First had Florida Cracker poured from 12-oz. can, gift from a friend, into pilsner glass. A bit maltier than traditional, but a solid take on the Belgian White.

Can Date: 7/21/17
Palate Contaminants: other beer

Looks like white grapefruit juice with some fine head.

It smells like... fresh wheat. Plus there's a little bit of sweet floral something present. Almost cloves. As it warms up, I can't avoid the fresh banana bread.

Taste is moderately sweet banana bread with raisins. (I just report; you decide.) There's some savoriness, and I haven't had that from this style in quite some time. I'm glad to have that back. The citrus notes are notably non-acidic, and really seems to go in tandem with a blossom flavor. Sweetness is in the light-moderate range. Slight bitterness on the back end.

Feel is a bit thin for the type, and prickly carbonation comes out fairly easily.

From the bottom of the can: "CANNED ON 05/22/17"

Appearance: The body of the beer is a beige color that is very hazy. The head is medium-large, fluffy, and white. The head also has very good retention.

Aroma: The beer has a nice soft lemon coriander aroma.

Taste: There is a nice mix of what tastes like lemon, coriander spice, and peppercorn.

Mouthfeel: It is soft and smooth. The beer has a nice full texture but isn't heavy.

Overall: It is simply a well made and very clean beer with very good flavors. It is a very enjoyable beer to drink and I would recommend it.

I don't drink too many Wits so I'm not the best judge of character for this style. That being said, this is probably pretty good. Decent flavor but a bit thin. Has some Hefe taste and feel with hints of clove, banana, pepper, etc. Good finish with some fruit and yeast. Ok, maybe it's better than pretty good. I just don't care for the style. Figured I'd try it since I haven't had one in so long. Oh well.

Served in a pint from the draft.

Appearance: Hazy darker gold color with medium bubbles and a white head rising just about quarter of an inch. Slight sticky lacing.

Smell: Light banana skin and citrus fruit. Little bland but not bad.

Taste: Smooth malts and banana fruit, you feel orange and malts. It's a light feel which definitely accompanies a warm weather day.

Mouth: Bready citrus finish which feels a touch sweet. Not sticky but just enough.

Overall: Grabbed this little gem at a bar and grabbed another three glasses considering there wasn't much out there. Still worth grabbing if it ever crosses your eyes, Salud!
