Hazy golden yellow with a bright white head, decent retention and lacing. Very citrusy aroma, with lots of orange/tangerine rather than hoppy citrus. The yeasty wit character is there, but not as strong as in many other wit beers, and a bit of the raw wheat aroma comes through. The flavour is definitely orange citrus fruit with a bit of coriander spiciness and a light malt sweetness. There's a bit of bite from the carbonation, but otherwise the flavour is quite refreshing. The finish is a palate-cleansing, acidic and tart citrus flavour... very nice. High carbonation and light body without being watery at all. This would make an excellent session beer, light and flavourful without being overbearing. I look forward to my next opportunity to have a pint.

Classic cloudy yellow with a mottled, multicolored head that reminded me of something boiling on the stovetop.
Served in a traditional hefeweizen glass from a 22 oz. bottle. The server was careful to agitate the yeast before opening.

There are aromas and flavors of lemon and orange, white pepper and chalk, coriander and gum. Tart, it is well balanced between slick, candied texture and yeasty vitality.

Much lighter and more light golden than its bottled brother -- similarly, not nearly as hazed. Large white head. Light tangerine aromas but more lemon for some reason than the bottled. Very light but well spiced flavor -- all the standard goodies: lemon, cloves, tangerine. Has the same pretty crisp, dry finish. A prime summer offering, a great session beer, and very nice all around.
