3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty mild malt and mild wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mellow herbal aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild lager mild wheat mild hops herbal and crisp. An OK brew just nothing special.

Bottle. Nose of wheat with cinnamon and tons of nutmeg, light citrus and grain. Hazy pour has the whole spectrum from yellow to orange and a creamy, dense eggshell head that laces. Oily, malty medium body with only light carbonation, a crackery resolves, and nice fruity and phenolic highlights to complement the orange and spices. Sweet with a little tang and less bitterness. The subtle cherry splashes here help nudge my impression to that of a holiday beer, but regardless this one’s just way too gaudy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/6/14
Aroma: The aroma of this one is full of wheat, lemon, and lots of spice
Appearance: The pour is a murky gold-orange, with a fizzy off-white head and drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of spice and lemon over wheat malt flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a lively-to-fizzy carbonation, and a spicy finish
Somehow I waited until May to pull this from the fridge. I wasn’t overly impressed by this beer. There’s too much carbonation and too much spice for it to be particularly drinkable, and the flavors are only alright.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks like I liked this more than most. Pours cloudy yellow / orange with a large soapy off-white head. The aroma has lots of spiciness (cinnamon jumps out most), orange peel, smooth wheat, powder and an overall dryness. Medium smooth body with fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts with a gentle spice blend (lots present, but it’s not harsh) balance by rich smooth wheat. The finish has light plasticy taste, but not too big. Large amount of nutmeg and cinnamon that lingers. Nice unique holiday beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a dark orange color with a tall white head. The aroma has some orange peel and light notes of baking spices. The flavor is the same. The body is a bit flabby for this style with a bit too much sweetness. The spices are well balanced though. Not a favorite, but a decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 4/16/2103. This Witbier pours a medium orange gold color from a 12 oz bottle. Medium to large sized white foamy head with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, spicy with orange, nutmeg and cinnamon. A medium to light bodied wit bier. The malts are cereal, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and sweet. Decent carbonation. The spices compliment and help offset the fruitiness and sweetness. Crisp and clean. Very drinkable. A somewhat different winter ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Get a faint orange in the aroma but mostly it’s wheat, from the first aroma to the last drop. A nice loft to it, but one is enough due to the heavy wheat body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy pale gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes to coat surface leaving no lacing. Cinnamon and sweet citrus aromas. Dry with sweet yeast and caramel upfront turning to cinnamon and nutmeg in the lasting earthy bitter finish.
