3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light yellow body, thick, puffy off white head. Strong yeasty aroma with coriander, orange peel, and tangy wheat. Flavor is rather thin and quite yeasty with coriander and pepper leading to biscuity and somewhat tangy wheat malt, finishing with orange peel and more spice. Although watery this is refreshing and makes an easy pour.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Looks great and smells Ok but the flavor and motuhfeel really hurt this beer. First of all- it tastes more like a berliner weisse due to its sour/acidic qualities. It is quite watery and not too much taste overall. Big let-down from weyerbacher.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Weak, in my opinion. I love the style and I love this brewery, but this has to be the worst Weyerbacher I have had so far. The first one was painful to drink. The second was a little bit easier, but not the hoegaarden experience that I was looking for. The color is light lager yellow. Not too hazy for its type. Flavor is borderline tasteless and the palate is slightly harsh. I do like the bottle’s pic tho. Overall, I’d expect better from them.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sour orange/lemon citrus notes with peppery spices in the nose. Authentic to style. Moderatelyt hazy pale straw color with tiny quickly dissipating white head. Malty, creamy, and boring. A little zing at the end, other than that not much different than a lager. Dissapointing. Does not live up to the aroma.

pours a slightly hazy straw color with a small head. Aroma of orange, yeast, pineapple and peaches. Explosion of flavor to start, mostly citrus and yeast. the middle mellows and is kinda grassy. the finish is clean with a hint of spiciness. This is a nice beer.

Bottle: Cloudy pale straw yellow body with a white head that quickly fades. Aroma: wheat, lemon, straw, banana, spice(orange, yeast). Flavor: First is slightly sour & yeasty, followed by lemon, vanilla, corriander, lots of wheat, and finishes slightly tart. I’ve had better Witbiers.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Pour a quick-dissipating, white head and a fizzy, clouded lemony body. Nose of straw, corn, wheat and lemons. Flavours of mild vanilla, lemons and wheat. Uneventful... I expect more from this brewery.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin, white head that does not last long. Light carbonation. Color is a light gold. Spicey straw aroma with a bit of wheat and roastyness. Flavor is spicy with a dry mouthfeel. More wheat and spices. Finish is slightly dry with a bit of bitterness. A decent witbier.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pale yellow and cloudy body is topped by a smallish, chunky white head. The aroma has a nice bit of floral orange above the slightest hint of banana. Not a lot of clove involved in this thing. The wheat is surprisingly big in the flavor, giving off the essence of the tought crust of a hunk of french bread. Esters support the bready malt with tartness just teasing around the corner. Very light and easy-drinking and very refreshing. A very good summer beer.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled: Poured a cloudy, pale yellow with a moderate white head that faded into odd looking patches of sea foam. (At this point I begin to think something isnt right) Aroma of citrus and not a whole hell of a lot else. First sip, taste of lemons, mouthfeel is quite watery, aftertaste is uggh, nasty. What the hell is wrong with this? Waited and took a second sip, lemony, watery, nasty aftertaste. Pooor representation of the style from an otherwise good brewery. Needs more spice and a cure for that unpleasant aftertaste.
