I had this at Firewaters in Concorde PA. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thick white heading and continues to stay that way until the bitter end.
Smell is malt. Wheaty malts and a nice hint of lemony zest takes over with some earthiness.
Taste is the same nice malt taste with a nice hint's of lemon and apricot and other lighter fruits. The zestiness is then taken over by the yeasts which adds a nice spice to this beer.Slight tasting of hops add to the spiciness. This is a well suited beverage.
Mouth is kind of gritty in a way but with full carbonation and a nice light bodied feel this is easily a heavy summer favorite.
Drink is excellent I couldn't see why anyone wouldn't love to have a few of these. Very sessionable and light for those hot days. I am not really a big Witbier fan but this one is easily my favorite so far.
Serving type: on-tap

A - poured a very pale straw, very light color. Sight haze. Head was massive frothy large bubbled 2 fingers, dissipated to a nice soapy froth, although was always lively did not leave much lacing.
S - pungent banana and fruity yeast Esthers dominate the nose. Slight citrus and herbal notes follow, coriander, anise, and clove... Tons of fresh breadyness round out the nose, smells fresh and inviting.
T - I feel the taste follows the nose exactly, no surprises here... Tons of fruityness from the yeast with lots of banana, herbal notes prevalent with a good amount of citrusy coriander, still getting a slight licorice-esque anise and some clove. This taste is supported by a great bready biscuity wheat malt that is crisp and refreshing. Finishes with a clean citrusy bitter.
M - great mouthfeel, very refreshing. Crisp and dry with a good amount of body to the mouthfeel from the wheat.
O - one of the beers that got me into craft back in the day, over the years this hasn't changed and is still just as good today. Overall all just a perfect example of the style to me. Looks great, smells and tastes phenomenal and is really crisp and thirst quenching.
