Reviewed 12/28/2008 (Tap @ Santa Barbara Brewing Co.): Pours a cloudy light yellow colored body, with a tiny whitish head. Citrusy lemony taste. Banana taste with some spicy sweetness, some clove. Fruity spicy, citrusy light aroma. Somewhat watery palate, but carbonated. Light tasting.

Cloudy inside of a grapefruit color. Nice white head, mostly yeast with a little citrus aroma. Skunky background with a cheese presence also. Kinda has a sourness to the arom as it warms.

GABF 2003: Nose of old and wet hay and grass. No touch of coriander, which I expect in a witbier. Missing punch, citrus, and wheat flavors. Light and weak.

Light gold color. Small head. Aroma is citrus and orange. A light bodied Belgian wit. Malts are fruity and spicy. Hops are a touch spicy. Fine carbonation. Nice balance. Light and refreshing. A great beer for a warm summer evening. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Honey suckle with a little citrus rind in the nose.Yeasty gauzey mouthfeel, simple but solid flavors of perfume, dust and oak. Seemed a bit tame when up next to Hogarten.
