3.13/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Pours a very hazy lemonade color with a dish soap-like collar of head. The head didn't stay though. I forgot to do the swirl. No lacing.

Smells like apple juice, wheat, cinnamon, pickled fruits, and Jolly Ranchers. Definitely very sweet nose. Some artificialness. Not half-bad, though.

Cider, stewed apple, cinnamon stick, tangy wheat/yeast combo, hint of juicy pear, some buried-beneath-the-sugar malts, a notch above 'no hops'. Just wicked sweet. Syrupy, too. Just overwhelmingly apple cinnamon. Finishes with a short-lived astringency, like a solvent. After that flashes, just more residual sweetness.

Sticky. Thick body for the style, loaded up with all that sugar. Carbonation is soft. Not sure what this would need to improve on feel, other than less sugars. So-so drinkability.

Not really a witbier. I'd probably rate this respectably as an American Pale Wheat Ale. The girlfriend loves it, but this just isn't for me.

3.83/5  rDev +23.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Cloudy peach gold. Two inch head that lingers. Spotty lacing.

S - Delightful green apple and honey.

T - Wheat and malt are there. But the green apple and honey overshadow and compliment them perfectly.

M - Medium.

O - This stuff is fantastic! Only minor problem I have is that it should be labeled a shandy. Cheers!
