Enjoyed on New Years Eve while watching Clint Eastwood movie. The beer was not too heavy but still tasted like a beer. Don't think I have had too many white beers but enjoyed it nonetheless. Seems like a beer you could have more than one and not be full.
1/17/2013: A few weeks later and trying it again. Still enjoying it!! No Clint Eastwood though. This time I bought a six pack.

A - murky, dark orange with a big, thick, dense, foamy, pure white head that has decent retention
S - some peppery spice, coriander, some Belgian yeast funk
T - Belgian yeast, typical Belgian esters, some faint spice
M - medium bodied, crisp, well carbonated
This is not what I expected as a Witbier, but it's not a bad beer. I will judge this beer to style so it will receive a lower rating than if I reviewed it on its flavor and overall merits as a beer. As a witbier, it's lacking in traditional flavor. The spice is present but that is all I could find to resemble a true Witbier. The flavor more resembles a BPA due to the big esters and fuller than expected body. Overall, this is a decent beer, but a lackluster Witbier. It's probably worth a try for BPA fans looking for something local in VA or north NC.

Wow, this is a keeper, stocker upper, keep arounder, gotta have. The mouthfeel on this one is awesome. What a treat. A solid Witbier from Legend. Their beers share a kinship and are rich and full of flavor. However I have no other Witbier to compare it to. I have no problem clearing the shelf and sharing this one with my fellow beer lovers.
Way to go Legend!

A: Hazy golden color. Very modest carbonation visible in the beer, with very little head on top. The few bubbles of head are white, and leave no lacing.
S: Some clove-like scents come through, along with some very very faint flower scent. Pretty unimpressive.
T: Some clove in the taste as well, along with a cardboard-like taste, very faint but present grain character. Some banana in the aftertaste.
M: The mouthfeel is rather smooth and creamy, but could use a lot more carbonation.
O: Overall I wasn't impressed with the beer at all. It's below average for a wit, and seemed very one dimensional. It's very likely that I'm drinking this beer a bit to late in the season. I wouldn't buy it again, but I will have to pick it up and try it again next year to compare. Still, I was disheartened by the severe lack of carbonation. I would get one bubble here, another there...
