On draft.

Hazy orange-ish witbier with a fair white head. Dissipates quickly.

Oddly sweet, individual citrus and spices evident. Overall effect oddly like caramel. Not caramel malts. Caramel.

Slightly sweet generally average and inoffensive wit.

Medium bodied ale, slightly above average carbonation.

Definitely a very very average, maybe even below average beer.

Poured from tap into a standard pint glass.

A: A murky hazy medium golden color with a one finger fluffy head.

S: Smells of yeast mix with spices, coriander, orange, lemon and some spicey notes.

T: The citrus comes out first with flavors of orange, tangerine and some lemon. The fruit then takes the back seat to the heavy spicy flavors with coriander, wheat flavors and some brown sugar and gingerbread sweetness. For me, the gingerbread flavor was fairly prevalent. Finish stays wheaty with some citrus returning and a lingering sweetness.

M: Yeasty, sweet, lighter mouthfeel.

O: I don't really get it but I hear this beer sells really well. For me, it was just another average wheat beer not worth seeking out again.
