Poured into a pint glass. Semi-hazy straw color with a half finger head that lingers for a short time. Subtle nose of biscuit and spice. Taste is a wheat body with a nice dash of spice at the end to wake everything up. Medium body and medium carbonation with a clean finish.
Very ordinary but they really nailed the body and mouth feel- it wasn't too light. Decent whit.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Nice bit of haze. I get a bit of a yeasty smell then a whiff of orange. Decent enough Wit, but a bit too much corriander. Right amount of carbonation. Semi spicy after taste. All in all a decent beer that doesn't disappoint, but doesn't blow you away either.

Not the best wit I have had but wanted to try as I am sure I would never see it back home. Solid and fresh but a bit flat. I washed down some veal balls with it and it did the job just fine. As for a wit there are better out there. Cute label

Mild, zesty and refreshing, the folks at Tennessee Beer Works might have a brewery in the South but their hearts are in Belgium, at least when churning out their authentic tasting wheat beer.

Southern Wit rolls onto the nose with a bright and tangy perfume. Citrus, spice and the softness of fresh baking bread carry an appetizing scent. Its cloudy straw appearance crowns with an arid swath of sea foam. And those sweet, nearly doughy flavors rest on the front of the tongue like sugar cookie and a hint of sourdough.

As the middle palate unfolds, is sweetness lightens slightly and the fruit and spice character begin to build. Citrus flavors lead with a bold and radiant orange taste, followed by apple, pear and lemon. Slightly tangy, the fruit flavors are balanced by the spiciness of white pepper, chamomile, and the light herbal nature of green tea and sassafras. Light in bitterness, the ale has a glimpse of mild straw late on the palate.

Medium light and drying from its slight acidity and firm spicing rates, the witbier resists the urge to become an overly floral, fruity or sweet taste. Rather, its a slightly more spicy and rustic taste that harks back to historic versions of the style. Its aftertaste is citrusy, herbal and lightly spicy in a medium length linger.

Enjoyed it, but a bit sweet - definite honey flavors.

A: Cloudy light-yellowish orange, with a decent foamy white head.
S: Mostly the sweet wheat aroma comes through.
T: Coriander heavy, some orange and wheat flavors do come through though.
M: Light bodied and sessionable.
O: This is a good beer, though it's a little on the spicy/coriander heavy side of the Witbier spectrum. It reminds me a lot of the Namaste White.
