Pours hazy with little head. Aroma is subtle, reminds me of a dulled down Allagash White. Not super carbonated, relatively light feel. Would have preferred a little stronger smell/taste but all around, definitely something I would have again. Pairs very nicely with a heavy meal.

bottom line - on draft, this is a very nice version of this style. Drinks like a slightly more fruity hefe weissen. Little clove, little orange. Maybe all the reviews below are from cans? Maybe I just got a killer batch.

Poured into a clear mug, the appearance was a semi-dark glossy yellow to amber color with a cap of a little white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some slight lace ran with the sips.
The aroma had some sweet citrus pulp and crushed coriander up front flowing into some semi-sweet wheat malts and a delicate little bit of biscuit-like sweetness.
The flavor was moderately sweet flowing on into the spices quaintly. Biscuit to coriander and citrus pulpy aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it Carbonation felt somewhat low, but I accepted it. ABV felt on par. Mostly sweet and light malty sort of finish.
Overall, not bad as an Americanized witbier, I'd have again preferably in the Summer.
