On tap at the Draught House in Austin.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is wheat and coriander, with some other spices as well. The flavor is mostly coriander and wheat with only a little orange peel. There are some spicy hops in the flavor as well. Medium mouthfeel and medium-high carbonation.

A: Pours hazy with a slight orange color. Looks like any good wit should. Slight head when served to me.

S: Good fruity smell to the beer. Easy to pick out certain citrusy aromas as well.

T: Really impressed by it for being a Texas Witbier. It has a great flavor to go with the aroma.

M: Standard for a witbier. Slight carbonation.

D: Easy drinkability. If it is available, I have no issue getting it.

I am not a fan of wit beers or grapefruity beers but this one was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the slight citrus note in the smell as well as the subtle undertone once on the palate. The wheat and grapefruit where perfectly balanced to make a delicious beer. It probably helped that I was sitting in a non air conditioned bar in 90 degree heat, but still a palatable beer.

Split a pint with the wife at yesterday's (512) spring open house.

This wit was served a cloudy, peach-color with a finger or so of white head. Smell is full of clove and wheat, nice and light. I also taste plenty of clove, along with bubble gum, citrus, and coriander in this lightly spicy beer. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy and pleasant, and on a warm spring day, this was one easy beer to drink.
