Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white fluffy head, last quite awhile, the aroma is spicy, yeast, malty, bread, and detergent. The flavor is pilsner like with a wheat upfront flavor and small floral/citrus notes, infront of that is some caramel and slight sweetness. overall easy drinking but bland, nothing that really says come back and have another.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2016 No smell, taste is almost like a sweet pilsner with a finish of smoke...but old ashtray smoke lol pretty straightforward and mellows a bit, bad smoke taste goes away more... little better with time... smooth (watery)though..(after initial weirdness) airport in syr after 15th year reunion and whole day of not leaving syr

Bottle. Clear amber, thin fizzy off-white head, decent retention. Aroma of tropical fruits, wheat, spice. The taste is wheat, spice, apples, citrus toasted malt. Thin bodied, low carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow orange body with a rather large fizzy white head. Lots of fizzy active carbonation. The nose is mostly coriander and orange peel with a slightly sweet smelling wheat malt base. The flavor is a bit lacking in depth, its pretty well all coriander and orange peel, but theyre not overly intense. Minimal yeast and wheat influence in the aroma. Light bodied with very fizzy active carbonation. Some lingering spicy notes. Pretty basic Wit, I could go for a bit more yeast character in here, but otherwise its decent.

I poured a 12oz bottle into a wheat beer glass. There was no freshness date. It cost $2.40 ($0.20 per ounce).

Appearance: Gold, glowing yellow hue. On the clearer side with only slight cloudiness and plenty of effervescent visible. Forms an average size, white, soapy head which mostly dissipates and leaves minor lacing.

Smell: A slightly grainy aroma more often found in lagers or cream ales. A hint of lemon, but not particularly aromatic.

Taste: Middle Ages Swallow Wit is one of those beers that starts out well enough but begins to slowly lose me the more I drink. Im not a stickler for styles, but this doesnt represent the witbier style all that well, its more of a Kolsch or some kind of generic blonde ale. Beers of this style tend to have orange and spice, but this is more of a clean, mild palette of pale grain with some lemony taste. Theres little bitterness, which makes it quite refreshing while in the mouth, but I want way more flavor than Im getting here. I wouldnt go so far as to describe this as watery or bland as it definitely has some flavor, even if that flavor may be rather boring. An inoffensive beer to be sure, but has to ways to go to garner a thumbs up from me.

Drinkability: While Middle Ages Swallow Wit may not be all that tasty, at least its an easy beer to drink. The mouthfeel is on the thinner side with some crisp carbonation throughout and a clean aftertaste. Its refreshing across the tongue which makes it useful as a summer seasonal. At only 4.8% ABV its got the lighter weight you want in a beer of the type, though Id prefer a bigger body with more flavor.

The beer was lightly carbonated with a smooth finish. Simple beer with a simple taste.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Clear medium yellow color. One and a half fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a little worse than average and no lacing is left. 4.0 S: Big grassiness that smells great. Corriander, hay, and a nonspecific spiciness. Simple, yet pleasant and quite satisfying. 3.5 T: Taste is closely similar to the nose, but it doesnt satisfy quite as much for whatever reason. Corriander, wet grass and hay, spice. Its not complex, but it is flavorful. 3.5 M: Lighter body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. Good enough. 3.0 D: Tasty, easy drinking beer. I want a little more, but Im happy enough with what I got. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-01-2012 04:04:19

My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with an enormous foamy yellow-white head that left minimal lacing. The aroma was strong lemon - tart and spritzy and resembling a cleaning product. The flavor was tart lemon, chalk and a touch of must. Medium length finish of tart lemon and chalk and turning dry at the end. Exceptionally overcarbonated. Ok.

Bottle @ hotel room, Ithaca. Gusher. Hazy, golden orange appearance with a big, off-white head. Sweet orange peel, coriander, sweet citrusy, wheat malty aroma. Fairly sweet, well carbonated, orange citrusy, sweet wheat malty, coriander flavor. Not all that bad.
