A - Light hazy orange, with red tint. Small foam head

S - Floral up front with strawberry bubblegum and slight esters in the nose. Light lemon as well.

T - Lemon, light elder flower, grassy, strawberry, bubblegum, orange zest

MF - Light carbonation, creamy medium body that fills the mouth. Light spice lingers on the tongue in the finish

O - A nice fruity Saison that has a strawberry presence that you don't find too often. Not great but worth it if you can find it

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has a hazy deep yellow body with a gentle carbonation and a sticky thick white foam that last a good bit.

S- The soft yeasty character has some bright fruity esters but is otherwise pretty clean.

T- The soft fruit flavor blends with pears and apricot notes and a yeast character that taste soapy as it warms. There is a dry cracker malt note underneath and a soft ginger spice note in the finish.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a soft prick of fizz in the finish and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- There is a nice ginger note in the finish that combines with the fruity character making this beer subtle but easy to sip.

On tap at Wriggleyville. I like to try this style, as I often get something a little interesting. This was brewed with a Mexican celebrity chef. Very mild flavours, nondescript. A little fruit, a tad of spice. Cloudy body. Soft mouthfeel.Turn up the spice.

Appearance: Served on tap in a Collins glass. Looks very much like iced tea, especially with some fruit juice mixed in, specifically cranberry and orange.

Smell: Very faint smell of orange and some floral herbs. A bit too subdued.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Initially tastes like iced tea sweetened with pear. Then the orange juice comes into the play, which transitions nicely into a faint pine hop bite in the finish. Great balance and transition. Starts smooth with pear and finishes crisp with the pine.

Overall Drinkability: Another very impressive Belgian by Goose Island. Paired perfectly with an enormous porkchop and red cabbage with feta.

Had on tap in Chicago- pours a clear golden straw color, nice creamy 1.5 finger head, decent retention, nice delicate lacing. Good lookin.

Smells like a wit- wheat is the predominant scent, with overtones of tangerine peel and coriander.

Taste is consistent with smell- lots of round wheat flavor, - good amount of tangerine, a little coriander, finished sweet. A little yeast but not much.

Very drinkable of course- light body, light to moderate carbonation. This is pretty interesting- I don't usually like wits but this one is nice.

Thanks Dave for sharing this one fresh off the line.
Review from written notes.

Served in a tulip glass. Pale orange, bright clarity, soapy white foam that steadily remains in place. Some spotty lacing clings to the inside of the glass.

Floral and mildly sweet aroma, honey and hibiscus, herbal also.

Simple flavors of honey malt sweetness, sweetly floral hibiscus, Belgian yeast lending some mild fruity notes. Light bodied, easy drinking, seems tailored to pair with food (makes sense as this is a Rick Bayless collaboration). It's good, though a bit plain and unexciting. You'd think there'd be some unusual latin spices going on with this, though it comes off more as a sweet Belgian Pale.
