it appeared haze yellow typical for the style
very nice head thick clinging to the glass for a little while .
good citrus smell not to heavy.
it had a nice taste lemon and wheat went down nice refreshing not to filling.
the only thing I didn't like was the aftertaste almost watered down not typical for this style ,like it was missing something. Good would drink it again but could be better.

On tap at the brewpub.

It appears like they're making this one a regular, and that's probably a good thing. This ale has a most of the typical wit flavors like coriander, lemon, and creamy wheat, but everything seems amplified. That takes the balance of a bit and it's not as subtle as other wits, but darn it's still tasty. Definitely a beer to try if you make it to the Brew Works.

Pours a shockingly cloudy orange gold. The light wouldn't even pass through this. We're talking pint held to an exposed 60w bulb. Yikes! I suspect this one will be yeasty. Regardless of what comes next, this looks gross.

Smells of delicate wheat, orange juice, and a slight metallic sting.

Wow, tastes much like a hefeweitzen with a sweet and smooth yeast character backed by an equally smooth wheat. This is followed up by an effervescent citrus that leans towards orange and a touch of lime. Finishes shockingly clean.

This one's a mouth full with an explosion of carbonation, but things fall pretty quickly and disappear.

Looks aside, this one isn't too bad, but perhaps a little heavy for the style.

Hazed yellow-gold color with nice cap of soapy white head, good lacing. Scent is as advertised, orange and lemon peel for citrus, corriander and pepper for spice and chamomile for a light floral taste all backed with a light bready yeast. Taste follows scent... a dead ringer for Hoegaarden if there ever was one, and props for being able to duplicate it exactly. Medium bodied, active carbonation, light citrusy sweet aftertaste. A nice Wit with some strong flavors and extra kudos for being able to mimic another beer spot on.

A-pours a cloudy paticals floating golden color with tiny white head and no lacing.
S-sweet floral notes with noticeable citrus
T-taste is of citrus and spice. Added a lemon slice which really brought this beer to life. Added a nice sour complexity to this sweet beer.
M-medium bodied with a nice tingle of citrus lingering in my mouth.
O-good beer would drink again especially on a hot sunny Sunday.

First had: on tap at Bethlehem

Poured a slightly hazy, bright straw-whitish-yellow color with a small fizzy white head. Served with an orange wedge. Aromas of light banana esters and typical wit spices. Taste of toasted grains, more of the typical wit profile, but a bit watered down... This was basically a Blue Moon clone, so after a couple sips, I plopped in the orange wedge, and let it take the edge off so I could finish it easier. Light body, fairly easy to drink, but lacking in any real complexity or taste. Sampler size is all that's required for this one.

On tap at the Allentown Brew Works location.

Poured a deep and cloudy to murky yellow color with a small sized whit head. Aromas of bananas, cloves, and light wheat. Tastes of wheat, cloves, coriander, light citrus, and bananas.
