Bottle. Light golden orange pour that is slightly murky. Small white head. This is a little bland overall - the citrus and spice character is somewhat muted and muddled together.

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. Itís 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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - 12 oz bottle - part of their íSpring Thaw" variety pak, Murky light orange pour, soft white, beady head, dissipates quickly. Lemony aroma with some saffron-like spiciness. Flavor has some lemony accents, some yeasty notes, a hint of banana. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent enough.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). This ended up in one slot of my Noble Pils sixer. Iím a little upset about it. So I guess Iíll rate it. Pours a dulled hazy golden orange hue, firmer haze in the body, brighter golden edges with a small frothy offwhite head. Stays as a decent layer, laces small. Lively carbonation, a bit darker in the body almost amber. Aromas are firmer strong coriander, flaked wheat, bit of suntan lotion. Mellow orange rind and fruit grows, dough, some estery fruit. Bigger coriander presence than I generally like, a little sweet. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a bit of jump in the middle. Some fuzzy dry carbonation hits the palate into the middle. Front end is a bit soapy, floral, gentle citrusy orange and fruit. Middle is a bit bland, doughy, and fruity. Some gentle dryness at times, mellow carbonation. Backend shows some sweeter bread, wheat, and dough. A bit grainy, with gentle florals and soap. Backend is a bit bland, orange oils are subtle with lingering earth, gentle yeastiness, and lingering coriander coolness. A bit odd. The nose felt like a coriander bomb but the beer itself was a bit more enjoyable, a bit dry, if a bit flabby at times. Ok. Not really my choice for a Wit though.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From the Spring 2013 sampler pack. The body is a hazy deep amber orange with a bright white head. The nose has some nice bright oranges. There is is also a hint of clove and raw dough. The body is highly carbonated with a chewy feeling. This tastes like raw dough with an orange hint at the finish. There is also a hint of clove spice and tobacco in the finish. The aftertaste is just orange peel and gross abc gum.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy gold with a medium, dense white head. Aroma is spicy with lots of citrus zest, orange and grains. Taste is mostly sweet with soft lemon candy, candied orange, wheat notes yeast and light spices. Body is medium with a dense, prickly carbonation. Ends with more spices, sweet malt notes, grains, yeast and candied citrus fruit. Not bad.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the "Spring Thaw" mix pack. Cloudy orange, decent white head. Pretty typical for the style, I guess. Some yeasty notes, some wheaty notes, some spicy notes. Perhaps a tad overbearing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, from Party Source. Enjoy by August 2013. Mildly hazy golden - orange color. Thin off white bubbly head, fades to minimal. Just little loose dots of lace. Doesnít look bad, but much darker than most white ales Iíve seen. Orange peel, some spice, light belgian-type yeast. Moderate strength more smooth carbonation, medium body. Lightly dry, light stickiness. Tangy sweetness. Decent witbier.
