look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a very cloudy pale straw yellow in color with some light amounts of golden yellow highlights and a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall sudsy white head that rather quickly reduces to a couple of small patches of medium thickness medium bubbles, a very thin film covering the entire surface of the beer, and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of wheat, citrus (lemon and orange peel), and some lighter notes of spices (maybe coriander). There is also a light to moderate amount of fruitiness and yeast.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of wheat with some lighter notes of spices (coriander). There are light to moderate flavors of lemon citrus and orange peel with a light amount of fruitiness (maybe apple). The yeast gives a flavor to the beer that is not dissimilar to that of paste (the kind that you used in elementary school and some kids were always eating).

M: Just heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This beer was super easy to drink with the light body and the refreshing flavors - definitely sessionable. This is a very enjoyable offering from a newer brewery to the NC scene (and one of the few in Eastern NC).

A: Poured into my DFH signature glass. Pours a cloudy straw/yellow color with a bright white head, about one finger in height. Spotty white lacing.

S: Light wheat aroma and orange peel, some grass and some light spices.

T: The spices come through stronger on the flavor profile than the aroma. There is a nice coriander/pepper flavor as well as some orange, orange peel, and a light bready malt profile.

M: Light to medium bodied with solid carbonation.

O: Quite enjoyable and extremely easy drinking. A nice lighter beer that is refreshing and a great warm weather beer.

Pours a hazy golden yellow with half an inch of thick, creamy head that has good retention. The nose is very yeasty with some lemony aromas. The taste is smooth with lemon, yeast, coriander up front and heavy orange notes in the finish. It's a little sweet. It's lightly carbonated and light bodied.

This is an easy drinking, light, summery beer. It's brewed to style though a little heavy on the orange zest. As far as witbiers go, I would get this again.

Had a bottle at North Banks Restaurant in Corolla, NC. This light and spicy beer went nicely with my shrimp and clams. It's a very standard American-made wit. It's a bit overspiced and there isn't much subtly. It's a simple, but tasty, beer that may not match its Belgian counterparts, but it worth trying at least once.
