2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Hazy topaz with a large head that settles to a lasting disc. Aroma is citric acid, coriander, yeasty bread dough and crackers. Taste is way too much citrus peel for me, with some faint spicy bread showing in the aftertaste. It seems to be the tangerine peel that’s over the top. Near-medium body is balanced, with medium carbonation and finishes acidic-dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet caramel and lemon aromas. Soft with coriander and wheat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from spring variety pack. Pours hazy dark straw with off-white head that laces well. Nose is coriandery spice, lemongrassy hops, lime. Tastes rich, complex, with a pale malt and spicy flavor upfront and the lemon/lime kickiing in a fraction of a second later. Smooth and crisp, the only negative is that this one, like many other BBC beers, has that slight preservative twinge at the culmination that muddles things up a bit.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours hazy yellow/orange with a short-lives bright white head. Sharp citrus aromas with a subtle yeastiness and what I suppose is birds of paradise. Subtle malty sweetness with hints of hops and wheat. Light body, lively carbonation, smooth mouthfeel and a clean finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a milky gold with little to no head. Aroma of coriander, orange peal and spices. Taste follows, overly spiced and a bit under attenuated. Below average Belgian wit.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma was very perfumey with lots of orange and some wheat. Flavor was heavy on the orange peel and coriander. Rather unbalanced. Overly sweet too. Not unlike a Blue Moon.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle - pours hazy orange with white head and thin lacing nose is lemon peel and spicy (cloves?). flavor adds hay, orange and wheat. in a blind taste I probably wouldn’t be able to tell this apart from a Blue Moon.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
this beer has all the right quality of what a white ale should taste like, the problem is it seems to focus too much on the orange aspect and not enough of the beer, its a bit oversweet with flavor of coriander and orange peel. not really spicy but more fruity. still worth a drink though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is citrus/orange, spices and fruit. The flavor is spices, citrus, wheat and a tangy/mildly tart finish. Best Sam Adams Witbier.
