I've had maybe 12 wits so far. This is by far the worst I've tasted. Way too spicy and horrible sour aftertaste.

Nice refreshing spicy wit. Great summer beer. Best I've had from this brewery so far.

Growler from CJ's Doghouse in Towamencin, PA. Not the best witbier so far, but has a nice long aromatic spicy finish. Pity there is too much grapefruit hops in the middle. Still one of the best domestic craft examples of the style I've tried. For me, Blue Moon is better, more malty sweetness and better balance.

12/28...on tap in Allentown PA...pours hazy murky yellow brown. Heavy foam layer. Light wheat nose. Orange and rind flavor. A slight sour gives character. Nicely done wit.

12 oz bottle, no date

hazy orange yellow color, basically no head, but bubbles stream up to the surface. aroma of herbal spicy yeast and a bit of wheat. the same flavors in the taste, but mild. thin body, fizzy carbonation.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tangerines, somewhat sweet. Taste is of oranges and tangerines, some sweetness, a bit of wheat, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very good session beer.
