Naked Nun Batch 750ml #009 Bottled 4/11/2013:

Poured into a pint glass, color was a hazy orange with nice white head, smells of spice and citrus. Taste was the same with the wheat giving it body, very easy to drink and refreshing ale.. I could drink this everyday in the hot months to come, especially on the beach.

4.13/5  rDev +13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a super clean straw yellow pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. smells of bready yeast, lemon, orange peel, and coriander. tastes citrusy sweet with a bready bacbone and slight hoppy bitterness. light body with a slightly creamy feel, highly carbonated, crisp and refreshing. as far as witbiers go, this is excellent. the high carbonation makes this a MUST for summertime weather. i feel weird giving such a plain beer style such a high rating, but as far as the style goes, this takes the cake.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Hazy, brownish pear color with plenty of loose yeast in suspension and plenty at bottom of bottle and glass. Thin, quickly dissipating white head leaves no lacing.

S- A bit sour (my brother and co-taster agreed). Coriander and a light citrus.

T- Much more complex than smell indicates. Sweet with a hefeweizen type bubble gum flavor and aftertaste. Orange/citrus flavor is more prominent.

M- Light-bodied with dry afterfeel.

O- Had Scratchin' Hippo at a beerfest recently and actually poured it out. This is a much stronger effort. A bold wit that i recommend you seek out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A: Hazy and gold, as opposed to white. Head faded quickly. Good lacing.

S: Lemon peel, hay, pepper.

T: Delicious! Spicy and tangy to start with, then a nice, bitter, refreshing finish.

M: Quite full-bodied, but carbonation also keeps it interesting.

O: Expensive, but tasty. I wouldn't pay this much for it again but I enjoyed it.

11.1 oz Batch 001 Bottle #02567 into a tulip

A: Pours a hazy dark yellow with a nice white head that fades to a ring and leaves tiny spots of lacing.

S: The nose is incredibly good with large doses of lemon, orange, and other citrus aromas along with vanilla and belgian yeast esters as well.

T: The taste is nice as well starting with sweet esters followed by citrus and wheat flavors as well.

M: The feel is light and a touch drying on the finish.

O: This is one of the better Witbiers I've had to date and something I'm glad I can get locally. This will definitely make the hotter months of the summer somewhat tolerable.

3.98/5  rDev +9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Golden Straw-Blonde colored. Slight haze. Thick foamy crisp white head
Nose:
Typical Wit style scents coming through, clove, slight fruit that is more mild in nature- not citrusy. Light alcohol scent
Palate:
Delicious, crisp and clean. Clove, coriander, spice, pears, apple and perhaps some peach as well. Light and balanced.
Overall:
I am not a giant fan of wit style beers- with the exception to this one. It is refreshing and balanced with enough crisp fruity notes to keep my interest.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Starts with a huge head, foamy and cream-colored. The liquid is cloudy and orange and wheat colored, but still very close to white and pale.

The aroma of clove and banana immediately hit me when I crack the bottle and some sweet maltiness and wheat are present as well. I get much more on the tongue, particularly tartness and lemon, then the banana and clove, a wheaty back end, some slight pepperiness and spice.

I appreciate the light body on this beer and how easy it is to sip. The carbonation is strong, but there's still some creaminess. The beer finishes semi-dry with a tingling sensation from the yeast.

I'd have more of this in a heartbeat. It was good on this semi-cold New Mexico evening, but also would go great in the warmer months.

A – It looks like champagne…Yup…Solid clear/yellow/white head with a lot of carbonation flowing up from the bottom. Looks pretty good.

S – Wow, when this first came out of the bottle the smell hit me in the face and I literally hated it. Like I got angry about it for a second. But I just buried my nostrils deep into her undercarriage and she smells just lovely. Tart and floral, spicy and citric with lemon. Smells great! Cool. Neat-o!

T – Interesting. Dang…hang on….hmmmmild. Kind of mild. It’s like aggressively mild though, if you catch my meaning. It is tart and has orange and lemon, with some bread and a little banana as well. But the novelty is wearing off on me. I was getting giddy for a moment there, thinking I had stepped onto something grand. Not grand, just good. It also has some rather intense barnyard funk to it. If that was dialed back a touch this ale could be very interesting. Bold ass choices have been utilized here though, and I have to respect this brewery for that…Sweetens and much of the funk turns to a nice spiciness on the finish though. I gotta say, this is a real surprise, and damn interesting. Feels good.

M – The mouthfeel is light-medium with the pedal down on the carbonation and it really is consistent, good job there as well.

O – It’s good. Definitely worth a try. I wasn’t sure what I was in for, but I’ve definitely never had anything quite like this. It really is nice but it toes the line rather precariously between being not good at all and being wholly good. As they say though, fortune favors the bold...ALSO I'm editing my review just to say this, as it continues to warm, it has a very lovely bubblegum taste to it.
