Appearance: light head on the pour. Golden bright yellow color. Sticky lacing left behind.

Smell: some easy wheat and oats on the front. Bright hops additions on the body.

Taste: gummy hop body is well done. Some rounded wheat is felt on the body with lingering hops. Nice dry oates are felt on the back end.

Mouthfeel: crisp and really drinkable.

Overall: if you are a wit fan this is definitely worth a try. Hop additions are really well done.

I think this beer may have been an old bottle or maybe a bad batch. I'm almost sure that this beer shouldn't have been as bad as it was. I like most Wit beers but this one fell through the cracks for me. It's almost tasted sour, and nowhere near as refreshing as it should have been. Anyway this brew was a cloudy yellow color, with a lot of lively bubbles in it that tingle your mouth.

Poured a hazy yellow with a small head with lttle retention. There was hardly and lacing at all left on the glass. It smelled of wheat and some spiciness from the yeast. There were also some notes on citrus. The smell was very faint though and I felt that I had to work for it a bit too much. This beer tasted kind of like an average tasting wheat beer to me. There was some citrus and spice notes. The mouthfeel was pretty light, carbonation was okay, and it went down decently smooth. This beer was decently drinkable. I think it would go pretty good on a hot day at the beach. There wasn't too much about this beer that really stood out to me too much, but I think I would try it again.

Cloudy and yellow with a burst of carbonation that forms about a half-inch of head then quickly falls to a collar of bubbles. Smells of ciitrus. Fairly thick body. Surprising amount of bitterness. Peppery towards the finish. Not sure of this in production anymore, but it tasted relatively fresh. A good spring beer.

On-tap in an imperial pint glass.

A- Hazy, golden color I'd expect for the style and about finger thick head. Good, sticky rings left on the glass.

S- Citrus and wheaty qualities. Added spice, a grains of paradise/black pepper aroma.

T- Much as the aroma would suggest. A lot of citrus and the peppery spice combined with the wheaty flavor.

M- Pretty smooth, with a bit of graininess. A little puckering/drying effect from the citrus qualities.

D- It's an easy summer drinker.

Poured to a hazy light yellow with little head or lacing. Aroma was faintly spices and wheat, but I had to work hard to get that. Mouthfeel was a little on the thin side, though I did notice a slight tingle. Taste was more of the muted spice of the nose, and the finish was short and non-descript.

Not much to this one

12oz. Rigorous pour with a swirl of the bottle towards the end of the pour to loosen the yeast sediment reveals a chalky, opaque, hazy yellow ale topped with a rather thin white head. It does, however hold some retention and leaves some sticky lacing on the glass. Aromas were of wheat and fruity Belgian yeast with hints of banana and slight citrus zest, albeit very faint. Tastes were good - spicy, wheaty, fruity, and yeasty with a slight nuttiness and tartness on the finish. Little carbonation leads to a light-to-medium body, which made it seem somewhat heavy for a wheat ale, although I personally prefer a heavier mouth-feel, so it was ok for me. Overall, I really enjoyed this offering - especially if you ignore the style that it falls into - but as a Witbier it is good, but there some flaws if you compare it to other more traditional ales in its category. I could easily buy a 6 of this and be happy with my purchase.
