4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Floyds’, 12/11/04. Hmm... that’s what a fresh wit is supposed to taste like. My first thought was "Well Wheated!" A thin, lacy head, cloudy yellow body. Full of lemon, orange and some pineapple (from the hops?) flavor. Very light on the wit-type spiciness. Comes across more grassy than bitter. A wonderfully balanced beer.

A bigger adn a bit bolder malt presence than in most wits. Good though with a slight hop tang.

tap at brewery-dec 30,2004. pours a cloudy yellow hue with a slightly off-white head. big corriander aroma with a variety of spices. very aromatic and true to the style. AWESOME lacing, even in the stupid plastic cup they serve in. NIce noble hop bite in the finish. I expected a three floyds twist with some citric hop notes, but that was not the case. As it warmed, the lemongrass notes came through much better. I really like the fact that Three floyds kept this beer to style but i was also kinda wanting a "its not normal" twist on it. I would LOVE to have a keg of this in my apartment.

Orangey-goldenrod, totally opaque with tiny bubbles rising at the the top producing a white, tight head. As it disappears to my beautiful beerbelly, I notice that this beer laces in strong sticky sheets. First pour at the gathering was into plastic pint glasses and it even laced nicely onto those! Dry seedy spices in the nose with hints of citrus and brown, dried grass. Light bodied, almost fluffy with nice spicy touches and solid wheaty body. Dry spices and grass at the finish is tickled with tangerine and orange zest flavors. Thanks to Nick, John, Jim and crew for sharing their latest creation!!!

Thanks to all those at 3FFF for bringing this by Joes’ Party! Cloudy orangy hue with a small head but great lace. The aroma has notes of caramom, clove, floral and grassy hops, lemon, and yeast. The taste starts wheaty and yeasty with a mild and interesting fruity undertone. Sublime spice and a touch of pale malt on the finish. The feel is lively and agressive, refreshing and clean. A good witbier with the expected Three Floyds twist.

On tap at the brewpub
Pours a murky muted yellow with a big white head.
The orange peal seemed to be upfront in the nose, with a pinch of corriander in the background.
Just the opposite for the flavor. Corriander and peppery phenolics are featured in a very spicy drink.
Soft palate. Medium body. High carbonation. Dry finish.
I really enjoyed the pepper in this beer.

Had on tap at FFF. Poured to a straw color with medium thick white had that lingered well and left okay lacing. Aroma was a pleasant mix of clove, oranges, lemons and cookie dough. Mouthfeel of this medium-bodied, well balanced beer leaned a little to the hoppy bitter side, but offset by sweet malt asa well. Flavor was spicy fruit and cookie dough, and the finish pleasant.
This is promoted by FFF as a Winter brew, due no doubt to the spices, but at only 4.7%, and with the fruit flavor, it would make a decent summer beer as well.

This draft brew from the brew pub poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy uncarbonated yellow-white colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma was hoppy floral malty and spicy. The semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops and floral. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.
