Draft offering at the taproom by springhouse. This is goofy foot with citra hops. The brew appears a clouded yellow color with a creamy silk topping of white froth that perisits throughout the entire duration. An awesome looking brew.

The smell includes notes of fresh grassy hops. Some citrus elements galore with a touch of grass and herbs.

The taste is a bit grassy and vegetative with rindy pith and bitterness like zest/rind. It is light and yet bright and vibrant at the same time with a mild wheat sort of base grain dryness into the finish.

This is a medium to light bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is nicely done and enjoyable, a clear favorite of all the brews that were on tap during my last visit. Would certainly drink this again.

Serving type: on-tap

Been meaning to travel to Spring House for a while and finally had a chance to get to their brew pub in Lancaster (well worth a visit). Brought home a growler of this beer as it seemed the best fit for the other members of my household.

The beer pours nicely with a fairly thin head which leaves light lacing on the glass. Color is a pale amber - about like cider and cloudy as is expected with this beer type. Aromas are bread like with a lighter citrus note that is not obvious at first. Mouthfeel is fairly thin - again what would be expected for this type of beer. There is a pleasant hoppiness on the initial taste - not over-powering which fades. The yeast or bread flavor really dominates after the initial taste - a bit heavy for my taste but to be honest this isn't one of my favorite styles.

Overall I would say that this a fairly typical wheat ale. A good summer beer and for those who enjoy this style probably a pretty good example. If you are in the Lancaster, PA area it is definitely worth a taste.

Served on-tap at the Tasting Room.

A - Pours golden yellow with a nice one finger tall white head leaving small trails of lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of bready wheat, spices, dulled citric fruit and a light grassy hop bitterness.

T - Starts off with plenty of bready wheat slowly giving way to hints of dulled fruit, grassy hops and some light spice. Finish is dry, not lingering for very long.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation. Pretty smooth initially growing a little watery toward the end of the glass.

O - As with Dr. Wit this is just ok. Nothing necessarily wrong with it but I will stick with some of the other beers.
