I had this Wit at the Cisco Brew Pub at Boston Logan Airport last night. It is not a top notch and I found it a bit bland but refreshing.

(L) It had a hazy yellow hue and a very thin head.

(A) A modest but pleasant aroma, a bit citrusy and a bit floral.

(T) Wheat, citrus, barely noticeable hop spice.

(F) Light with significant carbonation, easy drinking, and refreshing.

Bottle.

A: Perfumy, lightly spicy, faint citrus, coriander that finishes with a light malt sweetness.

A: Straw colored, totally clear, with a thin white head that settles into a fine film above the glass.

T: Lightly floral, with some spice, citrus, and coriander. The beer has a light sweet, honey character with a grainy finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation; drinks a little thin with no creaminess or tartness.

O: Alright; definitely drinkable, though the aroma and flavor is perfumy, floral, and lacks much citrus. The beer also drinks a bit thin and could use more body.

I tried this on a recommendation from a co-worker. I really wasn't sure what to expect at first sip. I'm not one for a floral aroma when it comes to beers but this one was a taste I knew but couldn't place right away. When poured properly it formed a nice tight head which I enjoyed especially on a lighter beer. As I was sipping along I finally realized what the taste was. It was rose water. I'll certainly be looking for a 6-pack of this for the fridge.
