3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 11-04-2013 (Bottle) This beer pours a large white head that mostly diminished, hazy pale yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is wheat malt, orange, semi-sweet, spicy, and coriander. The Taste is sweet, orange, wheat malt, tangy, and lightly spicy. The Palate is smooth and this is a light bodied beer. Overall, this is a refreshing beer and can be considered a session beer. A beer I would consider drinking again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of foamy very off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-hazy dark yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was citrus and coriander. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering sweet aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of chamomile citrus fruity and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It appears that somebody likes this, or at least, it isn’t at the bottom of the style. But although I found a few decent notes in the front end, the mid and late finish tends to hollow out. A little spice, a very slight sweetness. Somewhat drinkable but not especially enjoyable. Bottle.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
12oz bottle pours with a fairly opaque gold body that supports a wafer thin bright white head. The mild aroma has sugar sweetness, pear candy, sugar sweetened spices and then a light sweet citrusy lime candy note. The taste unloads mounds of sugary sweetness that is a mix of table sugar, sweet pear juice, sugary green apple and lime hard candy. Beneath the sweetness are mild spices like clove and sugary coriander as well as there’s more sweet pear and apple notes. Way too sweet and sugary. I will not try this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Smells mildly sweet, pours thick copper with a medium head. Spice is mild, has a citrus flavor. Medium to high carbonation. Enjoyable, and good, but not quite great.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 I am surprised by the low ratings. This beer is quite good for a wit with spice. Pours a cloudy light gold with a fair head that has low lacing that dissipates quickly. Not much nose, but there is slight floral sweetness present. Balance is outstanding with a stylistic mouthfeel. It finishes with a burst of spice, as intended, with no hop bitterness aftertaste. This a very good summer ale - quite drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Cloudy, unfiltered looking pale yellow with a frothy light head like the way I prefer my Wits. The aroma does have a dough-like, lemon/orange citrus note, and pale malts upfront but there is also something kind of musty about it. The body is light to medium. The taste is better than the aroma suggests it would be. A good spicy and citrus flavor with a mildly lingering finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours mostly clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Lots of orange, dough and wheat and coriander in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with slightly sugary bready malts, spices, orange peel, coriander. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with just the faintest licks of bitterness, lots more bread, lightly toasted sugars, wheat, spices and citrus. Straight-ahead stuff. Not much nuance but easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy bright straw color with a one finger frothy white head with good retention. Aromas of bright citrus notes, soft esters and a light wheat malt. Taste starts off wheaty and fruity with orange peel and citrus, then goes into the spices which last into the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong lemon flavor with yeast and malt, banana, spice (light), then a very long and lingering finish. A bit unnatural. Not my favorite example of the style.
