3.4/5 rDev -4.5%
On-tap 8/6/13 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered mug glass.
A: The beer is a cloudy yellow color, with a large white head that fades quickly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains wheat, light malts, citrus and a touch of hops.
T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a thin malt character. Then some mild lemony sweetness comes in. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are a lot of other beers in the style that I would pick first.

2.69/5 rDev -24.4%
12oz bottle into a hefeweizen glass
Bottled on date is missing
A: Pours a hazy golden yellow. A little head builds, but then recedes before I can even determine the color. Really looks flat, and just plain unappealing.
S: Smells much better than it looks, with a big ginger aroma, some banana esters, and clove. Decent amount of citrus too. Very nice.
T: Big let down on the taste. Ginger is there, which is nice. But other than that, its just not very good. Theres some wheat, and a non-specific bitterness. Meh.
M/D: Tastes flat. Heavier body, abnormally filing. Drinkability is below average.
O: Really nice aroma, but everything else in this beer is just kinda blah. I recommend a pass on this one.

12 oz bottle, bottled on july 11
A; straw golden, orange color with a 1/4 inch fluffy white head. not much head retention, it dissipates fairly quickly. opaque, good looking beer aside from the lack of head
S; coriander, white pepper, and candied ginger lead the way. A nice wheat/citrus smell is present, smells very much like a wit
T: nice sweetness, slight honey and herb notes, ginger, and coriander, slight spicey and fruity notes.
M: medium bodied, creamy
O: all around just a good solid american wit. I have always overlooked red hook before but their variety pack has surprised me.

I picked this up at Giant beer garden and eatery in a mix-a-six, enjoyed chilled in a mason jar.
The color is tarnished golden with appropriate haze and quick dropping white cap with small bead, no lace forms. The smell is very yeasty with some wheat malt esters and slight spice aroma with light pepper note. The feel is very good with nice spice and yeast complimentary textures with moderate cabornation and semi-dry finish with low alcohol impact.
The taste is both sweet and spicy with mild yeast flavor compared to the smell with some light pepper and tropical elements with a fruity element and light nuttiness from the wheat malt. There is a slightly creamy taste with mild ginger which I probably wouldn't even have guessed unless I read it in the description. I enjoyed this wit, but wouldn't go out of my way to get it, it is drinkable and balanced though.
