I got the chance to go to the opening party and a local food/beer dinner at Beer'd where I've tried this beer both times.

I will start this by saying I'm not a huge witbier guy. However, this was a nice surprise. The citrus aroma is pleasant but made me think it would be followed by a fruity flavor. The taste though is less wheaty (i.e., bluemoonish) and more Belgian inspired (i.e., hoegaardeny) along with a light banana flavor which I liked. Super crisp mouth feel with very nice carbonation. I'm sure it doesn't hurt that the beer is so fresh when you get it right from the brewery.

This is a great flagship brew for Beer'd in that it's not over the top giving it a mass appeal but the flavor is complex enough that even the nerdiest of beer nerds can appreciate this quality offering right in line with this beer style. Keep it up guys & gals!

Not a wheat beer fan and this one, while well made, didn't change my mind.

Had at the brewery yesterday, June 26. Poured a hazy straw color with a decent head. Smell was of some sweet citrus and a touch of yeast. The flavor profile tends to be more citrus as well, maybe it's a heavy application of coriander. Yeast and cracker malts in the background. Finishes a hair dry. The body was as to be expected, in the lighter range. Overally a good witbier.

Poured from a 32 oz growler straight from the brewery.

Pours a hazy, golden orange color with a minimal white head. Hardly any lacing left around the glass.

The smell is very citrusy with notes of orange peel and tangerine. The sweet biscuity malt is also present, however I'm only picking up faint hints of banana and clove.

Citrus is once again at the forefront of the flavor. I also get notes of banana and bitter hops. The sweet malt character is quite pleasant and adds a nice balance. Not too "wheaty" for a Witbier.

The feel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. It's a very dry finish with flavors that don't linger on the palate for very long.

Overall, a fantastic version of a style I'm frankly not a big fan of. It's juicy, it's hoppy, and the malt really holds this beer together.

Picked up a small growler at the brewery. This is supposedly their flagship beer, but I tended to enjoy their more hoppy offerings more. This us a really drinkable solid Wit that will appeal to a lot of folks looking for a tasty, easy to drink beer especially in the summer.

32oz growler from Beer'd. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with virtually no head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is slightly funky with some banana, clove, orange peel, and biscuits. The taste is more of the orange peel and banana followed by some cloves and funk. Biscuity malts with some bitter orange peel towards the finish. Creamy and crisp mouthfeel. Very drinkable. I've had this beer a bunch of times but have never reviewed it until now. Overall, a solid Wit.
