3.46/5  rDev -10.1%

On tap at the brewpub in the outskirts of San Antonio.
Hazy light yellowgold with a semi-durable white head that leaves a little bit of lacing.

Complex arom is lemony, spicy and bready.

Flavor: more hoppy than suggested by the aroma. Lemon, banana, light malts and a good bit of spicy rye. Well balanced and somewhat layered.

Feel: light body and medium carbonation. .

O: a spicy and intersting wit beer. Recommended.

4.13/5  rDev +7.3%

Had on tap at the brewery.

A - Cloudy straw color w/ tiny hint of orange. Low creamy head retreats to a ring around the edge of the glass. Some lacing.
S - Light earthy hops and cracked wheat. The rye was not obvious to me in the aroma. To me this seemed like a classic wit aroma. Very clean.
T -Good wit-like wheat up front. Noticeable hops bitterness seems higher than Belgian versions, but enjoyable. Late palate became very peppery-maybe a combination of rye and yeast notes.
M - Prickly carbonation. Light body. No alcohol sensation.
O- A crisp refreshing wit. Rye was not in your face, but mild peppery spice flavors make it interesting.

3.13/5  rDev -18.7%

Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Beer pours a clear very light golden color with a quarter finger of white head. The head fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: Light malt and yeasty. The overall smell is very light.

Taste: Light malt with a ton of yeast. The overall flavor is bread like with the rye spice showing up in the finish. Very light overall.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with fluffy carbonation and a finish that is a touch dry.

Overall: Good enough, but I thought it was a bit boring. Easy to drink.

The beer is light golden ad clear with a small white head. The aroma brings coriander, wheat, bread. Crackers and light spice. Light and refreshing. Easy to drink. Well balanced and flavorful. This would be a great hot weather beer. I would definitely have this again.
