3.55/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
22oz. bomber poured into tulip glasses and shared with the wife, poured at 40F.
A - Very similar in appearance to lemon juice, same color and consistency. Slight carbonation, but no real head or ring develops. Meh...
S - Really fragrant. Strong sweet (natural) orange, mandarin orange IMO. Wheat, coriander and fresh grass in the background. Actually smells really appealing.
T - I wish it were a lot bolder in its taste, and the complexity is low. What taste there is though is nice and in keeping with the wit style. There is a lot of orange on the mouth as well, similar to adding a slice of orange or two to a beer. Thats a practice I'm not fond of (why not just drink better beer?), but its the best way to describe this.
M - Really watery, unremarkable but inoffensive. Makes for a very drinkable but not very memorable beer.
O - I'd like to say I enjoyed it more, but it was just alright for me. I wouldn't like to have it very often, but if it was paired up with dinner at someones house I wouldn't be disappointed. Just OK

3.85/5 rDev +11%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Cloudy yellow with a short-lived head.
Smell: Lemon and wheat.
Taste: Crisp citrus and wheat, faint soybean-like yeast flavor, balanced herbal finish (lavender).
Mouthfeel: Crisp, thin, well carbonated
Overall: There are a lot of beers that are refreshing on a hot day. This does that, and also has some complexity in the taste.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.
A - Cloudy peach. Zero head. Spotty lacing.
S - Oranges and orange zest with a little wheat.
T - Oranges and zest, some wheat. Finishes quite nicely with a peppering of hops.
M - Medium/light
O - This is just begging to be a great wit. Perhaps it needs some lemon? Still a very pleasant brew. Would make a decent session.
