3.18/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Presented a clouded, pale straw-hued body with a slim, white head.

Smell: Soft, hewn hay, ultra fine pale malted barley. Only on a deep, sincere sniff does the beer reveal notes of spice and citrus. Really, a light aroma overall.

Taste: Pale malted barley, slight slim milk milkiness. Lightly sweet. A touch of coriander yields to the also fairly light orange peel flavor. The beer dries out fairly quickly, leaving a spicy, smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-low carbonation.

Overall: A competent witbier, though I'd prefer a bit more carbonation.

Pint at the Variety Playhouse.
Pale Hazy golden amber body. Weak head.

Spicy and, to a lesser extent, citrusy aroma.

The flavor is moderately strong for the style, with negligible banana and ample hints of lemon.

Light-medium body with good carbonation.

O: recommended lemony version of the style.
