Had this beer on draft at a local beer bar. Seems the bar has been taken over by draft beer from this particular brewery. I love seeing local business helping out local business.

Beer is yellow and slightly hazy, kind of cloudy but not like most wits. Almost no carbonation and almost no head. No lacing on the glass. I think is someone put the beer in front on me and asked what it was I would have said, "A wit?" and I would have been right.

Aroma is fine, a little weak, some grain aroma, its just fine, average.

Beer is thin and watery. There is also a strong sour / cereal aftertaste of grains. Overall there isn't a whole lot going on until you swallow. This is going to sound harsh but its almost like they wanted to make a light Hoegaarden but it turned out tasting like a blend between blue moon and coors light. I get it, you need a light beer for mass appeal. This wasn't it. Sorry guys.

On-tap at CCB

A - It appears as a clear straw-hued wit with small white cap.

S - Aroma is slight banana wheatiness with vague spicing.

T - Its very lightly flavored, which is not to say that it is mildly spiced; it is meant to convey the lack of richness or fullness.

M - Thin, inoffensive though.

D - Good beach beer; SwampHead seems to have a knack for it.

A- Cloudy yellow with hardly any head and what was there disappears quickly

S- nothing... agitation still nothing... maybe some unplaceable fruits...?

T- Decent wit. Matliness underneath with a tang that I can't really place (coriander...?) that makes this quite intriguing

M- Light body with decent carbonation which is strange based on the nose and he lack of head

D- That tang... makes me want more!

On tap at the brewery.
Sampling this one without any reference, it was immediately clear that this was a Belgian style wit. Both the wheaty grain notes and plenty of banana from the yeast. A familiar style, but not a favorite.

The pour was very light yellow-gold in color, crystal clear with a durable white head than left some sticky lacing on the glass. There's a rather pronounced ripe banana note in the fruity nose.
Nice sweet/tart balance is a little on the sweet side.
The strong banana fades by the finish, leaving a lightly spicy and bready aftertaste.
Light body with very good carbonation.

Pale hazy golden, perhaps a shade lighter than that. A well formed white, frothy head that lasted the entire time. Hint of orange or lemon rind with a sweet, pale grain aroma. Honey, bread, hint of yeast, and orange peel in the flavor, finishing dry and with a very slight bit of bitterness. Nicely carbonated. A decent wit.
