On-tap at Capone's last night.

Came to me a cloudy, yellowish-orange color with a big, rocky white head. The head stuck around for a while and left some good lacing.

Aroma was of oranges, yeast, wheat, and some lemon zest. The citrus zing at the end is quite nice.

The flavor is of citrus fruit, wheat, a touch of yeast, and a bit of spice at the finish. Tasty.

Spritzy, crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing brew that would be perfect for a warm day. I have had it in bottles before, but it's even better on-tap.

Serving type: on-tap

A) Straw yellow, hazy summer ale. A bit thinner than most traditional Witte's but still very appealing

S) Zesty lemmon, mild spice, sour dough malt and mild hops

T) Very refreshing and mild. A juicey thirst quencher. Low alcohol.

M) Ample carbonation, thin, mild

D) A very good example of the American version of Witte Beer.

A - This beer pours a nice golden yellow with a nice 1" head.

S - Smell is some mild hoppiness along with some citrus.

T- You do get a good amount of hops right off the bat. As things settle...some lemon tartness is noted. The backside has some pleasant biscuit/bready notes with just a perfect touch of sweetness. The finish is dry, but refreshing.

M - Light bodied and decent carbonation.

O - Very nice beer. Better than your average American wheat. I really like the balance of the light hoppiness and the dry biscuit. Refreshing like an ESB almost.
