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

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.

The beer comes in a cloudy gold color.

The aroma is fresh and spicy with pepper and coriander, herby and wheat.

The flavor follows with a wheat and biscuit breadiness, but also spice with the pepper.

It's an interesting drinking beer. It's for those who like spicy wheat beers. Mouthfeel is light, but the flavor makes up for that.
