Canned on 6/22/18. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy dark yellowish golden; big chunky eggshell white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have a nice amount of wheat and citrus. Some banana and bubblegum. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. Some lemon and orange along with some more banana and bubblegum. Some spices. Wheat and malts do their thing. Some grains. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid witbier. It's more or less what you would expect from the style. Not bad at all.

It has a bright white head on top of pale and hazy golden body. The head fades to thin layer of slick foam that only makes a little slick lacing. The aroma is somewhere between a Belgian White and a German Hefeweizen. I get notes of banana and clove as Band-Aid like estery yeast. The flavor is the same as the aroma with a dry mellow hop finish.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow color with little to no head and slight carbonation. Smell is typical for the style. The taste is mild, with hints of banana. The feel is still fairly light as well. Not the best Hefe out there but worth a try.

Cloudy, very pale straw colored with a white head, dissipates; Lovely ale aroma; Mild citrusy flavor with a surprising sweetness in the first drink. Mild tanginess with moderate carbonation. A pleasant drinkable beer. Good with a meal.

Second time: I had forgotten having this beer before. The aroma and taste were lessened the second time around, the aroma is rather subdued, and the taste also, the first impression being one of blandness. I reduced my rating. Is it the beer? or is it me?

Third time: Not so bad. a pleasant beer. My first impression reinforces my first reviews. Then it finishes blandly, reaffirming my second review. Same question. Is it the beer? or is it me?

L: Cloudy, murky, yellow body with just a hint of orange. Lots of frothy white head that leaves a bunch of lacing along the side, and more carbonation than I know what to do with.

S: I get spice, citrus, coriander and wheat. The wheat and spice are the most notable. Not extremely well-balanced, but wild for better and for worse.

T: I get loads of wheat, spice and coriander with just a little fruit kick, just because there wasn't enough kick in this beer. Not subtle or well-balanced, just delicious and a fun beer to drink.

F: I love how rich the beer is. I wouldn't call it creamy, but there's definitely a heft here that helps round out a beer that may otherwise have its eccentricities take over. Lots of carbonation make the beer very active on the tongue. Leaves a refreshing bitterness on the tongue after the drink.

O: Yea, I like it quite a bit. More interesting than many other witbiers and its richness is very in tune with my personal preferences. One of the better summer beers for me.
