Smells a bit of wheat, looks quite good. This is somewhat champagne like but a bit too wheaty for my tastes. Decent but not worth a ten spot to me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 5/11/12 from a capped 750mL bottle brought to me and shared by my friend Chris, thanks Chris. Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is cereal and bread malt with sweet orange peel and the traditional aroma of coriander. The flavor is creamy cereal and oats with some bread, the orange peel comes out more bitter than on the nose, with a nice hit of coriander. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long spiced orange peel finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A spicy witbier with a relatively strong tartness. Above average for the style
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed approximately 2 months after purchase. Bottle forwarded to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Moderately cloudy blonde body topped by a short lived white head
In long: Nose is very wheaty with usual coriander, some orange peels and perfumed notes that fresh wild flowers. Taste is again very wheaty and with a much stronger tartness than in most Belgian wits. Also spiciness, mangos, coriander, doughy yeast, orange peels and flowers. Also tiny bit of dusty attic giving the beer a subtle rustic character. The body felt very light and the carbonation was a little too soft. But I enjoyed the fun tartness and the flowers sensation. A good witbier, but really not mindblowing. This Pure Wit wasn’t bad, but a better example of pure wit would be if a cop pulls you over and says "Papers" and you answer "Scissors" and drive away.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is wheat, some lactic acid, orange peel, and a bit of lemon. The taste is tart with a little bit of initial sweetness. There is some lemon, orange peel, a bit of pepper, and some wheat. The finish is tart and a quite dry. Light bodied with low carbonation. This was quite enjoyable. I don’t think it is quite to style, but a pretty enjoyable beer.

bottle... dark straw body, mostly clear a little cloudy in the middle, bright white head clings to the glass a bit... the aroma is bit off, smells really dank at first, TONS of coriander, a little orange peel, but then more dank on the finish... the off aroma and now taste confirm my thoughts of an infection, light buttery sour, a bit lactic tart, more dank, really thin, not much flavor... big time disappointment!
