I have had this one on tap a few times at the Bier Garden in Portsmouth VA and never wanted to take enough time from my pure enjoyment to make notes for a review. Had the bottled version tonight and here's the review. Great Wit..This is the standard that I would measure other Witbiers against. Pours a cloudy dull color..very dense with a huge carbonated white head (on a hard pour) that very slowly melts down to a small head. The wheat flavor predominates with some citrus (lemon) and spiciness (mostly pepper). The mouthfeel is crisp and rich and drinkability is great. This is one to savor, or to have with food or for mass consumption (I would still have to drink it slow to enjoy every bit of the flavor. A definite winner!!!

Slightly hazy lemon with a modest ivory head. Orange zest, clove, wheat, lemon, coriander, and floral hops form the very strong aroma. Banana emerges late. Flavor is slightly more subdued, with citrus leading, and becoming bready and toasted mid palate. Citrus notes strengthen in subsequent sips, dominating the profile.
Delicious take on the style. I love the bready malt presence, and the fact that it's not bubblegum or banana laden until the finish.
