12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy and cloudy burnt yellow with an eggshell white head that fades leaving solid retention and okay lacing. The aromas are subtle. Malts are present. Lots of bread with hints of corn. Subtle citrus notes. It doesn't really smell like a witbier. The flavors are clean and refreshing. Lots of fresh grass. Hints of orange and lemon. Not much of a yeast presence. Solid malt backbone. Alcohol goes completely unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's light with active carbonation. It's very fluffy and smooth. Extremely quaffable.

This might not be what I personally look for in the style, but it's very refreshing. It just doesn't have much going on at all.

Bottle poured into a wine glass. This Wit pours a hazed golden with a light cap of foam.

Aroma of wheat and yeast and a touch of cutrus. Breaks down to neutral and sweet fruit with warming. A delicate style in the end. Alas charachter building is not a strong suit here. In the end an easy quaff but one without much defining character

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass

L: orange / golden color. Good level of carbonation and a nice head (but it disappeared after a few minutes)
S: citrus aromas; not too strong but very nice
T: very nice tasting beer. orange and spice flavors at a good level.
F: smooth drinking beer

Overall : a good beer for drinking on a summer afternoon. good, taste and refreshing. I will be looking for this next time

L: Bright orange, moderately hazy, head dissipates almost immediately after pouring.

S: Musty grapes, honey, spices (smells like DFH's Midas Touch). Maybe a hint of citrus. Does not smell anything like what I was expecting.

T: Beginning of the sip tastes kinda like a bad version of DFH's Midas Touch. Then near the end of the sip one gets more of a malty orange. Not particularly great.

F: Moderately full-bodied, and moderately syrupy. Overall, much thicker than I expected. I was hoping for something light and refreshing, but this is not.

O: I wouldn't call this a "bad" beer, but I certainly would not call it a "good" beer (maybe not even mediocre).
