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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. This is a verly bad witbier, in fact i wouldn’t call it a witbier. Extremely pale yellow, not cloudy at all. There was no flavour aside from lemon, and slight hints of wheat and coriander. No depth of flavour, not such a good effort from these guys.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2011 One of my least favorite Weyerbacher beers. +++12 oz brown bottle. Very nice picture on the bottle - a shallow thing to notice, but I like the effort. I had looked forward to trying this beer for some time. The description on their website promised some liquid glory. It poured a very cloudy pale yellow. There was a small white head that quickly faded as did my hopes. But the aroma brought me back with strong notes of citrus, black pepper and spice. Then came the flavor. Tart. Sour. Dry to the point of crying out where is the sweetness, any sweetness?! There was a hint of lemon that grew as the beer warmed up, but even this could not save the brew. There was even a vaguely skunky nature to the aftertaste. As it warmed a dry spicy flavor began to creep in, but sadly is was a bad spicy flavor that only heightened my disappointment.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2005 On draft at Johnny Brenda’s. Another quaffable brew with a noticeable flavor of apricots (must be orange peel). No head and no lace.
revisited and upgraded at standard tap - fresh and refreshing

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [draft - 10th Annual PA Microbrewers Fest, Pennsylvania Brewing Co. - Pittsburgh, PA] Poured a cloudy white with a thick effervescent white head. The whitest witbier I’ve ever seen. Aroma was one of lemon and wheat with a touch of pepper and other citrus flavors. Initial flavor was a slightly watery wheat taste with a hint of flowery malts and just a touch of citrus. Very crisp and refreshing.

This is a really good wit. Very light yellow body, hazy, with a huge head. Lemon pepper, yeast, wheat banana, pepper. Body is soft and almost thick. Nice almost dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2006 Sherbety, lemony aroma with soft doughy pale malt, chalky yeast, coriander, and honeydew nuances. Slight leafy hop and crackery malt hull touches, also. Soft-bodied; light spritz. Nice and filmy from the yeast. Succulent honeydew flavors pair beautifully with mildly flowery, fresh banana notes and crisp, crackery malts. Lemon pulp helps round the acidity and wet cardboard. Rather tangy from the wheat with a faintly coarse herbal hop and phenolic twinge in the background. Moist, but nicely balanced conclusion between an appealingly clean waxy yeast dollop, fresh citrus pulp, and crushed coriander seeds. Fresh passionfruit flavors linger amid the filmy, tongue-coating yeast and lesser notes of chamomile and herbal hops. This is an understated witbier with remarkable balance and a rather tasty yeast profile. A more-punctual noble hop and sweet malt finish is all this really needs.
