Reviewed 1/1/2010 (Draft @ Flying Saucer, Houston, TX):

Pours a light golden yellow color body, with a small frothy white head, diminished. Spicy aroma, sweet, maybe coriander. Strong. Sweet spicy coriander taste. Very clean aftertaste. Very light tasting. Light but filling. Too much sweetness after awhile.

Wheat, coriander, lemon zest, and a bit of yeast on the nose. Citrus and wheat on the palate, finishes with a sweetness, possibly from the coriander. Light and refreshing on a hot day.

Seven-day-old growler courtesy of htomsirveaux. Shamefully served in a Dave & Buster's daquiri glass (not mine, I swear) that, quite honestly, had some qualities of a tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear yellow, with gold highlights throughout. A classic, translucent gold, quite standard for the style. Unfortunately, only a small head, though it doesn't kill the appearance.

The smell is pretty classic. Citrus aromas and Belgian yeast, with a very interesting spice mix. I can pick up some coriander, which meshes nicely with the citrus fruits. A strong wheat presence, too.

Taste follows up closely on the smell. Corn, coriander, and a frankly indiscernible but nonetheless pleasing blend of spices. Some what elements. There's also a slightly off vegetal note, but it's not terribly distracting.

The mouthfeel was, sadly, fairly undercarbonated. Despite flawless packing on htomsirveaux's part, I appreciate that this week-old growler naturally lost quite a bit of carbonation in transit.

Should I ever make my way to Texas, I'll be excited to try this beer on tap. A nice take on the style - (512) is a brewery I'll be keeping my eye on.

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.
