3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: May 16,2015... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephan weizen... OCCASION: chilling with the boys after baseball and cub scouts... APPEARANCE: tawny, misty and slow in its effervescence; white head is soapy and fizzy, with a swift descent into the body; still, the head does retain a quarter-inch consistently around... AROMA: banana, orange and coriander--all accounted for and refreshingly light; anise is tough to detect... PALATE: refreshingly light, but with a dull thinness that only wakens to life when swirled in the mouth; due mostly to the pepper, the finish lasts well into the next sip... TASTE: mostly orange peel--not a bad thing, but not as complex as purported by the label; the payoff, however, is in the grains of paradise, a hard, punchy pepper that balances the banana and citrus nicely... OVERALL: Weyerbacher has come a long way--do I write this in all their recent reviews?--creating a refreshing beer, comfortable in its ABV%...I originally had their White Sun or Blanche way back and believe this is either beer rebranded...if so, this is definitely a thirst quencher with enough flavor to be enjoyed without sun or sweat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow body with a slight yeast haze under a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is quite spicy and bright with a heavy orange peel and coriander quality. Just a light hint of yeastiness pushing through. The flavor is a little overly spiced with coriander for my tastes, but the orange peel tastes pretty nice. Minimal yeastiness, light clean wheat, finishes with a bit of a soapy note from the coriander that really lingers. Light bodied and fizzy mouthfeel. On the whole, a little overly spiced for my tastes in the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is of banana, yeast, bready malts, wheat, and lemon. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a semi dry, slightly watery, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decent wit beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Hazy thin yellow-tan body. Definitely get the spices in the aroma, some nice wheat tones as well. Pretty solid Wit, has a nice depth to it, certainly better than 90% of US Wits out there. True to style, with a doughy vanilla wheat tone, and a well balanced spicing. Refreshing, very enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very light yellow with haze and quickly dissipating head. The taste has some sour fruit. This does come across as a typical Belgian Wit, an average beer at best.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(retrieved from 08/2013 Midwest jpg backlog, PT bottle from Ridgeview Liquor, Green Bay) Dishwater citrus nose on same palate: soggy feeling of underfermented yeast on a watery body, overspiced with mainly coriander and anise out of context, and quite some overhopping. An accidental, lazy potpourri of a White IPA rather than a suave and mellow wit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-25-12 -
\Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a great level of lacing.
Smell – Fruit aromas of citrus orange and lemon as well as hints of banana are strongest. These are mixed with lighter notes of yeast, wheat and a coriander spice, which overall create a very classic wit aroma.
Taste – The taste begins a bit on the wheaty side with notes of lemon and coriander spice mixed within. As the taste advances the lemon gives way to a more orange citrus taste. Toward the end the now sweeter (but not really sweet) flavor mixes with a bready flavor, leaving a very lightly sweetened wheaty flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The mouthfeel is on the thin side with the carbonation level being above average. Both are rather fitting for making for a very refreshing style beer - Light and flavorful.
Overall – While nothing to go out of your way for, it is easy drinking and refreshing and good for a nice summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 strange aroma - definitely funky, yeasty, some banana and theres something from the spices thats nutty/woody - some graininess there too - very light yellow - flavor isn’t that big - spices/yeast add a dry tangy twist but not a lot of dimension even at 4.6-mainly lightly creamy, grainy, and yeasty, little bit of cheerios - very light wit - not bad overall, definitely refreshing, but the spices seem a bit jumbled in the flavor and aftertaste, could use a bit more body - but the good qualities are amplified when consumed cold on a hot night - interesting aroma
