3.58/5 rDev +0.3%
11.2 oz can was poured into a tulip glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy golden yellow with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Light aromas of bready wheat, vanilla, yeasty, and green apple.
Taste: Same as above. Nothing spectacular and pretty simple.
Mouthfeel: Tart wheat, chewy, light bodied, refreshing, and medium carbonation.
Overall: A nice witbier. Not fantastic, but nice. Out of a can too.

4.04/5 rDev +13.2%
Appearance: Pours with a half a finger of head. Straw yellow with some light accents of orange. Sticky random lacing left behind. Active carbonation is present but is on the lighter side for the style.
Smell: Lemon and prairie grass greet the drinker. Creamy malt mixes well with light accents of pepper and salt. Grainy undertone rounds out the aroma. Simple but distinguished tones are very pleasant.
Taste: Creamy oats and wheat with a slight touch of salt provides an easy going front. A squeeze of lemon and lime brighten up the body. Some very light spice and pepper sits on the palate on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is extremely low which contributes to the creaminess. Crushable not doubt (because this is certainly the most important aspect of any beer)
Overall: Very surprised here. Listed as a Wit but has the saltiness and light funk of a Gose. Either way I would not hesitate to reach for one of these.

Sticky white lacing that persists. Very pale yellowish beige with a cloudiness and some sediment. A flashlight revealed more sediment in bottom of can trough so I poured some beer back into can and vigorously swirled.
Aroma of bread and oranges with a predominant yeast overtone. Actually smells like orange flavored dough rising.
Taste is fresh baked bread with malty sweet orange zest. The finish has a slight metallic twang, presumably from the can. Perhaps the most yeasty, bready witbier to date. The yeast aroma persists throughout the session while the metallic note fades into non-existence. There is a pleasant, lingering orange oil finish after several minutes.
For yeast lovers this is a superb witbier that achieves near perfection, at least for my palate.
