This pours a hazy golden with a nice cap of clouds.

There’s an almost-honeydew melon character balanced with a big kick of floral funky esters on the nose. This translates into something with a snappy bitterness, some peppery kick, a bit of lemon on the finish, and a greener, drying hop character that lingers. Tasty, and interesting.

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.

12 oz bottle poured into Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A - Pours a semi-hazy yellow straw color with one finger of off white head that dissipates to 1cm.

S - Grapefruit and lemon are at the forefront of the aroma. There is a hint of Belgian yeast.

T - Grapefruit hops are prominent, followed by lemon and a hint of orange. I taste a good amount of Belgian yeast. There is also a smooth wheat flavor. This is somewhat dry and slightly bitter.

M - Thin-to-moderate body with moderate-to-high carbonation. It's crisp and refreshing with a nice citrusy aftertaste.

O - A pretty good hybrid of a Belgian IPA and witbier. This is great for the summer, as it is light and refreshing without being too bitter.
