2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clean orangish gold with a fizzy white head. The nose and taste are as described above. For me all of the flavors were a bit too muted. The beer had potential, but I think they need to up the "spices" a bit to give it more bang.
Blind tasted with 3 other witbiers. Witbiers were 1. Fytenburg Grand Cru Blanc 2, Old Town Abbey White 3. Sierra Nevada Ovila White Ale 4. Tighthead Go-Go Wit. Rater 1 rated the beers 3142, Rater 2 (ME) 3142, Rater 3 3412.

473ml can. Lightly hazed light gold pour. Aroma is typical coriander witbier. Flavor is again coriander, soapy, coriander-forward.
Post tasting thoughts:
This was a bit to spicy, but not unpleasant.

Sampled at great taste. Some haze in this golden beer. Nice fruit and yeast profile. Just a little sugar. A nice beer. whiskeyrocks (90) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Nice local wheaty whit beer. Bright golden color with good head. Smells a little fruity with a hint of spice. Full wheat flavor with a floral and coriander finish. Comes out in the late spring and gone before I can finish enjoying it. Vir4030 (603) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2014

Draft pour at route 45 bar. Yellow with white head. Sweet grassy light lemon aroma. Sweet grassy light lemon taste. Good for the style. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Sampled on tap at the brewery (Mundelein, IL). Pours a richer pale yellow straw well hazed hue. Some yellow edges, decent glow with a frothy whitish head atop that dies to a mellow film, laces ok. Aromas are dry bread, flaked wheat, kiss of coriander. Touches of lemon, straw, gentle bready grains. Dry, touches of lemon, with dryness, gentle spice. Initial is dry, mellow body with touches of grass and straw, dry grains and bread. Touch of dough, citrusy lemon, white pepper and coriander. Dry and lighter, the middle shows gentle carbonation, a touch more lemon rind, florals and earthy dryness, flaked wheat grains. Touches of lotion, yeast, and spice into the backend. Lingering bready malts, kisses of coriander linger, grass and straw, growing and lingering earthy hops. Interesting, different, a touch of orange peel here and there, but more bland bread, earthy hops, touches of lemon for me. A focus on spice into middle and backend. Ok.
