3.65/5 rDev -3.9%
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.

4.09/5 rDev +7.6%
A: Lighter, and mildly transparent gold in color .There is a two finger frothy head.
S: Smells like a classic IPA, a strong hop presence, with a little tinge of Belgian Wit added in. I also smell spicy esters as well as fruity esters.
T: The wheat malts give it a softer, more delicate taste, but the hops take over with an aggressive flavor.
M: Once again, the wheat malts make for a smoother mouth feel, but then the hops take over. This beer has a nice, medium body.
O: This is a great beer. I am not keen to drink Belgian Wits, but this is bomb. Drink it in the summer!
