3.6/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy light pale yellow in color (almost like a Berliner Weissbier) and has some fine particles floating in suspension near the bottom and no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light aromas of peppery spices in the nose along with some hints of lemon citrus.
T: Like the smell, the taste has initial flavors of lemon citrus and is followed by hints of peppery spices that linger into the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but doesn't seem to fit into any particular style-it is more like a witbier ans less like a Belgian IPA.

Best by 10/20/14:

Pours clouded lemon-drop yellow with a fluffy white head. Trailing lacing sticks.

The smell is of wheat tang, orange peel, lemon, coriander and leafy notes.

The taste of sweettart mixes with spice and citric bitterness in the refreshing finish.

Creamy smooth, this is an enjoyable unique brew. Witbier meets American IPA, and it works!

Clear golden appearance in a pint glass, minimal head as served at a restaurant.
Taste is smooth and light. Belgian yeast prevalent but not overwhelming. Hops also on the light side. Smooth, refreshing, enjoyable. A decent offering, not great. A good fun session beer just in time for summer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date. Being a "Wit" in a way the yeast was decanted in the glass.

LOOK: Turbid, yellow straw, nice head

SMELL: Fresh herbs, fruity, citric, yeast, bready, spice, hoppy

TASTE: Smooth, bitty, bitter, spicy, dry, yeast, fruity, citrus pith, bready, nutty, medicinal herbs, chalky finish

I love the whole concept of the style, sort of a mish-mash of styles but it works and works here as well. Worth a getting a sixer of it IMO.
