3.56/5 rDev -1.4%
A: The beer is quite hazy light yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with an eighth of a finger high bright white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of bananas are present in the nose along with notes of wheat and hints of orange peels and lemon citrus.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of bananas and has notes of wheat plus slight bits of sweetness. Only faint bits of spices are perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: To me, this beer seems to me more like it's a hefeweizen compared to a witbier. I wouldn't consider this to be refreshing, but it's quite easy to drink.

A - Very pale and cloudy
S - Fruity smell
T - Tastes fruity, just like the smell
M - In the mouth has a milky texture, not very сarbonated.
O - I guess Hefeweizens are not my favorite style of beer, I prefer blacks stronger ones, but this one was ok.

Soft hazy yellow color with a rigorous visible carbonation. Head, meager but retained at a short height.
Musty and wheaty with a tang and light citrus. A little stanky with age, as the malt composition is thinner and falling apart.
Harshly wheaty with a papery tang. Lemon is very light and probably has been reduced. Light caramel syrup taints the crispness. Not much left.
Crackling medium carbonation. Medium-light body with no real fascination.
Boo-hoo to this poor showing. Not after two delicious wittes already tonight.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin rings and dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, yeast, and some earthy, spice-like aromas. Taste is much the same with a slightly tart flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp but thin bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is definitely drinkable with a slightly sour aspect that is somewhat refreshing, intended or not.

Never saw this beer at the store until a stranger suggested it and at $2 a bottle I figured what the hell. Pours a hazy somewhat clear straw color. Small white head fizzes out leaving no trace of it ever being there. Smells and tastes of wheat (go figure) with some lemon, grapefruit and orange suppplying a helping hand. The fruits give this a touch of sourness that isn't off putting but doesn't quite seem like it belongs either. Mouthfeel is kinda thin and almost flat, finishes clean with no detectable hop presence. Not the best wheat beer in the world and far from the worse. Easy to drink and non offensive. I would say it was worth the $2.

Into a weizen glass. Two fingers of head, nice retention. Lots of bubbles in the hazy, dark straw colored body.
Great smell of lemon, orange zest, banana and grapefruit.
Nice fizzy texture, a dry and mild bitter taste. Pleasant and simple.
Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.
An excellent wit.

500 mL Eastern European style bottle,
A: Pours a super hazy goldenrod with a nice medium white head. Very light lace. Unfiltered look for sure.
S: Real nice nose of wheat and orange. Very inviting, has a bit of a pasta flair.
T: Orange and some sweet lemon, great citrus play in the mid-palate. Nice tart finish, some minor acid in the finish. Wheat flavour is an undercurrent throughout.
M: Light-bodied, crisp carbonation. Acidic in the finish, with a nice long finish for the style.
O: This is a pretty darn good witbier. I wasn't expecting that much, but this is a fun beer to drink. An easy pickup again.

Pours from the 16.9 oz. bottle a very cloudy, opaque yellowish color with a bright white, rocky 2 finger + head that settles down by half. It's totally impossible to detect any carbonation in the thick cloudiness. Aroma is a beautiful banana scent with perhaps a hint of lemon/orange peel. 1st sip brings a nice soft flavor of banana, citrus, doughy yeast, a hint of peppery spice. The mouthfeel is very lively and prickly from all that carbonation that was hidden in the haze. The flavors are kind of subdued, if they were a tad more bold and assertive this would be an excellent beer. Overall, it's still very good, a nice surprising pickup.
