2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from state line - pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma has the orange and nutmeg, but I’m not getting a ton of cinnamon. Leans sweet and dry. Overall, solid, but I wished they’d punched up the spices more to give it more complexity and interest.

Bottle from state line liquors. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Not a lot on the nose except a faint orange. I’m getting the orange peel but not much if the nutmeg or cinnamon. Lingers a bit of orange. Typical wit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden yellow color with a super thin white top that dissipated seconds after pouring. Taste of spice, coriander, citrus, lemon peel, nutmeg, and maybe a slight bit of cinnamon. Overall this isn’t a good representation of the witbier style, but I still enjoyed it. Slightly above average brew.

Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Aroma has a touch of spice and a touch of citrus...very subtle and faint aroma. Flavor has cinnamon and nutmeg...a bit muddled but seasonal spices and not overly bold. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with an orange/cinnamon dry spicy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Lemon and citrus peels, grain and wheat. Medium bodied, a touch of sweet lemongrass, a bit of spices. Lemony, almost shandy like. A bit sweet, easy drinking and tasty enough. Better than the regular Sam’s summer.
