Delightful! Like Hoegarden, but better. The most lemony beer I have ever had, framed well, with yeasty notes, and a crisp refreshing finish. Looks great too.

A bit disappointing. Too heavy on the sweet orange. Hides the yeast notes. While it is a Witt from Belgium there are better examples.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a Shocktop Wittbier glass.

The color is a clear golden/yellow with a finger of foamy white head and some very thin lacing.

The smell is mixed with a bit of funk and slight citrus aroma.

The taste is sweet with a lemon citrus flavor that has a good bready edge to it. There is a earthy flavor that holds back the citrus flavor from really getting a hold and stealing the show. The flavor seems force in on itself and before it really a chance to shine it hits a bitterness at the end and I'd gone.

The feel of this beer is light with a nice drinkable feel that goes down easy and leaves no aftertaste.

Pours a light straw with a thin white head. Good retention, and nice lace. Aroma is of fruity spices, and candy. Body is light and creamy. Taste is of orange, and sweet tart fruit. Very easy to drink.

Pours a light yellow golden with almost no head. Faint taste of orange peel. Light and smooth, but too light. Besides the orange peel, taste is almost an afterthought. A nice summer drink...

I liked this beer from the very first sip. There's is a noticable level of citrus that iwill subdue your taste buds with pleasure. That is if you like citrus. This is a great beer to charish after a long hot day. It has a cool and crisp finish that will make you say ahh, relaxation time.
