4.1/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of spicy hops and orange peels are present in the nose along with some hints of sourness.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and is very citrusy and bitter for the style - the combination of these and slight bits of sourness seem to taste a little like grapefruit.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very nice, crisp and refreshing. It seems a little like a hybrid between a witbier and an IPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy medium to dark golden yellow in color with some peach + apricot + orange highlights and light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall creamy and sudsy bright white head that slowly reduces to two medium patches of thick sudsy large bubbles, a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of orange rind, coriander, and spicy hops along with some lighter notes of wheat and just a touch of brett-like tartness in the finish of the smell.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of wheat flavors with some hints of brett like sourness. That is followed by some light to moderate notes of orange rind, coriander, and some spicy hops that contribute a moderate amount of bitterness. There is also a moderate flavor from Belgian yeast as well.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Moderate amounts of dryness in the finish. Slightly creamy.

O: This is a very interesting take on a witbier and I like the hints of brett and the spicy hops - there is a good amount of complexity in both the aroma and taste. I found this one easy to enjoy and refreshing, great for a warm spring afternoon.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a hazy yellowish golden amber. Two finger fine white head with good retention and nice lacing. Typical witbier aroma; wheat, bready malt, coriander, light fruit, a hint of wild yeast. Interesting complex flavor, starting with sweet malt with apple and pear juice, developing a spicy floral element and finishing with light hops, citrus and a hint of brett. Quite a roller coaster and a good one. Sweet at first, but finishing dry and bitter. One of the most unusual, but fun to drink wits I've had. Medium bodied. I'm very impressed. Worth a try.

Served from bottle into a Houblon Chouffe pokal. Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a half finger pure white head that remained throughout. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, banana, wheat, bubblegum, floral, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, clove, wheat, bubblegum, banana, and floral. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. As far as the style goes, you never really go into them expecting too much which can be a little off-putting. However this brew actually made very good use of the style with incorporation of a few things one would not expect to be there. The bubblegum was a nice touch and went really well with the wheat aspect as did the floral note. A really well done brew that I wouldn’t mind drinking again in the future.

Poured a cloudy yellow body with one finger head that died slow with lace patches everywhere. A spicy, citric hop aroma with touches of orange/banana along with pepper and clover although the orange/clove/yeast twang is kept in check. Full bodied, the yeast presence is there and keeps the beer smooth but it's more hoppy than per norm for this style. Still good, just a tad offbalance to me as I find the hops overpowering everything and there is a bit of bitter citric flavor to this beer.

Sunny light orange, hazy color, white finger of head, some lace, little retention. Lemony aroma with touches of wheat bread, floral hops and some sweet bread crusts. Some wheat notes of traditional wits meat herbal, flowery hops, with touches of citrus and lemon zest. Crisp light refreshing nicely carbonated feel.

A nice Americanized take on a Wit...from Denmark. huzzah!

Poured from tap into lambic/belgian ipa style glass - I forget what its called. Pours a very carbonated golden color with lots of head. Bubblegum, straw, hop aroma. Taste is of bubblegum hops...I never had a beer so bubblegum like. Its good but super dry. The hops are present for sure, but not quite as enjoyable as I hoped in a witt. Its almost like a belgian ipa crossed a belgian whit. Its good but not amazing...this is deff not your classic of the style but a more obscure bitter version.

a hazy golden yellow color with a finger of white head. smells of lemongrass and slight farmhouse funk, citrusy orange. refreshing malt body with a lot of hoppy bitterness! never had a wheat beer like this before, lots of refreshing citrusy orange along with notes of grapefruit. almost a mint-like after taste from the hops.. really really nice.

a light-medium body beer with moderate amount of carbonation. very refreshing. for a witbier this is by far the best thing i've ever tasted. for a hop lover, this is such a different take on the usual hop profiles i go for, but works wonderfully. as far as beer goes, well it's a wonderful sessionable (if it weren't for the price tag) witbier - with a nice twist.

another great one i'm glad to have tried from evil twin.

A - Pours a yellow straw or golden in color. Very cloudy. Fluffy eggshell head.

S - Sweet malts, lemon zest, belgian yeast & light spices.

T - Lemon zest combined with orange peel to start off. Bitter all the way through. Yeast, bready, slight malt.

M - Light in body with somewhat high carbonation. Just right.

O - Impressed... This wit beer is hitting all the right notes. About as good as I've tasted from this style so far.
