This poured out as a cloudy looking yellow color with a fluffy white head on top that leaves just a film over top of the beer. The smell of the beer had some citrusy grain and wheat aromas to it. The taste of the beer is a little sweet and tart at the same time. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth and light. Overall this is a pretty good beer for summer time. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it though.

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 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.

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.

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.

Notes from 10/13/07.

On-tap at the Brew-pub, Allentown location.

Served with an orange slice garnish that I have no use for. Cloudy, hazy, yellow body with a small white head that leaves a few islands of head.

Smells of citrus, that wheat twang, and coriander.

I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a hoegaarden clone of sorts, or just their version of a wit. Either way, I like this one better than Hoegaarden. It could just be the freshness, but this is definitely a tasty beer. A good wheat twang some mixes with some coriander and other herbal notes. Big citrus flavor in the finish.

Slightly creamy, moderate carbonation.

This stuff is refreshing and pretty easy to throw back. A good beer at a great price.

a: This was a slightly hazy golden color. It was served to me with a thin fizzy cap.

s: Mild banana and cloves plus hints of other spices. Everything a wit is supposed to have, just not quite enough of them.

t: Tastes a bit better than it smells. Wheaty bananas and some spicy cloves. Tasty, but on the mild side.

m: Nicely chewy with fizzy carbonation.

d: Not the best wit around, but this was refreshing with no off flavors.
