A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation, significant amounts of large off-white chunks of yeast, and some peach highlights. The beer has a finger tall off-white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass.

S: LIght aromas of fruity yeast along with light aromas of wheat. Even lighter hints of lemon citrus and just a hint of herbal hops.

T: Upfront there are light flavors of wheat and some grainy malts along with some hints of lemon citrus which intensifies as the beer warms up. Light hints of herbal hops which leaves no lingering bitterness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Pretty refreshing for a hot summer day and not unenjoyable though I'm not a huge fan of large amounts of visible chunky yeast sediment.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer poured a cloudy yeast infection looking brew. The beer had a nice wite puffy head. The beer smelled citrusy tasted that way also. with a slight bitter finish. The head went away fast and the beer smelled bad. Still I liked the taste good enough to drink again.

Pours a cloudy straw golden yellow with a finger white head, good retention and moderate lacing.

Aroma was weak with hints of wheaty malt and citrus.

Taste of citrus, wheat, coriander and yeast.

Mouth Feel was light leaning towards medium body with light carbonation and smooth drinking.

Overall a good witbier, refreshing, however, there are other witbiers I would choose before this one.

I got this in a beer of the month club. Pretty tasty for a hot summer day. Pours hazy golden with a nice head. Classified as a wit beer but doesn't completely taste like it. Good carbonation, and has a sweet/bread like nose. Taste of bready yeast and a slight citrusy flavor up front, and finishes off with a creamy taste from the pale malts. Good summer beer. I'd try it again.

The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a solid pale and wheat malt scent along with a mildly fruity yeast character. It doesn't have the traditional witbier yeast character, nor does it have the orange peel and coriander aroma. The taste is decent as well. It's incredibly tasty, yet lacking key witbier qualities, such as the coriander and bitter orange peel. It does have a pleasant yeast character, however and it's damn drinkable. The mouthfeel is good. It is a low/medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a highly drinkable wheat beer. It's not a witbier, but more along the lines of an American wheat. Still a quaffable summer brew.
