Had this on 2014-03-27 in Columbia, PA

A - Mostly cloudy light yellow with a 1-finger white head that fades quickly and leaves light lace.

S - Grassy, Belgian yeast, lemon, pale malt, light spice/pepper. Stronger than a typical witbier.

T - White bread, lemon candy, pepper, light herbal with a bit of sour and light bitterness in the finish.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Not watery but pretty crisp.

O - A nice compromise between a witbier and a pale ale.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Cloudy light yellow wheat colored body, holding a white foamy head that recedes to a white film. Light watery lacing remains.

Aroma: Faint yeast and wheat, soon laced with floral aromas and citrus peels. Hops come alive in the end with a slightly piny note.

Taste: Belgian at first, doughy yeast comes out alongside a bouquet of fruits and citrus. The finish tastes more American with piny and bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, dry.

Overall: Clean and flavorful, a good beer for any Spring day.
