Overall a decent wit. Peppery spiced with a pleasant touch of coriander and orange zest in the taste. Good feel and a cloudy look make for a refreshing Ohio brewed wit.

16 ounce can, canned on 10/06/14, can says 4.6% ABV. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The aroma is nice, the brew smells like coriander, orange peel, and wheat/grainy malt. I think the taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but to me the wheat/grainy flavor is slightly stronger than the coriander and orange peel ones. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit creamy and refreshing, and is easy enough to drink. Moderate carbonation. I'd probably enjoy this more on a summer day instead of a winter evening when it's in the 20's outside, but I liked this brew. I might have to buy another 4 pack soon!
