2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured a hazy yellow hue w/ a quickly diminishing fizzy white head and only a hint of lacing. Mild aroma of fresh dough, orange peel, and coriander. Initial flavor is a light sweet with almost no bitter in the finish. Taste is bready, with sweet orange and tangerine, and some yeast. Light bodied, lively carbonation, watery mouthfeel and a faint dry finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Translucent, dark straw color. Small head, small-medium bubbles. Citrus-y aroma, nothing bad in it, pretty good. The taste notes are citrus fruit, medium-bitter, somewhat spicy, medium-sour, little sweet, average body. I’m not a huge fan, but pretty well brewed. Not a terrible beer, but not a worthy belgian white.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of their Spring Thaw 2013 mixed pack bought in Montpelier, VT. Hazy golden colour with a warm cap and small lace. Orange and light spices aromas. Even hints of maple. Refreshing mouthfeel. Orange taste with some mild coriander. Grain comes out in the aftertaste with honey notes. A different witbier that is interesting.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy orange with short-lived head that disappears and leaves little to no lacing. Aroma is a little orange rind and some unappealing funky yeast. Taste is a less bad with more hints of citrus, and a soft bite of carbonation. Palate is not bad, but overall this just isn’t appealing enough to enjoy.

From bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with nice head that lingered. Aroma was similar to a blue moon with sweet orange, spices and a little lemon. Taste followed and added a little yeast and more sweetness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 4/20/13. This Belgian Witbier pours a somewhat cloudy medium orange color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, wheaty and sweet, with tangerine, orange and coriander. A medium bodied Witbier. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy. Fairly lively carbonation. Nice balance of flavors, spicy, fruity and sweet. It’s a little sweet overall, but the spices somewhat counter act the sweetness, especially the pepper at the finish. It would make a nice summer session ale on a hot summer afternoon. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of Boston Beer. Thanks! Pours a hazy, peach-juice color; fine-bubbled off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma also has a peachy/citrus quality to it, on the sweet side, with a mellow spice character that matches up seamlessly; would prefer more wheat-y dryness and less fruit. Medium to medium-high body, medium-high CO2, and a fair amount of sweetness throughout: again, peachy and tangerine notes, though more of a juicy presence than pith, and more mouth-filling coriander than a dry peppery spice; overly sweet and fruit-forward. While not necessarily "coriander soup," as the critique often goes elsewhere, but too sweet for my tastes.

Cloudy yellowish orange. Orange tangerines and great corriander flavor. Much better than expected. A touch of pepper flavor from the grains of paradise. One of my favorite wits to date.
