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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz local bottle. Good beer but seems a little outside the normal Belgian witbier class. Maybe a little too much wheat, banana and lemon. Refreshing and a fuller than expected mouthfeel.
