A: Very cloudy pale yellow, white head with polka-dotted lacing. Plentiful loose bubbles. Foggy residue is apparent at the end of the glass.

S: Wheat, orange peel, lots of spice, with a touch of sharp funk permeating everything.

T: Orange juice with a solid backbone of spice; the spice is assertive but heavy handed and not very balanced, the coriander is heated almost like cinnamon. Still, very flavorful, very refreshing, and overall pretty well constructed.

M: Possibly slightly flat, but light bodied and easy drinking.

O: A witbier with an original character: one that is not timid with the spices. You judge whether that's for better or worse.

Serving type: growler

On tap at Clybourn brewpub.
A-Extremely pale and clear with a ringing white foam.
S-Yes this is a Belgian wit. This one has a lemony estery yeasty quality. Light on the clean grain.
T-More like Hoegaarden than Blue Moon....lemon esters vs. orange.
M-Thin bodied with high carbonation.
O-This is an extremely drinkable wit. Crisp, clean and tasty. Can't ask for much more. Very well done. Probably my favorite beer of the night.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Thin head on a cloudy straw colored body. Nice lacing. Strong lemon custard aroma with grain and pale malt musty notes. Flavor is more bland with club soda, grain, pale malts and little else. Light body and high carbonation. This one tastes like club soda. Not one of the better beers from this brewey.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in a willibecher at the Clybourn brewpub.

Let's keep the lightness flowing, shall we? This stuff pours a hazy pale straw topped by over a finger of white froth. The nose comprises wheat, light black pepper, light orange zest, very light lemon zest, and a kiss of coriander. The taste brings in more of the same, with the lemon and coriander really taking stronger roles. The body is pretty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta grainy feel. Overall, a generally enjoyable wit, nothing outstanding, but eminently drinkable.
