Pint at Golden Crust.

Opaque pastel yellow orange, tight cap of creamy white foam, lasting skim and intricate rivulet lacing around the edges.

Big wheat and coriander aroma, fresh and floral, almost a daffodil vibe.

Dry and lightly bitter, definitely not on the sweet end of the wit spectrum thankfully. Orange peel bitterness in the aftertaste. Light smooth feel, tasty, clean,and easy drinking. Pleasant and worth a try. Not many local Witbiers, this one I'd recommend if you're a fan of Rev's Bottom Up Wit.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Durty Nellie's.

God, weather here can sometimes suck, but drinking a new wit in February when it's as warm as it is today helps balance things out. This stuff pours a lightly hazy straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises grapefruit peel, very light banana, and cracked wheat. The taste holds notes of orange rind, very light coriander, and light grass. The body is a rather light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a nice wit, but one that just comes across a bit lackluster, with little yeast character and a incredibly mild spicing. it ain't bad, just nothing I'm likely to order again, especially considering the plethora of good wits out there.
