look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: It is a nice light amber color withe a nice clearity

S: Has a floral smell to it with a little bit of fruitiness

M: it has a nice mouth feel, a little rough on the tongue, but it is a pleasant feel

T: it has a very mild and bland flavor that falls flat. However, when you add the orange that the beer comes with it changes. The orange helps bring the mild flavors into forward.

O: This is a nice wheat beer, I will enjoy having it again when I go back

On tap at the Barley Creek Brew Pub.

Poured a medium to deep orangish color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas of fruitiness (apples and pears), citrus and spicey. Tastes of citrus, candi sugar, light spices and fruity.

The beer pours a hazy dark gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a mild wheat malt scent along with lots of coriander and clove aromas. This is a much maltier version of a witbier style. The taste is decent as well. It has a very malty flavor that boasts of pale and wheat malts. It's loaded up with spices as well as yeast esters. Most wits are light and pale gold colored. This one is dark gold and malty with an enormous amount of spice character. The taste is actually quite good, although it's not true to style. The mouthfeel is average. It is a low/medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is an interesting beer. I like it, but it's a hefe/wit hybrid. It's heavier than a wit, yet spiced like one. It also has the hefe clove character.

Had on tap at Barley Creek.

A: A cloudy golden yellow color. Had a really thick head that dissipates quickly.

S: Very aromatic, clove, coriander with banana ester.

T: Very spicy flavor, the cloves really stand-out on the front end, with a good smooth flavor of banana and wheat on the back-end.

M: Light bodied beer, not much carbonation. Leaves a clean taste.

D: If you like wheat style beers, it is a decent summer beer. It is my favorite one to drink at Barley Creek.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a white head. Aroma of melon rind and malt. Not very aromatic actually. Flavor of odd malt--very cereal like (rice Chex is my closest guess). Sweet and odd, but still somewhat drinkable. Definitely nothing like a classic witbier though...
