3.16/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy sandy yellow with a foamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma offers a present but smooth and subtle belgian with some banana, a little hay, hints of orange, spices (clove I think), sugars from the oats alongside the wheat malt. A creamy, velvety, active mouthfeel. Overall, like the addition of the oats in this one a lot, but not a wit fan and this one wasn't able to convert me.

From a 355 ml bottle (dated June 12, 2014) into a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated July 21, 2014.

A-The beer is very light in color with a chill haze. The short white head fades after a minute to a film on the top with a bit of lacing left behind on the glass. There is a stray bubble visible in the beer.

S-The aroma is refreshing, but a touch mixed-up. I sniff some lemon, a vague Belgian-style yeast, orange, bread dough, toast, and a touch of spice.

T-The taste is similar to the smell...pleasant, but somewhat busy. There is orange, spice, and dough like you might expect from a wit, but also some toast flavors and a vague medicinal bitterness. The hoppy flavors taste a bit out of place.

M-The feel is medium to full in body on the palate (for the style) with lower levels of carbonation.

O-This beer is refreshing enough, but I think it tries to do too much. The mixture of hoppy, almost-IPA flavors doesn't jive well with the witbier flavors. That being said, this beer is far from a drain pour and drinks well enough on a hot summer day. I could see this pairing well with Thai food.

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.
