3.61/5 rDev +4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
poured into glass nice hazy color typical for the class, average head.
Very nice aroma typical citrus and some yest/bready scents .
Taste was good well balanced maybe just a tad sweet on the back end but pleasant and refreshing would prefer just a bit more bold. Goes very good with a meal but probably not just for drinking without food.
I would probably drink again but would not go out and specifically seek this out all in all above average but no WOW factor.

3.24/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
I was anxious to try this as a fan of the style and a recent resident of San Diego County. It pours a nice orange, but the head is not impressive and quickly dissipates. The aroma is a bit weak with mostly honey and faint hints of citrus. The taste follows the aroma, but I think the honey sweetness is a bit overpowering. Overall the beer is not bad, but not great; however, I would drink it again. Despite an underwhelming taste, it was quite refreshing.

A: hazy; a deeper yellow that I would expect from a wit - likely due to the honey; 1 finger head that receded very quickly; almost no lacing;
S: like a wit, but the sweetness of the honey comes through as well;
T: the honey sweetness is predominant; any wit characteristics are buried in the background; no bitterness at all;
M: light bodied; light carbonation;
O:I like that brewers are experimenting with styles and I like trying those experiments, but the honey really doesn't work for me;
Serving type: on-tap
