A really nicely crafted Belgian Witbier. Hits all the good qualities for the style.

Pours a dull dandelion yellow with a slurry of haze, but not unappealing and a fuzzy finger of white foam.

Soft wisps of coriander and tea meld with aromas of orange zest and a funky and spicy Belgian yeast character.

Orange peel and coriander are apparent and deliberate, a bit over done. The Belgian yeast provides a welcome amount of spicy phenols to keep things fun, but somewhat dull.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, soft, crisp, watery on the back end.

Overall, this beer was very well done and is a nice example of the style, but needs a tune up. Easy drinking and on par, but needs some work.

Pours a light pinkish amber with cool light pinkish head. Smells pretty bad, but this sometimes happens with added fruit. The taste really makes up for it. Perfect balance of the blueberry & wheat. This is hard to pull off but they did it. Nice and light for a summer Florida day. 4.00

By far the best wit I have ever had, I am usually not a huge fan of the style but this hit the spot and was super refreshing. I hope they can it here soon.
