A: Just off-white head that was 1-2 fingers. Beer color is a golden yellow, and slightly hazy.

S: An appealing mix of wheat, citrus and yeast.

T: A good amount of wheat, followed by some citrus and fruit. There is also some bitterness and spice towards the end to keep it interesting. The finish leaves the mouth a little dry.

M: Medium bodied. A little higher carbonation gives it a lot of mouth feel.

O: Enjoyable. Well balanced, with plenty going on in the flavor department.

On tap at the Common Table 2nd Anniversary Party.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is very nice with a lot of wheat and orange citrus notes, which are complimented by some coriander and quite a bit of Belgian yeast. The flavor is more of the same, with a little bit of yeast funk, as well as some pepper, orange, coriander and wheat. There is a touch of hop bitterness in the beer which makes the beer easy to drink. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.

On tap at Downhouse in Houston, TX. A lovely hybrid style of a Saison and Wit.

A: Pours cloudy/hazed yellow/golden color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Earthy, fruity, and spicy. Orange peal, coriander. Husky wheat. Then a lingering hop bitterness shows up. The hops start out subtle, but build and lingers on. Which I think really pulls this together.
T: Follows the nose. Earthy, grainy malts. Peppery spice, coriander, orange peal. Again the wheat is there. Hops in the finish. That leaves a great snappy bitterness that pulls everything together.
M/D: A medium body and crisp carbonation. Snappy and refreshing. Smooth at the same time. So easy to drink. I don't know the alcohol, but a great beer to quaff and enjoy in the summer. Enough character to drink anytime though.

This is great. A wonderful Wit, and something that I want around year round. Well done.
