Appearance: Poured with a solid finger of head that retained exceptionally well and produced some minor lacing. The body has some clouding but not so much that you can't see the abundant cabrbonation.

Smell: There is a strong backbone of wheat malt with a very mild citrus note. It's a nice smell, but even with ample warming, it's not as strong as I'd like him.

Taste: Starts with a healty wheat, hit of wheat malt that turns to a sweet citrus taste. Very mild, very easy, very refreshing, really the perfect beer for hot florida weather.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with excellent transistioning, the carbonation is nice and foamy but the aftertaste is notably absent apart from a brief dry bready snap.

Drinability: Easy on the system, exceptionally light and very refreshing. Light bodied, and really an excellent summer drinker.

Final Thoughts: I finally got to visit Florida and knew I had to try Cigar City. This one was one of a couple beers I managed to snag whlile here. This is an awesome great hot weather beer. All in all an excellent Wit. Thumbs Up

12oz can poured into shaker pint. Hazy yellow liquid with a modest one-finger head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Aroma is lemon and orange peel, dusty wheat, and coriander. Taste is similar with citrus sweetness and some spicy bite. Light body, thin texture, moderate carbonation, abrupt drying finish.
