ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 2, 2011
11 ounce goblet - $8.50 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Clouded to the point of opaque murkiness with a dull, dark orange hue. 3/4 inch of pillow, white foam.

Smell: An aroma of fruity jelly supporting an odd herbal, flowery note mix, some underlying barley, and a drop of booze. Itís not exactly alluring, but, then again, neither is the soiled appearance.

Taste: Sugary breadiness with a bit of menthol herbaceousness. A bit of basic lemon and some noted florals, though the latter could be a lingering effect of the menthol quality upfront. A hint of stale orange peel slowly peeks out. Sweetish, fruity finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: I didnít like the standard Wittekerke, I didnít enjoy the Rosť variation, and now the Winter rendition.

The aroma is malty and yeasty with some citrus. The appearance is cloudy yellow with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall very drinkable but not great.

Appearance is gold-orange and very cloudy. The aroma is heavy spices, almost similar to fruit cereal. The flavor is fruit, malts and some alcohol. It was decent, although Double Wits are not a favorite of mine.
