look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Very cloudy, fully opaque pastel yellow in color. Forms a smallish, fizzy white head. Little retention and just the faintest bit of lacing.

S: Aroma is a blend of yeasty phenols: some black pepper, a bit of coriander, and bright, fresh citrus notes.

T: Taste is more of the same, though the bright (and mildly tart) citrus notes do seem to dominate. Taste is fruity, like a blend of fruit juices. Kiwi and lemon/lime are the main players, along with orange and strawberry. Mild sweetness.

M: lighter bodied. Lighter carbonation. Low bitterness.

O: I'm not sure what to make of this beer. There are certain aspects that I like and others that I don't. I like the bright citrus notes, but the acidity and tartness are out of place for the style. Never-the-less, not a bad beer. Very refreshing and quite easy to drink on a warm summer day.

(Served in a tulip glass)
Batch 173
A- This beer pours a murky woody yellow body with a big snow white head that sticks to the glass with each sip. This beer is a bit to murky to see much carbonation.

S- The yeasty dried strawberry aroma has some unripe kiwi notes and a sweaty wheat note in the finish that takes on a little tartness as it opens.

T- the taste of dry field corn is mostly DMS with some fruity tart sumac flavors that lead to unripe kiwi, green woody notes and a quickly fading strawberry hint. The finish is slightly fruity with a fruity acidic taste that lingers.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a tight scrubbing little fizz but no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The odd corn DMS gets in the way but the nice sumac notes help to cut it a good bit. The fruity flavors are not really bright fruit character and it dries out even more as it opens.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I have a little trouble believing those who are down on this beer. Witibier is a great style, and this is quite an interesting take.

Appearance - The beer was a nice yellow straw color with a fluffy white head.

Smell - The aroma was sweet wheat with a hint of spice and banana notes. There is a lot going on here.

Taste - On the initial taste one notes the sour kiwi, strawberry, and the wheat. It begins almost like a sour before fading toward the wheat. My one complaint is that the taste kind of ends, leaving a rather weak finish.

Mouthfeel - The strong wheat leave a moderately thick texture that allows the taste to linger. The carbonation is also rather modest, furthering the staying power.

Overall - If I went by BA score, I might have purchased this. However, it was one of the clear winners at a recent bottle share.
