Served on tap @ Kickbacks
Appearance was milky golden straw color with a tight head and cap.
Appropriatte wit aromas of light wheat malts, mild clove/spice/lemon/citrus and Belgian yeast character.
Tastes as it smells with a nice balance of the spice. Supported well by the creamy mouthfeel and crisp carbonation.
I very much enjoyed this brew. It was a standout offering in my opinion, a stellar showcase of the Witbier style.
I attended a Swamphead Beer dinner at Kickbacks here in Jacksonville Florida 12/13/2010. The lineup overall impressed me, brews were appropriatte to style and well done across the board. I most notably enjoyed the Hoe Hoe Hoe Wit, Tupelo Cream Ale, Stumpknocker APA, and 10-10-10 Whiskey Barrel Aged as standouts for the evening. Overall a very talented brewery across the entire lineup. I had chance to meet Luke the owner who was a great guy, and Craig the brewer who was passionate and open to share his processes. Both were knowlegdable and I am very excited about this new Florida Brewery.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a light clear golden with nearly no head. Aroma of sweet pears and apples, wheat, honey, hint of spice. Light bodied with plenty of carbonation. Flavor is honey, apples, pears, banana, small hint of coriander, and slight dryness but not super dry. Sweet for the style but light enough that this goes nicely with the local hot weather. Not bad and very drinkable.
