look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Hazy as can be golden body with a white head that is creamy, lasts, and laces.

Lemon, floral, pineapple, orange, some banana ester, rye on the back end, and a little honey sweetness.

Bubbly but more mild than most wits come across with. Body is pretty hefty.

Could use more rye. Sort of a hybrid beer going on. Overall pretty good. Not your average wit and the bottle doesn't show the big ABV on this guy.

Not much rye for a rye beer. Looked good, nice lacing and not much after that, unless you're into good tasting pineapple beers.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear golden yellow. Small white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Very fruity. Pineapple. Estery yeast. Some light grain.

Taste - Quite sweet. Pineapple. Tropical fruits. Yeasty and some grains. Rye comes up in the back.

Mouthfeel - Quite sweet and heavy. Nothing like a wit. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Meh. Too sweet. Uninspired rye.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium small foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by quite a bit of tart notes with some light spicy rye notes that are also perceptible. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. Not bad but a lot more sour then expected which makes it hard to distinguish some of the rye malt.
