I expect everything from Cigar City to be at the very top. Cracker just seemed to me another quality Wit. Easy drinking, fun & yeasty, low carbonation. Just not a highlight in the genre.

Worth a taste.

From week of September 13, 2015

Hazy yellow, light head that left pretty quick. Great bready smell that carries through in taste with some citrus and spice. On the lighter side with good carbonation. Good Beer, had to bring some home.

Drinks more like a Gose than a Belgian. Spicy, lite, and slightly tart. Really good.

Very nice light brew with mild spice and fruit. Perfect for warm Florida days!

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tulip.
A- Unfiltered bready, lightly toasted yellow
S- Definite coriander and wheat with a hint of citrus
T- Same as the smell but with a slight tartness that I was not expecting.
M- On the lighter side but consistent with the style. Medium Carb.
D- I would definitely by this again if it was in my distro and Belgian Wits are not my favorite style. I enjoyed this.
