3.94/5  rDev +4%

Lemony 50-50% blend of wit and pilsner - perfect for summer seafood.

A: Tasted at the brewery on draft, first of the summer 14 season.
Pours a hazy, pale yellow color with two inches of white head and moderate retention and lots of lace.

S: Smells like a laid back American shore belgian. Not as intense spice, coriander, but a true cousin. Yeast and esters are well married to the pilsner. Reminds me of great pilsners as much as great Wits - as billed.

T: Follows the nose but it's both more powerful, with more body and back bone, so it will be matched well with clams, oysters, flounder, fish fry.

MF: Medium body, low carbonation, creamy. Compares very well with Bells Oberon.

O: Close second to Bells Oberon, and Alagash as America's best Wit that I have reviewed so far, tied with Southampton Publick House, Double Wit.

3.98/5  rDev +5%

Witbier brewed with 50% wheat and 50% pilsner malts, and lemony Sorachi Ace hops.

From 08/07/13 notes. Had this on tap at Stag's Head in NYC.

a - Pours a hazy, pale yellow color with two inches of fluffy white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of bananas, cloves, spices, wheat, bread , Belgian style yeast, light coriander, light lemon and citrus hops. Nice nose, love the bananas but a little more spice than I would have liked.

t - Tastes of bananas, lemon, citrus hops, fruity malts, wheat, grains, spice, pepper, cloves, yeast, pale malts, earthy malts, and coriander. Nice taste, better than the nose, with more fruit and less spice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Body is super creamy and smooth, and very easy to drink. Great mouthfeel.

o - Overall a really nice witbier; I like the addition of the Sorachi Ace hops to a witbier. Taste is great, as is the mouthfeel, hoping they make this one more often.
