12 oz. bottle, best April 2015, into a weizen glass. Bought as a sixer from a Bloomington grocery store during a family trip.

A- 1-finger, fizzy white head. Clean, straw body with moderate-heavy carbonation. Head settles out to a thin foam. Decent stick left on the glass.

S- Yeasty. Orange juice/zest, coriander, black pepper. A little gum. Quite aromatic, really.

T- A good combination. Wheaty backbone with orange, coriander, and peppery notes. A combination of sweet malt, orange, and black pepper in the finish means it ends somewhere between sweet and dry.

M- Medium-light body. Moderate-heavy carbonation. Delicate, somewhat creamy. Black pepper qualities make for a little bite.

O- a good representation of the style. Doesn't try to get to funky, which means it doesn't stand out, but it doesn't get off putting either. Refreshing and lower on the ABV scale, makes for a great warm weather session beer.

Not much to report here, very base model for a Wit. Nothing jumps at you. If it's hot out and you need to have more then a few, I can see doing a session of these, otherwise slightly below average.

Refreshing, with a phenomenal citrus after taste. There's a slight coconut undertone that you might miss unless you really look for it. This is the epitome of a great summer beer.
