0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
This is UNQUESTIONABLY, UNDOUBTEDLY, UNDENIABLY the most foul ’beer’ with which I have EVER had the misfortune and displeasure of crossing paths. I was first bludgeoned over the head by its bold, pungent TEQUILA aroma. Plain, translucent brown, I almost didn’t taste this. Fishman tasted it immediately before me and his reaction was so adverse that I would have been content to take his word for it. However, I eventually took a gulp and immediately regretted it, as it tastes quite disgusting, like a watered-down, carbonated tequila. I am going to have to change my ratings for Coor’s and Old English because they can not share the same rating as this...this IS the worst.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very aromatic and intensely flavored. A little ’sticky and sweet,’ but not enough to distract you from its other wonderful flavors and aromas. One of Smuttynose’s best, in my opinion. Not the greatest ’Belgian Wit’ I’ve had, but it’s definitely one of the best American-made Belgian Wits I’ve had! Cheers to Smuttynose.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had the classic Belgian white cloudy appearence, everything it should have been. This had a slightly more fruity aroma that I’m used to, and it carried through into the taste. Very mild aftertaste with citrus hints. A touch too sweet for the style, but I can see a lot of people potentially like this more than Allagash white. However, I feel that Allagash is more faithful to the style.
