3.45/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 ml to a snifter

Appearance: Great big pure white head lasts for a long time but does not condense into more liquid volume, giving the impression that it was quite light. Lots of CO2 is apparent. The beer is a pale yellow-gold

Aroma: European hops, fresh-baked bread, and dried flowers come together for a tight crispness.

Flavors: Pale malts with ample saaz flavors. The hops are quite bitter but the beer lacks any substantial flavor, providing hints of lemon and rosemary without much commitment.

MF: Light and airy, this one fits the bill for how a wit I think should feel.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Enjoyed this bottled brew out a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a clearish golden hue with a frothy white head that doesn’t quit – leaving a great trail.

S: Crisp orange peel and banana clove aroma.

T: Complex flavor – slight sweet and malty.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Solid brew – too bad it is discontinued.
