3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
tap at the brewpub - Pours hazy straw colored with some good lacing. Ginger and orange dominate the aroma. The flavor is sweet and spicy. It’s light bodied, bubbly, and a bit watery. Okay beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at IBGF 2009.
Poured hazy dark yellow color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy citrus sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration.
My expectations where met.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the restaurant. My wife’s favorite. Cloudy yellow with white head. Taste of citrus and spices. Nice pleasant finish that doesn’t overpower the senses.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clouded dark yellow with a hue of orange. Has a lasting white head. Light floral nose that does not reveal much. Orange peel is very evident at the first sip. Lemony coriander comes out lightly. A nice quencher after a bit of a drive with some insane motorists. The finish is the only detractor, to dry for me and leaves a papery taste with the spices that doesn’t mix well. Still, that is not enough to make the beer unpleasant. I’d take another, and I just might order it now.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Draft: Toasted tangerine. Silky covering of dusty-white foam. Unique aroma of mint, papaya, and peach. Touch of phenols and mustiness underneath. Soft, mellow carbonation. Flavor parallels the aroma with an outburst of succulent papaya and mango alongside a scratchy yeast backbone. Well-placed coriander and bitter orange peels. Soothing airiness abates the subtle sweetness. Exceptionally bright, throughout, with tangy wheat, vanilla, and freshly cut ginger continually adding to the array of subtleties. Vague bubblegum yeast note deepens the sugared malt grit. Flowery, coriander backdrop kissed with toasted malt hulls. Understated coriander dwindles, as it finishes perpetually juicy and fruity, with scratchy yeast and dried herbs coarsening the smooth body. Unorthodox almost every way you look at it, and what I’d imagine a Gruit-Wit to resemble, if such a style existed, as the hops are replaced by a profusion of tropical fruity esters and herbal flavors. An awesome change of pace.

Tap at Mad Anthony’s. Hazy yellow color. Fruity aroma. Body just a little thin. Fairly decent Wit.
