of alcohol. The taste is sweet malty caramel with lots of coriander and some bready notes. The finish has a lingering bitter orange antiseptic booziness. My mouth actually feels a bit numb. For the amount of carbonation in the pour, the mouthfeel is a flat. Pretty heavy and syrupy sweet that makes my lips sticky. The prevalence of alcohol definitely makes this one a sipper and would be much more enjoyable on a cool fall/winter night as opposed to a hot summer night. Special thanks to the Durke’s for sharing this with me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy brown with a thin white head. Very heavy, sweet malt aroma with a floral note. Flavor is full on sweet. Almost overpoweringly so. Fruity with a slight heather ale taste. Clean and crisp but a little too heavy to be refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, dark, orange, amber pour, with medium viscosity. The off-white-to-tan creamy head settled in at about 2 inches. The nose provides ample evidence of wheat, with citrus, and spicy notes. The nose leans toward power and I expect a hefty brew. There is almost a medicinal note? The palate is rich, enveloping, warm, and lingering. The alcohol is evident. This is not a summer session wheat ale! The Belgian lace is well-developed, leaving clear rings as I sip, although after a few minutes the head is gone. Malty, fruity, less citrus than expected and more coriander with hints of mace and vanilla on the palate. Long, pleasant lingering. I’ll try this again as the weather cools.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky orange in appearance. Minimal head. Aroma of Hallertau hops and spices. Taste is very malty and sweet with a big full-bodied mouthfeel. Syrupy texture and a long, tart finish. Bitterness is derived from spices more than the Hallertau Mittelfreuh hops. Flavors of orange peel and coriander are able to shine through the overwhelming malt sweetness and alcohol heaviness. More flavors are lemon zest, banana, ginger and honey. Grains of paradise and a lot of wheaty undertones. A satisfying and quaffable drink for what it is, but overly sweet. The upside is a potent beverage with a veritable avalanche of malt. It might just be the strongest witbier you’ll ever try.

Poured orange and slightly hazy. Smelled slightly sour and sweet with spice. Flavor was spicey with orange and sweet and smooth. I really liked it regardless of its lower rating.
