A: pours a dark gold with a thin head that dissipates quickly despite quite a bit of carbonation.
S: Not a lot of aroma but definite spice notes.
T: This one is growing on me. the camomile gives this a different taste than other wits.(After some reflection, it has stopped growing on me and has receded. I just tried it again and couldn't finish it. I think is like 21st Amendments Hell or High Watermelon. You just have to like that taste associated with beer. I do like camomile in tea but it has stopped working for me with beer.)
M: With the carbonation a the spices this has a nice mouthful. Medium but very good for a wit.
O: Wits are not my favorite style but I do like this one. (Well actually, as it turns out, I don't like it and won't be repeating it.)

On tap at Crazy Mountain Brewing in Edwards, CO. This was by fat the worst beer I tasted at the brewery and possibly one of the worst I've ever tasted. Also odd that their description was "wild fermentation", not sure if that means brett or open fermentation or what. Color was pretty much spot on for a wit, looked like a hazy yellow. Aroma was bad, smelled nothing like a wit, just gross. Flavor was terrible, offensive, I could not take more than two sips and I can;t even describe what I was tasting, rotten flowers? It was like no wit I have ever had nor that I wish to taste again. I am surprised at how many of Crazy Mountain's beers I have had that are just awful.

For a wheat beer, it is stunning how little head is present. Settles quickly to only rim bubbles. The little lace there slides down the glass quickly, leaving nothing. The brew is straw in color with no cloudiness. Frankly, it's disappointing.
Sweet, like Kool-ade. No wheat smell. I do smell some "apple", which I'm not sure where that comes from. Disappointing, again.
Cider sourness is the strong flavor I identify. This is not a Wit from my perspective. The body is decent with an appropriate, if elevated, carbonation level. If this were a cider, I might be fooled. For a Wit, this is a clear miss.
