[Suggested Glassware: Weizen Glass]

The pour was a cloudy medium yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white bubbly head that quickly diminished, down to a lightly scattered film and small collar which did eventually disappear with poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was mild with a grain malt and a light soapy yeast with a hint of citrus (lemon and orange), a touch of coriander and a mild note of pepper.

The taste was lightly citrusy throughout with a decent wheat presence stepping up only to be slightly overshadowed by a somewhat bold spiciness at the end. The flavor hung on for a good while after the swallow, with a citrusy and mildly peppery taste that was left to linger at the back of the throat.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a moderately dry texture and an almost prickly carbonation.

Overall this was a zesty tasting Witbier with lots of citrus flavor upfront and a yeasty spicy taste that relaxed on the taste buds at the finish...

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass. Cloudy, light golden straw color, medium carbonation, ½ inch of white head with some lacing that clings to the side. Smell is of orange peel, coriander and some other spices; some banana and bread as well. Taste is a complex but well-balanced mix of the citrus (tart and sweet), wheat and spices. Very slight hops and a twinge of alcohol. Medium-light mouthfeel. Finishes very clean. Overall, a nice example of this style. Would pair well with seafood (this would be great with mussels), white meats, light pasta, veggies, etc.

Pint on tap at Library in Farmingdale, N.Y.

Appearance: Pours a golden straw color with a minimal head that is gone in a hurry. Lacing is almost nonexistent. I'm sort of surprised by how clear this appears because I read that it was unfiltered. It's slightly hazy, but less than I expected.

Aroma: Smells like lemon, citrus, grapefruit, hop bitterness and pine. It's more faint than I'd expected, though.

Taste: This has a sort of odd chalky taste that doesn't really appeal to me. The dominant flavor, however, is lemon. It's okay but I was hoping for a little more citrus and less lemon.

Mouthfeel: The chalkiness is evident in the mouthfeel. Otherwise it's kind of watery.

Overall: I thought this was very average on the whole. It has some appealing qualities but is far from my favorite example of the style. I'm glad I tried it but the mac & cheese I had with it was the star of the meal.

12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger frothy head that reduced to a thin layer and left frothy lacing. It is a hazy pale yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Bready malts, citrus, lemony, spicy, and a little sweetness.

Taste: Bready, vanilla, spices, lemony, orange, a little sweet, and some tartness.

Mouthfeel: A bit chewy, but smooth, medium to high carbonation, refreshing, medium bodied, and a little dry.

Overall: I feel like I have had this one before. Pretty solid and refreshing.

A - Pours a hazy gold with a one-finger foamy white head.

S - Corriander, orange, banana, and doughy yeast.

T - Starts off with a good amount of wheat. Strong amounts of corriander, orange peel, and light pepper follow. Finish is floral and earthy.

M - Medium bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp mouthfeel.

O - Very refreshing beer. Would make a nice summer brew.
