2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark golden color with floaties and a small white head. The aroma was moderately sweet, coriander, herbal, wheat, and a touch of fruit. The flavor had an almost out of control herbal presence. Pepper, coriander, other spices, yeast, wheat grass, some malt. Taken in moderation these flavors work well, but this is too much thrown together.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy golden amber coloured body with a thin white head and a tiny bit of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao, wheat and a bunch of honey. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive maltie/wheatie flavours tucked into the coriander seed and curacao freshness. Aftertaste shows a bit of the wit, but also a bit lost in transition. Overall, a good beer - not showing enough good characteristics to make it a ’must try’, but good to sample for me, none-the-less. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Ramsey Liquors in Ramsey, New Jersey on 19-January-2009, sampled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 28-February-2009.

Bomber at Zeno’s. Pours gold with bunches of floaties, thin white head. The aroma is tangerine, lemon, coriander, some light toast. The flavor is spritzy lemon and orange, with a whole lot of coriander and pepper, and some yeasty sourdough bread. Not bad, but the spices are way overdone.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle given to me as a Christmas gift from my brother-in-law and sis. Pours a clear golden color with tons of visible floaties swimming around inside tons of carbonation despite the fact that this was the first 6 ounces of the bottle. I wonder how much more sediment is actaully at the bottom of this one? Aroma of tons of pepper and spice, oranges, coriander, slight wheat. Body on this one is rather dry with a light to medium mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma and very forced...very peppery and spicey, grainy and yeasty. Hmmm....it’s only 6% ABV so do I force the rest down?? Hell it’s my Friday night so why the hell not, just hope all the pepper and spices don’t give me heart burn.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle- aroma was real peppery, some phenols, but mostly an unpleasant spice. Thankfully, the flavor was quite nice- dry, coriander, a well done wit that was extremely satisfying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Champane Wine.
Poured hazy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium spicy yeast aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium to heavy pepper spice flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate duration.
Interesting brew that would go well with spicy food.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Smells like a wit that’s been hanging around a bit too long. Pours with a huge soapy head which settles fairly quickly. Only slightly hazy, mostly clear, perhaps what an unfiltered miller lite would resemble. Sharp carbonation on the tongue with light spicing. Light flavor as well, though the juniper is quite present. Also tasting some spice, though the carbonation makes it hard to tell. Stirring up the yeast adds a bit of a sour funk unlike the pleasant complexity of better wits. Still drinkable but not worth its premium price.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber/orange, no real head to speak of. Aroma is orange, juniper, light spices, a little soapy. Flavor is juniper, pepper, very slight touch of citrus. Strange Wit, very odd and unique.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Barf. This stuff is gross. Looks like it’s been lightly filtered, a sin for witbier if it’s true. Smells and tastes like soapy juniper and gin with some fabric softener and ethanol. Slimy, silky body, where’s the fruit and where’s the clove? Blah. Is that a good enough review? I realize it’s only about 1/5th of what I should write, but I could only drink 1/5th of the bottle.
