(LOT 444 - best by July 2014 - poured into a British pint)

A: yellow like the first rays of the morning sun... pretty dang clear for a Wit - still a slight haze... very little head - wonder why that is - doesn't look right... btw - the bottle label (as are the rest of their labels) is right out of the ol' Weyerbacher portfolio, not quite as wonderfully cheezy though

S: the smell is pretty textbook, very appealing... nice balance of doughy wheat, toasted cereal malt, mild coriander, and light citrus overtones

T: once again, pretty good up front... the brightness of the outer skin of the citrus peel seems to come out more... bit of a penny-metallic twang at the back... coriander sits calmly in the middle with a moderate biscuity pale malt flavor underneath... mild bitterness, seeming to wear a shade of coriander husk... pretty dry, lacking a bit of depth, but still surprisingly flavorful

M: at first, a tad thin... still feels a tad thin and flat by the end - wonderfully crush-able though

O: i gotta admit - actually pretty well done... was growing on me by the end

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

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass - swirled some in bottle to get yeast out

A. Nice straw colored beer, poured clear with decent head, clouded once added yeast from bottom of bottle. Decent lacing
S. Nice fruity smell. Right on for style
T. Excellent flavor with spice profile coming through. Well balanced between the fruity esters.
M. Nice mouthfeel, average carbonation
O. Very good beer in the wit class. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely have another.

this beer is amazing... i poured three quarters of the beer into my glass. laid the bottle on its side and rolled it around to get all of the unfiltered yeast off of the bottom. added it in on the final pour to go from bright and clear to creamy and thick. the smell was also amazing. sweet cirus notes. the taste was also outstanding sweet start sour middle todry finish just what i like. the mouthfeel was a little off putting kinda soft carbonation. could be better . over all one of my favorite local brews
