Dispensed from a tap to a 12 oz. glass, the white-colored head of the Whirlwind Wit is remarkably big: three fingers initially reduced to one finger by the time I get to drink it. It is cloudy and orange-yellow in color, typical for the style.
In the nose, the aroma is spicy with hints of orange zest and banana. The banana becomes more evident when the aroma is brought into the mouth, in addition to a very crisp sensation.
It is rather rich on the first sip. The maltiness offers hints of citrus and apple. Surprisingly, the carbonation becomes more pronounced as the beer warms mid-glass. It actually becomes more refreshing as I drink it. It finishes clean and slightly sweeter.
Serving type: on-tap

Part of the Victory summer mix pack.
Pours a murky golden yellow, with a small half inch head, and not a whole lot of lacing.
Smells like wheat, grainy malt, spices and Belgian yeast.
The taste is very similar, with strong, but not overly bitter, wheat flavor, the typical witbier spices- coriander, mainly, with orange and citrus flavors, with moderate Belgian yeast flavors- I like that it's not as strong as some other versions of the style.
Light bodied, almost airy, with a crisp, strongly carbonated mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
Witbiers will never be my favorite style, but this is a pretty solid version of one. Nothing crazy or outstanding, but just eminently drinkable and tasty.

Enjoy By: 09 MAY 2015
A: Pours a very lightly cloudy yellow color with almost no head that dies down to nearly nothing
S: Some nice banana and clove notes up front with a definite Belgian yeast influence. Some fruitiness under that, as well as the wheat malts with a bit of bubblegum sweetness
T: Starts off with the banana and clove, Belgian yeast, and fruitiness. The wheat comes through mid-way, along with the bubblegum sweetness. Finishes with lingering bubblegum notes and spices
M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation
O: A nice American witbier that is very drinkable and great in the summer. Great part of the new summer mixed 12-pack. This and Summer Love alone make the pack worth picking up
