It's ok, but not one of my fav whites. Poured at a good temperature with a smallish off-white head that vanishes quickly and no lace. Color is a hazy/cloudy yellow. Aroma is yeast, citrus peel, spice, malt. Flavor's like nose, tang in front along with some bitter, then the other qualities. As it warms more citrus peel comes out. The combination of tang and bettering agents yields a reaction on the back of the tongue that isn't that pleasant; other than that body/carbonation are decent. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and while not bad, Ike hooegardens much more.

Canned less than a month ago.

Pours a cloudy straw-colored with a very white head that vanishes.

Aroma of clove and coriander. Nice.

Nice flavor of clove with a hint of banana: the Classic Belgian wit flavor.

Great body. Almost puffy, if that's such a thing.

A very refreshing beer that shows Cigar City can brew more than just high-octane beers.

Pours a pale straw color with little to no head. Nice lemony aroma with just a touch of coriander. Lemon oil, rather than juice is the impression it gives. Lots more lemon in the taste, and again, just a touch of coriander. A bit light in body, even a little seltzer-like, even for the style. Not bad, but could use some more snap and depth.

This poured a handsomely built head that was full of fizzy carbonation that was bright white in hue. The color was cloudy golden pear and had a nice brightness.

The aromas were airy and bubbly with touches of coriander, clove, banana and a champagne like smell.

The flavor tended towards ginger ale at first then some light bready malts, clove and then a pronounced yeast presence.

The feel was very full, bubbly and expansive but it finished very smooth and light, super easy to drink.

Pours a cloudy straw yellow with a white, short lived head. Smells of wheat and coriander. In the taste, dry coriander, citrus zest, orange peel and dusty wheat. Little hop character, mostly spice and wheat. Medium bodied, crisp feel with a light dry yeast. Overall, a nice little wit with a good bit of spice.

Mucho thanks to Three Fishes for the multiple cans. Absolutely tremendous lawn mower beer, hazy in color, citrusy in aroma, and goes down like water. I liked this beer immensely. I didn't drink much of it though, because I aggressively tried foisting it on all of the Blue Moon drinkers I know. That's advocacy for ya' baby. Highly recommended, and an off the chain gateway beer.
