3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Nice foggy, unfiltered yellow color with ¼ inch soapy head. Great retention and lace. Nose is traditional Wit. Great wheat and coriander aromas. Flavor follows the nose with a nice amount of orange peel. The citrus shows up a lot in the finish. Slightly tart. The spice is extremely mild.
Texture is dry. Body is on the thin side yet doesn’t really make it a negative aspect at all. Overall a very simple and straight-forward Wit. Very light and easy to drink. I would not only drink this again; I would buy again. Tasty.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: light, nearly clear yellow with a quickly vanishing fizzy white head and no lace. Aroma: traditional wit flavors, maybe a little more aggressive than usual with the spices. Taste: spicy, with notes of coriander, white pepper, a hint of clove, and a good dose of citrus. Finish: crisp, clean, and very quick. Notes: Flavors were on par with a really excellent wit, but the palate was a little light and the appearance was pretty lackluster (although the label artwork is pretty nice). Not as good as a Hoegaarden, and way below an Allagash White.

Pours a hazy light golden blonde color with a minimal head that disappears quickly. Aromas are sweet apple, lemon and touches of belgian spice. On the palate its straight forward with a bit of sweet citrus on the start that moves into a mid palate spice, good carbonation, and on to a refreshing finish that rounds the beer out nicely with a touch of tartness lingering....

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2012 Draft @ FG w e. Mirky yellow-white pour into shaker. Sweet/tart aroma with some lemon zest, and a tart, wheaty flavor approaching sour. Pretty good. Short legs.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear yellow with no head. Aroma and taste is dominated by a spiciness that I wasn’t expecting and didn’t enjoy. Relatively light... Not one I will go back to.

pours very light-blonde- cloudy. nose is quite offputting, sulfer, like sea air, and pee. as the bottle warmed up it became more barnyard wheat smell, but not enough spicyness to really draw me in. taste was more wheat beer with a subdued spicyness kinda watery on the pallet. blah.

This beer was like an upgraded version of Shock Top (though I hate to compare the two). It appeared as a very cloudy yellow beer with a fair amount of yeast floating around. Obviously superior, the yeasty and fruity notes of THIS beer fill the mouth with a satisfying coriander twang. The finish was pretty damn spicy/herbal well, but with a touch of hops to cleanse the palate as well.
