From tap into a pint-sized mason jar. Hazy, golden with some light amber hues. Less than 1/2 finger of a full head; little lacing.

The aroma is wheat-forward with lemon/citrus tones. There is a sweetness as well, like roasted fruit or a cobbler fresh from the oven.

The taste follows the smell accordingly. A nice, full-bodied wheat flavor with sweet floral and citrus notes. Has more flavor than many comparable wheat/wit beers. The hops are surprising pronounced but by no means strong or overwhelming.

Mouthfeel is substantial. Very different than the light crispness of most witbiers. Much more like an amber or dark, deeper unfiltered ale.

I like this beer. I much prefer this as a summer beer than the lighter, crisper stuff with less body. A beer-drinker's summer brew? Something like that. Recommended.

Serving type: on-tap
