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
