Summer Wit pours cloudy with a light golden straw color true to style. A thick white head quickly forms and recedes slowly. The nose receives a wide array of aromas including white peppercorn, clove, lemon zest, coriander, orange peel, bubblegum, lemongrass, and a faint citrus hop presence. Bitter zest dominates on the palate from beginning to finish. Mid-palate is greeted with sweet malt and citrus juice notes, which are kept in check by the zesty notes. The wheat sweetness fades in the finish with the entrance of clove and coriander spices and a delicate floral note. The pleasant finish is dry and quite long.

I thought this was a little better than most reviewers give credit for, not world class, but not bad at all as a summer refresher, and certainly within the stylistic realm of a wit. Pours slightly hazy, golden in color perhaps a bit darker than the average wit, and with a decent white head. Smells yeasty, with some orange citrus and slight metallic notes. The taste is nicely balanced- sweet with orange and tangerine notes that are pleasant, and with a nice touch of coriander. Just enough tartness to handle the sweet fruit. The mouthfeel is fairly soft, but there is enough of a snap at the end to still make this refreshing. The tangerine notes here make this beer worth drinking for me, and just a tad different from the usual wit- not always a bad thing.

Picked this up in Springfield, MO

Pours a slightly hazed gold color with 2 fingers of billowy beige head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Grainy & grassy, faint cloves

T: Grassy with lemon, coriander & cloves up front. Slight yeastiness as this warms, faint orange peel notes, even some metallic notes. Finishes with faint banana taffy notes & not much else

MF: Light bodied with somewhat prickly carbonation, thins out even more when warm

My first beer from this brewery, not too impressed. Just a mediocre wit
