I don't know what to say.
It's quite a simple beer, but not a typical one.

In my opinion the beer is all about the flavor—whether you like it or not. It's a nice nice mild citrus taste, without much hops. Overall just a great witbeer in my opinion.

I really loved the taste but everyone's taste may be different. I'm a big fan of stouts, but love this too.

Very refined witbeer, fancy blue bottle to boot. Not much of a witbeer fan but have found this to be in best of that class. Don't hesitate to mix a batch of these into your next social.

Draft at Craft Beer Market.
Slightly hazed, light yellow with a foamy head. Settles down to a thin cap, sporadic laces dots scattered over glass.
Smell has some citrus and light spice.
Taste is pretty thin, lemon citrus and a little spicy yeast at the end.
Lots of carbonation, crisp mouthfeel.
Overall, a pretty average beer, refreshing and easy to drink, but there are much better examples of the style.

I usually don't care for fruity beers, but this one is exceptional. Strong spiced pear and peach in the aroma follows right into the flavor and lasts all the way through. Could have used a little more alcohol, very good overall.

I purchased this at Brass rail deli in a mix-a-six, poured chilled from the cobalt blue bottle into a tumbler.

The color is clear golden with 2 fingers of frothy white with a very fine bead and good retention with thick rings of lace left sticking. The smell has a very citrus dominant almost citronella type lemon/orange scent with slightly sweet aroma. The feel has a very light sweetness with mild carbonation and tangy yeast with juicy citrus sweetness and very dry finish.

The taste is tangy like a lemon soda without the carbonic acid quality, more of a soft citrus flavor with light malt and gentle yeast with subtle grainy flavor and subtle chalky taste in the finish. Overall I consider this okay, not great: basically a wheat beer with citrus taste and a little sweet for me personally and lacks the spice to balance that you expect from a witbier

Poured a cloudy golden body, true to style, with a thin white head, a bit under in fullness for the style. Not bad, but lacking. Scents of lemon juice, light Belgian yeast spiciness, orange zest, hints of clove and lightly sweet malt. Overall impression of aroma is of a very citrus-forward witbier with just a touch of the other aromas of the style. Enticing, yet different. Flavor begins medium sweet with notes of peach, melon and light clove and, light tart wheat and lightly tart orange. This moves into a still medium sweet middle with notes of lightly tart wheat, tart and sweet peach, light clove, orange zest and faint lemon in the background. Finish is lightly sweet with medium notes of clove, orange zest, tart wheat and softly sweet malt with light lemon in the background. Aftertaste is sweet and bready malt and clove. Overall impression of flavor is of a good witbier, but one that is a bit simple and a bit too heavy on citrus without as much malt and yeast character as it should have. Not bad, but lacking a little. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation, light creaminess and a bit of a drying finish. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a good, true to form witbier. Overall this is a good witbier. Better than almost all the American macro examples, not quite as good as Hoegaarden or the craft offerings. Refreshing and pleasant, but not the best in any category. Still worth trying.

This is a solid witbier. It is refreshing, zesty and the citrus flavours seem real, rather than artificial. I'm pleasantly surprised with the overall flavour. Definitely something to add in to the rotation for next summer!
