Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a small lemon citrus and a light skunk presence. In the taste, lemon citrus and sweet grassiness. A spice bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer sweet lemon rind citrus in the aftertaste. A nice sweet lemon citrus to a mellow average wit.

11.2 fl oz bottle with no bottled on date present. A friend got this six pack discounted with the purchase of some bottles of Beringer's Pinot Grigio. My first encounter with a beer from France, I believe, and my first time having a beer from this brewery. My bottle is a little different than the one pictured, and is packaged in blue glass.

Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.

A - Pours about two fingers of fizzy white head that dissipates quickly. Body is the color of cloudy murky lemonade reminiscent of a shandy.

S - Smell is of clean wheat and very prominent bright creamy peaches. A light and refreshing smelling beer.

T - Crisp, tart, & fruity. Peaches. Apricot. Lemon. Wheat. Cream. Tastes like an apricot chobani yogurt as a beer. Not detecting any noticeable or distinctive spice characteristic. Perhaps just the faintest hint of brett in the finish.

M - Feel is crisp, tart, dry and with slight bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking.

Overall a beer I would try again. Nothing spectacular and definitely not in the vain of a true witbier but it was refreshing and satisfying.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a standard pressure-cap 11.2oz bottle into a Kronenbourg pint glass. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger white head that sticks around for a minute and a half. Cloudy orange head with decent carbonation.

S- Coriander, citrus and a slight bit of funk.

T- Surprisingly creamy, spices and citrus. Unremarkable.

M- Smooth and bubbly.

O- I am beginning to enjoy witbier less and less. This is just another ho-hum wit.

2.74/5  rDev -19.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

12oz. bottle poured into my 40oz. Brandy Snifter.

A: A hazy, golden colored Wit/Blanc with a very fiercely carbonated head.

S: Scents of an American Wheat or "Original Ale." A zestier lemon scent jumps out. Reminiscent of a boozy Champagne, show Mead, or orange Saison.

T: Heavy lemon rind and coriander. Flavorless bubblegum. Too simple.

M: The heavily carbonated body really made this Wit far too thin, and light. I'm use to having Wits that hit the palate very softly, smoothly, and tend to disappear or even evaporate on the tongue. This was over-carbonated.

OVERALL: It's really not as bad as I described and the bottle design is so shitty that you might just get the idea that this is some cheap beer, but if I reflect on the Revolutionary battles around 1790 and put myself in France, I could enjoy the simplicity of a rind-heavy beer style used as a refresher after a long day. I suppose in that sense, this is well executed, but if you're looking for a quality Witbier, this isn't going to match up with some of the notable greats. Reminds me of Boxcar Brewing's Original Ale.

Poured from a pretty blue 11.2 oz. bottle. Yes, a blue bottle. Has a cloudy yellowish/white color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of citrus, some spices. Taste is good, citrus, some spice, a bit of wheat, refreshing and highly drinkable. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer, the glass is becoming empty quickly.
