[On Tap, thanks Skyview!] Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is citrus, mainly orange, with coriander and yeast. Taste is about the same with a little bit of apple also in there. Medium mouthfeel with a long finish. A very nice wit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 [Rated 1.10.08 - bottle] Pours a hazy sunburst of orange and yellow with a medium white foamy head. Spicy malt, coriander and a touch of lemon in the aroma. Big wheat flavor, the spicies take a back seat, little lemon too. Crisp, refreshing carbonation. Not a hoegaarden. 188.8.131.52.16
[Rerate 4.29.09 - bottle] Pours a cloudy peachy color with fantastic thick meringue-like white head. Malty aroma, a bit soapy, coriander and lemon just as before. Really nice wheat flavor, sweet candied coriander, some citrus. Perhaps a bit too sweet and gritty. Quick finish. Medium bodied, slightly chewy for a wit, very crisp and refreshing finer soda carbonation. An excellent wit but just a little too sweet.

Bottle at Chaucer’s. Pours cloudy hazy yellow with a good frothed bleach white cap. The aroma is full of yeast and lactic components, which surprising. Lots of funk, some fruity esters, very yeasty, a touch of clove. The flavour profile is very tart citrus, some hints of banana, spices, but lots of funky sour yeast. Finishes creamy, in fact almost too creamy, with lots of funky yeast in the finish.

Poures a huge, fantastic foam! Silky, vanilla flavor with a hint of cherries jubilee. Tastes much better than it smells. I’d like fifty of them, please. Ok, the foam was because I poured really fast and I’m drunk

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light aroma of citrus and spice. Very hazy golden color with a significant white head that laced minimally. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is wheat, lemony citrus, and arguably coriander, which is sort of citrusy (terpenes). Also a bit of sharpish spice (pepper or clove?), very small bit. Really quite excellent. Finishes a bit acidic and dry.

Draft. Poured in appropriate glassware. Pours a hazy golden with a slight orange hue. Aroma of orange zest, lemon and coriander. Flavor is the same. Nice head retention and nice crisp dry finish. Enjoyable beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden with a loose head. The flavour has citric acidity, grapefruit peel, and a light honey sweetness. The bitterness is nice in the finish. It’s a wit bier and should as such have citric acidity, but I think this is a bit too much, at least for my liking.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours opaque yellow with a thin but cloudy white head and some yeast sediment. Aroma is strongly of lemon with a note of yeast. Flavor is nice and thick with a solid sour lemon flavor. Corriander is present from start to finish with little to no bitterness. Sour flavor lasts for a while on the tongue. If you like either Belgians or sours, make sure you give this a try.
