Pours a hazy orange with very little white head. The smell is mostly yeast with some citrus and malt. The taste wasn't very complex, the yeast dominated the flavor, with some citrus notes and a big spice finish, but not much else going on. It had a light mouthfeel, it was smooth, but it could have been a bit more crisp. It was a refreshing beer after coming in on a hot day, lots of flavor, but just yeast and one spice note. Overall a decent beer, nothing that stands out, but an easy drinking beer.

Salem Beer Works
Visited last Oct. (From notes)
A- Cloudy hazy light yellow with a thick heavy lacing head.
S- Spicy peppery slight clove hefe notes. Slight touch of apple and banana.
T- Peppery clove banana. More like a hefe than a Wit. Sweet dry apple and orange.
M- Sweet and fruity. Apples and oranges with a big sweet spicy yeasty finish.
Overall- Light and sweet. A decent offering on a hot day. Not 1 of their best offerings though

16oz. Stange (1/18/08)
This the darkest wit I've ever seen. It's beyond cloudy into the realm of murky. The color is a brownish-tan. Looks more like a Hefeweizen.
Wheaty, bready smell that's neither good nor bad.
The taste is heavy with wheat and bitterness. If you really concentrate you can make out some pepper and a generic spice. These feel flat and overshadowed by the bitter.
Generally good mouthfeel, a bit heavy for a wit, though.
Maybe I've been spoiled or perhaps hoodwinked by the witbiers I have had, but the Victory White doesn't have any of the flavorful "pop" or lightness of what I have come to know of witbier. It's worth a pint if y're looking for something wheaty.

On tap @ BBW (Garden) - served in pint glass.
Light, white grapefruit in color; a little cloudy. Decent head with some lacing.
Doesn't smell like a whole lot; the bartender mentioned "chap-stik" and for some reason, that's exactly what I smelled here. Minimal spice aroma; so far this is a little disappointing.
Tastes very watered down for a wit bier - no spice and very minimalist in its flavor profile. Not a lot going on here.
Light on the palate (there's really nothing to weigh it down).
Would pass on this one - easy drinking, but so is water.

Served in 4oz. sample glass.
A: Straw-golden color; cloudy, translucent; thin head.
S: Citrus aroma. Subtle, not overwhelming.
T: Good balance of malt and hops. Wheat, but no other grabbing flavors.
M: Slightly denser than many others, but not to the point of a syrupy texture; good carbonation.
D: Definitely sessionable; i could drink this all night.

A: Hazy, darker yellow. Slight lacing. A bit cloudy.
S: Weak, citrusy wheat.
T: Wheat hits the tongue right away. It is definitely a traditional hefeweizen type wheat. A hint of lemon.
M: Carbonation is strong at first, then backs off. Very rich mouthfeel.
D: Very drinkable. Good starter for a long night, or with an appetizer.

There was not head retention on this beer, and the color was a sickly ultra pale yellow.
The smell had nothing but pure corn/ filtered grain notes mixed with a clove like ester from the yeast.
THe taste was of pure bavarian hefe weisen yeast, no corriainder, no smooth bread like notes from the un malted wheat, no citrus from the orange.
The flavor became worse as it lingered and provided for a poor mouthfeel.
Although the body was light, the poor flavor of this beer hinders it drinkiability.
Unfortunatley, if I had the oportunity, I would of had blue moon.

Served in a 16 oz stange at the brewpub. Pours a camel and golden-colored haze beneath a foamy white head with good retention, leaving lots of condensed lacing down the sides. Notes of citrus solvency, corriander/pepper; very phenolic. Stiff malted wheat, slightly toasted with a touch of sweetness. Short-lived lemon and pear flavors prior to a wave of mustiness, bland corriander, and unpleasant bitterness. Light bodied; lots of carbonation on the palate, very lively. An average flavored Witbier; nothing that really pleasantly stands out.

when I got this beer first I noticed that it was slightly warmer than the other beers. I don't mind the beer being warmer, but this one wasn't overly special. It had a nice spicy/yeasty smell to it, but it really didn't have enough carbonation. The beer tasted fine, but about half way through the pint it was practically flat. It was just ok.
