Hazy pale golden glow with about a finger and a half of solid bright white head. Subdued nose of floral and citrus hops with a bit of belgian with fruity influence.

Pretty tightly flavored beer in all the right places. A little spicy up front with delicate citrus and floral flavors throughout. Wheat adds subtle sweetness along with a creamy mouthfeel that allows for crisp carbonation that doesn't break up the medium sized body. Finishes with an almost minty presence as the wheat and hop flavors collide and a delicate bitterness that builds with each sip. Raw leafy hop flavors faintly linger in the mouth. A very nice beer with well blended flavors that are very tightly nit and that go together well. Clean and refreshing enough for a wit beer lover and hoppy enough to appease the hop head. Alcohol barely detectable but it is a bit pricey. (849 characters)

Served on draft. Clear golden orange body with a fluffy white head. Aromas of piney hops, some citrus, clove and yeast esters. Bitter, grassy hops up front followed by a slight orange peel character. Faint clove/yeast notes, but it certainly drinks more towards the IPA spectrum than the Witbier. Nice and refreshing. (317 characters)
