Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a copper-gold coloring with a filmy white coating. Aromas of toasted wheat, citrus sweet, and a touch of roasted herbs. Flavors are light and smooth, with a roasty and nutty backbone supporting some light spicing and lemony citrus blendings. Aftertaste is fruity sweet, with a grainy touch. The finish is a bit filmy and slightly lingering. Not bad.

Golden yellow in color with a slight chill haze. Poured with a short white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap that left sticky lacings on the glass. Lemon, earthy, grassy, bready aromas. Crisp, tangy feel with refreshing lively carbonation and a crisp finish. Tangy, spicy hop flavors with earthy grass and bready malt beneath from beginning to end. Finishes with a light tangy, herbal hop bitterness. Very crisp and refreshing.

A- Partly cloudy light orange beer poured into a pint glass. Foamy white head forms to a nice three finger size but it only lasts for a minute or so. Tiny bubbly ring around the edges with a few clouds in the middle. Head disappears completely leaving no lace and a strange looking beverage.
S- Wheat/grain bomb, too much so it seems to dominate every whiff I get. I also get some lemon/citrus zest and just tiny yeast spice behind that.
T- Again, each sip brings with it a hefty dose of wheat bread crust. The citrus peel, floral, spicy, clove and yeast comes through more than the aroma. I get some sort of cardboard/corn hint as well, hard to describe (just super wheaty?).
MF- Light body with a somewhat watery feel. The carbonation is lower than I expected and seems off for the style. Slight bitterness.
Doesn't really do it for me in any way. The spices don't bring much flavor. The Witbier aspect of this is just not there. I just get a big flavor of wheat crust and some corn/cardboard thing going on when it comes down to it.
