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. A dash of Cranberry and ginger sneaks in.
Tastes as with nicely belnd balance of the spice not. Supported well by the creamy mouthfeel and crisp carbonation. I enjoyed the ginger and seasonal fruit notes.
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.

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to sportstsar for sharing this one.
Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, blueberry Tootsie Pop, cranberry, and ginger tea aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart citrus and cranberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Bottle grabbed from the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy nearly clear light yellow with a small quickly receding white head. Big fruit on the aroma, oranges, tart cranberry, honey, wheat, some funky yeast and just a hint of spice. Flavor is big orange peel, some lightly tart cranberry, a bit of coriander (?) spice, lemon peel. This is extremely light bodied with huge effervescent carbonation that makes this lighter and dryer than the regular version of Cottonmouth with less sweetness. Lingering orange peel and light sweetness. I like this a lot. A very very light holiday brew that can be sucked down all day long. They really hit the orange blossom honey and cranberry tart on the nose here. Nicely crafted if not the best Belgian Wit out there.

No head to speak of with minimal lace on a cloudy dull golden body. Aroma of funky yeast, tart orange and tangerine and herbal hops. Flavor is mild and subdue, a little flat with yeast, hint of clove and herbal hops, some lemon and peppercorn. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. The flavor is nice, about as dynamic as a witbier can be and isn't too sweet.
