16oz pour on tap at Hot and Soul in Ft. Lauderdale. Poured into a unlabeled pint glass 5/21/2014.

A- Slightly hazy straw yellow body, one finger white head, some retention and a bit of lacing. Looks the part of a wit, though it seems to have more of a pilsner character.

S- Wheaty, biscuity pale malt sweetness, a little bit of spices- coriander, citrus peel. Smells good, nothing special though.

F- Executed fairly well- biscuity pale malt sweetness mixed in with coriander and citrus. Some citrus peel character, a slight bitterness that I can't place, but not very bitter at all. Enough wheat character, not exactly a hefeweizen but definitely can tell this is a wit.

M- Lighter in body, refreshing, very easy to drink yet not watery at all. Refreshing and no off-flavours at all. Everything is quite agreeable here.

O- Solid white ale, nothing special but certainly a good choice for a warm summer evening.

A - pours a light yellow with a slight haze. Quickly dissipating white head of two fingers. Low visible carbonation coming up.

S - zesty and summery. Coriander and a little citrus in there, lemony. Nice nose.

T - kind of soapy to be honest. Light citrus. Almost saison like. Champagne yeast perhaps? Malt profile is nice, not over the top but adds appropriate sweetness.

M - light body, drinkable summer beer. Smooth going down. Good carb levels.

O - decent. Good Belgian style white. Not a homerun.
