4/5 rDev +12%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A yeasty, zesty, and fruity wheat driven aroma with hints of citrus fruit. Belgian yeast along with bready malt hints of wheat, grains, straw, and cracker. Zesty and tart hints of citrus orange and lemon. Hints of pepper spicing. Subtle hints of earthy hops. A pretty decent wheat aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a bready, fruity, and zesty wheat forward taste with nice notes of citrus. Yeast and pale malt with bready notes of wheat, straw, grains, and cracker. Nicely tart and zesty fruit notes of lemon and orange. Notes of pepper and coriander spice. Light backing note of earthy hops. A pretty solid wheat beer taste.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Crisp, juicy, and very smooth.
Overall: A pretty nice light wheat beer. Nice zesty fruit notes.

Cloudy pale golden color with one finger of head that quickly settled to a thin film. Moderate amount of lacing that the majority quickly recedes back into the body.
Nose full of wheat and a bit of sour apple. Not really any Belgian yeast qualities coming out.
This has more than a twang, but sour. Kind of reminds me of a gose without the salt. Good wheat flavor. Just a hint of Belgian yeast in the finish. Boom Island seems to not have added any spices to this witbier.
Light body with lively carbonation.
A good witbier but nothing extraordinary. The brewer did not follow the customary spice additions allowing the malt to come through without interference. Would of like a little bit more yeast qualities however.

A- Pale golden, somewhat hazy. Head is thin, and bone white. Retention is only so-so.
S- Aroma is wheat, with some floral notes, but it's hard to pull much out of the nose.
T- More of the same here. A thin wheat and floral flavor. It is lacking in the complexity I typically look for in the style.
M- Thin body, but good carbonation.
O- Didn't particularly care for this one. Boom Island makes several good beers, but this one is a pass for me in the future.

Thought I'd try a four pack of this witbier as the summer temps are starting to rise and I wanted something on the lighter side.
Overall, it's not a bad beer but I'm just not sure if the beer is just average or if I'm not much of a fan of the style. Probably a bit of both.
The most odd element of this beer is an dishsoap scent that becomes more pronounced as the beer warms a bit.
I've enjoyed several of Boom Island's beers, including Brimstone tripel and their hefeweizen but this witbier does not measure up to their standard lineup.

Appearance: Cloudy, murky yellow, ok head.
Smell: Old spilled beer/old wort, stale. Slight citrus hidden behind unsavory aroma.
Taste: Some citrus, flat sourness, dryness. Strange tasting.
Overall: Maybe it's an old bottle, but the label does mention funkiness. Totally misses the mark in my opinion. I might try it at the taproom to see if it is different on tap, as this bottle was pretty bad.
