On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours an opaque golden-orange color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of light citrus - orange and lemon - with hints of coriander.

Tastes good. Wheat flavors serve as the background and give plenty of room for big amounts of citrus, mostly orange with just enough tart lemon flavors to balance things out. The spiciness is not as detectable as it is in the aroma.

Mouthfeel is good. There's a solid thickness with soft carbonation.

Drinkability is great. I finished one glass easily and could have a lot of these.

Overall I'll follow the trend and say this is a great summer beer. Worth a shot.

A top-notch Wit beer from 5 Seasons Westside. Perfect for sipping on their upstairs deck while people watching or gazing at the skyline. Pours a nice hazy dark golden with a fluffy white head that sticks around. Lose the orange slice- an enexpected faux-pas at a place like this that is serious about its beer. Smells of orange and lemon citrus, and a light, fresh, wheaten graininess. Tastes wonderfully tangy and fairly complex for the style with lots of orange zest, lemon juice, and soft wheat. Just enough sweetness to avoid a pucker. Crisp and wonderfully drinkable, I really love the orange notes in this and the zestiness. Great summer beer.

On tap at the brewpub.

Pours a shockingly cloudy light yellow orange. It looks like a slightly milky orange juice with a small bubbly white head that doesn't last long and leaves no lacing.

The aroma is fairly faint a dominant wheat sweetness, definitely bananas, complemented by what smalls like lemons and a bit of spices, probably the coriander I'm getting.

The taste is a bigger, better version of the aroma, starting with a lemon zest and orange peel kick up front that gives way to the sweet wheat and malt backbone. The spices definitely make themselves known in the finish with a lingering spiciness.

The mouthfeel is slick with little carbonation and very crisp and refreshing overall.

This is an exceptionally drinkable wit that balances the sweetness perfectly in the taste with plenty of spices and citrus. A top notch summer beer.
