Poured into a large tulip, Heyday sports a little bit of fine creamy head, and appears a hazy yellow/gold. Aroma is mostly of earthy orange peel/coriander and slightly milky. A few sips reveal a pleasant sweetness and yeast complexity, mingling with a nice bit of carbonation to cut thru and finish cleanly. Medium bodied, but finishes pretty clean. Not a very exciting Wit, but it's well made and I don't notice any big flaws in it. If witbier is your thing then it's worth a try.

Having this in a nonic pint. Pours a pearly yellow (wife said it's almost green), with no major head, light visible suspension, and kindof an oily look to the surface. Not too much to be said for the appearance, though I do give it points for some haze. Smells yeasty and funky, maybe some light lemon zest, not getting a lot off the nose, I must say. Watery, saggy mouthfeel, not much flavor, almost seems a little flat. Has a little zest to it and a medium to light sweetness, but just tastes like a watered down beer or maybe even lemonade to me. Was expecting something like a Hoegaarden but this beer does not come close. I think this is the second season they've done it and I hope it's the last. GD: give this one the boot and make a real wheat. Waste of a seasonal spot.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Bees wax yellow with a healthy dose of macro-effervesce. Clarity is clear, the head is eggshell white, lightly creamy, one finger standing with a good sense of retention. Decent sheet lacing.

S: Small dose of funk, wheat, lightly dry tart citrus, dried corn with an overall light delivery.

T: Citrusy, flowery green hops and wheat, a bit spicy, buttery banana, tangerine with a hint of funky tropical fruitiness in passing. Dry wheat backing, light tart finish.

M: Crisp carbonation, foams up a bit, light bodied with a slippery texture.

O: Overall smooth drinking with a spicy bite.
