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.

I’m going to be honest, straight 5s all the way through this is the best beer I’ve ever had, this put all beers to shame. Not too hoppy, the perfect taste. It’s one of those to enjoy on a hot summer day!

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass

L: Lightly hazed golden pour with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Super lacing.

S: Tart and citrusy... wheat, lemongrass, and coriander.

T/F: Wheat/grain backbone... citrus and spice flavor. Lemon/orange rind, mild spice, and a little bit of yeast/ester thrown in. Well carbonated... light bodied and refreshing. The finish is more citrus and spice mixed with faint banana.

O: One of the better wits I've had. Great take on the style from an awesome brewery.
