Cloudy yellow gold pour with a small airy white head. Aroma is lemony with a little grain. Taste is very grainy with wheat and yeast upfront. Also has a bit of coriander and light citrus in the light to medium body. Finishes dry and crisp with a grainy aftertaste.

Better than the more traditional witbiers on the market.

Poured into Lakewood tulip. Hazy, straw-colored appearance with two fingers of white foam dissipating eventually into a quarter-finger of tight, creamy lacing. A really nice-looking beer. Front of the tongue has big cracker-y notes from the yeast, giving way to the coriander and orange peel in the middle. Slight citrus bitterness on the back end, like a ripe white grapefruit, with a semi-dry finish. Good example of the style from one of DFW's more exciting breweries.

Hazy pinkish-yellow in color. Off-white head clears out quick. Smells of melon, orange, grapefruit, malt, and coriander. The spice is tasted up front, followed by orange zest, grain, mineral water and yeast. Slides smooth as expected with a creamier than expected mouth-feel. A unique and flavorful wit from a brewery that I'm growing to like more and more with each try.

Very pale straw-colored beer, with a medium head of snow-white foam and fine lacing. Aroma is disappointing for a wit, though--a tad grainy malt with just a hint of tartness. Flavor is a bit more on style: you can get the orange peels and a little coriander. Very attenuated, with little malt sweetness at all, and a light tartness. All the essential components are there, but it's still a little bland overall, like a modern Hoegarden. One thing they did get really right is the light, spritzy, well-carbonated body.

A pretty good wit, but not an outstanding one.

I'm not going to leave you hanging about my opinion; this is one great beer. I have never given a review with the ratings that I give this beer, but here's why...

A - It pours almost clear from the bottle. literally. In the glass, it is a beautiful varying density translucent white-straw color with a 1 finger head comprised of large and small bubbles.

S - Spice and yeast. Exactly as I am expecting.

T - Bread, spices, and citrus. It is hard for me to describe beyond these terms as it is for me the perfect mix of these three flavors. It leaves a bit of a tang for a finish.

M - It has a medium density feel; not thick, but not watery like a "lite" beer. There is carbonation, no doubt, but not to the point that it feels like soda.

O - For a wit bier it is the standard by which I will measure all others. There is another reason that I love this beer. The label claims that this beer is made in the style of Pierre Celis, and frankly, they have nailed it. If you are unfamiliar with the late, great Mr. Celis, please google him. He was a fantastic Belgian brewer but not so great of a business man. He also brewed in Texas under the label of Celis Brewery in the 90's. As best as my taste buds can recall, this beer is a dead ringer for the Celis White and is one of the reasons I fell in love with craft beers.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

L: Murky frosted yellow with white fizzy cap. Not much lacing to speak of. 3.75

S: Bitter and dry with lemon and hay, then quickly balanced by a honey sweetness. 4.5

T: This is very close to being tart. Much more flavorful than your average wit with a ton of yeast and grain flavor. All above characteristics and none of them are skimped. 4.5

F: Manages to be crisp and light, yet coats the tongue well. Fantastic. 5

O: Another solid offering from a brewery who's regular lineup is strong. Tons of flavor pakced in to a low abv beer. Very glad I grabbed this. 4.5
