Had this before at a wedding in FL. It was nice there. Pours a near excellent clarity golden with a solid central dome of bone white foam, unimpressive for the style. Smells of flowers, grass, some light lemon, a little bit of sweet dough and seeds of paradise. Flavor is nice and sweet with yeast overtures and some bits of coriander. Pretty one dimensional flavor, but refreshing nonetheless. Thin bodied for the style with hi carb and a wet finish. Meh.

The beer pours a straw yellow with a rocky soap bubble head that collapses into a fizzy, thick scrim. The beer’s body is cloudy but clean and free of particles with a lazy and slow stream of bubbles treading towards the top of the glass. On the nose the beer smells of sweet orange peel, cuaraco with lemon sweet bread notes and a touch of bitter grass. There is also a bready sweet note that stands apart from the lemon and reminds me of a sweet cracker, which goes nicely with the beer’s name. On the tongue the beers tastes of bready sugars and citric lemon acid. The flavor begins as sweet lemon bread, opening into grassy hops and orange peel flavors with a touch of coriander spice. The finish suggests slight green vegetal apple flavor with notes of lemon and grass, then dips into a creamy cracker flavor briefly as the beer warms, but quickly washes away, this flavor really has to be searched for though and is not abundantly clear to the palate. The aftertaste is very light and clean. From the can, the beer smells nearly the same, and tastes a little sweeter due to the concentration of flavors in the tiny can opening. In the mouth, the beer feels medium in body with a slight wateriness. The carbonation is a little sharp on the tongue, and the mouth is left slightly sticky with nice amounts of saliva from the acid in the beer. Overall, this is a nice sessionable wit with some interesting flavors. I don’t really get the cracker flavor, but I can see what the brewers were reaching for with this beer. It’s tasty, sessionable, and worth a try. A nice middle of the road wit.

A- Pale, slightly hazy golden body with a fizzy bone white head.
S- Oranges, clove, hints of banana, some lemon.
T- Lots of citrus with the Belgian yeast providing a peppery, clove flavor. A hint of herbal flavors come through as well.
M- Medium-high carbonation, somewhat thin, but drinkable.
O- A pretty good wit. Big on the orange/citrus flavor which works nicely with the yeast.
