Poured from the tap at the Taco Mac in Atlanta, GA. The appearance is a clear pale yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is fairly yeasty with some grass. The taste is sweet grass and maybe coriander. A real good beer.

Tap takeover at Bittercreek.. Pours mostly clear straw golden with a nice enough white head... Wheat malt with hints of coriander and perhaps some lime zest or orange peel.. A bit grassy.. Okay Witbier... but only okay.

On tap at Yard House in Northridge, CA.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, earth, citrus zest, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but it's quite bitter and the bitterness lingers long after each sip.

Serving type: on tap.

A - Crystal clear pale amber body with foamy white head. Decent retention and nice lacing.

S - Lots of citrus

T - Incredibly dry. Citrus and floral hops. Not a whole lot of malt to speak of.

M - Light body with moderate/high carbonation. Somewhat thin and watery.

O - Good but fairly one note. Lack of body leads to seltzer-like mouthfeel. Not bad but not something I'll pick up again.
