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.

Ultra pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of mildly skunked grains, coriander, orange peel and yeast. Taste of grains, coriander, citrus and yeast. Carbonated with a weird oily mouth feel and a peppery finish. Misses the mark.

bottle - This brew has a tart, citrusy, yeasty aroma. It tastes sweet and spicy, maybe a little too sweet, and has a light to medium body and a lively palate. Overall it’s a good wit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked this one up at Whole Foods in Las Vegas on behalf of adnielson, so that he could live vicariously through me as I take down this garbage juice. Pour is clear straw with a small white head that quickly dissipated - decent lacing. Wheaty, spicy, somewhat skunky aroma - lacto, biscuit, and dough. Taste is wheaty, bready, grassy, lightly spicy, a touch of coriander, banana, and citrus with a crisp/dry finish. Light body with high carbonation. Pretty simple and really kind-of: Meh. Oh well, just throw it back and get buzzed quick!

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.
