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

Served in a flite glass at the brewery ~39F.

I know this uses a lager yeast but somehow Singlecut managed to make it taste no so lagery. I don't get any of those yeasty or malty ketones that are usually present in a helles or adjunct lager.

It really tasted like a glass of fresh squeezed tangerine juice to me, and it even had a similar texture and color.

A little bit cloudy, light orange copper. Fruit juicey nose with a light but present body and texture.

Almost zero alcohol taste at all.

I would definitely purchase again and certainly in a growler.

Singlecut just keeps getting better and better in the flavor department, and their distribution footprint is also getting wider in terms of draft kegs.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a hazy yellow, with a half inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

This one smells like mild wit spicing, esters, and citrus.

This is a very drinkable, but slightly boring lager. The wit spicing on this one is pretty subtle, which is honestly good in my book. But beyond some generic citrus, there's not a whole lot else to this one. Don't get me wrong, it tastes good, but there's not much to this one.

This is light bodied, with a juicy and crisp mouthfeel, along with a normal level of carbonation.

A little pedestrian but ultimately still pretty tasty anyway.

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.

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.
