3.5/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Part of a sampler pack, but is Upland's #1 selling beer.
A - Slightly cloudy golden yellow. Not as cloudy as some Wits. Light white head that subsides quickly. No lacing.
S - Phenolic with some wheat yeast aroma. Some light grain tone there too.
T - Typical phenolic clove flavor with yeast, bread, and wheat character on top. Also has subtle hints of coriander and tart orange that come to taste after the clove. Some sweetness with the spiciness but without bitterness. Spice from the phenolic covers dominate. A standard Belgian wit.
M - Light mouth-feel. Has light carbonation. light body make this brew refreshing with a dry, tart finish.
Overall, this is a nice summer brew when it's too hot for a heavier beer. Seemingly a run of the mill Belgian wit but obviously has a following if it's Upland's "bread winner". I would drink it again but not going to be high on my list of choices.

On tap at Norse Bar in Chicago.
A: Cloudy, bright yellow with about a finger of foamy, white head.
S: Banana, some lemon, and very pronounced yeast.
T: Clean and crisp, but overly bready. Really no other interesting flavors present to give this beer any sort of character.
M: Light and moderately carbonated.
O: Overall, this beer is quite refreshing, though I wish it tasted like something, anything, to make me want to drink it again.

On tap in Bloomington.
A: Pale gold color with about two fingers of head. Very effervescent
S: Little to nothing. Maybe some corn and malts? Maybe?
T: Has a carbonated malty sweet lead. There really isn't much to balance out the sweetness.
M: it's fizzy fresh and peppy. Maybe the best thing going.
Overall a fairly lousy brew
