Purchased a six pack of 12 oz. bottles at Whole Foods and drank them over several days/nights out of a Spiegelau stemmed Pilsner glass. This was my first experience with anything from this brewery and, given the high ratings their beers tend to get and my love for Witbiers, I was a bit disappointed. On the darker side, with not much head and little smell. Not as much flavor, in my opinion, as my favorites in the category and I agree with one of the previous reviewers who found the mouthfeel on the harsher side. Would not purchase again to drink at home, but wouldn't mind one from time to time in a bar or restaurant. Prefer Allagash White, St. Bernardus Witbier, or Dogfish Head Namaste.

I had this on tap at...la guardia. Yup. Color was a opaque golden color, not as light as i'd expect, usually these are a bit more pale in color. The taste was bready with orange on the back of the tongue, quite tasty. Aroma was all citrus, enticing. Mouthfeel was a little harsher than I would expect, but overall pretty damn good where it counts. I'll be back.

On tap @ The Library

Appearance: Cloudy pale golden color with a white head

Smell: Clean and subtle aromas of coriander, banana, and doughy yeast

Taste: More coriander than i prefer, but banana and yeasty esters are still there

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp, but could be less bitter; Smoother

Overall: i rarely thoroughly enjoy a beer in this style, but this has to be one of the better American ones iv had. Its nothing special, but it is just a well made, amped up witbier. Good job on this one SouthHampton!

L: This slightly amped up version of a Belgian Wit pours cloudy gold with a thin white foam cap. S: Spicy orange wheat aromas. T: Bready wheat, orange peel, citrus and spice. F: Medium light to medium body, soft medium carbonation. O: A little maltier than a standard wit but very pleasant, refreshing and drinkable.

Pours a nice light golden color with small head. Appears to be quite cloudy, with a light fruity smell. Very little lacing and carbonation. Taste is surprisingly light an pleasant, with a little alcohol aftertaste. Would definitely buy again.
