4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2008 (Bottled) Opaque golden with a medium, tight and white, lacy head. Neutral-dryish aroma with grapefruit, wheat and yeast, anise and other spices. Fruity, orange-lemony flavor with anise-spices, mild acidity, and wheaty sourness. Medium-bodied, refreshing palate with smooth carbonation. A crisp and refreshing, very enjoyable and characterful witbier.
(Draught@Kaisla, was 8-4-8-4-16=4.0) Very muddy, golden color with a big, pillowy, diminishing head. Very pleasant, yeasty aroma. Dry and bitter, yeasty flavor. Oily, dry, flat-carbonated palate. A very nice combination of a hefeweizen and an abbey beer.

Bottled. Grapefruit juice in color. Large rocky head. Speca and citrus aroma. High marks for smoothness, but low marks for lack of complexity in flavor. Light lemon finish. A good "wheat" if that is your thing.

Hazy, with thr best of heads. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Flavor is less pleasant and feels like old milk.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a moderate bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, coriander, and wheat. Flavor has orange, coriander, some honey, and some yeast. Light to medium body fits well, smooth. A nice wit.

Golden, hazy, and with the best of heads. I got the felling I could have turned the glass up side down, and still the head would have been there. Aroma is yeasty and fruity like a typical weissbier. Some vanilla in the flavor, but of course also yeast and fruit.

I suppose that this is well made beer; but it tastes just like all other well made Wits and I think that the style is boring. There is just not much going on with this style in general. My two cents. I like this brewery though.

Poured a cloudy yellow with a thin white head that didn't last. Mild scent of bananas on the nose, along with orange, vanilla, and spices. Orange and banana really come through on the tongue. This was a good witbier. One of the better ones I've had.

A nice white, with good aroma and flavor. Fairly light, but not lacking in flavor. Lacks some of the spiciness of some really quality whites, like Allagash.
