3.49/5  rDev -5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Cloudy limocello yellow with puffy craggy white froth.
Light herbs, lemon zest and clean wheat on the nose - mild.
Cream crackers, waxy yeast, coriander hum and citrus tartness to end.
Carambola finish and herbal linger.
Light to medium, clingy, soft.

Too sweet, some rough edges, flat and a bit heavy - could definitely use more fizz. Basically, exactly what you're not looking for in a hot weather beer. Mediocre at best.

Starting to wonder just how good a brewery CCB really is...

Can poured into a dogfish spiegelau glass. Canned on 2/20/14

Looks a clouded pale golden honey. Smells of coriander, orange, spice and heavy wheat. Not a huge witbier guy but this smells yummy. Taste is sweet and very smooth, lots of balance with the citrus and spice. CCB has done it again!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Date: 4/2/14
Location: Half a Time Poughkeepsie
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pale yellow in color. Hazy with low carbonation. Pours with a large head
Aromatics: There is a large amount of wheat with the biscuity smell from the Belgian yeast. Orange and coriander.
Flavor: There is a lot of fruit at the start oranges lemons and even a little lime. The middle hits with coriander and the end is biscuity. The mouthfeel is fairly smooth but all the flavors are a little watered down and dull.
Finish: The beer finishes a little spicy but not much else.
