0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
I don’t drink witbiers. I have never gotten along with them. They aren’t my style of beer. The only reason I even tasted this beer was because it came in the sampler case I purchased. I think it would be a disservice to the beer and the brewer if I made any comments about it. It’s their fault I don’t care for the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz into a glass. Pours a hazy orange. Head is light and fluffy and maintains. Taste is funky orange with some slight rye, but not to overbearing or extreme, like a very light rye. a splash of rye if you would. Seems to be too much going on within this one, like the brew is not quite sure where it wants to go. That brings a muddle taste to the offering and confuses the pallate. Orange spice is prevalant, as is corriander and nutmeg. But, this selection does go finely with the summer mix pack and the heat wave felt in the northeast recently. get down on it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, another witbier from Sam Adams, this has to be some kind of record! -Pours hazy golden with a one finger head that starts to fizz away but still leaves a nice ice cream looking head, halfway through there is just a thin ring. Aroma is strong in citrus, coriander, ginger. The taste is citrusy, orange, the rye is really there, bready spiciness, sage too. Interesting beer, good.

Good beer. A great alternative to a hefe. Refreshing and light, but with a dry finish. The white thin head and lacing. You can smell the rye in the aroma. Good session drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has the peppery wheat aroma of a Belgian white, but with an additional, more peppery rye malt.
Sweaty yellow color with a decent head. Looks very "wet," clear and not very cloudy.
The flavor has spicy coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise, pepper and just a hint of that dry rye. The spices all coagulate into one very spicy, very pleasant flavor that adds a little prickly-ness to a sweeter style.
Has a slick feel with just a hint of fizz. This is a nice little beer; I’m surprised/impressed.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Frank Smith’s. Pours hazy orange with a nice size off white head, some lacing. The aroma is loaded with spices.. citrus zest, coriander, almost some italian seasoning. The taste is very spiced as well and is way outside the Wit style.. but I kind of dig this.. almost like a summer beer for a pulled pork sandwich.

Yellow pour with a white head. Aroma of piney pungent rye. The taste of sweet is mixed nicely with spice and hops. Not bad.

Hazy and golden with not so good head retention. Good balance of sage and malt in the aroma. Rye on the palate backed by a decent hop flavor and earthy notes.Finishes nice with lingering hops and sage, not too overpowering. Very low bitterness from the hops. Super awesome.
