Had this one on tap at the brewery's 3rd anniversary party.

A - Pours a hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head.

S - Lots of coriander spice and citrus with some floral and grassy notes.

T - I love witbiers beers and this one just didn't do it for me. Had a strong coriander and orange citrusy bite and not much wheat.

M&D - Light and crisp mouthfeel, refreshing summertime beer. Just not that great tasting.

Don't go out of your way for this one if you're a fan of the style. (485 characters)

On tap at the Blind Tiger, in NYC (god I love being able to type that again..) Typical witte presentation, cloudy, yellowy, with a white tight knit head, showing better then average retention and a nice amount of lacing. The expected lemony, citrus nose with a hint of yeastyness. Crisp and refreshing offering, more lemon, wheat malt in the back ground. Yummy new offering from the good Captain. (396 characters)

Appearance: 1 inch head, clear, gold in color, high carbonation,

Smell: orange, lemon, lots of fresh citrus

Taste: orange, lemon, lots of fresh citrus--slight earthy hops

Mouthfeel: sweet with light bitterness, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: Very juicy and citrusy beer that is balanced well. One of the better offerings I have had from Captain Lawrence's small bottles. Wish I found a full six of this. (420 characters)

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Assuming the bottle isnt supposed to say "witte" anywhere on it?

A: Pours a cloudy pale golden with a somewhat thick one finger head. The head is white and sticks around for a bit leaving some lacing on the glass. Lots of visible carbonation as tiny bubbles.

S: Certainly hops, this has a nice fresh aroma to it. A blend of floral and citrus with a touch of pine. Seems to dominate the wheat, which I dont mind.

T: The wheat does come through more on the taste but is still a bit overshadowed with the ample hop dosage this brew has. Aftertaste is a mix of citrus and pale malts. On the hoppier end for not being labeled an IPA.

M: A pretty crisp and refreshing beer. Ample carbonation and a mostly clean finish. I guess the hops provide a bit of stickiness but its quite acceptable for the amount of hop flavor.

Overall Captain Lawrence strikes again. I have been impressed with their selection and would recommend to anyone into American Pale Wheat Ales. (998 characters)

On tap at The Ginger Man. Wheat aroma. Pale yellow cidery colour with some lace. Nicely drinkable, a bit astringent citrus, even some hop but also well malted finish.Subtle spice: corriander. Refreshing summer beer. Mineral water carbonation, average or above mouthfeel. (270 characters)

On-tap at the brewery

Immediately reminds me of Victory's Whirlwind Wit for the juicy flavors and light body. This beer, however, comes off a bit more satisfying thanks to the shot of citrus in the taste. There's a lot that's traditional about this beer in the easy mouthfeel and coriander flavor, but a little kick of American hops gives this beer a nice twist. Still pretty Belgian, but not quite. Worth a try if you're into wit's. (434 characters)
