It's odd, getting ready to review this one, I honestly was ready to say this was a hefe that was mislabeled, but as I started to take notes, the clove and banna flavors subsided and the light pepper and slight sour notes came out backed by the citrus and grain flavors. The end result is a very refreshing and well put together wit.

Typical aroma for a Wit beer - wheat and a bit of herbal Belgian yeast esters. Taste follows with the same flavors, earthy yet fairly easy to drink. Flavors aren't as strong in the taste. Higher carbonation

Can dated 7/9/15 Pilsner glass.

A: pours a hazy gold, mild effervescence, two fingers bright white head, decent retention, very nice lacing.

S: Spices definitely come through on the nose; sweet maltiness, yeast, and clove.

T: lightly sweet arrival, spicing as kicks up across the middle, almond with the sweetness. Light bitterness to a fruity and incredibly clean finish.

M: lighter side of mid-bodied; prickly, but no carb to speak of. Exceptionally clean for an ale.

O: not a style I drink much of, but I'd put this ahead of Hoegaarden. Quite refreshing and summery.

Pours a clear golden orange with a thick, bright white head that leaves lacing. A very light smelling wit with banana and spices. A very refreshing and light bodied wit with nice fruit and yeast combo. Definitely not a European, but good.

Poured a golden color with a one-finger, white head of foam. It left a little lacing. It smelled of lemon, yeast and spices. There was a subtle fruity aroma. Mostly lemon and wheat. There was a touch of spiciness. It was crisp, sharp and light bodied.

Got this in a trade recently. First time I had tried anything from this Brewery, and typically I don't drink this type of beer...Really enjoyed what they did here. Haven't had a ton of this style to compare, but was quite refreshing with good flavor. Could definitely drink a few of these.
