On tap at Top of the Hill.

Pours a cloudy orangish-golden color with a one-finger white head, looking as it should.

Standard wheaty aroma with orange peel and coriander.

It's funny that the description of this beer says, "Quite different and unexpected" whereas I found it similar to a lot of other American witbiers and almost exactly as I expected. Like a better Blue Moon really, with orange, wheat, and coriander. Simple but does the trick.

Medium-light body with a little less lively carbonation than I'd like in a wit.

I'd consider this about average for the style, maybe a tad on the high side.

Poured into a pint glass
Orange yellow - matched the orange garnish on the glass.

Smell strongly of wheat. Taste is rather weak. Not strongly alcoholic in flavor. Not strong in flavor at all, overall I didn't like it, as I prefer porters or stouts.
