served at brew pub.

A: lemonde color, but cloudy. Generous white, frothy head that has good retention and leaves the glass nicely coated with sticky lacing.

S: lemony and grassy smell over light malt base. Light hints of banana and clove.

T: Delicate but not 'light' flavor with notes of citrus, hay, light baked bread and noble hops. Sweet/bitter balance is excellent, as is the overall mix of flavors

M: medium-light body; good carbonation level.

O: Excellent for style! Very refreshing.

Straight forward. Tart. Nice appearance. The unmalted wheat is nice. Decent mouthfeel. Better than i remember. Very refreshing little brew. Not quite enough yeasty funkiness here.. It drives in the middle of the road.

A classic citrus wheat ale. Very refreshing with a nice hit of orange and a touch of coriander. It has enough abv to enhance, but not overpower.

Pours a cloudy, golden color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of cinnamon, sweet malt, coriander, slight yeast, and slight hops. Fits the style of a Witbier. Mouth feel is smooth and thick with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, citrus, coriander, and cinnamon. Overall, a good blend, body, and drinkability.

This is a nice, fairly authentic Belgian-style wit. Great aromas and flavors, only missing a bit of "cracked grain" character I remember in original examples. Also could use a bit more carbonation and drier, crisper finish, but those are just nuances. This is a solid beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A massive, frothy head crowns the cloudy honey colored liquid; impressive lacing action

Smell: Tangerine peel, cracker malt and a hint of coriander

Taste: Tangerine peel dominates the front end, with tangy wheat notes arriving in the middle; the coriander adds another dimension after the swallow but is overwhelmed by the citrus and wheat flavors

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body; slightly creamy; moderate carbonation

Overall: A very refreshing beer but lacks the subtlety of the better examples of the style; kind of a hybrid, American approach; great for the hot weather
