On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat and coriander, with some other spices as well. The flavor is mostly coriander and wheat with only a little orange peel. There are some spicy hops in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation.

A: Pours hazy with a slight orange color. Looks like any good wit should. Slight head when served to me.

S: Good fruity smell to the beer. Easy to pick out certain citrusy aromas as well.

T: Really impressed by it for being a Texas Witbier. It has a great flavor to go with the aroma.

M: Standard for a witbier. Slight carbonation.

D: Easy drinkability. If it is available, I have no issue getting it.

I am not a fan of wit beers or grapefruity beers but this one was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the slight citrus note in the smell as well as the subtle undertone once on the palate. The wheat and grapefruit where perfectly balanced to make a delicious beer. It probably helped that I was sitting in a non air conditioned bar in 90 degree heat, but still a palatable beer.

Split a pint with the wife at yesterday's (512) spring open house.

This wit was served a cloudy, peach-color with a finger or so of white head. Smell is full of clove and wheat, nice and light. I also taste plenty of clove, along with bubble gum, citrus, and coriander in this lightly spicy beer. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy and pleasant, and on a warm spring day, this was one easy beer to drink.

I feel truly lucky to know the brewmaster Kevin. He is a great guy and this brewery is off to a great start. I feel lucky because I have gotten to see this brew evolve from the first batch (which was just okay) to the latest batches, and it has become undeniably solid. Good job, Kevin.

Appearance - This brew pours a hazy light golden orange color - translucent like a Wit should be. It produced a 2 finger head white fluffy head, which leaves light lacing behind as the head dissipates. A quick swirl of the glass brings the head back, that dissipates even quicker - demonstrating okay head retention. There is a constant stream of carbonation bubbles that rise up from the bottom.

Smell - This is a pretty good smelling witbier. I can get notes of grapefruit peel and coriander. It is yeasty with light floral hops notes and wheat. Almost bubblegumy. Light citrus. Opting for grapefruit peel instead of orange peel is a very nice take on this style.

Taste - This is a great tasting witbier. It has flavor notes of light grapefruit, coriander, and a hint of bubblegum. Light citrus twang and crispeness from the grapefruit. Even, smooth, and delicate - very balanced. The coriander is light and even - Kevin doesn't beat you over the face with it. The grapefruit in this witbier makes it very unique.

Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is good for a witbier - soft and almost chewy. I would have a liked a little crispness from the carbonation, but the carbonation level is a little low.

Drinkability - The drinkability is really awesome - really easy drinking witbier. Goes down smooth, nice even flavor - it is a great anytime beer, especially here in Texas.
