Served in a shaker at The Saucer on 4/7/13. Pours an almost flat golden-yellow favoring the flesh of a mango. There was a little haze to it, but it seemed more like something dirty floating in it than really a wit or hefe type unfiltered haze. There was no head to this beer. I watched the pour and it was done by one of the bartenders that knows how to pour a beer. He didn't not pour off the head. He poured it at about 75 degrees and it just formed nothing. The smell was just flat as well. There was tons of bubbles in the glass, so I didn't think it was a carbonation thing. There was maybe a whisper of fruit syrup and some maybe banana on top of some cheap white bread. The taste was just a bunch of nothing overall. I feared a flat beer given the head and the nose situation, but it was really quite fizzy; too fizzy really. There was something that maybe wanted to be pomegranate, but only came off as flavoring syrup. There was no wheat flavor at all and there was this harsh hops flavor to it as well; no flavoring hops, just a flat bitterness. Overall, this beer was just off. Sytlistically it just doesn't work right for either a wit or a true wheat beer. It really was like drinking a budweiser with some fruit flavor to it. I may give it another shot just to be sure, but I just didn't like it.
Serving type: on-tap
