DATE: April 23, 2016... OCCASION: seeking refreshment after a long day of charity car washing and baseball in the Meadows... GLASSWARE: Victory Rare Vos pint... APPEARANCE: sizzles as it pours a murky, bubbly yellow-blonde body with a rim of uneven of-white froth... AROMA: orange peel and lemon zest, with lightly toasted oats providing a pleasant, inviting aroma... apple and pear may come courtesy of the Northern Brewer hops, as does the wood pulp... PALATE: medium-bodied for a white ale; reasonably vibrant, with enough effervescence to refresh... leaves a slight aftertaste that is bitter and lemony... TASTE: Is the secret spice ginger? Grains of Paradise? Either way, the flavor is lemon, coriander, orange, apple and pear, and a sweetening pepper... the malts are not as pronounced as the label may suggest, but oats and toasted grains give the taste buds much to mull... OVERALL: not going to replace my favored wits, this is a serviceable, sessionable (although the label states 6% ABV) summer evocation... the sum is greater than the weight of its individual parts...

Cloudy yellow with a lot of carbonation. Decent smell of Orange and malt. Taste is fantastic but a little bit too much carbonation in my opinion.

This is one of the best wit beers I've ever had. Clean and crisp but still has a homemade feel to it.

Very good - local imitation of a La Fin Du Monde and they did a pretty good job. Nice bready, yeasty aroma and flavor.
