Three Floyds latest offering pours a cloudy, glowing orange in color with a thin white head, although generous lacing sheets my pint glass.
Very yeasty & earthy with a lot of spiciness in the nose. Pepper along with fresh cut grass.
The taste is very true to style, something surprising from FFF, but welcome in this instance. Earthy yeast, corriander & pepper are all here in the taste. Dry finish. Lightish in body, a bit creamy & very gently carbonated. Goes down nice & easy like a wit should.

Draft at Floyds.’ Hmm... that’s what a fresh wit is supposed to taste like. My first thought was "Well Wheated!" A thin, lacy head, cloudy yellow body. Full of lemon, orange and some pineapple (from the hops?) flavor. Very light on the wit-type spiciness. Comes across more grassy than bitter. A wonderfully balanced beer.

Had on tap at FFF. Poured to a straw color with medium thick white had that lingered well and left okay lacing. Aroma was a pleasant mix of clove, oranges, lemons and cookie dough. Mouthfeel of this medium-bodied, well balanced beer leaned a little to the hoppy bitter side, but offset by sweet malt asa well. Flavor was spicy fruit and cookie dough, and the finish pleasant.

This is promoted by FFF as a Winter brew, due no doubt to the spices, but at only 4.7%, and with the fruit flavor, it would make a decent summer beer as well.
