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.
