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.

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.
