This pour a hazy golden amber with bright white foam
There's an aroma of coriander and orange peel, with a lightly floral aroma
It's crisp and refreshingly light with a floral character and some orange peel and coriander coming through. Delicious.

Hazy golden color. 3 fingers extra foamy super white sparkly head, lasting 5 minutes and creating a foam island that you can sculpt with each sip.

Aromas and flavors of sweet fruity citrus and spicy clove. Perfectly balanced taste with a wheat, bread like feel, and floral hints. Could be tastier.

Thick slick, almost creamy body with a prickly champagne like feel. Faint and short well balanced finish making salivate.

Overall : Excellent fresh white beer. Missing a little taste and some feel, while not too heavy while eating.

This tasted more like a hefe then a wit. I couldn't detect as much spice as I would like from a wit and there were a lot more banana esters than I would expect from a wit. It was a solid beer but a little off for the style I think.

Picked up a single fresh bottle at Cafe Craft in North Charleston, SC. After scoring the tin foil cap and popping the top, I proceeded to pour the dirty blonde ale in to a tall wit tulip. Exceptionally cloudy with tons of unfiltered particulates floating freely. The drink dons a 3-finger frothy foam head of fine bubbles. Most of the foam dissipated fairly quickly, but it left a nice thin layer that endured. Decent retention with no lacing. Lots of coriander in the nose, with a citrusy orange zest. Faint grassy, wooden aroma in the background. The first sip brings a distinct lemon sourness, tart, with grains of wheat in the finish. Nearly undetectable clove spice. Simple. Aside from the coriander and citrus, the beer is lacking complexity. Mostly due to the sparing use of competing spices. Ultimately I think that adds to the charm of this one. The carbonation is lively and the body is somewhat thin. Refreshing. This beer immediately makes me think of summer time. With it's fresh lemon citrus flare and easy drinkability this beer is the perfect companion for a hot sunny day. While not the best wit I've had, I'll take this over any number of the crappy shandy varieties I've sampled.
