look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed at the Wilimington, DE location brewpub.

A: single finger head on a cloudy golden body. no bubbles.

S: citrus, clove, breads and biscuit.

T: wheat, grains, breads and biscuit with both fruity notes and a peppery zest finish.

M: lighter side of medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: a standard wit which is nicely flavorful but not different or memorable from what you think of as the base style.

On tap at the Media location.

Decent, unexceptional witbier that thankfully doesn’t go to over the top with the spices. The look is right on: cloudy, extremely pale yellow verging on white; nice sized white head that settles down slowly and leaves good lacing.

Nose is typical of the style, with distinct wheat aromas; cloves, and citrus. More pronounced lemony aspect than usual. The flavor follows suit; there’s a decent hit of lemony tartness that’s more assertive than expected; other citrus notes, particularly orange peel, cloves, and a very grainy wheat taste that’s actually vaguely unpleasant. Something seems just a tad “off;” I’d almost think it was a dirty tap line if this place didn’t seem so fastidious in general. It’s hard to be more specific than that; and it didn’t ruin the beer, but maybe knocked down the overall flavor score a bit.

Medium-light bodied, crisp and clean carbonation, refreshing and dry as per the style. Everyone has a wit on for summer and these guys did it as well as anybody, I suppose. It’s hard to make this style stand out from its peers because everyone stays pretty traditional. I’ll remember this one for its good points – assertive lemony flavor – and its not-so-good – a slightly dirty tasting wheat note.
