Great Beer while on vacation

This beer probably gets some extra points as every thing taste better on vacation.

Pours nice and the color is on the money for the style.

The taste is well balanced and surprised me that the taste was very on the traditional Belgium style Wit and not your normal American Wheat beers.

Nice flavors and the lime twist was very subtle and works well with a nice smell

I had low expectations when I bought this beer but was very surprised on how good good it was.. Well done!!

Found on tap throughout the Keys. Had it at the Island Grill on Islamorada. Paired with seared ahi dinner. Great beer for sea food.

Found the beer to be very drinkable. Excellent choice for after a hot day on the water. Poured cloudy yellow - definitely unfiltered. Head was nice and fluffy although an orange slice killed the head immediately. On the second round I skipped the orange (beer does not need it). Head had good retention. Has a very nice aroma - there's a lot going on. The orange and lime fought for my attention but turns out to be a nice touch, the lime that is. Just enough coriander creates a nice balance of spice and citrus. Good to the last drop - sediment and all.

Found the bottle in local supermarket. Very good from bottle exceptional from tap.

Wit brewed with Real Key-Lime
12oz->Saison Dupont glass

A ~ Quite an aggressive pour yielding a 1/4" of head
in an effervescent ring. Slightly murky orange with a brown tone.

S ~ Good punch of tangy yeast with the key-lime coming through rather nicely...hint of spice (coriander)

T ~ Very spirited, subtle flavors: A touch of key-lime, touch of pear, touch of sun-kissed grain/malt & a touch of spice all on a lovely soft body of mellow citrus-peel & yeast. Wonderful.

M ~ Nice balance! Malt does not attack the palette one bit & the addition of key lime was very refreshing & pleasantly tart.

D ~ Was extremely surprised by this one. Would not expect a beer representing Key West to be true to form. Extremely delicious, should be seeked out.

cheers!

Pours an apropriately cloudy straw yellow with a big fluffy white head.

The smell is full of spicy corriander, some fresh grain, a little must, and a nice hint of orange and key limes.

This is a fairly well-executed wit with classic spice and citrus flavors augmented by the key limes. I really like what the key limes do in this brew.

The feel is light and full. Very refreshing.

I came into this not really expecting much. The brewery has a reputation for "meh" beers and I thought this would be no exception. I was pleasantly surprised that I couldn't find a single thing wrong with this beer. Overall it was solid, not mindblowing, but solid.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with a fluffy white head that provided some nice lacing.

Nose is lime, wheat and citrus

Taste is wheat, citrus & lime

Mouth feel is light, but it's a wheat beer.

Very drinkable wheat beerr, especially on a hot summer day.

A very nice wheat beer with a lime twist

Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue IX:

Nothing wrong with having a gimmicky theme to a beer; and the whole Key West/key lime thing in a Belgian Wheat sounds terrific.

A good, healthy dose of white lacing rims the glass and sticks like a champ. Hazy pale golden yellow is par for the style. Pleasant aroma--a touch soapy from the spices with a hint of lime peel, though nothing new or out of place and it seems to fit very well. Very smooth with a tight crispness in the back end; moderate sized body. A light lime flavor throughout, coriander and orange peel are very flavorful, faintly soapy, but the modest hop bitterness and flavor cleans that up. A slight bready tone, clean and a little doughy but light as well. Finishes with a citric--both orange and lime--and earthy mineral twang with some orange sweetness and dry malt, making for an interesting aftertaste.

This beer works! Great balance between hops, malt and spicing, as well as the lime. Easy to drink, though one bottle was good enough.

Pours a hazy golden wheat beer color with foamy white head that falls slow to almost nothing. Minimal lace.

Smells like a typical wheat. Hops and citrus.

Nice taste. Citrus, especially lime comes through at the end.

Rather full in the mouth with the right amount of carbonation.

Easy drinking beer. Much enjoyed.

I purchased this beer at a Total Wine shop in Fort Myers, Florida.

Appearance: Poured a pale copper color with a small, thick head.

Smell: Subtle fruit smell with minimal hops aroma.

Taste: Slight hops and mildly sweet. Also can taste the yeast. Goes very well with fish.

Mouthfeel: Full without being too thick.

Drinkability: Very subtle alcohol with a full taste makes this a great drinking beer.
