4.4/5  rDev +25.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

12 oz bottle (best by 08/22/09) poured into a flute, ZÔN is a hazy straw yellow with a quickly fizzling white head.

Smell is good nice fruity esters indicative of an authentic wit strain, a little sourness from the wheat.

Taste is pretty good, this is very much in the classic style that I think the average US beer drinker would miss, sorry! A bit grainy, sweet, with a hint of orange and coriander but overall showing great restraint with the spices, really my taste in the style for sure. This is not supposed to be a flavor bomb, and it isn't - but it's damn good.

Mouthfeel is smooth, light but not thin, with a nice dry crispness that adds to the refreshingness.

Drinkability is great - I love this style of beer, and judging by the scores, it's obviously very misunderstood. Bummer. I can drink these all summer long (and in fact do, from a very similar home brewed version).
