A: pours a light straw color with a nice fluffy bright white head. The yeast strands get caught at the bottom and continue to pump carbonation into this baby keeping the head at a steady half inch. Also, the label and logo are adorable.
S: Coriander and bitter orange peel.
T: Wow, the taste is much more creamy and well rounded than i anticipated from the smell. Lots of puckering lemon and orange citrus flavor followed by some spiciness, mostly ginger.
M: Tons of carbonation and sour citrus but also a little creamy and super refreshing. Perhaps just a touch too much carbonation IMO.
D: Could certainly knock back a few of these on a nice warm sunny day, especially along with some spicy food.

a pretty famous beer here, it has eluded me somehow until now. picked this up under 6 bucks over at colorado liquor mart, who is still chugging along with some hidden gems in the back there. a nice take on a wit, different than almost all of them because of (what i perceive anyway) this fresh ginger in here. a blonde beer with a golden flare, clear for the style, and while there are a ton of bubbles in it, no head really ever builds up. the nose is almost like ginger ale, its so potent to me, i have to believe there is real ginger in it. belgian type yeast is also fruity, while some malt other than wheat i think makes an appearance, giving some light caramel flavors as a base. ginger and cracked pepper in the finish, this could pass as a saison on the yeast character alone, less belgian than saison in that regard. super refreshing, and even though it looks flat, there are a lot of bubbles here in solution. my first beer from this operation is a winner, i like this a lot, different from the masses but still comfortably within what the style asks for. perfect hot weather refresher. super dig it.
