12 oz bottle pours cloudy (of course) pale golden. Weak head. The aroma feature citrus with spices and a subtle bready base. The flavor also has a strong citrus component, but is near moderate in bitterness and lightrly tart too.

Part of the Saranac 12 Beers of Summer Variety Pack - $12.98 at Sherlock's in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clouded, light orange-gold body with a very thin, very short-lived, white head.

Smell: Citrusy, with lemon and oily, pith orange rind. A little coriander sporting a bit of earthiness. Musky, husky grains. Not all that appealing, aromawise.

Taste: Slightly husky, grainy wheat malt, though very little sweetness to be had. Instead, there's a sharp, harsh citrus quality aided by the Citra hops and its imparted bitterness. Minor earthy coriander hint. Drying, citrusy, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Kinda clunky, but with a hybrid witbier with little Belgian character and a dose of Citra, it was expected.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Pours a cloudy peach color with white head and some lacing. A bit of floating yeast bits, looks like an unfiltered, Belgian style ale.

SMELL: Lemony, yeasty, wheat and grapefruit with small tropical notes from the citra.

TASTE: Grapefruit and citrus, some wheat elements and a bit of earthy Belgian yeast character a la Witbier. Orange peel, wheat and a fair amount of bitterness.

Overall, this is a pretty good wit style beer with hop character and some spice.

Though firmly wheat based and fits aptly into the American Pale Wheat Ale style, or hoppy witbier, you may as well call this one a Belgian IPA, or perhaps White IPA. Enough categorizing, its pretty good beer.
