I admit I approached this with some trepidation when I read on the label that it was brewed " with grapefruit peel and chamomile." But I plunged ahead and poured it into my standard Troeg's pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy light gold and left a modest head and some residual lacing. An attractive beer.
Smell is subdued, I get a little citrus but that's about it.
Taste is very pleasant, very light. A bit of citrus and a hint of pepper.
Mouthfeel is crisp and finishes well.
Drinkability is fine. The bottle lists no ABV but this is no alcohol bomb - probably in line with the style around 5%.
I really liked this beer. It's nothing pretention.Just a good light summer thirst quencher. Good job, Philadelphia Brewing.

3.34/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Foggy yellow-orange creme color with a dry cakey head. Looks good as a witbier.
Diminutive nose with creamy yeast, citrus lite, wafery wheat malt, and faint banana. A little bit on the creamcicle side, but much drier.
Kind of good, kind of boring. Thinned-out flavors with a good amount of wheat, dry spice, and a snippet of melony orange. Tastes a little bit like the bitter part of canteloupe meat close to the rind. Hints of vanilla cake icing, a pinch of coriander, and herbal notes. My girlfriend is kind of right, it does tastes like watered down orange juice. Maybe, a little champagne-y Very mild bitterness comes somewhat late.
Good body. Carbonation is a little weak.
A half-ass job with good prospects.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Low head. Medium low carb. Small white foam ring. Nice bright gold color with a solid haze. Definitely could go for some more carbonation, else it's nice.
S: Sweet yeast. Banana and lemon. Cloves. Hints of mango and papaya.
T: Pineapple, wheat. Mild flavor of saltines. Cloves and banana again. Juicy and tropical and fruity. Floral with rose petal and cherry blossom.
M: Slightly viscous. Medium body. Nothing spectacular.
O: Overall one of the better wits I've had. Has a lot of character, and a lot of flavor , but still refreshing.
