4.22/5  rDev +22.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

APPEARANCE: Hazy and straw yellow in color, the White pours with a stark-white, precarious, half inch head on top. The head quickly collapses into a thick ring around the edge of the glass while hundreds of bubbles leisurely float to the top trying to rescue the dying layer of foam on top.

SMELL: Banana and bubble gum greet the nose with a little lemon and spice (clove, a hint of black pepper) lurking beneath it. The aroma is very pleasant, but could be stronger.

TASTE: There is a lot of fruit up front on this one. A big wave of citrus crashes into the palate up front, but instantly is overtaken by sweet, bready malt. The tail end is a spicy and, once again, citrusy conclusion.

MOUTHFEEL: This is a very well balanced beer and the mouthfeel is outstanding. It’s sweet to start, but has a sharp, pronounced, dry finish that hits the middle/back part of the tongue hard enough to almost create a pucker. The body is light overall and a friendly, light carbonation tickles the palate in just the right way.

OVERALL: This is an exceptionally well made beer. Given the style, this is a beer that could easily be overlooked, but after taking some time to sit down and focus on this beer, it really is quite delicious. Plus, the can looks great. (1,253 characters)

16 oz can. Pours clear straw yellow with a big meringue-like white head that retains well and laces the glass some. The second pour is a bit hazy.

The aroma is sweet wheaty malt and some funky fruit and banana with a bit of coriander and perfume.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malt with musty yeast and very little spice. The finish is pretty bitter for the style. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with very spritzy active carbonation.

Overall, meh for a wit. It's a bit sweet and musty with no spice. (508 characters)

Had a pint at Root Down in DIA. The spices come on too strong for a great wit, but the body and backing wheat are right. Lovely, but I'd prefer an Allagash White. (162 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Hazy opaque orange. Two fingers of silky white head. Light carbonation.

Smell: Wheaty. Light floral citrus. Some pepper.

Taste: Bready wheat. Pretty spicy. Crisp citrus refreshment. Pretty average.

Feel: Good body on this one. Crisp and refreshing. Easy to put away. Fairly dry finish.

Overall: Not bad for a $10 4-pack of tall boys. Others I'd rather have but this one isn't offensive in any way. Just don't stand out. (429 characters)

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a hazy murky soft golden color. An impressive bright white fluffy head hangs around for a long while, leaving bubbly, airy lacing.

The aroma is sweet and fruity, maybe even tangy somehow. A little bit of banana peel in the finish.

The taste is really sweet and malty up front. A lot of bread and grain notes mix with banana and subtle tropical fruits.

The mouthfeel is somewhat light and carbonated.

Overall, a refreshing witbier with good character. Would be a great deck beer in warmer months. (545 characters)
