Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a perfect hazy light straw with a finger of white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma mild, but dominated by lemon citrus with only hints of wheat; a surprising citrus hop aroma from the bottle upon opening, but was not that evident in the glass. Flavor is subdued lemon citrus, mild wheat, hints of clove and lemon rind with a light hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A lemon citrus variation on a witbier with less wheat flavor, but the wheat does seem to provide a pleasant balanced body. Understated, but refreshing and well balanced. A nontraditional, but nice citrusy take on the style. Standard Base Camp crown capped aluminum bottle. This would be a good choice for a backpack; cooled in a stream this would taste good and lemony refreshing after a day of hiking.

Really attractive cloudy light yellow brew with a long-lasting foam in the narrow Ureich tulip. Pleasant sudsy mouthfeel. Quite dry taste without a lot of malt flavor. Thinner and sharper than a lot of Witbiers.

This is well made and quite nice in the foam department, but it is more austere than I like in a Wit. Restrained spice is a plus, but it's very mineral tasting. From the 22 oz can purchased at New Seasons Market in Portland.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from 22oz aluminum bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: cloudy and silvery-white body with a massive head of loose white foam. Dissipation leaves big chunks on the glass and supported on top of the head. Great.

Smell: grainy with a hint of funk and a light, citrusy spicing. The funk and citrus may all be due to the hops; whatever it is, though, it has a bit of a farmhouse character to it that strongly appeals to me.

Taste: there's just a lightly funky and sour character here that makes me think of this as half-and-half saison and witbier. It's mild but very tasty. Perhaps intentional, perhaps not, but I really like this beer.

Mouthfeel: light body with a huge carbonation and a mouth-filling but evanescent creaminess. I think it's great.

Overall: what a crazy beer. It's hugely refreshing and it really appeals to me. At first blush it almost seems like it's gone off, but it's gone off in a way that really freakin' works for me.

Packaged 3/10/15.

Pours a murky light whitish-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, citrus fruit, and dried citrus peel aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus juice, dried citrus peel, and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with light and refreshing citrus flavors.

Serving type: can.

Lost Meridian Wit pours a hazy golden color with a huge lacing head. There is a lemon rich aroma. The taste has a noticeable hop bite, big lemon and citrus flavors. A bit watery but still nice flavors. Overall, its not a spicy as it should, hoppeir and big lemon flavors.
