Pours a clear, golden color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of coriander, orange, hint of hop, slight yeast, slight sweet malt, and a hint of pale malt. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of orange, coriander, sweet malt, slight pale malt, and a hint of hop. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, good feel, and decent blend. Still, nothing special as a Witibier.

After a long day of pheasant hunting, it's time for a relaxing wit. I'd also like to say if you're watching your weight this Wit only has 140 calories. Score.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle poured into 16 oz glass

Appearance (3.75) : An aggressive pour yields a fluffy two fingered head on top of a slightly hazy golden yellow body. Lacing is left and the head recedes fairly quickly.

Aroma (4) : Wheat, lots of wheat. Some orange slice, coriander, spice, salt. I want to say it's a little sour smelling but it's more fresh than anything. Nice touch.

Taste (4) : I will never turn down any wit and this is no exception. It's got a robust peppery wheat flavor with hints of coriander, rice, and orange peel. Some sharp cheddar notes faintly add to the bite and is left lingering on the finish. Yeah, the "sharp cheddar" some would say is very weird in a wit but strangely, it fits. I won't knock it. Unique take on the witbier.

Mouthfeel (3) : Mouthfeel is where it falls short unfortunately. It fits the flavor but it's far from creamy or full. It's more like a lager, primarily adopted from Shiner's Premium Beer. It's very carbonated and light bodied. It ends slightly musky and dry but not enough of that characteristic to drag it out of lager territory. Gonna have to dock it some here.

Overall (3.92) : The aroma, appearance, and taste are great. It went down easy and was flavored uniquely. The mouthfeel falls short but that's not a huge problem for me. The main difference here between this and other wits is that it's got a peppery feel to the wheat taste and the musky sharp cheddar dryness. I'd drink it again, and it's a good Wit if you're not too picky. I'd like another actually.
