A summer seasonal Wit/tripel cross on tap at the Atlanta Yard House.

A: looks like a wit beer: very hazy light yellow with a very good head.

Aroma: refined wheat beer with a hint of orange peel.

Flavor: lightly tart and bitter, wth building wheat and baked bread flavors.

Fee: light body; ecellent, soft carbonation.

On-tap at Monk's Café after meeting the brewer(ess?).

Pours an almost opaque lemon-yellow color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of light malts with mild amounts of wheat twang. Also present are large amounts of floral aromas with moderate amounts of light citrus.

Tastes good. Soft light malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by solid light citrus flavors. Midway through the sip moderate amounts of earthy hop flavors make a brief appearance before giving way to wheat twang. The wheat and citrus flavors carry through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have another.

Overall I was a fan of this beer - not quite a traditional wit but with very subtle differences. Worth a shot.

On tap at Rose & Crown.

Pours hazy yellowish in color with a lasting two-finger fluffy white head.

Nice aroma - very wheaty with citrus peel, Belgian yeast, and a little banana.

Well-balanced and tasty, only slightly sweet, with a very light wheaty taste, orange and lemon zest, Belgian yeast, and spice.

The mouthfeel is amazing on this beer. Incredibly silky and smooth, like air almost. Medium-light body, but not at all watery, just incredibly smooth.

A very nice witbier overall. Extremely drinkable.

On tap in a tulip glass at Pizzeria Paradiso, DuPont Circle Washington, D.C.:

The beer appeared a nice, opaque bright orange, with a thin white head, which I will attribute to the bartender.

A nice aroma, what you would expect from the style...a sweet malt presence with floral and citrus hops.

The taste of the beer was good...that nice wheat backbone with hints of the citrus hops as well as a nice strong spice and pepper.

The beer had a lighter feel to it, as expected, but was very refreshing, it had good carbonation, it was smooth and I finished it too quickly. Overall, a very good beer.

On tap at Bottleworks.

Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of white head, good retention.

Smell is soothing clove and coriander, a bit of straw and a hint of yeast.

Taste is wheaty, barnyard up front, lots and lots and lots of hay. A bit of clove toward the end. The yeast is present, but overpowered by the horsey taste.

Easy drinking, smooth, and light bodied.

Great beer.

On tap at Stags Head in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a brilliant cloudy golden orange color. A two finger white head forms, and recedes to a ring. Light lace is left behind.
S: Musky, dusty, basement like funk up front. Spicy clove, and fruity esters follow that are great. Slightly tart lemon grass, banana, and pears.
T: Follows the nose. Basement like funk, peppery spice, clove. Slightly tart fruits. Lemon, banana, pears, even some apple skins. I love it.
M/D: A medium body that boarders on over carbonation, but that works perfectly. So crisp, dry and refreshing. Incredibly enjoyable and easy to drink. I can drink this all day.

A wonderful example of a Belgian Witbier. I love it and something I would highly recommend.

Being bombarded by all the summer beers that showcase wheat, grain and some sort of spice to a dizzying array of ho-humness, its as refreshing to the spirit as it is the palate to sip on the delicate refinement of authentic witbier from Belgium.

Its intentional cloud perfectly scatters its pale straw hues while building a long-lasting mousse on top. Popping with brightness, its highly perfumy scent embarks upon soft orange blossom, honeysuckle, candied lemon and bubblegum delicacy. Its light bready sweetness highlights a sense of candy and grain.

The floral nature of the beer dissipates over the middle and its spicy semblance balances to near perfection. White pepper, coriander, dried citrus and mint all tether through the grain sweetness and creamy breadlike body.

Mild herbal bitterness provides a clean, crisp and evaporative cooling that refreshes the palate as the wheaten body dissolves and allow the lemon-like acidity to prevail. Still plagued by its unweilding cereal grain, the finish is saved by a bready aftertaste and an afterglow of perfume.

On tap at Lucky Baldwin’s Delirium Cafe in Sierra Madre, CA.

Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, and yeast. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.
