Sampling a fresh corked and caged 750 at cellar temp poured into a tulip snifter.
This was a gift from my friend Robbie who is helping get our house ready for sale. thanks!
the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with fluffy bleached white head foaming up 4 cm even with a gentle pour. The head recedes slowly leaving windowpane lattice on my glass. there is a sturdy surface layer of foam throughout my sampling.
Aroma is some grainy malt and a bit of citrus. A little bit of bready yeast and maybe slightly tart lemon. Appealing and just a little funky nose.
First sip reveals an average to light body with fine tingly carbonation that tickles my palate on each sip.
Flavor is some sweet tangy wheat malt and abit of lemon citrus that is stronger on the finish. I also get some bready yeast and a bit of a funky tart character. At the end of the bottle the yeast dregs make the beer sweeter and almost fruity like white grapes or pears.
This is a crisp enjoyable beer and I dont taste the 5.5% anywhere. A very nice beer that I am glad I had a chance to try. Worthy if you like Wit beers.

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.
Serving type: on-tap
