3.4/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Kept in the fridge for a few weeks this beer had a slight haze and light hue when poured. The creamy white foam diminished quickly but laces well. A blend of citrus, white wine, spices and yeast combine in an unique aroma.
The flavor is brought to life by the fruity taste and acidity.
The carbonation is lively but not that which is typically found in Belgian styles.

3.51/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a hazy straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured featured light esters and a touch of sweetness.

The taste was likewise mildly estuary with some citrus note and a wheat spice.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a serviceable wit.

3.43/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Slightly hazy, and pale straw in terms of color. The tightly beaded head is white, with a creamy top, and about two fingers deep. Leaves some soft, spotty lacing on the glass.

Smell: Lemon zest and coriander give way to a light yeasty, fresh-baked bread aroma. A very typical witbier bouquet.

Taste: More tart, and less sweet than other versions of the style, with the spicy citrus character hanging on tight to the tongue. A light mineral taste brings out some extra acidity. Reminds me of a stronger version of seltzer with lemon. A pretty thin flavor profile, overall.

Mouthfeel: Absolutely effervescent. Crisp and refreshing, and on its own, very appropriate for a witbier. The high carbonation, however, makes this already acidic beer even more dry.

Overall: I could see this appealing to some folks on a summer day, but I personally wished for more sweetness and less tartness, considering the style. This beer reminded me of both seltzer water with lemon and dry champagne, and I wonder if this was really what Weyerbacher was going for.

This is deff. a go to beer to keep in the fridge. It has a very smooth refreshing feel. Very crisp and light, great with food.

I was surprised that the smell of this beer was stronger than the actual taste.

I paired it with blue cheese, pita chips and green olives.
