on tap at the brewery in Santa Rosa. Yellow color, hazy. Aromas of bananas and spicy yeast. Flavor is much the same. This feels like a traditional Belgian wit but it also had a certain something that set it slightly apart. This was pretty good and I'm not even a fan of witbiers.

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.
