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
