Picked this up on a recent trip to Florida. Tasted 29 October 2013.
Pours golden, 100% clear. One finger of almost-white head that fizzes and fades, leaving little lacing. Disappearing fizzy head like a sour. Nice moderate stream of bubbles rising up.
Smell is nice. Clean, a bit full and sweet, with a potent light spice presence. A little rounded for a wit, a little heavier and fuller than I'd expect, and not as crisp or refreshing. But nice.
Taste is more crisp than the smell, less grainy-sweet, with a touch of bitter and spice in the back. It's a little more like a wit, but a little less depth.
Feel is a little on the flat side. That carbonation is fizzy, which helps a bit. It's buoyant, too, more than I'd like it to be. Not bad, not great.
It's an okay wit. It's like Florida, a little warmer and wetter than I'd like it to be. Could be more refreshing in a number of ways, and any of those would improve it.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, spice, yeast, and slight citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with very earthy aromas and flavors.
