Not bad for a Wit, but very light and not a lot of taste. Just does not have a lot of character, average at best.

12oz bottle I picked up at the brewery around this time last year and forgot about in my fridge. Poured into a cervoise, the brew appears a clear yellow color with a white head.

The smell is herbal to grassy with mild sulfur and a sweetness almost like corn which is kinda peculiar.

The taste is also interesting with the previously mentioned corn-like sweetness contrasted by herbal to grassy bitterness and a slight mineral aspect. I think I did this beer a great disservice by forgetting it in my
fridge all these months.

It is light bodied, moderately carbonated and overall interesting and typical for a wit in an american way void of any yeastiness and spice.

12 oz bottle, bottled on 3/18/15, poured into a standard pint glass.

A - Cloudy, fizzy, pale straw gold, with just a hint of lace to speak of.

S - Spices, bread, banana and clove, some pear.

T - Taste follows the nose, with a slightly peppery finish.

M - Medium to medium low carbonation, which is surprising based on the pour. Finishes somewhat clean, with a few moments of flavor linger-ation.

O - A tasty wit, been pleased with Mother Earth's efforts so far.
