4.13/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a very cloudy light yellow color with a moderate pure white head with considerable lacing. The aroma is very grainy with hints floral hints, as well as some clove and other spices. A very nicely balanced Wit with lot of wheaty taste (almost bready), plenty of fruitiness, and some citrus finish that gives the beer a nice dryness almost a little bitter finish. The beer is light in the mouth but creamy. This goes down very well from start to finish and almost demands a second. It holds up very well in the growler, also.

Pours a hazy yellow, darker than Hoegaarden but comparable to most American wits. You can definitely tell what it is when you look at it. The smell is again pretty standard, but I detect a little more hops than your average wit. The smell was definitely a bit stronger when I had a draft at the pub. Taste is phenomenal, this is probably my favorite American brewed wit. Like a lot of Sly Fox's beers, it has a touch more hops than you'd expect from the style. Its' not over the top or anything, but I certainly enjoy it (even if its' a slight deviation from the norm for this style). Mouthfeel is a bit heavier than most wits, but still very light. Drinkability is really where this beer shines - on a hot summer day this would be really hard to beat.

Judging by the number of reviews I'd say this is probably tough to get outside the area, but if you come across it its' definitely worth giving a try!

A: Murky straw golden with two fingers of white head and nice lacing.

S: Wheat and straw notes like and american pale wheat with a touch of orange.

T: Orange and spice flavors jump out and meld nicely with the slightly sour wheat notes.

M: Good carb and nice medium to full body with a clean finish.

D: Very refreshing and will make a great partner to the warm evening and the Sunday paper.

Clear gold topped by about a half inch of dense, white foam off a vigourous pour. Streaky lacing adhered to the glass for about the first half and remained throughout. Crackery malt aroma with a generous helping of orange zest - spice was fairly restrained as was yeastiness. Mild bitterness with plenty more of the wheaty, crackery malt base. Fruit character filled out the middle along with substantial sweetness - spice and floral hops moved forward at the finish. Light bodied, but with some residual sugar that makes it a bit sticky. Carbonation was on the creamy side and it had a bit of dryness. I grabbed a growler of this to get me through July 4th - perfect for the warm weather. I don't know if the recipe's different or the yeast has just settled out, but this was a lot more clear than I expected.

It is a slight cloudy gold, but clearer than many others I have had. The aroma is hoppy, but I don't get any delicate citrus or spice in the nose. It is relatively light, though the body is a little syruppy for my taste. It finishes with a bit too much bitterness as well. Not a bad beer, just does not have the refreshing qualities that I like out of a wit.

Poured a cloudy deep yellow with a nice big rocky head,smell was pretty spicey and sweet.I tasted a honey malt character to this beer with some spicey notes,light in body so this very easy to drink.The spiciness really hit the spot for me on this one.

Quite cloudy (I cannot see my fingers through the glass even when held to the light). The yellowish body is topped by a bright white rocky head that holds well, eventually dropping to a thin creamy collar and leaving some nice lace. The aroma is floral & perfumey; a combination of fruit and spice with a clear note of clove and some orange peel. The body is light (as expected) and nicely creamy from a very fine pinpoint carbonation. The flavor offers bold clove throughout, some fruity and honeyish malt in the middle and some distinct coriander and orange peel in the dry and spicy finish. Nicely done, although the spicing is a bit heavy handed and can become cloying beyond one glass.
