A - Medium golden beer with a bit of a white head and some lace on the sides.

S - A wheat smelling witbeer with some citrus and a bit of coriander.

T - Light, crisp flavor with a little bit of yeast and a fairly crisp finish. Some orange and a touch of spice.

M - Medium bodied, good carbonation.

O - Solid witbier, nothing mind blowing, but easy enough to drink.

Light hazy yellow, extremely yellow. Very light, totally white head.

Smell is very clean and full of wheat and yeast.

This is the most low key Cigar City beer I have ever had, and I like it. Very much a classic white wheat ale. Hops are just a whisper. Tastes like some bitter orange peel with slight lemony tartness. Light bitterness in the finish.

Feels wet and dusty. Light tingle.

20 oz on tap, straw yellow clear like a light lager but damn is the look misleading! Candy sweet funky yeast and pale malt steal the nose, wow! This is a great smelling brew! Taste follows the nose - orange peel, clove, light maltiness, candy sweet yeast funk, light citric hop bite at the end. Carbonation is beautiful & so is this brew!

On tap at CCB

A-Pours a semi hazy straw yellow with a one finger white head that has good retention that leaves decent amounts of lace.

S-Citrus and wheat are all that I am picking up. Its ok, nothing that really rocks my world.

T-Follows the nose with wheat and citrus hops leading the way with a touch of some kind of spice that I can't put my finger on. Once again, its ok, but doesn't rock my world.

M-Light bodied and crisp with a dry finish.

O-This one was ok, but nothing I'd seek out again. Wish I could give this one a 3.25 overall, but I can't...so I'll give it a 3.5.

Pours a cloudy gold color with a two finger head into my bruery tulip with intense lacing. Aroma of hops, spices(especially coriander) and orange. Taste follows the nose, lightly sweet but not overdone, bitterness of hops balances. Mouthfeel is good, maybe a little too carbonated but not crazy. I love this beer, it's the best representation of the style to me.
