4.33/5 rDev +4.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A - Poured a cloudy, pale yellow. There is a relatively low head that pops up, retains for a short while, and forms a film on the top of the beer. The visible carbonation is quite lively, and the fine, small bubbles aid in the formation of light lacing on the sides of the glass.
S - Really nice strength of aroma here. The yeast leads the way with light banana, some sweetness and hints of spice.
T - Follows the nose. The flavor is complex, yet light. Typical wheat beer flavors with very light spiciness. Normally I'm wary of beers brewed with spices, but these add to the beer, rather than becoming the dominant presence.
M - Really nice. Medium-bodied with supporting carbonation that leaves a tingle on the tongue. It has a mildly dry finish, with a slightly funky aftertaste.
O - I could easily go through a six pack of these, particularly in the warmer months. Normally I savor a beer for 20 or more minutes, and I drained this one in less than 10. Definitely wanted a second. Highly recommend.

4.18/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Poured from the bottle into a Weizen glass. Body is slightly cloudy, straw-yellow in color with a small (just under 1-finger) white head.
S: Sugar-cookie dough malt, hint of spice and a good amount of lemon zest.
T: Light malt foundation - sugar-cookie-dough again comes to mind, along with a touch of wheat twang - then modest coriander spice, which is followed by lemony drying bitterness and a touch of fruit (probably the orange peel I'm getting).Finishes almost like lemonade - the fresh-squeezed, light-on-the-sugar and somewhat diluted kind.
M: Light-to-medium in heft; modest carbonation. Finishes clean and refreshing.
O: This is a good version of the style. Make that an excellent version of the style. It brings to mind those original Wits (anyone remember Wit! or was it W!T from the 90s?) I had oh-so-long ago.
