look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - bright yellow with a short-lived, bubbly, white head

S - very faint lemon and orange zest, maybe some faint spice

T - lemon, orange zest, a bit tart

M - very crisp, a bit over carbonated, light to medium bodied

This is a very easy to drink, refreshing beer. It's simplistic and lack any spices, but it has a citrusy, drinkable flavor nonetheless. This isn't my favorite Wit but it is better than a few others. I wouldn't turn this down in the future.

Half finger head on a hazy straw body. Aroma is very mild with mostly wheat and little else. The body is creamy with moderate carbonation. Flavor is also bland with wheat and very light malts. Non descript sweetness. Overall highly drinkable but so is water. Not exciting but definitely refreshing.

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a great level of lacing.

Smell – Fruit aromas of citrus orange and lemon as well as hints of banana are strongest. These are mixed with lighter notes of yeast, wheat and a coriander spice, which overall create a very classic wit aroma.

Taste – The taste begins a bit on the wheaty side with notes of lemon and coriander spice mixed within. As the taste advances the lemon gives way to a more orange citrus taste. Toward the end the now sweeter (but not really sweet) flavor mixes with a bready flavor, leaving a very lightly sweetened wheaty flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The mouthfeel is on the thin side with the carbonation level being above average. Both are rather fitting for making for a very refreshing style beer - Light and flavorful.

Overall – While nothing to go out of your way for, it is easy drinking and refreshing and good for a nice summer day.

A - pours a slightly hazey marigold color. Bubbly white foam is thick after a rigorous pour but quickly dissipates leaving just a bit of lacing in the glass.

S - interesting aroma. It's thick reminiscent of white flour. Spicy notes of coriander, cardamon and just a hint of herbs. Lots of citrus character; bitter orange peel, lemons and lime zest.

T - flavor profile is interesting as well. Malt profile is off-dry and lays somewhere between crackers and dough. Spices enter mid palate adding depth along with some yeasty character. Refreshing citrus notes round out the flavor for a quick finish.

M - light bodied. Slick, slightly watery texture. Medium carb with tight bubbles.

O - an excellent summer ale. Not quite up to traditional wit beer standards but quaffable and refeshing. A must try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Well it's a cloudy golden to brass with a foamy one inch head on top.

Aroma: Orange peel, coriander, lemon zest, light dryness in the nose with a hint of floralness. Minor grain notes with a light bready texture.

Taste: Buttery texture on the palate with a floral hop bite. Lemon zest, orange peel, faint pear way in the back. A good dry finish as well.

Notes: A solid Witbier nicely drinkable. Cheers.

A: pours a hazy yellow with clinging white head

S: smells of banana and corriander a bit of yeast

T: tarty and fruity but not overpowering. Well balanced beer

M: light and bubbly, perfect for this style. Slight pucker is perfect for a hot day

D: very drinkable beer, I don't like wit beers and I can easily drink this beer all day

A - Well I don't know about this one since mine had a ring of sediment at the base of the bottle resulting in a pour that wasn't hazy at all. Quite eerie for a Witbier since it looked like a lager with a 1/4 inch of sticky white head.

S - Smell is pretty mild with tones of lemon and coriander. Yeast is fruity smelling yet equally mild.

T - Again I can't knock this too hard since it is a spring release (at least 3 months old) but mostly mild lemon, orange peel, coriander, and a finish of fruity yeasts.

M - With age the body is more watery than I wanted but it was still very drinkable.

Overall I may want to try this again fresh (springtime next year) and re-review it. Yet I have never seen a Witbier drop off so quickly in all aspects.

A-a hazy golden with a ring of white head around the top

S-pale malts, banana, cloves, and yeast

T-pale malts, yeast, slight fruitiness and citrus, finishes watery and weak

M-light to medium body, high carbonation, a somewhat thin body

Overall it is an ok representation of the style, easy to drink but not especially flavorful

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.

A: Pours very hazy; can't see through this one. Golden blonde, kinda dark for the style, looks promising.

S: Nice, wheaty, citrusy, floral and pretty. Great smell. Should poured this into a tulip.

T: Excellent, yeasty front with a clean, refreshing citrus middle and a sourdough, wheaty finish. Perfect example of the style. Mouthfeel is a little flat.

D: I could easily polish off a sixer on a hot summer day.

Overall an awesome summer beer, two steps up from something like Shock Top or Blue Moon, definitely a top notch wit, I really like this one.
