2.35/5 rDev -36.1%
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with paler straw-like edges and a half finger foam head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind.
Floral earthy hop aroma with hints of grass and soil countered by subtle citrus, bready yeast and pale malt. The hop profile is one dimensional and lacking in the citrus quality that the label promises. Mostly grassy and resinous with faint lemon pith character. The wheat malts are pretty faint as well with subtle hints of bread and banana. Pale biscuit like malts are more prominent.
Light body with spritzy carbonation and strong earthy hop bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes into a very dry finish. Dry and slightly sticky with lots of earthy soil and grassy pine needle flavor. There's also some zesty spice that gives off some peppery coriander flavor. A bit more citrus character than in the nose but it seems like it's coming more from the wheat beer portion than the hop profile. Some bready yeast and biscuit malt followed by tart lemon juice and sourdough bread. Overall, I wasn't a fan of this beer. It's lacking in complexity and the flavors clash with each other making it kind of harsh and tough to drink.

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.

3.15/5 rDev -14.4%
12oz bottle. Pours a somewhat hazy pale straw color with a very small head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is spicy and herbal hops along with some breadiness and hints of ctirus. The taste is an odd mix of what i can only describe as dill and olive oil Triscuits. I love that flavor of Triscuits but in a beer it is somewhat less appetizing. Some spicy and herbal hop notes at the finish. Not much else going on here except for that dill and olive oil Triscuits taste. Light mouthfeel with not much of an alcohol presence. Overall, I won't be buying this agin.
