Served in a pint glass.

APPEARANCE

This beer pours a very hazy golden-orange color. It had very little head, an what head was there disappeared in a hurry. It looks pretty typical of the style.

SMELL

This smells extremely refreshing. Lots of very refreshing orange zest in the aroma. It's also got a nice bit of lemon and grass. A little bit of spicy yeast, as well as some nice malty sweetness. There's even a tad of caramel at the end. It smells wonderful!

TASTE

Quite a bit sweeter than expected. The bright orange zest from the nose doesn't translate to the tongue, but there is a nice orange flavor that remains. There's a good bit of earthiness, and some of the Belgian yeast character. There's a very slight bitterness roght at the end.

MOUTHFEEL

Fuller-bodied than expected, but it's got a slightly dry finish. It's definitely easy-drinking, and I could drink a few of these at a sitting without flinching. It's not as refreshing as it smelled, but it is a nice drinking beer for sure.

OVERALL

This is a really nice beer! It's probably my favorite Wit that I've had so far. I'm honestly not a big fan of the style, but I would definitely drink this beer again. I got this as an extra in a trade, and I'm glad that this was thrown in. Good stuff!

Cheers.

Very solid Wit Beer. Not as good as Allagash, but better than most.

A: Cloudy, pale lemon body, that needs an aggressive pour to fully form its intense fine bubbled, lasting and lacing head.

S: Soft and muted, but no false notes. Very belgian in style with flower blossoms, orange, coriander, yeast against sugar cookie backdrop.

T: Follows the smell but more intense. I didnt mind the double strength. Big wit, filled with citrus flower blossoms, lemon peel, perfume, spice, yeast, coriander, and plenty of pepper in the finish. Pleasing. Clean.
MF: More body seems to come with the alcohol, but refreshing and good food beer. More serious than most wits.

Must try.

Thanks to some friends, I went through a couple sixers of this last week on vacation in Riverhead.

This wit looks exactly as I hope, traditional in every sense. It's a very pale white gold color with a light haziness through the body. The head is ivory white, soft, fluffy and dense, and it stands just over one finger tall. It lowers but very slowly, staying firm enough that it holds up for the duration and leaves behind plenty of patching and webbing as it does.
The nose is nice, with a soft spiciness, plenty of coriander and a clove-like note along with white pepper, orange zest, and a touch of lemon along with some herb over a base of dry malts like cracked wheat.
The flavor brings everything out even more; this is a great witbier at about double strength, and I can't help thinking they got exactly what they were going for. I'm not sure what more people could expect out of this beer. It's not perfect, but it is fantastic.
The flow is excellent, and there's a fluffy, creamy softness that keeps up in the light-medium body all the way. Each sip is bright, zesty and crisp while being completely smooth as well.
