Appearance: Arrives hazy and honey colored with a modest head; a few strands of lacing hang around as the head fades

Smell: Lemons, coriander, cloves and wheat; hints of orange and banana

Taste: Lemony and tangy wheat tones, up front, with a hint of banana developing; through the middle, the coriander and clove tones emerge along with white pepper; all the flavors are well-balanced through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice Wit that has some elements of a hefe, as well

First had: on tap at the brewery

Straw-yellow pour, slightly hazy, with a fairly puffy cap of white head that retained and laced well. Typical wheat profile in the nose, notes of citrus and peppery spice. Taste is pretty clean, bready, slightly yeasty, and again, notes of citrus zest and peppery clovey spice. Pretty decent for a style I'm not a huge fan of, and much more smooth and tolerable than many. Light body, crisp and easily drinkable.

Golden straw color with a crescent moon of solidifying head. Quite literally how it formed on the surface. 3.5

Wheaty clean with peppery spice, coriander, and light lemon. 4.0

Lemony wheat and white pepper with coriander, a hint of clove, sourdough, saison yeast, and blanched peanuts. Very nice flavor, overall. Mostly dry and superbly crisp in the finish. 4.5

Needs a carb boost. Body is like skim milk. High drinkability. 3.5

A hometown treat in the summertime. A quality witbier. Enjoy! 4.0

I bought this growler from the public market in the strip district .
I enjoy the hazy yellow color of this witt and the spicy subtle smell that wafts into my nose from the plastic hotel cup that I am drinking from. Then the taste which is heavy in spice and wheat dankness. I enjoy the lightness ofthemouth feel and the subtle complex flavors that start semi sweet and end with a tacky butter mouth feel. Overall I was impressed with this beer, my first east end experience.

A- A very pale and very hazy yellow colored beer makes for a very white looking ale. This beer holds true to its name. The head rises up to about one finger and fades leaving thick lacing. The foam sustains as a thin film.

S- Grassy, estery and spicy. Lots of lemon, some banana, some citrus and grassy hops.

T- Tons of lemon. The banana fades behind some lemon, pine, spice and citrus. The finish is a little bit bitter for a wit but that just provides a very crisp finish.

M- Light body with fluffy soft carbonation. This is a pretty dry beer that finishes dry leaving only some lemon flavors.

D- A nice light summer brew. Between three of us we had no problem finishing this growler.

Picked up a growler on a recent trip to Pittsburgh, had a special tour and got to hang out with Scott...had set it up to hang out at the brewery with my buddy who was getting married as a surprise...to him and for all the guys in the wedding party...awesome time. I have to give great props to Scott for having us in and answering all of our questions...and letting us try so many of his great beers!!

A- Light hazy yellow, bright sunny, light wheat, frothy white head, that lingers for a bit, no lacing...unfiltered.

S- Nice citrus, lemon, orange, light spice.

T- Very clean and refreshing, a great wit style beer...some coriander, orange peel, lemon zest...banana, very nice.

M- Light and carbonated, clean and balanced...

D- A very drinkable beer, light, low ABV, great beer to drink.

A hazy yellow body with a little bit of a white head, some retention.

A light wheat odor. Lemon, citrus, a good dose of coriander.

A very nice witbier, one of my favorites for sure. The main flavors are coriander and lemon, but there is still a nice wheat twang underneath. The nice twang and the refreshing combination of the other flavors is what makes this wit great to me. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and moderately carbonated.

Very refreshing beer. Easy to drink, low ABV. Something I can drink a lot of.

I'm a huge fan of all the wheat beers that come out of East End, and this one is no exception.

A. Served into a 12 oz glass at the brewery. Appeared hazy yellow with quite a bit of head. Some nice lacing work as well.

S. Very sweet and wheaty. I could pick up some notes of citrus from the beginning.
Hops are evident.

T. Spiced and citric, a nice hop profile with some pineapple touches.

M. Smooth and crisp. Totally refreshing.

D. Very good. Glad its a year round selection.
