Hazy gold with a slight orange tinge and a receeding white head. Nice look. Smells yeasty with slight spice. I'm not detecting the citric elements. This has an understated yeast and grassy flavor with some light spice on the finish. I like it but I'd like it better if it had more spice or bite. Sort of medium carbonation with medium mouthfeel. I bet this would be a good starter wit or Belgian for someone who doesn't like a lot of spice or bite to their beer.

Pours light hazy, light gold. Thick, medium white head that fades slowly to a rocky head with good lacing.

Smells yeast funk, orange peel, citrus, spice and light grassiness.

Tastes citrus, grassy, bready malt, clove, yeast funk and Orange peel. Finish is dry with citrus peel and spice linger. Medium body and smooth, lightly fizzy medium carbonation.

Appearance is a murky yellow with white head

Smell is malty with some fruit hints

Taste is typical wit beer..good fruit flavor with a wheat base

Feel is somewhat more dry than other wits

Overall a good beer that was part of a variety pack. Definitely drinkable which is surprising given the 6+ ABV

Rivertowne Grateful White has a thick, cream, off-white head, a murky, orange-gold appearance, which becomes murkier, after the "swish & pour", and lots of lacing, left behind, on the glass. The aroma is of sweet white wheat bread, some spice, and a touch of banana, and a touch of bubble gum. Taste is of yeasty, zingy, sweet, fruity white wheat bread, some mild, light crust, and white pepper. Mouthfeel is low-heavy, and Grateful White finishes medium white.
