I am still reducing my backlog of bottles, but I have been impressed so far with this brewery's beers. My thanks to the Friendly Greek Bottle Shop for making them available to us.
From the bottle: "Stop by & visit us in Spartanburg[,]SC"; "Our spin on a Belgian-style white ale is a beer drinker's dream. Brewed with a pinch of coriander and a twist of orange peel, this is the perfect anytime ale. When served with a slice of citrus, it delivers a whirlwind of flavor and a crisp finish."
I wanted to ensure that this Wit was Wit-like and so I really agitated it in the bottle before beginning the pour. I also used a heavy hand, which also helped to stir things up and create a pseudo-cascade. This settled into two foamy fingers of eggshell-white head with moderate retention. Color was a cloudy golden-yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose was muted for the style and seemed to have a perfume-like sweetness to go with the distinctive wheat tang . Hmm. Mouthfeel was on the thin side and the taste was rather muted, only mildly spicy, with the wheat tang providing most of what there was in terms of flavor. Finish was semi-dry with a slight tartness that suggested that it might benefit from "a slice of citrus", probably in the form of an orange. Color me unimpressed.

Picked up a six at Butler's for 6.99. I like the style so how can I pass that up, had to give it a try. I like the spice both in the smell and the taste which made it interesting. This is a pretty good beer and one that I enjoyed. Would by again at that cost and value but would not spend a lot otherwise to have it again.
