Poured into a Sam Smith pint glass.
A: Pours an extremely cloudy yellow color, with some suspended yeast appearing in the body. Not much of the white-colored head appears.
S: Phenols, coriander, citrus peel, wheat, and some yeast funk.
T: The flavor is a little hard to describe. There's some opening tartness, hints of orange peel and black pepper on the middle, and an incredibly crisp, slightly bitter finish. Everything here is a little subdued and light, but the flavors work well anyways.
M: Doesn't have the strong carbonation typical of wits, but sweet zombie Jesus, is it refreshing. Also has a lighter body and a hint of wateriness on the back end.
O: Wow, this goes down easy. In fact, it goes down too easy...I could seriously down an entire 4-pack of this in one sitting. Not the most in your face beer on the market, but an awesome summertime drink.
Serving type: bottle

A: Typical hazy pale yellow color. Nothing notable about 1 finger semi-soapy head. Really poor retention and no signs of lacing, granted it was serve in a pint glass.
S: Banana, clove, graham cracker malts, coriander perfumes, but fruit esters seemed to dominate.
M: Lighter bodied and creamier feel, but still refreshing with a moderately high carbonation level. Dry, crisp, and tart finish is superb.
T: Considerably more complex than the aroma suggests. Banana and cloves, floral hops, scant lemongrass tartness, white pepper and coriander spicing, orange pith gives it a dry and tart character on the finish. Slight metallic, but a definite medicinal character builds as well.
Serving type: on-tap
