2.5/5  rDev -32.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint.

A - Hazy banana yellow, with a one-finger, white head of even size bubbles.

S - Strong aroma of grapefruit, Belgian yeasts, and clove.

T - "Grapefruit forward" would be a colossal understatement; it's almost like a mix between beer and grapefruit juice. Some clove and cracked pepper in the mid-palate. No malts anywhere to be tasted. Finishes with an almost chemical tasting astringency. A mind-numbingly simple beer that gets tired after a few sips.

M - Light bodied, almost to the point of being watery. Acidic. Did not mesh particularly well with the taste in my opinion.

O - A real misfire here. If this is what "dwarf hops" taste like then maybe SN should stick with the fully grown variety.

3.68/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a - pale orangey gold with a thick white head

s - clean lemon and grapefruit

t - complex lemon flavors, woody, and light. Citrus linger. Good amount of hops, but doesn't ruin the Wit flavor or overpower it.

m - moderately full, nice coating in the mouth lingers

o - I really like this style, this is a very good American made Wit, and the hops make a great addition to the style. The flavors are refreshing and complex.
