Ithaca Partly Sunny
12 oz brown bottle
Best before October notched on the side label
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

Pours a mustard yellow with a big fluffy white head. Bleach white sticky head. Mini carbonation bubbles race to the top of the glass.

Whiffs of spices, citrus and Belgian yeast.

A highly carbonated interpretation of a witbier, that is missing something. Orange juice sweetness with some black pepper spice. Funky yeast and more citrus flavors, but with an overly bitter finish.

A nice try, but such a difficult beer for some craft breweries to pull off with success.

3.1/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Medium light yellow. Cloudy, nearly opaque. Short creamy white head with some persistence.

Smell - Sweet and grainy. Banana and a little spice and lemon.

Taste - Sweet grain. Artificial banana with a lemony finish. Some spice, especially in the aftertaste - I'll go with cloves. Quite watery.

Mouthfeel - Light.

Overall - Flavor didn't live up to the aroma's promise.
