This one may be a bit old. Bought & tasted 4/16 but from the Brau Bros web site, this is a summer beer. Pour is a typical Belgian cloudy amber with low carbonation and minimal head. Taste is spice and malt, but not overdone. Smell matches, but it's rather weak. Overall, its true to style and would be good selection on a hot summer afternoon.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

APPEARANCE: pours a hazy, golden color with less than one-finger white head that quickly dissipated until just a ring of small bubbles remained around the rim of glass, very lightly carbonated, there is some lacing on the glass.

SMELL: banana and bread.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, banana and bread.

PALATE: medium body but this beer was nearly flat.

OVERALL: this was a decent beer except that it was almost completely flat, there was no date on the bottle, I may have to try this one again but how can I tell if it's fresh or not, on second thought, I'll just reach for something else as there are numerous options available in this style.

Even though I am a big fan of a couple of other Brau Brothers brews, I find this offering to be very mediocre. Will not buy again.

Sampled last night on 9/21/15. Comes in a 12-ounce bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a "CHEERS-BOSTON" handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a deep golden-yellow in color with a thinner white cap. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped that is thick and sticks to the glass. Lots going on with the aroma as there is some light wheat, spice, and citrus zest. Even more going on with the taste as there is some coriander and floral hops that comes on near the finish. Slightly bitter crisp finish also. Lighter-side of medium-bodied with good carbonation. Overall, it was OK.

Nice color, with a light head/ lo-carbo, easy to drink fast. The smell is interesting because its a mixture richness and spice. The taste is good, would be better on a bitter cold day maybe with a slice of orange or lemon on top. Taste is buttery/creamy with a hint of spice. Overall, well crafted beer, just not my favorite style.

From our brew brothers in Marshall, only next door to where I'm living, I get to try a Crystal Wit "White Cap" Witbier today.

Appearance (3.75) : Stable 2 finger head, leaves thick lacing on the glass. The body is a honey golden color, containing only the slightest of haze which is disappointing, but hey it quacks like a wit and it talks like a wit, so...

Aroma (4) : Now this is interesting. Roasted honey barley in every sense of the word, honey bourbon, oak, cherry woods, just a fresh, woody, roasted smell.

Flavor (3) : Oak, toasted malts, a kick of honey, some spice, a little vinegar at the end. Some faint orange peel and coriander mixture begins to surface the more I drink it. The beer overall mostly has woody and honey tones. Adhesive also and some medicinal flavors that kick this beer down a notch or three.

Mouthfeel (3.75) : Very juicy, creamy, a little spritz of carbonation underneath. Ends woody and semi-dry.

Overall : Some glaring issues with this beer. There are much better Wits out there.
