look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
750 ml bottle, batch # 20
Appearance: Cloudy yellow with fluffy, uneven, white head. The head thins down a lot but still maintains a nice covering over the top of the beer.
Smell: Bubble gum, banana, apple, sweet malty aroma. Light, sweet, non-specific floral aroma.
Taste: Spicy pepper, pear, gren apple, bready, chewy. Sweet with a hint of lemony citrus. Very citrusy up front with a mostly malty/wheaty middle. Watery clean ending with a lingering maltiness. Very light woody flavor like sawdust or unfinished oak.
Mouthfeel: Well carbonated and lively. It dances on the palate and releases the flavor evenly and cleanly. It also has a nice chewy feel from the malts. Excellent feel to this light to medium bodied beauty.
Drinkability: Very drinkable and clean. Complex and tasty and with a well balanced spiciness and maltiness. I will gladly drink this one again. Well done.

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.
