Bottle @ home picked up at Wine and Cheese STL. Thanks to jcnielsen to sending it to me. Pours a hazy cloudy, somewhat dark orange appearance with a big tan head. Fairly spicy, floral, potpourri, freshly cleaned carpet, a bit fruity aroma. Somewhat oxidized, a bit old, a bit goopy malty, orange fruity, fairly spicy flavor. This one has been sitting for a while, so itís definitely deteriorated but Iím not sure it would that amazing fresh.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden beer, light white head. Soma is faint citrus and malt. Nut much special going on here. Flavor is faint, light bitter, not much refreshing like a regular wit. Could be better.

superspak (2612) - Michigan, USA - JAN 29, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/4/2014. Pours extremely hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of orange, pear, apple, lemon, orange rind, apple skin, coriander, light banana, floral, wheat, bread, pepper, clove, and earthy yeast esters. Nice and pleasant aromas; with good balance and complexity of malt, spices, and yeast esters. Taste of pear, apple, orange zest, lemon, light banana, wheat, coriander, bread, honey, floral, light clove, and earthy yeast esters. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, wheat, coriander, light clove, bread, honey, and earthy yeast esters on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; with a good malt/spice balance, but feels a bit toned down in flavor for 7.5%; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good high gravity witbier. Very nice balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
