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

A: Very cloudy light pastel yellow in color. Forms a very fizzy head that quickly fizzes away to just a thin ring around the edge. No lacing,

S: Aroma is full of yeast, yeasty esters and citrus peel. Some mild spices. A little coriander.

T: Taste is thin and mildly tart, but the sweetness is stronger than the tartness. Very noticeable wheat character. Citrus: mostly lemon, with a little orange zest mixes with the sweetness to give this one a flavor somewhat reminiscent of what I imagine fermented Lemon-Lime Gatorade would taste like. There are some very mild spices on the finish.

M: On the lighter side. Heavier carbonation. Mildly crisp. Virtually non-existant bitterness.

O: A very approachable witbier. Hell, this one is easier to drink than Full Pint's "sessionable" Pale Ale.

This brew pours a cloudy orange with a minimal head which does not last long and light lacing on the glass. A little bit of the broken head floats on the top of the brew until the end.

The smell is great with strong orange, wheat, bubble gum, coriander, lemongrass, grains of paradise and sweet malts.

Sadly the taste does not follow the perfect nose of this beer. There is definitely a lot of wheat, sweet malts and grains of paradise then peppery hops in the background. Not at all bad but after that wonderful smell I was expecting more from the taste.

The mouthfeel is thin and bubbly due to the carbonation. The beer leaves a somewhat dry taste in the mouth after swallowing.

Overall this would be a great session beer for a hot summer day. It goes down very easily. If "Full Pint" could get the taste to match that wonderful smell this brew would be perfect.

12oz bottle: This one pours a fairly clear, straw yellow color. Mine had almost no head on it, and left almost no lacing. Lighter but nice aroma. Mainly lemony citrus, with faint spice and wheat notes. Some grassiness too. The taste is good. Pretty typical of a wit. Lemon, wheat, a hint of spiciness. Perhaps a bit lighter in body, but still pretty good.
