3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft taster at Bavarian Lodge, May 24. Very light color, slight yellowish haze in the glass. a light cider nose overwhelmed by the German sausage platter the lady next to me is eating. First sip has some Juicy Fruit to it. some orange peel. I was expecting a coriander from the wit yeast, but it’s barely noticeable. The apple taste is pretty light, contributing to a very light mouthfeel. You could easily down a lot of these before you knew what hit you. Very light fizz all the way to the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Spring Lake, MI). Pours a pale straw hue, decent haziness and mellow champagne glow. Loose bubbly white head atop dies to a small ring, laces small. Aromas are a bit of flaked wheat, touches of yeastiness and faint coriander. Apple cider, red apples and a bit of citrus permeate. Gentle, a bit dry but complex. The Wit elements come out well. Initial has just a touch of body, tart sweet cider is gentle, a mellow yeastiness and dryness play well with the Wit elements. A bit of citrus, coriander and dry yeastiness meld. More tart green apple elements into the backend with some lingering coriander as we taper out. Finish is a bit tart, gentle lemon and coriander, dryness stick on the palate. Nice stuff, I think. Really straddles the styles well with nice Wit elements while still remaining true to the Cider beneath.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent xttremely light gold with white lacing. Smells solid too; a nice, dry English apple cider presence. Tastes like it smells, but not as balanced. Average on the palate with a very tart, fairly dry mouthfeel. Solid, but tart, and smells better than it tastes.
