3.98/5  rDev +17.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The pour, was lemon-yellow, white head fading into yellowish, fine-textured lacing. Matched the decor in my Fort Myers hotel quite nicely.

I detect a lot of citrus and faint whisps of coriander and other spices, but the aroma isn't particularly strong. Now, for the flavor - I am always on the lookout for a well-balanced, lime-themed craft beer; I prayed that this was no craft Bud Light Lime nonsense.

The first few sips seemed to suggest my worst fears - I alluded to a mixture of 2/3 complex witbier diluted with a 1/3 portion of the previously mentioned Bud atrocity. But this was too quick and judgmental a conclusion, and further into the bottle, I appreciate the witbier for what it is. The lime is about as bold as my personal taste allows, which is excellent by me; but the qualities of the witbier, and a smooth finish, with citrus peel and a mild hop bite, generates a balance that is better than expected. The sensation is complex even if the palate can't seem to name more than the few dominant flavors.

Lime is a worthy ingredient in beer; the nature and tartness of the flavor makes it challenging to balance against beer's traditional ingredients. Yet, this does so in a novel and refreshing way - I was pleasantly surprised.

3.05/5  rDev -10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

This beer claims to be a Belgian tyle witbier. Unfortunately, while a decent American wheat, it isn't a witbier

A: pours a cloudy, light straw color appropriate for a wit. The head quickly disappears, leaving no cap nor lacing.

S: clean wheat. No spice nor citrus

T: clean wheat. None of the advertised lime or spice,

M: average

O: okay for American wheat beer style, not remotely like Belgian witbier.
