Got a sample bottle from a sales rep poured into a pint glass.... Appearance and tastes were on par wit others reviews but the smell was terrible... Mine smelled just like a dead skunk... I don't know what happened but I was very off put by the smell

On tap, appears in standard witbier color garb, pale murky straw with some white foamy head. One is immediately struck by the pungent sweetness on the nose, a strong corn sweetness accompanied by fruity bubblegum and light tangy citrus. The palate is more of the same, lemon-lime, Juicyfruit gum, and buttery sweet corn with almost a tobacco perfume. Minimal spice for the style. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth but finish is mild acid, faint woody and grassy hop extract, little in the way of lingering bitterness but rather a sour finish. The citrus is too muted but the total picture was better than expected and quite refreshing. Not a must have but won't waste your time or savage your palate on a nice hot day.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Aw, my bottle isn't all white and stuff...but it is cobalt blue! Silver linings, people... Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy straw topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises dry wheat, light coriander, mild lemon peel, Indian corn, and an odd funkiness I can't quite put my tongue's finger on. The taste brings in more of the same, with a slightly brighter lemon component and a stronger bit of corn, which is now more sweet than Indian. The body straddles the border between hefty light and light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a mostly smooth feel. Overall, this is a nice enough wit, I suppose, but that corniness doesn't help anybody, and that strange semi-funk in the smell is a bit off-putting. It's not all bad, but it's not good, either.

Poured from an 11.2oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy, pale straw color, with a big cloud deck of white foam.
Aroma-Wheat, citrus notes
Taste-Pale wheat, faint citrus zest, light-bodied. Refreshing and quaffable if a bit lacking in the substance department.

On tap served in a pint glass.

A--Very hazy, bright yellow (although that may be exaggerated b/c it was backlit by the sun). Nice head
S--Quite citrusy. Lemony with a little orange.
T--Follows the smell perfectly. A whole lotta lemon. Almost like a summer shandy (of which I am not a fan), but I really liked this. Crisp & clean, refreshing.
M--Crisp & light. Bubbly & quenching, left a quick but nice aftertaste.
O--An excellent one if you're having more than one on a summer day. I had two at my local beergarden with dinner and give it two thumbs up. Possibly better than other reviews b/c I had it on tap vs. bottle like many others here. I'm planning on getting a case next week.

1664 Blanc. In a bottle, pours with a rich foam head but the color has a weird tone to it Almost greenish. Smells very grapefruity with lots of coriander. Tastes very sweet and fruity. The grapefruit is almost over powering. Drinks smootg. Nice summer wit if your looking for something different.
