3.85/5 rDev -0.3%
I poured a bottle into a pilsner glass.
Appearance- Cloudy golden-orange color with two fingers of foamy head. Nice amount of lace.
Smell- Strong aroma of wheat, citrus, and spices.
Taste- Sweet wheat malt flavor at the start that turn into a fruity citrus halfway through, and ends with a big coriander spice finish.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied and smooth with an average amount of carbonation.
Overall- A fairly good beer but just a tad too much spice at the finish.

A - Hazy gold with a orangish hue. Large, foamy, creamy, white head. Pretty good retention leaving patches of lace.
S - Loads of spice and fruit. Citrus, curaçao, coriander, and banana. Sweet with just a kick of spice. Some wheaty aroma. Not a typical Wit.
T - Loads of fruitiness. Banana, pineapple, pear, mango, and orange. Curaçao takes over mid-sip. Some spice (coriander and pepper mostly). Some honey, and sweet wheaty malt. Touches of vainilla and peach.
M - Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty smooth.
D - A little too much fruit and spice flavors. Not difficult to drink this glass, but I couldn't see having more.
Notes: Interesting Wit that seems a bit on the gimmicky side for me (with all the fruit and spice especially with the curaçao taking over). It's not bad, but it ended up tasting a bit like a mixed cocktail.

Poured this one into a standard pint glass, and the beer produced about a two finger thick pillow soft looking head of bright white, and the body was golden white with a mild haze The head retention is impeccable.
The aroma is of sweet honey, coriander, original bubblegum and gooey caramel.
Taste wise it's like chewing on some Topps bubblegum, with maybe a touch of blood orange character... Very sugary.
Feels full in body, with mild carbonation. Somewhat oily slick, which keeps a palate moist at first, but then the alcohol cuts in at the very end to dry the palate.
A great double wit IMHO, and I'd recommend this to anybody, beer drinker or not.

The body was a nice brass color with a lot of sediment. There is a lot of foam and head too. Overall, I would say it was good looking beer. The aroma is very spicy and I am not sure if that is from the hops, yeast or coriander. Maybe it is the combination of all. The flavor is also very spicy. It is odd because in most wits that I try I taste the orange first then spice but this one is the opposite. The head and lace maintain their present throughout the session

Be careful when you open this - the sample I got foamed as though doing so would help the Cubs finally win the World Series again. It pours a clear sunny yellow with a VERY thick white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is not strong, but is fruity and malty with a bit of sweetness, inviting a taste. Flavor is malty, fruity, grassy and just a little sweet, rather enjoyable. Texture is smooth and a bit fizzy, leaving a sweet and herby finish. If this isn't Great Divide's best, it is still worthy of at least a try.

4.22/5 rDev +9.3%
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color capped by a rocky meringue that leaves a few clumps behind
Smell: Wheat bread, coriander, orange peel and a hint of vanilla
Taste: Tangy wheat bread, coriander and orange peel, up front, with a bit of alcohol arriving at mid-palate; pear, nuts and vanilla appear, after the swallow, with a lingering sweetness in the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation
Overall: Interesting flavor profile (and has matured nicely - brewed on 6/9/10) and about as good as it gets for a double wit, but not something I really would want to re-visit
