Cloudy golden-orange color. Minimal head. Aromas of orange and wheat, with a taste profile that matches. I really like how the orange is just a hint, though. Bit of a bite to it, quite a bit of carbonation. Finish that lingers for quite a while.

Nice semi-cloudy gold in color with very minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is extremely light with just a touch of orange peel. Taste is cool with some watery orange flavor and the feel is reminiscent of a wheat. Finish s clean with a touch of a creamsicle at the end

Good very light witbier with a ton of orange citrusy flavors on the nose and palate. Delicious and refreshing with some southern Mexican food but as a standalone beer it's nothing too outstanding.

pound for pound i reckon this is one of the better beers these guys make on a regular basis. its different as the wit style goes, and they have jazzed it up just right. hazy but less pale in color than others, more golden than yellow, with a short lived airy white head. the aroma here is awesome, orange blossom honey, the orange is there for sure, but its sweet, floral, and in front of the belgian yeast, but works well in concert with it. fruity and sweet at the same time, grounded only barely by the sturdy wheat malt. the flavor is awesome and a lot like the aroma, really floral citrus and honey notes, completely herbaceous, springy, polleny, fresh, zesty, living. its great. a little surprised to see this rated so low here, maybe its because to style its pretty out there, but you have to appreciate the complexity in the flavor. the orange i awesome, the blossom element is great, honey all the way through it, there has to be honey in here right?! carbonation sags just a little, and its not so light as to be an all day crusher, but i like it having a little substance to support all the flavor. this is great beer, tastes like no other wit out there, but yet is not at all overdone. i was real pleased with this, and think its far better than its current ratings...

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
