3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass summons forth both a lemon-like / coriander scent and a frothy initially three-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a fairly clear gold color that shows a brilliantly though not quite clear, straw-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is all spices with notes of lemon, a touch of earthy coriander and a finish that has a touch of malt character with a cracker-like grain note.
Somewhat sweet tasting (for a Wit), with a medium’ish body that has enough heft to just cling to the palate after each sip, but is still pretty quaffable.. Spicy with notes of white pepper, citrus zest, and a slightly phenolic finish that reminds me a bit of ginger, but there is also a bite of coriander. While this beer is very spice dominated, some of the fermentation character comes through and contributes to the overall spiciness. There is a touch of woody character that couples with the earthy black pepper and coriander spice notes. As the beer warms a bit more the citrus character becomes more characteristic of orange zest.
Not a bad example of a Wit, it leans towards the citrus side of the spice spectrum, which I definitely enjoy. I prefer my Wits to be a little drier and a little more tart, but this is well within the style parameters.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle... ugly dirty gold, off white head, leaves only a ring but has some lace... lightly sweet, graham cracker, cereal, ok but super boring... taste is bland but its better than the nose, sweet overall in a generic way, really grainy, a bit of honey... it unoffensive enough, just so many better options its not worth it

Pale gold with a slight haze. Crisp up front, somewhat chewy toward the finish. Spicy and herbal, with elements of coriander, clove and white pepper. Sweet malt base, with hints of white cake and honey. Mild yet fitting bitterness level. Refreshing and tasty beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle hauled back from utah by superdave70...
hazy sunshiny yellow with a frothy white head and some drips of foam.
it smells crisp, light and refreshing.... a mix of dusty wheat, pale grainy sweetness, orange, earthy spice and a little yeast.
the flavor has a slight tart note to it... almost like sour cream... lemon, orange, wheat, coriander/earthiness, florals and a muddy/dirty finish. that tartness combined with citrus take care of the finish and make the light to medium body crisp, refreshing and terribly sessionable. 6/3/7/3/14/3.3

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours to a really pale yellow body with lots of carbonation and a thin creamy white head. The aroma seemed to have a lot of Saaz hops. Some light coriander and yeast. The flavor is pretty much the same. Saaz are apparent, but then subtle coriander and wheat. Almost like it is a blend of a white ale and a pilsner.
