A - a smidgeon darker than I expect for a wit, with a white foam that forms no lasting impression.

S - aroma is interesting because there are elements of honey, citrus, and peach. Makes me wonder about how the aroma is created. Despite this complexity, I'm not sure I find these aromas all that appealing. There's something about them that is off, like an artificially flavored candy.

T - surpringly little in here that reminds me of wit. It's watery and sweet. The sweetness makes those aroma elements cloying. I am reminded of a brand of honey lemon ginseng tea that I do not particularly like but try periodically to calibrate my taste buds.

M - watery and coming up short in carbonation.

I find this to be like one if those Leinies wheat beers; something seems artificial and cloying and it diminishes the experience.

12oz into a tulip.

A: Pours a clear gold with a small white head.

S: Smells of mild raw wheat, clovey esters, a bit sweet.

T: Taste brings subtle wit esters, light hop bitterness, wheat, watery finish.

M: Light-bodied with light carbonation.

O: Either the yeast strain used here is not very potent, or they didn't give it much time to do its thing...this is much too watery and toned down, closer to a bland American wheat ale than a witbier.
