3.33/5 rDev -2.1%
A: Pours a pale yellowish color with a slight haze to it with less then a fingers worth of head that dissipates to a very thin veil of lace across the top.
S: Aromas of wheat and light orange citrus coming thru with a very light hint of spice.
T: Lemon is the main characteristic here with light wheat and grain. Spice is very very faint, barely noticeable at all. Mild citrus bitterness at the end. If I had a lemon slice I would probably give it a 4.
M: Light carbonation works with the citrus flavors and theres a bit of dryness at the end.
O: Not a bad summer beer. Crisp and refreshing, def a nice summer brew.

Pours yellowish orange with golden highlights. Is very cloudy with a bubbly white head - little retention.
Smells of wheat, bitter lemon, fresh citrus, and warm spice - bitter herb.
Bitter lemon and sweet orange make for a lively mouth feel. Whole grain wheat comes after as it finishes with a bitter herb/spice. Drinking this on a partly sunny, partly cloudy PA day.

Appearance: Light golden color with a slight chill haze. Carbonation seem low in y glass.
Smell: I'm not sure what this smells like, but it is not too pleasant.
Taste: This was a huge surprise. I thought I had picked up 2 six packs of Ground Break Saison, but they changed regional beer over to Partly Sunny and I didn't notice. Quite a huge step down from Ground Break. This tastes like no other beer I ever had. It's not enjoyable which is a disappointment given it's from Ithaca a great regional brewery.
Overall: Sub par, I did not realize this was a wit beer until I logged into BA.

When i opened the bottle it exploded with carobnation. When I poured the beer, it has a hazy golden color body with a nice white head. The smell is of clove and other spices. The taste has a lot of spice going on, but mainly it is clove. This has a great mouth feel and overall a average beer.

As soon as I opened the bottle, there was a ton of carbonation that poured out of the top of the bottle. When I poured it, it poured a hazy yellow with decent, soft white head that has good retention. The nose has notes of clove, yeast, and straw. The taste is clove, lemon, spice, yeast, white grapes, and very faint alcohol phenols. The mouthfeel is light bodied, moderately carbonated (in mouthfeel, not in pour), and very smooth.
Not bad, but hardly complex. This beer is a beginner's Wit. There's nothing offensive, but there are also elements of a decent wit. For those looking to get into the style, it's definitely worth checking out.
