3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours with a murky yellow-golden body with a massive and retentive (if not growing) white head that leaves epic lace. Aromas are floral and zesty, chamomile, lavender, curacao orange, coriander and thyme. Flavors are grainy, light salinity, tart, fresh and zesty. Clean and dry chamomile. Very light plastic, lavender. Slightly floral and just a touch more bitter than expect. Very lively carbonation, clean, bright, refreshing and lower bodied. Very good wit!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
$10.49/750mL, no date from Olive Tree Market in OB a week ago. Happy to see a new Upright beer, not happy at the price. My label states 4.5% ABV. Clear effervescent straw with a three finger white head, a bit fizzy and big bubbled, low retention. Nose is dominated by spicy citrusy coriander and florals, some dry cracker malt behind. Flavor follows suit, again, very dry--definitely see the comparison to champagne. Dry finish with low bitterness, floral aftertaste lingers. Thin watery body with moderate to high fizzy carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL. Pours a hazy, glowing light golden. Higher white foam. Good retention. Nose is mild Brett and house yeast, juicy tangerine, bright catty hops. Fresh zest and citrus. Taste is prickly carbonation up front, no hoppiness, no sugar. No soap, sweeter white bready wheat and pale malt. Mild pineapple acid in the finish possibly from the house yeast. Dry finish. Refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale shade of yellow. Quite cloudy. The head is big and fizzy. It dissipates pretty quickly, despite its aggressive beginnings. No lacing. The aroma is light and lemony. Thereís a bit of coriander and some wheat, but itís quite mild. The beer is very dry, and Iím only picking up light spicing in the taste. Lemons, peppercorn, mild wheat spice. Thereís a touch of malt sweetness to it, but itís largely lacking in grain flavor. Orange peel is probably in there. Light, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is effervescent. Carbonation is pretty high. Very light on the palate. Quite crisp. I appreciate the thought of doing a straightforward, low abv witbier, but this beer just lacks the fresh grain flavors and enticing spices of better versions of the style. Itís definitely easy to drink and refreshing but not much more than that.

A bit too much carb. Bright, springy lemon citrus; Belgian yeast; controlled wheat profile. Well balanced; good stuff.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Orange peel, coriander, doughy. I found this very well balanced, but the body was a bit on the thin side.
