2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Triple Rock. I’m kind of a snob when it comes to Belgian witbier… don’t ask me why, it’s just a style I have an affinity to… anyway this one pours an orange color with a small white head. The aroma has some orange and wheat but not much else. Orange dominates. The flavor is super duper orangy (almost tart citric) with a fresh tasting wheat character and a VERY spicy finish. All in all, this wasn’t bad, just a bit out of balance and a bit one note on the orange…

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a fairly clear golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, lemon zest, coriander, clove, and some Belgian yeast.
T - Starts off with a mix of wheat and lemon zest with some coriander and clove. Through the middle, some more yeast character comes through with a bit more slightly tart lemon zest. The finish is a mix of wheat, lemon zest, Belgian yeast flavor, and some spices.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and lightly tart finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced witbier. Very crisp and refreshing with enough flavor to stay interesting.
