S - Poured in a pint glass from the bottle

A - Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a creamy two-finger head. Be sure to stir up the sediment that has settled to the bottom of your bottle to enjoy everything this great beer has to offer!

S - Strong aroma on this one, heavy on the coriander and orange peel. Also clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

T - Nice blend of orange and very mild lemony zest coupled with a good balance of those same herbs and spices (clove, coriander, etc) encountered in the aroma. The mouthfeel is oh, soooo smooth and with a lingering sensation of cinnamon and orange peel. Very smooth and tasty.

O - A deceptively complex beer whose taste lives up to its appearance. Flavorful and refreshing, very easy to take healthy pulls so your taste buds can enjoy this one. It will leave you wanting more!

Poured a crystal clear amber color with massive white puffy head,
Smell is loaded with spices, combining a nice mixture of cloves and corriander.
Taste matches the smell wiith distinct notes of corriander and cloves. Some citrus flavors also evident.
Nice, long-lingering mouth feel.
A very well made beer. Great example of the style. Superior drinkability.

This beer poured with a 3/4 inch head that lasted throughout the pint. It has a cloudy orange cream color. This brew has a citrus smell with hints of bread and spices. The taste matches the smell with a yeasty wheat flavor matched by an orange kick. This is one of my favorite beers from the Point Brewery. I give it two thumbs up!

Coriander and citrus peel (mainly lemon, some orange, even some grapefruit) greet you in the nose of Point's White Biere. It offers the typical appearance of a Belgian witbier, and the creamy bright-white head holds well and leaves some nice, thin but sticky lace behind. The body is light-medium, and it's gently crisp on the palate with a median carbonation. The flavor is not unlike the aroma, and it's initially gently sweet with malt before the tanginess and citrus flavor (orange, lemon) kicks in. The coriander appears across the middle, followed by a chalkiness that leads into a dry and gently spicy finish. Very nicely done, it's properly delicate but flavorful, and remarkably well-balanced and drinkable. A very nice example of the style.

This beer pours a very pale, slightly cloudy yellow with a fair, but shortly lived head that, when it dies (and it does), leaves a little lacing. For any other style this would be a bad thing.

The smell is sweet, adjunct and citrusy. I can also smell the wheat.

The taste is slightly hoppy. I can definately taste lemon. It is also very spicy. There is also the very present burn and taste of orange peel. The burn sticks around long after you're done too.

The mouthfeel is a little thick with and has a wheat bread after taste residue.

The drinkability could be better. During a long chug all the tastes come together to lower the drinkability. However if you let it warm up it does get a little smoother. This is not a bad version of the style.

This is a pretty decent wit at a very good price. Pours to a very light and clear yellow color with a thin wispy head. Lacing could be better. Carbonation is adequate. Lacks the haziness a witbier should have, thus it is not very "white."

The aroma cannot hide the cheap malt bill, though the spicing makes up for it. Very nice coriander and orange peel aroma. Very zesty. Hint of lemon and more spices.

The taste is surprisingly quite good. Sweet and spicy with banana and clove along with orange and lemon zest. Very quenching for a hot summer day.

Despite being a light and filtered witbier, this beer actually has some body to it. Or maybe it's just the carbonation giving my tongue a good spritzing. Either way it's good and very drinkable.

For $4.99 a six-pack this beer is pretty damn good.
Pours an opaque light yellow with not much head to speak of.
Smells of coriander and orange peel slightly phenolic.
Taste is pretty smooth with a nice spiciness, hint of orange peel and again slightly phenolic.
High level of carbonation makes for a nice feeling in the mouth.
Drinkability on this one is pretty high. Goes down real smooth.

A - Best part of the brew it pours a hazy golden straw color with a nice inch of creamy foamy head.

S - Smells about right. I get orange peal, coriander, and maybe a slight bit of lemon.

T - I did enjoy it but the yeast level was kind of high in this Witbier. Still orange peal and spices made their way through. It drank rather well.

M - Light to medium.

Overall I like the style and find this to be a very drinkable beer. Glad I have 3 more in my variety pack.

Tasted on 5/12/05 at Bricks (Beer Bar) in Cedar Rapids, IA.

Nice hazy white-ish straw with a white head. Nice light coriander and orange peel aroma and flavor. Light bodied but smooth and refreshing. A fine although simple representaion of the style.

One of SP's better beers from my experience so far...

A great effort from a regional brewer. Sampled from a 12 ounce bottle I received as a gift from a Wisconsin traveler. Pours a nice hazy gold with a medium white head and full carbonation. Nice spice in the nose with modest yeast in the background. Nice crispness to the flavor has some sweetness that is quickly balanced with dryness. Body dries out nicely to a slightly chalky finish. Very refreshing.
