A - Pours clear straw yellow, with very thin white head. Heavy carbonation noticeable in the glass. Mild lacing.
S - Smells of sweet malts. Notes of lemon, banana, bread dough, and some metallic undertones.
T - Tastes of citrus fruits and spices; Lemon, orange, pepper.
M - Light mouthfeel, with generous carbonation. Not quite as crisp as I'd expect form this style, though.
D - A nice, light brew. Enjoyable, but not one I would seek out again.

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.

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.
