Cloudy limocello yellow with puffy craggy white froth.
Light herbs, lemon zest and clean wheat on the nose - mild.
Cream crackers, waxy yeast, coriander hum and citrus tartness to end.
Carambola finish and herbal linger.
Light to medium, clingy, soft.
Too sweet, some rough edges, flat and a bit heavy - could definitely use more fizz. Basically, exactly what you're not looking for in a hot weather beer. Mediocre at best.
Starting to wonder just how good a brewery CCB really is...

12 oz can poured hazy golden straw with lots of visible carbonation and a towering, durable white head.
Aroma: Malty-musty-yeasty with ripe banana and traces of lemon and coriander.
Taste: Much better than the aroma (my usual response to witbiers), with more lemon and less banana and yeast. There are hints of bread dough, flowers and orange peel. Tart.
Feel: above average amount of carbonation; medium body; close to creamy for style; tart; less dry than expected.
Overall: worth trying, particularly if you like this style. Refreshing.

Had this from can to glass on 3/21/13, originally canned on january 17, 2013. So fresh! I was excited to try it as I've heard it was a damn good beer. Nice bright yellow color. Very refreshing mouthful. You totally taste the crackers in the beer. Another cool thing... Watch out for the messages on the bottom of the cans.

Poured on-tap at the Cigar City Brewing tasting room in Tampa. The beer was served in a pint glass, and it poured a slightly hazy, pale gold color with no head. The nose is very muted, with floral (juniper?) smells, and very light spicing. The beer is light and smooth, with flavors of slight sour citrus and a smooth, bready spicing. Light in mouth, this beer has an aftertaste that is mostly coriander spicing. The finish is minimal and quick, making an easy drinker.
