3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A wonderful complexity in aroma though the head is short lived and mildly soapy. A typical white ale appearance with murky off peach hue. This beer has a citrus zing on mouthful. A bit watery for itís class yet deliciously not bitter. Floral notes are on mouthful but they are not predominate. The aftertaste is fair and appropriately fruity.

On Tap. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. White bread, light bubblegum. Lemon aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Average, and a little thin. Wheat, yeast, lemon... Standard fare, but fine.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a mug since it is a witbier and not weizen because weizens are for German styled weizen beers, not Belgian witbiers.
Anyways, hereís the rest.
The appearance was an extremely nice looking hazy pale golden yellow with a decent one finger to one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipates within about less than a minute. There isnít much lacing.
The smell has a super nice blend of coriander to orange peel leading to a nice sweet lemon-like lingering aroma just rolling all around underneath my nose.
The taste was pretty sweet through the orange but gently lets in the coriander to add a very nice spicy element to the flavor. Thereís a slight refreshing sweet to spicy aftertaste that ends up leading to a slight coriander semi-dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is right on par for the style and for me.
Overall, in my opinion, this was a very nicely done witbier well worthy of having again and would love to have it again with a nice fresh seafood dish. I do have to admit, I am a bit surprised to not find as much yeasty/breadiness to this one, but honestly, I think Iím okay with that.

Draft: Pours a beautiful orangish-yellow with a medium white head. Aromas are orange and citrus fruits with some yeast and earthiness. The flavor is nice a clean citrus with some earthy spice. Coriander and cloves. Very nice summer drinker, with a full body and complex taste.

Mild floral and citrus aromas. Pours a cloudy golden with minimal head, looks great. Light sour taste. Light body, oily texture, and average carbonation.
Overall not a bad white beer, a good one for a hot day.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, orange zest, spicy phenols and coriander. Taste is a delicate balance of orange, citrus, coriander and light spiciness. Just needs a little more body all around.

Straw yellow with very large head. Aroma- dank grain, spice and orange. Taste is similar to aroma. Orange peel, coriander, wheat, candy sugar and very slight bitterness. Don't love this style because they all taste so similar to me. It's plenty good and probably a top example for the style but kind of boring. Just my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Spicy aroma with hints of fresh bread underneath.
Appearance: Sparkling gold with a rich white head that dissipates quickly.
Taste: Light sweetness balance by a soft sourness at the edges.
Palate: Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish.
Overall: Itís a bit too thin for me, and the flavor is a little under developed. Not a bad beer, just nothing outstanding, either.
