Per a sample at the brewery. Pours a cloudy yellowy color with darker straw hues throughout. A persistent rocky white head with good retention and lace.

The nose is soft overall but more noticeable yeasty characters. A hint of malt but more generic than anything. Some hint of lemon and citrus but light. The yeast really comes out with banana note on par with some hefe's. Some minor dirty drains/sock notes but light. Some pepper and coriander but limited.

The taste is similar. The malt comes out more with a soft biscuit almost flour-esk. Some hop notes as well, more earthy. The spices are limited and would like a bit more for balance. Some white peppery notes and a touch of coriander but light. The yeast is more in check but still a big banana note that is a bit much for a wit. Good fruity notes linger with orange and lemon notes.

The body is light. Preference wise I would like a bit more depth, but ok for style. Carbonation is big but ok for style. Overall the banana notes are a bit off for me. I would like more of the fruity and spicy notes but still a good easy drinking beer.

16 oz can. Pours clear straw yellow with a big meringue-like white head that retains well and laces the glass some. The second pour is a bit hazy.

The aroma is sweet wheaty malt and some funky fruit and banana with a bit of coriander and perfume.

The flavor is sweet wheaty malt with musty yeast and very little spice. The finish is pretty bitter for the style. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with very spritzy active carbonation.

Overall, meh for a wit. It's a bit sweet and musty with no spice.

Had a pint at Root Down in DIA. The spices come on too strong for a great wit, but the body and backing wheat are right. Lovely, but I'd prefer an Allagash White.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Look: Hazy opaque orange. Two fingers of silky white head. Light carbonation.

Smell: Wheaty. Light floral citrus. Some pepper.

Taste: Bready wheat. Pretty spicy. Crisp citrus refreshment. Pretty average.

Feel: Good body on this one. Crisp and refreshing. Easy to put away. Fairly dry finish.

Overall: Not bad for a $10 4-pack of tall boys. Others I'd rather have but this one isn't offensive in any way. Just don't stand out.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is a hazy murky soft golden color. An impressive bright white fluffy head hangs around for a long while, leaving bubbly, airy lacing.

The aroma is sweet and fruity, maybe even tangy somehow. A little bit of banana peel in the finish.

The taste is really sweet and malty up front. A lot of bread and grain notes mix with banana and subtle tropical fruits.

The mouthfeel is somewhat light and carbonated.

Overall, a refreshing witbier with good character. Would be a great deck beer in warmer months.
