APPEARANCE: A finger and a half of stark white foam sits gently on top of a crystal clear, pale, bright, yellow beer. A few champagne bubbles slowly work their way from the bottom of the glass to the bottom of the foam as the head slowly recedes. This is a very good looking beer.

SMELL: Quite a unique, complex smell here; grass, some fruit aromas (lemon is big), plenty of spice and just a very faint hint of barnyard funk lurking beneath it all.

TASTE: Like the nose, there is a LOT going on in here. A ton of sweet fruit flavors attack the palate right off the bat, but a strong black pepper spiciness tames that sweetness a touch. A little oak and vanilla flirt with the palate as well before a slight grassy and citrusy hop flavor washes the sip down.

MOUTHFEEL: Light to medium bodies, the carbonation in Unified Theory is very lively with an excellent, champagne-like sparkle. While it is sweet to start, the finish dries out quite nicely, paving the way for the next sip.

OVERALL: This is a far more interesting beer than any other Wit I’ve had. Big enough to hold up during these winter months, but will be a nice summer sipper as well.

Aroma is my favorite feature-- passion fruit, hints of honey, and tangerine. Instead of the typical cloudy pale yellow, this is clear yellow gold. The first sip is shocking, it's just so sweet as to make me woozy. Even Pink Champale is dry compared to this.

I can see why TheBrewo noted every fruit flavor known to man in his review. Maybe there really is a hint of parsnips here. And is that lemon verbena? It is truly swarming with strange and mainly fruity flavors. And the wood. I guess this is faintly like a Witbier, but mostly it's a mad scientist's version of a Belgian strong golden ale. A little bit of pencil shavings is the only spice I taste.

This is not something to drink more than a short glass of, but it's quite fascinating. I was hoping for less sugar and a cleaner taste, but I keep sipping and being amazed by the sheer craziness. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.
