Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Cloudy light yellow with a meringue head of a finger's height. 4.0

Tart lemon, unleavened bread, vanilla, salty crackers, brute-y yeast, and musty citrus hops. 3.5

Mellow lemon and vanilla. Almost a creme fraiche flavor. Herbal notes from the hops and a yogurty appeal. Sandy coriander finish. 4.0

Wet and light. Carbonation is medium-light, as well. Championship drinking. 4.0

Nice wit with loads of lemon and creme and a bit of stank. 4.0

A: Pours to a cloudy pale yellow with a slight hint of orange with less then a fingers worth of head that dissipates very quickly and leaves blotches of head all across the top.

S: Usual banana esthers with some coriander and an ever so slight hint of citrus.

T: Very nice tangy tart at the start. Spicyness of the coriander comes next and then the citrus and belgian yeast flavors come into play and then the alcohol at the very end. All the flavors are very mild and blend smoothly into one another. Very enjoyable.

M: Light carbonation. Nice crispness with the flavors, and the usual dryness in the after taste.

O: Very well put together brew. All the typical flavors are represented. Have to say it has less spice then most of the witbiers i've had but their absence is not missed here. This is my third Ballast Point brew and I have to say they've done a great job and are def becoming one of my favs.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a point glass.

Look - light golden color, clear, with decent carbonation and about half a finger's worth of off-white foam that dissipates slowly.

Smell - interesting bananas and/or cloves type of smell. The coriander and orange peel are pretty evident.

Taste - pretty much exactly like the smell, only a little less obvious. There's a earthy, corn-like taste in the middle and aftertaste. Interesting.

Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced, not leaning too far on the watery or creamy sides.

Overall - pretty interesting and thought-provoking brew.

A 22oz bomber picked up at Bruisin Ale's in Asheville, NC.

A - A cloudy bright yellow, with a hazy complexion. 2 big fingers of head and tons of sticky lace left on the glass. Lots of yeast sediment drifts to the bottom of the glass

S - Sweet, with hints of orange and tropical flavors, and wheat.

T - A tropical wheat, light and refreshing, with hints of citrus and coriander. So much flavor and taste for a 4% abv. Well done!

M - Medium to light bodied, not much carbonation. Average mouthfeel

O - A very drinkable wheat, more than perfect for a hot summer night. Like the bottle says, light and refreshing
