This wit is the typical pale yellow color, and it's got a bit of a gleam to it. It is heavily hazed, to the point of opacity. The head, which reaches one finger and dwindles down slowly, is as pure and bright a white as I've ever seen, and it puts down sturdy patching with the beer's recession.
There's some nice spicing along with a wheat and lemon twang. It gets the earthy must down well, too. Emphasis leans very much on the clove and coriander smell, while the flavor pulls out a little more of the lemon zest on the front, then moves to must, then a little leaf and sour/tang combination at the end. While a light note of fruits can be derived from the yeast in the nose, some subtlety is lost in flavor that's more heavy on hops than most. Still, it's a good Americanization without losing tradition, and a good beer.
The motuhfeel works well, though the body has slightly more heft and slightly less depth than the great ones. Still, it's just barely medium-bodied, with a nice crispness, smoothness, and brightness.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

a different sort of take on the witbier, very americanized, with a much more robust hop profile than the traditional ones, and with a bit more of an alcohol kick too. sturdy brew this one, well carbonated and more blonde than white in color with a prominent but short lived white head. the nose hints at orange peel and coriander, but the belgian yeast part never comes, and it sort of falls a bit flat in that regard in smell. the flavor has only a hint of fruity belgian yeast, and is instead fueled mostly by the orange peel and the hops, which are in much higher proportion than i am used to in the style. its bitter and slightly vegetal, but without ever sacrificing refreshment. not as wheaty as i am used to either, this one is obviously balanced out by some very pale or even pils malts, which lends to drinkability in this instance. fruity citrusy hoppy finish and prickly tickley bubbles that dry it up. not my favorite example of the style, but i like how it goes in its own direction. my first beer from rivertowne has me curious for more of their stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass
A: Very hazy white with just a hint of yellow and a lingering one-finger head
S: Lots of malt, wheat, some coriander and orange as mentioned on the label
T: Matches the nose; very wheat-driven, a touch sweet
M: Fairly soft from all the wheat, light-bodied
O: Very refreshing, could be even better with just a bit more complexity

The artwork on this can is amazing!

A beer that gets better with each sip.

It will creep up on you being 6.1% because it is really good and easy to just keep drinking.

It's a real Belgian wit w some orange fruit flavor and a little bite to it.

Another top beer from Rivertowne Brewing
