A - not as big of a head as a normal wheat. sarts 1 1/2 goes down to less than a half finger pretty fast.

S - hint of banana, yeast. sweetness. not hops whatsoever

T - Clean. Crisp. Not a lot of strong flavors. a hint of banana. Some dry biscuit.

M - silky and moderately carbed. tiny bubbles dance on the tongue. refreshing and pleasant.

O - Needs a bit more flavor. Just something to make it stand out from the style. good for the style though.

Pours a soft, white head. Nice, yeasty, bready aroma with a nice, big orange backing throughout. Highly turbid, yellow-straw colored. Starts with BRIGHT orange, then the chamomile actually comes through very nicely as the biscuity malt begins to swell in for the finish. The finish is a touch of hops, chamomile (I LOVE chamomile!), and biscuity malt.

Yeah, this is fantastic. I really, really love the addition of chamomile (on of my favorite herbal teas). If you're not big on chamomile, I could see you disliking this one, as it has a fairly prominent role in the middle of the flavor profile. This is a nice, spicy, malty witbier. I can see why this one gets so much play throughout Indiana.

This was a nice effort from the boys in B-Town. The beer appeared a cloudy golden color that produced a thin white head, which was not well retained. The beer gave off a pleasant aroma of citrus and bread. The aroma was good, but could have been a bit more robust. The beer had a nice taste to it, a light sweetness from the malt and a hint of banana, no hops to mention. The beer had a light feel to it, could have used a bit more carbonation, but the beer was very easy to drink. Overall, a good summer beer, but I would probably pick another first.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - poured a cloudy golden color with little head.

S - little bit of citrus and banana, a bit of breadiness and grassy.

T - sweet and tart at the same time with more banana than the nose indicated, wheat and and malty.

M - light and refreshing with average carbonation, reasonably clean finish with no detectable aftertaste.

O - A decent wheat beer, not one I would probably seek out again but just a bit better than an average beer. Could see this being a decent ly refreshing beer on a warm summer evening.
