Aroma is pine, earth, hops.
Pale yellow appearance. Good carbonation.
Taste Harsher taste than sierra nevada nooner. Pine, sap. Mineral.

Just OK.

For having seven variations of hops. Taste more like a spiced Belgian than it does an IPA.

Surprisingly good. Was a little afraid when I saw the cloudiness when poured but was fine example of a Belgian dry hop witbier.

Very hazy orange color with a white soapy head that was somewhat creamy in thickness.

Kind of a vegetable smell with some hop notes.

Taste was an unusual bitter hop flavor with a note of sourness on the finish.

The mouth feel borders on the medium with a wet finish.

This is an unusual beer that states it is brewed with seven varieties of experimental dwarf hops. I think this adds to the unusual taste as the normal pine and floral hops are not to be found here. I find this to be an unusual and quite unique beer that stands alone.

This is one surprisingly solid brew. And not because Sierra Nevada doesn't do great things, but rather I didn't expect this much hopping in wit style beer to be such a great combo! This beer pours a clear golden/orange *unless you swirl the bottom yeast loose...with a dense 1.5 finger white head on a controlled pour. The smell of the belgian yeast and hops comes through at the first whiff. The first part of the taste is a black pepper hop bit that slides into the spicy sticky belgian yeast goodness that I love! The body of this beer is very good and and I highly recommend. A wit with a kick!
