A summer seasonal Wit/tripel cross on tap at the Atlanta Yard House.

A: looks like a wit beer: very hazy light yellow with a very good head.

Aroma: refined wheat beer with a hint of orange peel.

Flavor: lightly tart and bitter, wth building wheat and baked bread flavors.

Fee: light body; ecellent, soft carbonation.

On-tap at Monk's Café after meeting the brewer(ess?).

Pours an almost opaque lemon-yellow color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of light malts with mild amounts of wheat twang. Also present are large amounts of floral aromas with moderate amounts of light citrus.

Tastes good. Soft light malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by solid light citrus flavors. Midway through the sip moderate amounts of earthy hop flavors make a brief appearance before giving way to wheat twang. The wheat and citrus flavors carry through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have another.

Overall I was a fan of this beer - not quite a traditional wit but with very subtle differences. Worth a shot.

On tap at Rose & Crown.

Pours hazy yellowish in color with a lasting two-finger fluffy white head.

Nice aroma - very wheaty with citrus peel, Belgian yeast, and a little banana.

Well-balanced and tasty, only slightly sweet, with a very light wheaty taste, orange and lemon zest, Belgian yeast, and spice.

The mouthfeel is amazing on this beer. Incredibly silky and smooth, like air almost. Medium-light body, but not at all watery, just incredibly smooth.

A very nice witbier overall. Extremely drinkable.

On tap in a tulip glass at Pizzeria Paradiso, DuPont Circle Washington, D.C.:

The beer appeared a nice, opaque bright orange, with a thin white head, which I will attribute to the bartender.

A nice aroma, what you would expect from the style...a sweet malt presence with floral and citrus hops.

The taste of the beer was good...that nice wheat backbone with hints of the citrus hops as well as a nice strong spice and pepper.

The beer had a lighter feel to it, as expected, but was very refreshing, it had good carbonation, it was smooth and I finished it too quickly. Overall, a very good beer.

On tap at Bottleworks.

Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of white head, good retention.

Smell is soothing clove and coriander, a bit of straw and a hint of yeast.

Taste is wheaty, barnyard up front, lots and lots and lots of hay. A bit of clove toward the end. The yeast is present, but overpowered by the horsey taste.

Easy drinking, smooth, and light bodied.

Great beer.

On tap at Glendale Yard House, one of the Belgian samplers, so had to try a full glass.
Served in a goblet, murky light yellow with a thick head. Foam settles to a thick film, full lines of lace after every sip.
Smell is of malty grains, some spiciness, and yeast.
Taste is much the same, finishes with spicy bitterness.
Lots of carbonation gives a crisp and tingly mouth feel.
Overall, good beer, smooth and easy to drink. Nice combo of wit and tripel
