22 oz. bomber poured into a wine glass showing a clear light amber with a healthy cap of whitish foam. Offers good retention and a hint of golder caramel in color. A light boil of carbonation emanates from the bottom of the glass to keep a decent surface cap..

Aroma is more 'Belgian' than expected given the drivel explaining all the hops on website infused into this beer. And a Witbier yeast? Well, maybe there are some hops. Nose is Belgiany yet citric though lacking the expected wheat component up front and a subdued 8% in the malt bill makes sense in this regard. Quite solid nonetheless. In the end I'm surprised by the influence of a wit yeast, vs. a Trappist Yeast, on aroma for a brew with a small wheat footprint. And I'm liking it....

Nice flavor with a touch of light caramel and some yeast notes. Pleasant carbonation with just a hit of alcohol. Spicy, coarse and lightly bitter in the end. Solid actually...
