A: Pours a deep reddish brown with a short whitish head, some noticeable lacing.

S: Mostly sweet malt, some caramel and toffee, not really a ton going on here.

T: Malty with very little hoppy character...some caramel, a bit of spice, but otherwise not a ton.

M: Light to medium bodied and clean with low carbonation and bitterness.

O: Meh, I don't drink the style often so I'm not the best judge but I didn't particularly care for this. Overly malty to me and doesn't really do much for me.

Nice foam-up in the tall Witbier glass. Certainly on the red side of brown. Spritzy on the tongue.

Seems really heavy with the earthy taste. Kind of dank for the modest hoppiness. Light bodied. Not a hint of malty sweetness, though it's not really tart. Just dry. There is a flash of roasted malt in between the dirt and darkness. Aftertaste of bitter nut shells.

A nice mouthful of suds, but the flavor is bitter water with some dried mushrooms. I'll call it average for the style, but don't ask me to drink it. From the 12 oz can bought at the Grapevine in Denver.

Pours reddish brown with a solid head that fades slowly and leaves lacing a quarter-way down the glass. Smells of roasted malts and light caramel come from the head. Tastes consists of dominant malts with a light spice and caramel note before a barely hopped finish. Taste is slightly sweet upfront but balanced for the style. Medium body with medium carbonation that is just a little bit creamy. Good red that isn't spectacular but definitely solid.
