I got the chance to go to the opening party and a local food/beer dinner at Beer'd where I've tried this beer both times.

I will start this by saying I'm not a huge witbier guy. However, this was a nice surprise. The citrus aroma is pleasant but made me think it would be followed by a fruity flavor. The taste though is less wheaty (i.e., bluemoonish) and more Belgian inspired (i.e., hoegaardeny) along with a light banana flavor which I liked. Super crisp mouth feel with very nice carbonation. I'm sure it doesn't hurt that the beer is so fresh when you get it right from the brewery.

This is a great flagship brew for Beer'd in that it's not over the top giving it a mass appeal but the flavor is complex enough that even the nerdiest of beer nerds can appreciate this quality offering right in line with this beer style. Keep it up guys & gals!

Had at the brewery yesterday, June 26. Poured a hazy straw color with a decent head. Smell was of some sweet citrus and a touch of yeast. The flavor profile tends to be more citrus as well, maybe it's a heavy application of coriander. Yeast and cracker malts in the background. Finishes a hair dry. The body was as to be expected, in the lighter range. Overall a great witbier.

Maybe a little light on the bananna and spices for a wit, which was fine by me, but a very drinkable and refreshing beer. Slightly crisp body with orange notes.

Not a wheat beer fan and this one, while well made, didn't change my mind.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy bronzed yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Light lacing becomes stringy and slides down. The smell started off with the orange peel with a doctored light biscuity malt. Light grassy tones permeate nicely. The taste started off with combined efforts of orange peel, orange, light lemon to be sweet yet semi-bitter. Its somewhat crisp and refreshing as it hits in the aftertaste. There’s a quick citrusy finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation is refined with a decent pounding from the bitterness. Overall, good session witbier and/or food beer. I’d have again with its respected food.

Poured from a 32 oz growler straight from the brewery.

Pours a hazy, golden orange color with a minimal white head. Hardly any lacing left around the glass.

The smell is very citrusy with notes of orange peel and tangerine. The sweet biscuity malt is also present, however I'm only picking up faint hints of banana and clove.

Citrus is once again at the forefront of the flavor. I also get notes of banana and bitter hops. The sweet malt character is quite pleasant and adds a nice balance. Not too "wheaty" for a Witbier.

The feel is medium-bodied with good carbonation. It's a very dry finish with flavors that don't linger on the palate for very long.

Overall, a fantastic version of a style I'm frankly not a big fan of. It's juicy, it's hoppy, and the malt really holds this beer together.
