Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a very pale golden color, pretty clear with lots of visible carbonation, white soapy head left minimal lacing.

S- Big coriander and very light citrus.

T- Big coriander, some salty notes, and light citrus notes.

M- Pretty watery, low carbonation, light bodied.

O- A pretty pedestrian witbier. I love the style, but this one did not have much going on. Overall, it was pretty one dimension with very little citrus notes.

Bottle picked up at Homebrew Stuff.. Pours hazy pale golden.. not much head to speak of.. Pretty straight forward well made witbier... grainy/sweetish wheat with light orange peel.. Finishes pretty crisp.. Textbook witbier... Very refereshing.

500ml bottle from Trader Joe in Salem OR
$3.99
Beer pours a very pale yellowish ( one of the palest beers i have seen) with a large frothy, attractive white head.
Very yeasty, spicy aroma.., wheat of course and a bit of sour lemon scent.
Nice taste..lemongrass, black pepper, sour apples and coriander.
Surprsingly creamy smooth mouth feel..but ends dry..very good.
Super drinkable wit.....easy to put down.

Very light straw color with little to no head but reasonably high carbonation. Funky yeast on the nose with a touch of hay and sweet wheat. Light and mellow wheat flavor starts off but a yeasty funky blue cheese comes in strong and stays through the finish. A slight tangy tingly tartness comes through in the middle while a sweet white bread flavor finishes long. A little light while a little tart on the finish. An earthy feeling finishes long on the tongue. Overall this is a tasty beer, but I felt like this lacked some originality. There is a little too much funk flavor in this beer and that throws the whole thing off balanced. Its fine, but I feel like a little forced.
