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.

If you like a wit this is a great refreshing example of the style.

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.

Big, bristling foam that leaves a thin veil in the St. Bernardus globe. This settles down to a very wheat and malty brew. It's almost rich, and definitely more robust than the typical Witbier. Intriguing funky aroma with a whiff of fermenting cider.

Very spritzy on the tongue but mellow and even fruity. Overall, this tastes more like a light Saison, with the big fruity and yeasty flavor. The spice is not so noticeable, though it's the same orange-coriander combo of the style. Some Hefeweizen estery notes and a dry, yeasty finish. Tremendously drinkable and more complex than I expected at first sip.

It cost ten bucks for the 750 ml bottle, which is silly for a Wit, but then it's imported from Texas. Purchased at Liticker's Liquors in San Diego, and I'm sure their Adelbert's beers have been on the shelf for months if not a couple years, but this one has survived in very good form.

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.

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.

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.
