3.53/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Cloudy yellow color but with an amazing two-finger white head, but almost no lace. This is one of the cloudiest ales I've ever seen.

Smell: Spices were very noticeable, particularly the strong pepper notes of the coriander and the citrus (although it could have been orange, to me it was more like lemon).

Taste: The spices are definitely the show stealers here, leaving the malt and hops to hoof it gamely in the chorus. Under it all, though, is a very serviceably melody of a solid wit ale that was the perfect tune for a hot summer evening.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation was almost overpowering – a bit much, really, like it was tap-dancing on my tongue. The yeast definitely brought some bready qualities, but it wasn’t too bad.

Overall: I don’t love bitter wits, but this could be an exception. I may pick up another bottle and do some food pairing tests just to see if – as the label says – that it pairs well with certain types of foods.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

a super clean straw yellow pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. smells of bready yeast, lemon, orange peel, and coriander. tastes citrusy sweet with a bready bacbone and slight hoppy bitterness. light body with a slightly creamy feel, highly carbonated, crisp and refreshing. as far as witbiers go, this is excellent. the high carbonation makes this a MUST for summertime weather. i feel weird giving such a plain beer style such a high rating, but as far as the style goes, this takes the cake.

Pours a relatively clear yellow with a white head. Some wheat an bread, a somewhat citric and lemony. A little bit of banana and good coriander aroma. Flavor is citrusy and lightly tart. Orange and lemon, bread, and light banana. Not too much coriander, but a little bit on the finish. Lightly sweet in the back end. Very light body with high carbonation.

A: poured a very pale straw yellow in color with slight pale orange highlights and no head that left no lacing at all on the glass.

S: lots of herbs in the aroma with a little citrus, plenty of bretty funkiness, maybe. Slight pineapple in the background and hints of booze.

T: the funkiness is definitely there on the taste as well alongside herbs, slight citrus, belgian yeast character and hints of booze.

M: the brew was light in body with low amount of carbonation which had a sweet, yeasty, bretty funky and slight crisp finish.

O: I thought it was just ok and a little thin for the style.

On tap at BRC in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a slightly hazy, but dull pale yellow/orange color. More pale than anything else. At first a two finger white head forms and recedes in a second. Light lace.
S: Snappy, spicy yeast. Very soft coriander, soft biscuit malt aromas. Everything is enjoyable, but very muted.
T: Follows the nose. Peppery, phenolic yeast is light and subtle. Coriander is soft as is the biscuity malts. Everything is just to mellow.
M/D: A medium body that is crisp and effervescent. A bit thin however. Not hard to drink at all. Though there is not much here to grab on to.

Not bad, but just inoffensive and to bland, I guess soft is the word, for me just too subtle. There are plenty of other great Wits around. Other Texas breweries at that. I am not going to discourage anyone from buying this, but not anything I am coming back to soon.

11.1 oz beer in a Belgian 'Duvel-esque' bottle with a bottled on date of 03/02/12, batch 001. Pours hazy, dark gold color with a slightly pinkish hue. Small white head is as white as can be and shows some decent retention but not much lace.

Smell is...well...different, thats for sure. Not a whole lot of soft coriander and the orange peel is strong, a little pithy even. Has a subtle sweetness, but the spices are heavy on the aroma, a little mint even creeps in.

Taste is a little more integrated, but I am still not getting much of the coriander to help soften the sharp citric fruit peels...maybe orange, maybe a little lemon zest too? It plays along fairly well as a whole, but some of the parts have me wondering what the brewer was trying to accomplish. The mouthfeel is rather thin, and it has some sort of herbalness to it that tastes a little like sage or rosemary. It is an interesting take on the style and I enjoyed this bottle, but I dont think I will seek it out regularly. At 1.99 a bottle, it is well worth the gamble.

4.08/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Hazy, brownish pear color with plenty of loose yeast in suspension and plenty at bottom of bottle and glass. Thin, quickly dissipating white head leaves no lacing.

S- A bit sour (my brother and co-taster agreed). Coriander and a light citrus.

T- Much more complex than smell indicates. Sweet with a hefeweizen type bubble gum flavor and aftertaste. Orange/citrus flavor is more prominent.

M- Light-bodied with dry afterfeel.

O- Had Scratchin' Hippo at a beerfest recently and actually poured it out. This is a much stronger effort. A bold wit that i recommend you seek out.

12oz stubby sent as an extra by ThirstyHerf. Batch 1, bottle 1129. Poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy orange-gold with a nice tuft of white foam. Decent retention, no lacing.

S: Soft perfumy yeast, coriander, vanilla, pale malt.

T: Mild coriander, cakey malt, floral spice, a bit of citrus, big wheat in the finish.

M: Lively carbonation, light-bodied.

O: Not the best wit I've ever had - a bit weak. Still pretty nice.
