Pours a beautiful hazy orange murky golden tone.One major distinction I see immediately from other normal witbier is that it has an immensely rich foamy head that lingers for quite a while.
Aromatics are very woody upfront, a huge note of sour apple cider.Coriander, cayenne, cilantro,banana, sweet yet spicy.Very complex, layers continue to reveal yeasty must, earthy,apples continue to come more upfront at times, and play a background role as well.
Flavor is standout delicious.Rich, sweet, yet peppery, cider spiced apples, cayenne, herbal notes from the yeast and the spices added. Tart, light on the finish. Digging deeper reveals drying cider, warmness and great carbonation to boot.
This beer tastes like its no stronger than 5.5%, a true feat in my book.I have seen good reviews and bad of this brew and I have to say I cannot fault it.
It's innovative, experimental, and a redefinition of a spiced Wit, yet remains somewhat familiar with it's cider qualities and is a great drink.

This pours with a radiant wheat yellow color and a thick foamy head.
The nose is a bit wheat, a little bit of Apple cider, with a spicy tone of chili powder and paprika.
The flavor is strong on the front palate with Apple sweetness. The middle shows substantial wheat grain and I got caramel malts. The spicy cayenne is more a spicy nutmeg or cinnamon and it reminds of some Christmas beers. The great thing is that the complexities of this beer seem to change with each sip.
The feel is light and crisp and disguises the higher ABV.
I enjoyed this beer immensely, it's complex, it's different and it kept me guessing.
Serving type: on-tap
