look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Cloudy but an attractive shade of light amber in the Westons cider glass. Lovely foam. Quite dry with a fragrant flowery aroma. A spritzy mouthfeel that adds to the refreshing quality.

Some malty richness with a thinner kind of body, along with a tart, dry fruitiness. There is a pear skins taste and that unusual elderflower flavor that seems to have a little pollen flavor, some honey, and a cidery tang. Some bitterness at the finish with tart blackberry notes.

The last pour with more yeast swirled up is more on the sweet side. Delicious stuff, and an exemplary Wit with a tangy flavor and restrained spices. From the 16 oz can bought at the Co-op in Mount Vernon, Washington.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours cloudy gold with one finger of white head. Head vanishes in no time and no lacing to be found.
Smell some malts, belgian yeast strain.
Taste is clove banana wheat some fruitiness.
Mouthfeel is fine for the style a bit low on carbonation. Slightly dry bitterness in the finish.
Overall an easy drinking Witbier. Quite a bit lower on the taste sensation than the classic Witbiers from Europe but a fine summer quaff.

A: Hazy, orangish gold. Looks like OJ. Medium carbonation. Almost no head retention.

S: Golden wheat. Mild alcohol and wild yeast notes. Sweet mango an passion fruit.

T: Light wheat notes are the first flavors. Quickly overtaken with a tangy belgium yeastiness. The tanginess has sweet tropical fruit characteristics mostly of passion fruit, but also a little pineapple and kiwi.

M: Nice tanginess that finishes clean and sharp. Full body from the unfiltered wheat.

O: The beer had great flavor, but I didn't really like the other qualities. However taste bears the most weight here. The alcohol smell wasn't great, but I'll happily drink a delicious ugly beer all day.
