3.72/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

pours a slightly hazy tannish orange color with a nice thick foamy head. taste is of a citrusy foreground that melds together with grains. gives way to a nice bitter hoppy with the grainy taste lingering at the very end. anyone familiar with the stoopid line knows how hoppy they are. fortunately the folks at lagunitas know how to balance it just right. doesnt make me do a face like a lot of IPAs do. for the 6.3% ABV this is a very easy drinking light bodied beer. would drink again

This is not a wit, it's not even close. This is an IPA, with IPA hopppiness and character throughout. Bought this expecting a wit, giant waste of money. Don't waste your time, and shame on Lagunitas for trying to trick people into buying it.

Not a very tasty beer at all. Very bitter on the middle palate; overpowering for a wit.

Lagunitas tasting with DC.

Bottle to snifter.

LOOK: bright hazy yellow, medium white head, fades quickly.
AROMA: lemon first, then some hay and wheat (no egg), earthy smells(almost moldy).

TASTE: the wheat comes out here more, still lots of lemon comes along.
FEEL: a little grainyness, but Smooth. Light to medium body.

Good wheat.

This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy burnt yellow golden color with a slowly dissipating white foamy head. Rimmed with a foamy ring of white lace. The smell starts off with some fresh sweet grassiness. Subtle sweet pine. Witbier traits of sweet breadiness are deep down. Some black pepper comes out. Subtle lemon. The flavor leans pretty heavy on the black pepper up front and bold. Normal witbier yeastiness hits somewhat sticky and leads to a sly wet crisp finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionable crisp sticky feel to it. Overall, decent beer for what it is. Seems to want to try and hide some of the witbier traits just a bit.

12oz bottle no date. Poured into a tulip.

Pours a relatively clear, barely hazy, golden color--some particulates floating around. Huge three finger head that dissipates slowly.

Aroma is hops. pepper, lemon, and orange.

Taste is lots of lemon and some hops. More citrus than I was expecting from this beer. Some wheat for sure but the bitterness is in the forefront. Spices as well (coriander mostly).

Feel is light and smooth. Decently carbonated. Dry finish.

Overall, a pretty refreshing beer. As others have said, not the best example of this style. Lagunitas sure likes to hop up their beers. A decent beer, style points aside. Good citrus tones.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a foggy yellow with a some protein clouds suspended in the lower half of the glass. Two fingers of white head, with good retention, and lacing. Aroma is citrus, and floral hops with a little coriander and yeast spice behind. Flavor profile is floral hops throughout. Citrus hops, coriander, and yeast spice flicker in and out of the flavor profile, with a final lemon zest zing to it. Mouth feel is only a tad fizzy, with a medium thickness giving it a crisp summer-time feel overall. Overall, a hoppy beer with a zing of coriander. Plenty simple and crisp enough to be an excellent, tasty porch sipper.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a bottle.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Shaker pint. No freshness date.

A: Hazy, Arnold Palmer-like amber-lemonade hue with 1-finger of off-white, tightly bubbled head with average retention and incredible lacing collars.

S: Elements of a witbier with some bubblegum, pepper, and spice but really a hoppy Belgian pale ale with citrus lemon, grapefruit, and orange mingling with some earthy and resinous hopping.

T: Flavor blasts forth with Belgian yeast phenols and ultimately an ultra bitter tangy tongue lashing is delivered. More ripe pineapple and tart overripe crabapples with some sugary bubblegum fill out the yeast character which leaves a little room for a little sweeter pils graininess followed by abundant hopping with pine, orange, and grapefruit and some danker earthier flavors, finished with more crabapple yeast tartness. A little too phenolic for me but so flavorful. Shouldn't be a wit on BA -- Belgian pale ale to Belgian white IPA all the way.

M: Very dry with medium body and high carbonation.

O: They put wit on the label but I think the Stoopid says it all. I should've known better but glad I didn't!
