Virginia

3.9/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Sampled on tap at Father's Office in Santa Monica. Served in a pint glass, this one was cloudy & a bright golden yellow with no head to speak of, but loads of streaming carbonation. Tame aroma of herbal spices with mild citrus. Pleasant citrusy flavor throughout this one with some underlying wheat & lemon peel. Light-bodied and quite active & exciting in the mouth. Finishes with an understated zing of spicy yeast and a hit of lemon tart. Easy drinking, well-crafted, refreshing brew.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Sampled at the brewery. pours cloudy yellow with a nice looking creamy white head. Banana, lemon, grass, and slightly spicy yeast aroma. pretty standard witbier smell. Flavor is honey, coriander, hay, yeast, banana, pear, a bit of wheat on the finish. Light bodied with medium plus carbonation, but soft and makes this nice and smooth. Overall a worthwhile witbier.
