On draft at Black Bear, Mineola, NY.

Poured a hazy straw hue with a two finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and lacing.

The smell featured moderate esters.

The taste was likewise estery with a grainy pane malt and herbal hop.

The mouthfeel was full for the style.

Overall an interesting take on a wit. Light and refreshing.

From 07/29/14 notes. had this on tap at Fool's Gold in NYC. 16 oz. pour in a pint glass for $5, can't beat that price.

a - Pours a yellow-golden color with one finger of fluffy bright white head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks good.

s - Smells of oranges, citrus hops, fruity malts, tropical fruits, spice, pepper, floral notes, herbal notes, and earthy malts. A nice nose, lots of citrus and oranges which I like a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, pepper, spices, bready malts, fruity malts, oranges, tropical notes, wheat, and grains. More bread and spice here and less hops and citrus, but nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not bitter, pretty easy to drink overall.

o - Overall not my favorite witbier or SingleCut beer, but it is a decent to good witbier...I see it as a better Blue Moon. Little too much spice and pepper in the taste for me; if the hops from the nose came through more in the taste this could be a big winner. Worth checking out, could see a lot of non-craft fans who like Blue Moon loving this one.

Pint glass on tap in Brooklyn. I was initially very excited when I saw the description for this beer. The appearance and smell were amazing and pungent. I love all things Wit, but the amount of grapefruit in this beer is overwhelming to the point where it just wasnt enjoyable to drink. Tweak the recipe and you'd have an excellent beer.

Suggested by my friend, in all the times I've come to the brewery I never tried this one

A: Hazy! This is based on a witbier and it very much has that appearance. Light straw color with a touch of yellow hue, excellent head and retention.

S: Wow. A bouquet of orange blossom, spice, rose, pepper and sweet wheat malt. Amazing

T: I was not prepared for the uniqueness of this brew! Overall taste of light bitter orange with a tea-like spice complexity. Finishes with a nice bite from pink peppercorns. Goes down too easily.

M: NIce body without compromising drinkability.

O: Not a style I'd reach for as I'm a hop-head but I can see the popularity of this brew
