Poured from a 12 oz bottle into the Duvel glass.

Pours a hazy straw color. Very murky. Head is about a finger of shaving cream consistency foam. Head retention is excellent.

Nose is very lemony with a hints of pine, wheat, cloves and just a touch of banana.

Very heavy wheat cracker taste with a good lemon complimentary flavor. Very slight banana on the swallow.

Very light and refreshing in body. Just about right for a lawnmower or pool beer.

Had this beer for the first time in Napa California, great beer with a light taste. Flavors of coriander, lemon grass and citrus. A good sipping beer on a hot day. Actually was my first craft brew, lead me to a whole new world of beer.

Clear golden color, light mouthfeel, high carbonation, citrus taste, smooth and clean tasting, overall an easy refreshing beer. Great for when you're drinking a lot.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance –is a pale murky yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is citrus with some wheat or grass tossed in. The taste is a surprisingly strong citrus rush with a nice wheat follow through. A real good witbier from Lost Coast.

Poured an opaque yellow gold, limited white head, dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. Flowery lemon and orange citrus in the aroma with just a touch of bread. Muted flavor, you get a little of the flowery citrus but no wheat. Very clean and easy to drink, somewhat juicy with just a touch of hop. Overall, not special but not bad, easy to drink. Would make a good quantity beer.
