3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is of bananas, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. Also present are the requisite orange peel and coriander aromas. Color is a soft hazy peach. Flavor seems a bit empty compared to Vuuve and other Belgian Whites. SLight citrus taste up frong, bladn in the middle, and a smooth finish with a banana flavor over a coriander note. Palate and mouthfeel are average.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 Lost to Vuuve and Troublette in tonights tasting. Soft peach cloudy appearance. Medium head, dissipating quickly. Banana and pineapple and passion fruit aroma. Soft and subtle aroma compared to Vuuve. Mostly clove in the nose. Soft, medium flavor of bananas and cloves, subtler than others, but more bland at times. Silky tongue coating with no flavor in the finish.

Pours a very clouded dirty blond. Small white head. Nose is sweet but with a pleasant spiciness about it. Nice fruit hint in the nose as well. The taste is definitely a spicy citrus mix. There's a weird taste that I cannot figure out. Almost like a soap taste. It's not repulsive or unpleasant but more odd. Finishes very well with a lingering spice aftertaste. Good stuff.

More "yellow" than a Hoe. I detect a nice bananna aroma. The flavor is pretty complex for such a "lighter" brew. LOTS to offer here... Nice going!

hazy yellowish...typical wit color..excellent thick white head. very unusual aroma..lots of spice and some single malt scotch in there as well(smokiness of the 10 YR Aberlour). quite a lot of citrus in the flavor and maybe even a hint of the alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy light gold with a seltzerish head. It had an aroma of damp old books and lemons. Zesty on the tongue, with acidic lemon/lime flavors and some yeast. Dry finish. Different but not near as interesting as some of their other beers.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle conditioned)Cloudy pale yellow appearance. Bready, wheat & funky musty mummy spice aroma. Malty, moderately full chewy mouthfeel with coriander, musty earth, iron (thanks for helping put a finger on it DaSilky1!) subdued banana, tangerine, & sour tartness. Light bitterness allows slightly sour malt to dominate the lingering fruity finish. Pretty neat!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of yeast, citrus and spices. Quite Good. Looks like a typical witbier; Cloudy, yellow coloured. Good head. Taste was a surpise; very malty and sweet. Still spicy and fruity. Some honey. Refreshing palate. Different belgian white. Decent brew.
