look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A-Hazy golden yellow with a small white head that reduces to a thin cap and leaves spotty lace.

S-Nice notes of lemon zest, orange peel, a touch of hop spiciness and an underlying sweet bread aroma.

T-A nice combination of light spiciness, citrus and mildly tart torified wheat. This one packs a lot of flavour into a such a light package.

M-Medium-light bodied with plenty of lingering tartness and citrus zip. Sharp and fairly crisp even with themitro mix delivery.

D-Absolutely! This one packs a nice punch and delivers a flavour profile that really hits home with me. Light and refreshing with enough flavour to keep things interesting from start to finish.

Served in a weizen glass at Al's of Hampden. No garnishes.

A: The witbier is a golden yellow brew, hazy throughout. A small head, no more than a thin band, sets gently atop the wit.

S: The nose has plenty of orange peel, a sweet citrusy aroma. Wheat and pale malts generate a bready aroma with a tart finish. The crisp tartness in the finish sets the stage nicely.

T: The addition of nitrogen reduces the impact of the carbonation, allowing flavors to linger. That aids the curacao and wheat flavors, giving them legs. There is much more pale barley than wheat, creating a bready flavor that saves the wheat tartness for the very end of each sip. The witbier is very refreshing, better even than I was expecting.

M: The nitrogen-CO2 mix helps the mouthfeel, allowing the tart and fruit flavors to linger. I'd love to see a little more in the way of tart wheat.

D: Another solid beer from Full Pint. This one is light and very refreshing. A good ale for a warm September day.

3.5/5  rDev -3%

Bought from the Beer Store in Moon, pours a slightly hazed golden hue with a bright white head fine lacing followed around the sides of my pint glass. Aroma has sharp coriander citrus wheat notes and evident spicy grains of pardise forming in my nares. Flavors drink well actually with a refreshing tart white ale presence...sharp wheat brings on some citrus qualities maybe a bit of citrus peels. Mouthfeel is medium bodied efffervescent light and spritzy carbonation, goes down easiliy. Another well made Full Pint brew, how many brewers does it take to screw in a light bulb, I'm kidding this is just solid good brewing I'm glad this was a collaboration white ale.

Growler from Fathead's on a freshly tapped keg.

A-pours a hazy pale straw golden color with a pure white head.

S-the nose brings lots of bread, slightly doughy, a light yeast lingers in the middle as a spicy phenol steps in. there are some fruity esters in the back of banana and a touch of lemon.

T-the taste is more balanced with the wheat properties of the beer. hints of dry bread, nice yeast profile, the spice sets in at the middle, peppery phenols, almost latin spice, the fruity banana ester comes in behind with notes of tangy lemon.

M-soft and smooth of the tongue with a nice grainy backing, lively carbonation, would like a tad bit more but nothing to complain about. clean crisp finish.

D-solid wit, good balance of flavors. the finish is a little seltzer waterish and a hint more carb might have helped that. yeast strand could have added a bit more complexity but still tasty.

Pours a hazy yellow color with orange-ish hints and a white head. In the aroma, wheat notes and quite spicy and dry. In the taste, wheat notes, a small orange/ coriander citrus, and small spiciness. A spice like bit and a light bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry orange peel aftertaste. A bit drier than a standard wit, just about average.

Pours a murky golden color with an off white head. Strong scents of citrus zest and biscuits. The taste also had hints of lemon and orange, yeast. Some spices such as clove and a hint of black pepper are evident in the flavor, but not over powering. Very well balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is smooth. Normally I am not a huge witbier fan but I was very impressed with this one.

4.47/5  rDev +23.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy honey color with a modest head that still manages to leave a considerable amount of lacing behind

Smell: Fragrantly fruity with a perfume of grains of paradise and to a slightly lesser extent, orange peel and coriander

Taste: On top of the wheat bread base, all of the flavor that I detected in the aroma literally blasts the tastebuds; by mid-palate, there is some tang and spicy yeast character that develops as well; the finish is well balanced and very fresh tasting

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Drinkability: One of the best wits I have tasted, domestic or Belgian; consider me impressed

Pours a cloudy yellow color with a two finger head which stays around for a little bit and leaves good lacing. The aroma has a caramel malt backbone with hints of spice as well as a strong lemon scent and hints of orange. The taste was of a sweet malt backbone with a nice lemon and orange flavor to it. There is also hints of yeast and spice present. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall there is a nice refreshing and sweet taste to this beer that makes it very drinkable. A very good summer beer, enough aroma and taste to keep you interested in it.
