3.15/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Pours pale straw with a towering head.
Nose shows doughy wheat, citrus, vegetal-like coriander and some out-of-place peppery phenols.
Lots mor citrus as a flavour, almost floral. Not much of the wheat character transfers through. Very light and fruity.
Carbonation is much too high in my opinion.

3.63/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale mustard colour, off-white dense head sunks to a whispy cloud. Lace consists of mildly sticky trails, opaque body with massive haze. Light trails of bead are visible through the murkiness. Good witbier look.

Smells very fruity; slight Belgian tart character with genuine orange aroma on there. Very citric with an underlying touch of fresh-cut grass, touch of lucerne and sage as well. Pretty decent aroma and good for the style.

Taste is predominantly grainy actually. Lots of slightly tart wheat notes creating grainy flavour that is a bit too dominant for the most part. It's not 'til late-mid that I get some mild orange peel notes with mild bitterness from the Belgian-style yeast. Grain returns late with some husky flavours, slightly bready as well. Not a bad wit, but could amp up the fruit and downplay the grain a bit more.

Bit of a texture body, slightly chewy with light carbonation tingle. Decent, yeah.

A decent wit, but not a spectacular beer overall.

4/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On-tap at the Local Taphouse.

Cloudy yellow in the body, with dark golden hints, certainly darker than usual for a wit. Fine bubbling white head. Body is light in weight. Decent enough for the style, but darker than it should be, and darker than necessary.

Nose is fresh and sharp, and almost spot-on for the style. Lovely curacao characters, and some fresh organics that deepen the experience. Something peppery and sharp (but it works), and a hint of plasticine. Really great.

Smooth enough of the palate, but here the peppery characters really add a sharpness that is unneeded. Almost a hoppy note, with plenty of spice. Finish is certainly peppery, with a bit of phenol. Orange characters finish sharply as well, giving a metallic and kirsch bite to the back palate.

Feel is smooth. It's lovely on tap.

It's a very good wit from a new brewery. There are some genuinely delicious characters to it, and it would stand up well against the exemplars of the style. Great work.
