Light gold color, easy to drink. Taste a little citrus, nice!

Thanks again for sharing, Bobby.

A: The pour is a hazy light yellow/straw color with just a small white head.

S: Starts off with a very bright citrus and citrus peel aroma. There is a lot of wheat and some light spices, which is pretty much how I like my witbiers. It's very fruity, which is sort of surprising. And of course, there's a bit of yeast.

T: The flavor is also very fruity, which you don't normally expect for a witbier, but I think it's great. Heavy on the citrus with only mild spices. Lots of wheat bread and sweet malts with a touch of yeast.

M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: This was very light and refreshing and had very nice aromas and flavors. One of the best witbiers I've had.

12 ounce single from Bruisin' Ales in Asheville, North Carolina. The first digits on the 'Brewed On' date are smudged, so, it's either from August (08) or all the way back in March (03).

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, flaxen-hued body with just oven an inch of sturdy, whitish foam.

Smell: Soft aroma of wheat berries with welcome notes of wildflower honey, savory spice, and fresh orange peelings.

Taste: Lightly sweet, lightly tangy, honey-hinting wheat malt, maybe some pils malt in the mix as well, given a slight yeasty dough character. The sweetness is complimented by a spicy whole coriander taste and a zip of zesty orange peel. A bit more citrus and fluffed wheat for the easy-going finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: I enjoyed it. Tasty and refreshing all the way down to the final sip.
