(Served in a snifter)
It was only served in a snifter becuase they poured the wrong beer.Typically it is poured in an American Pint glass.
A- This beer has a dense hazy lemon yellow body with a snow-white head that last for a few sips. There is an occasional bubble of carbonation that bops out to the edge of the glass where it can be seen gliding up the side to the head.

S- This beer has a soft wheat malt smell with a lemony perfume quality to it that soon overpowers the wheat notes when it warms.

T- The soft white wheat bread note has a club soda note to it that is pleasant followed by a floral yeasty quality. There is a lemony snap that is at the finish.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a soft carbonation fizz at the finish.

D- This is a well built wit beer and I would categorize it as a true Belgian Wit instead of another wheat beer fermented to warm with a hefe-weizen yeast. Which is all to common at many brewpubs I have sampled from.

Really hazy cloudy, almost milky looking. Some nice lace. Weak retention.
Smells and tastes of a lemony citrus note with oranges and some spices.
The body is rather thick for the style... And feels oddly oily.
Overall; meh. Not a very good take on the style. It just misses the mark a bit for me, but isn't entirely undrinkable.

A- Pours a very very very light yellow. Fair amount of haze. Big white head lasts fairly well with a good bit of lacing.
S- The smell is lemony wheat with a prevailing bubblegummy aroma.
T- The bandaid/bubblegum flavor is a bit too strong. I'd like to see more spice or lemon. That comes through, but not as strong as it should be.
M- Relatively active carbonation. Sits a little more firm on the tongue than the average wit.
O- Nothing really technically wrong with this beer, but my subjective tastes just aren't high on the bubblegum/bandaid quality that is so prevelant in this one.

Freshness: Unknown
Packaging: Draft
Glassware: Pilsner glass
Purchased: On tap at Rock Bottom, Denver Airport

A cloudy, straw yellow color. The small head leaves a good amount of lace.

Aromas are of citrus (lemon and orange), plus coriander and a light cereal maltiness.

Taste is fruity, with lemon and orange flavors. Lightly sweet and also tangy. The body is light with an average amount of carbonation. Finishes with a light amount of sweetness and bitterness.

Overall a refreshing brew, but it didn't seem very flavorful.

Rock Bottom Belgian White: On tap at the Rock Bottom in the Minneapolis airport. It’s hard to review a beer when you are drinking socially with a group, but this beer left a favorable impression, so let’s go for it. Clear amber body indicates that this is a filtered wheat. Not much of a head on this brew, and aroma has a good citrus fragrance to it. Pretty bold flavor for a Belgian white. Lots of malt comes though, with citrus and honey layered in giving a nice complexity overall. If you like Belgian style whitbeer, this is a good American twist on the style.
