Appearance: Poured with a solid finger of head that retained exceptionally well and produced some minor lacing. The body has some clouding but not so much that you can't see the abundant cabrbonation.

Smell: There is a strong backbone of wheat malt with a very mild citrus note. It's a nice smell, but even with ample warming, it's not as strong as I'd like him.

Taste: Starts with a healty wheat, hit of wheat malt that turns to a sweet citrus taste. Very mild, very easy, very refreshing, really the perfect beer for hot florida weather.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with excellent transistioning, the carbonation is nice and foamy but the aftertaste is notably absent apart from a brief dry bready snap.

Drinability: Easy on the system, exceptionally light and very refreshing. Light bodied, and really an excellent summer drinker.

Final Thoughts: I finally got to visit Florida and knew I had to try Cigar City. This one was one of a couple beers I managed to snag whlile here. This is an awesome great hot weather beer. All in all an excellent Wit. Thumbs Up
