3.91/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On-tap at Wedge Brewing Company, Asheville, NC

A: The beer is hazy straw yellow in color and has a slight amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of orange peels are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has notes of wheat and hints of coriander.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I wouldn't call this a very refreshing or thirst quenching witbier, but it is definitely very flavorful.

3.9/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I'll say one thing about wedge: They'll keep you guessing! BA has the ABV listed at 5.3%, the printed menu at the brewery listing a slightly lower 4.6%, the chalkboard at the brewery displaying a nearby 4.9%, and the official website billing it at 5.1% (with RB showing 4.8%).

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, pale daffodil-colored body with a finely-textured, white head.

Smell: Gentle, easy, breezey whiff of maltiness accompanied by a note of citrus and a sharp, distinct scent of fresh coriander.

Taste: Fusion of pilsener and wheat malts with a soft tanginess and slight, sweet dusting of powdered sugar. A citrusy fruitiness of lemon as well as incoming sweet orange rind. Very minor bitterness. As with the nose, there's still a strapping helping of spicy coriander. Reasonably drying finish with a lingering hint of that coriander.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: A solid, tasty witbier regardless of where that pesky, fluctuating ABV percentage may fall.

Another goodie from Wedge that I was able to try on a hot day. This one really hit the spot for me as it pours out a nice light yellow color with a very nice haze to it. Nice one finger head of white stays on top for a good few moments before falling back down to earth an leaving just a good bit of lacing in its wake.

Aroma is light cloves, lots of fresh grasses, and light grain notes. Upon further inspection I am able to come up with a nice touch of light citrus, perhaps lemon touches to it as well. Very nice and light profile. This carries over to the flavor nearly perfectly as the light citrus rind, grasses ,light floral notes and big healthy dose of grain leaves the mouth feeling refreshed and thirst very much quenched. Easily session able I could have had a bunch more of this.

Overall a very solid and lighter offering that I would have no issue with having again any day. Really nicely done.

3.45/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

On tap at the (wonderful) brewery, drank outside with a handful of their infinite peanuts. This was listed as 4.9% on the chalkboard, but 5.1% on the Wedge website and 5.3% here. So it seems to change a bit.

A. Hazy, unfiltered. Pale straw. Grainy, watery. 1 finger tall white head, which could be bigger / last longer.

S. Minor wheat here, lemon, a hint of sulfur at the start. Coriander, naturally. Doesn't smell as bold as other beers of this style (Allagash, etc). Nothing really bad here, just a little timid.

T. Light, crisp and watery, citrus shines through although I'm getting more lemon than orange. Citric-fresh, spiced decently, quite wet. Light and refreshing, but I prefer a little more body and wheat-spice in my Witbiers these days.

M / D. High carbonation, served a bit too cold off the tap. Fizzy and light bodied. This is basically a lighter take on the Wit style and is just as good as Hoegaarden, but no more. Nothing special here for me - Mother Earth does this better if you're looking for a NC brewed Witbier. Still, refreshing enough on the hot iron porch of the Wedge.

On-tap at Barley's served in a standard pint glass a fairly crisp light orange with a thin diminishing head. Aroma is slight sweet malts and spice. The taste is a nice sharp spicy wit flavor very fitting to the style. The beer seems a bit heavier than the stated 5.3%, but is still somewhat refreshing. This one is somewhat enjoyable, but there are several beers from Wedge I'd order next time instead.
