3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft from Village Beer Merchant. Pours a very hazy light straw color. Aroma is dominated by an almost perfumey amount of coriander with touches of alcohol (which is strange since it’s fairly light on the abv) and yeasty wheat. Mouthfeel is lively but you could still taste the cloudiness of the brew. Taste is spicy and citrusy coriander and sweet wheat malt with a light tartness and funk. Little bit of grainy staleness along with moderate coriander (maybe some hop?) bitterness in the aftertaste. Very decent for the style, although it lacks the orange flavor i’m used to being assaulted with in wit beers.

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
