2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Bottle, poor into a pint. Pours a clear yellow with lots of floating spices and yeast. Has a big bubbly white head which did stay awhile, nearly til the end. Leaves a soapy like lacing. Has a good aroma of fruits and spices. Very high carbonation. The flavor is pretty good. Nice mouthfeel. A LOT of spice. they say they use 12 varieties of peppercorns.. well, you can taste it. In fact, it’s big time in the finish. It is nearly overwhelming. I don’t think I would ever buy it again. Just to much spice.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A-pours a murky brownish yellow with particles floating around. its quite ugly looking, hope it tastes better.
S-not here, extremely soapy fruit esters, hints of stale grain, light soapy orange peel. not good.
T-the taste follows the nose but not to the degree of offensiveness. light notes of toasted grain up front, soapy juniper berries and orange peel, faint notes of yeast and slightly bready in the back.
M-oily slick feel to it with a light amount of carbonation and murky rough finish.
D-this is a relatively poor attempt at the style and not only tastes bad but looks bad as well. soapy and murky, sweet with no spice and little to no yeast flavors.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at U Pick 6. Very little head. Wonderful creamy mouthfeel. A good tasting witbier with an interesting peppery finish. A little spicy but enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow color with a nice fluffy white head. The aroma is of of orange citrus and spices (maybe coriander). Kind of a peppery spice to the noise as well. The initial taste is spice then followed by the citrus taste. Fairly crisp and clean. The pepper taste is not the most pleasant both in the aroma and the taste. Not a hug fan of that. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, this is just an ok beer for me. I could really do without the pepper taste that to me overwhelms the total flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with a large frothy white head. The nose is heavily spiced with orange peel and coriander and some yeast derived spice. Prominant Belgian tripel yeastiness. The flavor comes across decidely less spiced than the nose let on. Still a good bit of coriander though. There’s maybe a minor contribution from the juniper berries, but it’s minimal. Nice yeast profile. Light bodied and fizzy with a long lingering spicy finish. Oddly enough, the carbonation lends itself well to burping, where the juniper berries really come out. Decent Wit, with a unique twist coming from the juniper.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The Voodoo brewers were pouring their own brews for a tasting at Bocktown this past Wednesday. I sampled the 6 available and later got this one on-tap last night.
A- Body is a hazy golden yellow color that has about 1/2 finger white head that retains well. Cloudiness is thick and uniform.
S- whoa spiciness. This is loaded with coriander and peppercorns. Definitely the main characters here. Underneath this is floral hops and some yeast.
T- Taste is pretty similar to the smell. Lots of spices upfront with a touch of floral hop taste and a substantial yeast back bone and mild citrus buried somewhere deep within. The spices intensify for the finish as some floral hop bitterness arises. Coriander and peppercorn flavors linger.
P-Medium carbonation and a light drinkable body. I wish the yeast was more present here-but still good.
O- This is definitely not your typical witbier...but hey that’s the point! Wouldn’t life be boring if all witbiers tasted the same? This is a pretty good beer and one I will have again...besides it was pretty cool to talk to the brewers about all the work they put into making their beers. Easy to drink and a nice twist to the style.
Serving type: on-tap
